A Triple Play for the Christmas Card Stash! MM284, 52CCT, PP387

Hello Everyone!

So a funny thing happened while making Today’s Card!

I knew I had a couple of Christmas Card Challenges to do…so

I thought I would combine them…unbeknownst to me…I also had

a third Challenge on the brain…I thought is was one of the Christmas

Card Challenges…so I go to making the Card…then when I was pulling

the pages for the Challenges…I realized that the third challenge was incorporated

into the Christmas Card Challenges in total error!

I knew one challenge was ‘music’

the other challenge was ‘red & white’

It was the ’embossing’ challenge that was incorporated in error!

I thought the ‘music’ and ‘red and white’ were the challenges…I thought I’d emboss

white onto red for that challenge…then, I just started stamping in VersaMark and

White Stampin’ Emboss Powder over all…little did I realize at that time…I was

using 3 Challenges instead of 2 Challenges!

The following are the three challenges!!!


52 Christmas Card Throwdown-Embossing!

52CCT-Embossing-March technique

Merry Monday 284-Use Red and White!


The Paper Players-Musical!



Here is my Card!!!


Musical, Embossed, in Red & White!


Here is the inside of my Card!


I stamped and used Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder

over the Real Red Ink! Used all three inside too!

(‘melody that plays’ is musical reference!)


And of course, the stamped to match envelope!


Ready for the Christmas Card Stash!!!


Stock and Measures:


Real Red-card base 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ scored @ 4 1/4″ folded in half on the score

Whisper White-inside panel 4″ X 5 1/4″

Stamp Sets:

Sheet Music-background stamp

Musical Season-drummer boy, inside sentiment, envelope instrument

Christmas Pines-greeting

Classic Stampin’ Ink Pad:

Real Red-inside sentiment, instrument on envelope


VersaMark Watermark Stamp Pad-all pre stamping for heat embossing on card front

Stampin’ Emboss Powder, White-all heat embossing on the front

Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Clear-for use over stamped inside sentiment


Heat Tool-for all heat embossing front and inside


Here is my Card again!


I am happy to get a couple of more Cards into the Christmas Card Stash!

I have mentioned before, I make 2 Cards at a time, when I make my Cards!

Very seldom I make one Card…you have to cut the Cardstock in half…

…may as well make 2 cards!

Do you make 2 Cards at once or do you just make one Card at a time?

Let me know…I’m just curious!

Thanks for stopping by and see you next Post…Until then, Blessings to you ALL!

  1. Cute, CUTE card and yay to you for being able to do 3 challenges together…gotta love when that happens!! Thanks for sharing with us at Merry Monday!! :0)

  2. I’m impressed with 1 card for 3 challenges! I can never seem to get it together enough to do that. Love the red & white and the layout with the music off the front. The little drummer boy is a perfect complement! Thanks for sharing over at The Paper Players this week!

  3. Very pretty! What a cool layout and I love that it’s really actually very simple, but really stands out with the white on red!! Great job playing with our musical challenge this week at the Paper Players!

    1. Thanks Leanne…funny thing is the angled music came as a mistake…I dropped the stamp…I went with it! Originally I had stamped and embossed the whole front with music and then the drummer boy and greeting over the music…couldn’t read the greeting…so in try #2 I was going to stamp only 3/4 of the front of the card…I dropped the stamp on an angle and liked it! The rest fell into place! Sometimes it all just falls into place!

  4. This is beautiful, I love the simplicity and the clarity of the white on red. Thanks for joining in at 52CCT even though it was unintentional!

  5. elle est magnifique cette carte, joli design et magnifique scène en rouge et blanc, merci de jouer avec nous chez 52CCT, biz

  6. This is one of those cards where you look at it and think okay, that’s pretty. But the more you look at it and the closer you look, the more stunning it becomes. This is seriously an awesome card! Thank you for joining us at 52 CCT.

Let me know what you think!
