I’m not only a papercraft, but a lover of many other crafts!!  One of my all time favourites is cross stitch so I was excited to see the Cross Stitch Christmas stamp set.

Here the latest cross stitch that I finished earlier this year.


Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the 3 trees in Shaded Spruce, Granny Apple Green and Real Red.  It does take a little bit of practice to get the stamps lined up nicely.   I cut it out with an Oval Stitched Shape framelits and then a crumb cake oval.

I embossed the Granny Apple Green with the Quilt Top embossing folder.  Don’t you just love this folder!


I stamped the sentiment in Shaded Spruce and punched it out with the Classic Label punch.  I added a piece of Polka Dot ribbon and Real Red Solid Ribbon.

I just love Christmas!!!  I can’t wait to get into making Christmas cards!

Head on over to visit Lou and check out her gorgeous project!

  1. I love this card Bec and your inspiration. Cross stitch reminds me of lovely times with my Nana learning and laughing. Maybe I need this stamp set too!

  2. Gorgeous card Rebecca. I too started my crafting journey with Cross Stitch way back, many moons ago, so this set appeals to me too. Love your card and the layering of the different colours to make that ‘cross stitch’ look. The embossing folder teams up perfectly with this set. And I just have to say that your cross stitch is amazing! Making me want to get back into it! Thanks for sharing! Rochelle xo

  3. I love your cross-stitch, I haven’t done one for years. The card is great too, that background embossing folder coordinates so well with this set.
