The Stylish Christmas stamp set is a DistINKtive set.  DistINKtive stamps have a built in texture that gives a lot of depth and dimension without needing 2 or 3 step stamping 🙂  You can learn more about Stampin’ Up!’s DistINKtive stamps at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QF5VHPlkScQ

A couple other variations using these products:

This card is very similar except a different paper pattern at the bottom of the card (4″ x 2-1/4″).  The ribbon on all these cards are added in two pieces, the bow is tied separately and added with a Glue Dot.  Rhinestones add a little holiday sparkle and the greeting is popped up with Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Stylish Christmas

This card is a “stepped up” version with additional layers and fussy cutting the poinsettia and leaves.  The Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper is 2-3/4″ x 5-1/2″.  The poinsettia is stamped in Real Red ink on Whisper White cardstock that is die-cut with the Oval Framelit and layered to Early Espresso cardstock die-cut with the Scallop Oval framelit a smidge larger.  A 2nd poinsettia and leaves (Old Olive) are stamped on scrap Whisper White cardstock and trimmed closely (just a bit of white border) with Paper Snips and layered on top of the first poinsettia.  The edges are slightly curled with the Bone Folder.  Dimensionals under the greeting and the oval element.

I hope you enjoyed today’s projects using the Stylish Christmas stamp set and are inspired to start crafting your holiday cards for family and friends 🙂
