Clean and Simple Christmas Wishes

Be Of Good Cheer (merry men and women, lol) is a stunning, classic Holiday Designer Series Paper. Here with a Cherry Cobbler "face" on Naturals White cardstock an elegant but clean Holiday card. (It has a sprinkles look, kind of like candy.)

With the stripes on the Be Of Good Cheer DSP looking similar to candy cane stripes, I couldn't resist this shadow effect. The Holiday Collection is great as it coordinates with the Scentsational Season stamp set. I like, too, how it can be used solo.

I simply framed the striped DSP with Stampin Dimensional Adhesive and then the Stampin Dimensional on the outside corners. I layered the floating front on the Naturals White card.

I used the cut out candy cane on the back (not to waste such a cute lil cut out). I then couldn't resist and I did stamp the Chock Full Of Cheer candy cane on the inside of the card.

The polka dot sheet is from Be Of Good Cheer as well. I cut clean strips at 1-1/2" and then I wanted the Chock-Gull of Cheer stamp set's Merry Christmas sentiment. I stamped that with Cherry Cobbler ink. SNAIL adhesive creates a great, elegant and clean looking card.

Minimal style isn't my style but I LOVE this look! What do you think?? Thank you for looking, sharing and leaving a comment!

What Others are SAYING about Getting Crafty with Jamie

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
