I am on Day 8 of the “12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge” with my stamping buddy Christy. Today’s card is a Stampin’ Up!® Frosted Gingerbread #SimpleStamping Christmas Card. Each day of this challenge my blog will focus on a new holiday card. The challenge goes until December 10, 2021. I plan to showcase a different stamp set with each card. This will allow you plenty of time to see the great products that are available in the 2021 Stampin’ Up! July to December Mini Catalog, and to order in time to make your own Christmas cards! You can order HERE when you have your list ready!
Many of the products in the Stampin’ Up! July-December Mini Catalog will be retiring at the end of December. If you really want something, order now because products are “while supplies last”. Get more information on the “Last Chance” products HERE
This is a perfect card for the beginner stamper to try out. I use only one stamp set, one ink and one type of paper to create this Frosted Gingerbread #SimpleStamping Christmas card.
Frosted Gingerbread #SimpleStamping Christmas Card
- Basic White Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches.
- Basic White CS: 4 x 5 1/2 inches
The first step is to use Real Red Ink to stamp the sentiment “Wishing You A Merry Christmas” on the inside panel of the Basic White CS card base. Tip: Be sure to use either the Stampin’ Pierce Mat or your catalog to stamp on. Photopolymer stamps work best with a softer surface under the card stock.
For the next step you will need either a Clear Block I or your stamp case. I will be using my stamp case. First remove the paper insert from the stamp case. Lay the border stamp on the top of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS to be sure it is straight. Pick the stamp up with the front of the stamp case.
Close the stamp case. Apply Real Red Ink and stamp along the upper border of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS.
Turn the Basic White CS so the stamped border is on the bottom. Ink the border stamp again and stamp along the top edge.
Stamp the sentiment “Sending You Peppermint Kisses” on the lower right-hand side. Now stamp the trio of peppermints to the left and slightly above the sentiment.
Assembling the Card
To finish the card, adhere the stamped panel to the front of the Basic White CS card base.
And Voila! That is all there is to this Frosted Gingerbread #SimpleStamping Christmas card!

Thank you for stopping by for Day 8 of the 12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge. Later today there will be a non-Christmas blog coming out. I am participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights Gallery. But I will be back tomorrow with another Christmas card!
