A Merry Christmas To You – October Christmas Card

Hi friends,

I almost missed it – but I managed to get my Christmas card for October designed and made! 🎄

You can find the other cards I’ve created this year in these posts… January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, and September.

I used the Making Spirits Bright and Christmas Express stamp sets from Unity Stamp Company for this month’s card. I love the vintage look mailbox! We had one on the corner across the street from the house I grew up in (although it was blue 😉). I used to love mailing things for my mom when I was little. 🙂

I stamped the mailbox image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white card stock and colored it with Copic markers. I used the Wonky Stitched Rectangle Dies from My Favorite Things to die cut around the image. I inked the edges with blue ink using a Blender Brush from Taylored Expressions.

I randomly stamped 3 of the postmark images from the Christmas Express stamp set on white card stock. I added blue ink with a Blender Brush and attached the piece to a white card. I attached the mailbox image to the card with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment with black ink on white card stock, punched it with a label punch (my punch is discontinued, but here is a set of similar dies), and applied blue ink. I attached it to the corner of the mailbox image.

I love how these 2 stamp sets go perfectly together! They make such a cute Christmas card!🎄
