Good morning! It’s Tuesday and I’m betting you’re eyeballing the kitchen with thoughts of getting ready for T-day! We got all the grocery shopping done yesterday. I…hope! I’d just as soon NOT have to go again before the day – so…fingers crossed that my list was complete!! Hoping the same for y’all – so you can enjoy the cooking and prepping!
My card today is one that is tres-parfait (that’s French, I’m pretty sure!) for making Christmas cards – especially when you need a bunch! PLEASE do NOT go to the grocery store and buy a box of printed, mass-produced Christmas cards, okay? Pull out the Evergreen Elegance stamp set, a little cardstock and ink and…the stupendous Stamparatus and….get stamping! Take a look-see:
So – the workhorse for this card is the Stamparatus. With both Acrylic Plates in place – you can adhere the sentiments – front AND back, and the pine bough image – all at the same time. PARFAIT for making multiples! 🙂
Place a card front-sized piece of Basic White cardstock into the Stamparatus. Position the Evergreen Elegance pine bough stamp at the bottom of the panel, pick it up with the right-side plate, ink it with Evening Evergreen ink and stamp the bottom of the panel.
Next, position the front sentiment stamp on the panel and pick it up with the second (top) plate. Ink it in Cherry Cobbler and stamp the panel.
Finally, turn the panel 180 degrees and stamp the other end with the pine bough in Evening Evergreen.
Score a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Basic White Thick cardstock at 5 1/2″ and place it into the Stamparatus with the “inside” panel at the top. Position the second Evergreen Elegance sentiment onto the cardstock – UPSIDE DOWN! Then flip the “top” Acrylic plate over and pick up the sentiment image.
Ink the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler and stamp it on the inside of the cardbase.
Then…time to repeat the process as many times as you need cards!
Fold and burnish the card base and pop the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Finish it off with an Evening Evergreen gem from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels – and the card is done!
Reposition the pine bough image on the Stamparatus plate and stamp the front of a Basic White Medium Envelope with the Evergreen Elegance pine bough in Evening Evergreen.
Reposition the pine bough stamp again and then stamp the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Quick – easy – elegant! Need to make a bunch? Want an efficient way to set up your assembly line? Here you go:
- Cut as many 4 1/4″ x 11″ Basic White Thick Cardstock card bases as you need. Get two bases from each 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet.
- Cut as many 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ pieces of Basic White cardstock card fronts as you need. Get four card fronts from each 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet.
- Score – but do not fold – all the card bases at 5 1/2″.
- Place a card front in the corner of the Stamparatus.
- Place the Evergreen Elegance pine bough stamp onto the card front where you want it.
- Pick up the stamp with the right-side Acrylic Plate.
- Place the sentiment onto the card front where you want it.
- Pick up the stamp with the top Acrylic Plate.
- Ink and stamp the pine bough in Evening Evergreen.
- Turn the card front 180 Degrees.
- Ink and stamp the pine bough in Evening Evergreen.
- Ink and stamp the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler.
- Replace the panel with another card front and repeat the process until all card fronts are stamped.
- Place a card base in the Stamparatus – with the INSIDE panel at the top, in the corner.
- Positionl the second (inside) sentiment in the middle of the inside panel.
- Flip the top Acrylic Plate over and pick up the stamp.
- Ink the stamp in Cherry Cobbler and stamp the inside of the card base.
- Repeat until all card bases are stamped.
- Place a Basic White Medium Envelope in the corner of the Stamparatus.
- Place the cleaned pine bough stamp on the envelope front and pick it up with the right-side plate.
- Stamp all the envelopes in Evening Evergreen.
- Repeat steps 19-21 for the envelope flap until all envelopes are stamped front and back.
- Fold and burnish all the card bases.
- Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere a card front to all the card bases.
- Adhere a 2021-2023 In Color Jewel to each card front.
Pat yourself on the back, then sign and mail all those beauties! Prepare for the praise and accolades that will be coming your way! 🙂
This card is super quick and easy, thanks to the beautiful Evergreen Elegance stamp set from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog and the amaze-balls Stamparatus!

No Finn today – sorry!
Thought I’d show you my silly marigolds.
Apparently they haven’t gotten the memo yet to let them know it’s winter. Everything ELSE “gets it”.
