Stampin’ Up! I’ll Be Home CAS Holiday Card

I used the Stampin’ Up! I’ll Be Home stamp set to create a clean and simple Christmas card to share with you today.

My card design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #360.

I started by inking the house image from the I’ll Be Home stamp set in Soft Suede ink.  I stamped the image on scrap paper and then stamped it over a Thick Very Vanilla card base.  Then I embossed the card front with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.

I stamped the sentiment from the I’ll Be Home stamp set in Merry Merlot ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock and then cut it out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits die.  I inked the two pine bough images from the Mistletoe Season photopolymer stamp set in Tranquil Tide ink, stamped them on scrap paper and then stamped them on the die cut sentiment.  I inked the holly berry image from the Mistletoe Season stamp set in Merry Merlot ink, stamped it on scrap paper and then stamped it on the die cut sentiment.

I cut a panel of Merry Merlot card stock with a Layering Ovals Framelits die and adhered it to the back of the die cut sentiment with SNAIL.  I punched two panels of Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper with the Sprig Punch and adhered the punches to the back of the sentiment die cut with Glue Dots.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals to finish it.

I stamped the sentiment and holly berries from the Mistletoe Season stamp set in Merry Merlot ink and the pine boughs in Tranquil Tide ink on a Very Vanilla card stock panel.  I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Merry Merlot card stock with SNAIL to finish the inside of the card.

  1. Amy, I LOVE this card! I avoided this stamp set because the thought of coloring it was just too much. But this is beautiful with the embossed vanilla. Thanks for sharing.

  2. You make using every stamp set look easy! I would have no idea what to do with that big house but it looks perfect on your embossed bkgrd in the muted tones. Very pretty. TFS.
