Happy Friday! Hope you are having a great start to your weekend. Today I’m sharing a few Christmas cards that I made using a variety of stamps from Waffle Flower Crafts. Here is what I came up with:
The idea for this card started with my desire to create a single layer Christmas card–the easiest card to send through the mail to my friends. Then I created a clean and simple Christmas tree card by stamping all the small images from Holiday Labels-Merry Stamp Set, A Homemade Christmas Stamp Set, Surface-Tag Stamp Set, and Planner Add-on: Weather.
Small images can be great to be used to fill in the shape like a Christmas tree. Depending on the occasion, you can create a heart, star, and etc. The possibilities are endless. So you need to observe what small images you have in your stamp sets.
This is my second card using a same theme but different sentiment. As I did for my first card. I started by drawing a tree using a pencil and ruler before stamping. Then I used my brand new pigment ink pads from Mama Elephant to stamp the images to shape the tree. Do you like the color scheme that I chose? I couldn’t love it enough! 🙂
The small sentiment from A Homemade Christmas Stamp Set fitted perfectly as my Christmas tree stand. By the way, I used Naturals White cardstock from Stamping’ UP for my both cards as card base.
I made another one using a different card base which is a kraft cardstock from Papertrey Ink. I love the rustic feeling from the paper.
I had so much fun creating these one layer cards using all the tiny stamps that I rarely use. Then I ended up making a set of Christmas cards. Hope you love my cards and get some inspiration as well.
FYI, these are the images of the stamp sets that I used to create my Christmas cards: Holiday Labels-Merry, A Homemade Christmas, Surface-Tag, Planner Add-on: Weather.

What a brilliant idea!!! I have used circles but never thought of Christmas trees, the list of shapes is endless. Will have to sort out my small stamps.
Thank you so much for sharing.
I love this May! Love your creativity!
Your cards are awesome. OLCs are so hard for me, I always end up adding a layer… but your cards are beautiful – so simple, but so beautiful! Thanks for sharing this idea,
I absolutely love all 4 colour schemes and imagery. Love how that pigment ink sits on the kraft!
What fantastic stamping! Love how perfectly it all fits into the tree shape and great mix of colors, I love those kraft ones!
