Hello, crafters, this is Yana Smakula for Simon Says Stamp! Welcome back for another Yippee
For Yana

Today I am creating a Christmas card with the Simons Says Stamp Joyful stamp set. This card
has a very bold, modern, and sort of graphic look to it. I love to make cards like this and it has
been a while since I made one.

I first heat embossed the Joyful sentiment in Antique Gold embossing powder on a panel of
Schoolhouse Red cardstock. I did the embossing twice to have a thicker layer of powder. Next, I
stamped the same image in watermark ink filling the background in, I love the tone-on-tone look.

You can use any image for this type of card design. Stamp & heat emboss the image in the
center and fill the rest of the space by stamping the same image in watermark ink.

I created a card base from the same Schoolhouse Red cardstock and adhered my main panel
onto it. You can do your stamping directly on the card base, but cardstock often warps from heat
embossing and I didn’t want to have any warping on my panel.

Lastly, I added a foiled “Merry Christmas” sentiment created using a BetterPress plate and
Glimmer Hot Foil System. Have fun stamping!
