It’s time for May’s Christmas card! I’ve managed to design and make at least 4 Christmas cards each month so far this year. Have you joined me in building your Christmas card stash? You can find the other cards I’ve made so far in these posts – January, February, March, and April.

This month I decided to pull out one of my older Christmas stamps because it’s still just so cute! This sweet owl is from the Ho Ho Hoot set by Darcie’s. Sadly, this set is no longer available but you can find some other adorable Darcie’s Christmas stamps here.
I stamped the owl with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white card stock, colored it with Copic markers, and punched it with a circle punch. Then I layered the image to a scalloped circle punched from red card stock. I have a collection of circle and scalloped circle punches that I bought years ago that I use a lot on my cards. If you have a die cutting machine, there are sets of nesting circle dies (like these) and scalloped circle dies (like these) that will take up much less space in your craft room!
I added a piece of patterned paper to a white card and then added the stamped image using foam tape. I stamped the sentiment in the bottom right corner with red ink.
I made this card a top fold card to make it just a little different. Simply cut your card stock to measure 4.25 by 11 inches and fold it in half lengthwise.
You can use any of your favorite images and sentiments to make your own cards using this layout. I encourage you to pull out your older Christmas stamps and show them some love. 🙂
