Hi friends! Have you seen the new Colorado Craft Company November Release?? It’s full of Christmas goodies! I have a set of 6 cards, with matching envelopes, to share today, using 3 of the new stamp sets. I also have a Free Shipping sales code for you to use: FREESHIPPINGAC. This is good through November 9th, 2020.
I started by trimming 6 card stock panels to A2 size, 2 panels for each color. I picked ink that was a few shades darker for each card stock. When mass-producing, a stamp positioner is everything! I positioned my Big & Bold Nordic Snowflakes in my MISTI, and stamped the panels. Once finished, I blended ink on the edges. I set the panels aside for a bit to let the inks dry.
I prepped my panels heavily with an Embossing Magic Bag, getting them ready for heat-embossing. (This is a must-have tool for embossing. It helps soooo much to keep your projects free from random embossing flakes.) I stamped the snowflakes twice, using Versamark Ink Pad. I poured Brutus Monroe Alabaster Embossing powder over the snowflakes, tapped off the excess powder, and used my heat tool to melt the powder. After all of the panels were done, I trimmed them to 4×5.25 inches. I picked a sentiment from the new Lovely Legs-Winter Season-Poinsettia stamp set to white heat-emboss.
Moving on to the card bases, I decorated the inside of each card base before attaching the front panels.
I picked a sentiment from Holiday Wishes stamp set. Again, I set up my MISTI for quick stamping. I added a coordinating snowflake to finish the inside.
Since I had this gorgeous snowflake stamp in my MISTI, I decided to dress up coordinating envelopes. I stamped the front bottom left corner, then moved on to the back.
The circle sentiment is another stamp from Holiday Wishes. I added adhesive to the backs of card stock, die-cut the circles, and stamped the circles with a template I had set up in my MISTI. Super easy envelope sealers!
Card Stock & Inks:
- Concord & 9th Dove Card Stock
- Concord & 9th Mushroom Ink
- MFT Ripe Raspberry Card Stock
- The Stamp Market Fuchsia
- MFT Tropical Teal Card Stock
- Concord & 9th Peacock Ink
I hope I have helped with ideas on assembly-line card-making. This is such a fun way to make stationery for yourself, or to gift to others. Thanks so much for stopping by!

What lovely cards. I’ve just recently discovered Colorado Craft Company and have now subscribed to your blog. This is my first visit. Look forward to many more.
Welcome! And yes, 3C is wonderful!
Beautiful, beautiful cards.
You know, I looked at the snowflakes the day of the big reveal and thought: I already have quite a few snowflakes. And I did not order this set. Now I am looking at your gorgeous cards and thinking: I should have gone w/ my first instinct and ordered that set, too. Well, luckily, I know how to fix this issue! LOL… Thanks for sharing your absolutely beautiful work so as to inspire all of us!

p.s. Stationery has an “e”. “Staionary” with an “a” means “not mobile.”

Gorgeous Nordic Snowflake stamped Christmas cards and Envelopes set. Yes, what did we ever do without MISTI!
Luckily, I have only been stamping for a few years, so I missed the hand-stamped days. 😂
