While it doesn’t take a lot of supplies to make cards, more supplies do give you more options for adding a little extra “wow” factor to your handmade cards.

You can make a basic Christmas card with just one stamp, one ink pad and paper…

If you have a punch, you could cut out the “Merry Christmas” sentiment and then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it up just a bit.

If you have dies and embossing folders, you can emboss your card front to add some texture and stitching to your greeting shape…

You’ll notice I also moved the placement of the poinsettia patterned paper for all of the cards above to give each card a little different look.

Finally, here’s one more card that you could make with dies and an embossing folder…

Popping up your greeting with Dimensionals is quick, inexpensive, and adds a lot!
