From White Cardstock to WOW!

Hi friends! It’s nice to go back to basics and what’s more basic than white cardstock. It’s a staple in every card-makers repertoire. Plus it’s not showy. If you are going to spend the time on fancy coloring of a stamped image you don’t want it to be upstaged by pattern paper, am I right?

Today we will use white card stock, some embossing folders and chalk to make these pretty Christmas cards. I did use scraps of red and green cardstock too but you could easily keep it all white and chalk it as well. For more info watch the video!

Hey, if you are not ready to get your Christmas craft on I totally understand, use these techniques on a Halloween card or whatever you like. You do you. Happy crafting!

  1. Hi Lindsay,
    Great ideas and so cute!
    Question: Have you ever made a DIY stamp positioner tool?
    Thanks for sharing your many talents.
    Take care.


    • I made one like a stampamajig from legos (a corner plus a clear sheet) and my friend Jody made me a hinged one from a thin clear hubless DVD jewel case. I don’t use either of them really, occasionally m stampamajig for lining up stuff perfectly.


  2. They are very cute.


  3. I love the quilt background with the piggie in a blanket so cozy and fun !
