The 12 Days of a Clean and Simple Christmas – Stamp Simply Style – Day Nine

Welcome! It’s hard to believe it’s Day 9already of our clean and simple Christmas projects. Time sure flies when you’re having fun! And fun is surely what I had making this trio of cards for today:

Very CAS and very white — refreshing!

These cards are a standard 4.25 x 5.5″, tent fold.

The paper used is Father Christmas 6×6 by Bo Bunny.

All Bo Bunny coordinates can be seen here.

These cards are fun to make. I like the importance placed upon the simple focalpanel with the wide matting. I could sit and put together these little panels for hours — kind of mindless work with pretty paper — right up my alley — LOL!!! And to have a pile of these little panels in front on you, ready to apply to cards — ooohhh, good feeling!!!

To create the focal panel, cut a cardstockpiece 3.25 x 4.5″ to decorate. I used 2 coordinating prints and covered the seam with 1″ Grograin with Satin Edge in white, using Scor Tape.

TheBelievesentiment is a wood mount stamp by Rubber Soul/Wordsworth. It is cut with a Charm Die made by Spellbinders for JustRite. This die set coordinates with many JustRite Cling Stamps, but I used it alone today — fun die set.

There is a single Rhinestone atop the ornamentcharm in Lippy Red. I almost put 1/4″ Silk bows on the ornaments in burgundy. They looked adorable, but in keeping with the theme of CAS, quick and easy, I opted to go for the singlerhinestone instead! The ornaments are popped up with 3D Foam Squares.

And there you have it — a CAS, quick and easy Christmas card trio.

All items used are available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, as linked above.

On a personal note, my pile of used SU sets is getting pretty small, but there are still some left — at 50% off the original used price.


Once again I want to sincerely say THANK YOU for stopping in each day during our 12 Days of a Clean and Simple Christmas. It’s been so much fun creating the projects and having you come each day to take a peek– MANY thanks!

I’ll be back tomorrow. Have a wonderful today!

  12. Hi Sharon~

    These are great! At first I thought you took the time to put brads into the ornament shapes. I love that they are rhinestones. These are beautiful yet simple cards! They are now on my list of cards to make!

    Thank you so much!
