Step It Up! with Carols of Christmas

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team will be showing you ways to Step It Up!  This is a fun way to show your customers more options and embellishments!

I decided to start with a card I made last month using Carols of Christmas.

I liked this card mainly because of the star cutouts you get from the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies.  These come as a bundle with the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set.

Here you can see how I stepped it up!

Remember Highlights for Kids?  I used to love those magazines when I was little!  They always had a page where you were supposed to find the differences in the 2 pictures.

So here’s your challenge:  Find the 5 (yes, five!) ways I’ve STEPPED IT UP!  I’ll send you a Christmas Card in the mail as your prize!  Place your guess in the comments section below.

Thanks for stopping by today & be sure & go to the SSINK BLOG PAGE to see their ideas!

  1. Happy belated Thanksgiving! I love the color combo on this card. The 5 ways you amped this card up are made it a gate fold, added bling to the corners, made the middle part of the sentiment a different color, matted the front panels and added a gold glitter paper deer. All of these additions are subtle changes but pack a big punch.

    • Oh…you’re so “on it”, Annette! I just realized… everyone else can just copy you! Ha! Cards for EVERYONE!!

      I’ll get you a card in the mail (think I have your address). Congratulations!

  2. Added bling in the stars, a raindeer, cut card with middle opening, made the on a different color, added the edging on the inside of the card. Very nice!

  3. Rhinestones in the star cutouts
    Made the single card into a gate-fold card (fun-fold)
    Stamped the sentiment on a separate card to attach to one side of the fun-fold instead of directly on the card
    Put a deer in the right lower corner of the card
    Put a frame design inside the fun-fold card.
