Get Extra Mileage from Your Stamps

We don’t always have the time or the money to buy new stamps for making Christmas cards. Today’s card making tip is on how to get extra mileage from a stamp.

How can you get extra mileage from your stamps?

You don’t have to buy a new stamp get a new look. First, think about the materials you use to make a card. Second, take a look at your craft stash. There are various elements one could modify to create card design versions: ink, paper, layout and embellishment.


Today’s card craft project focuses on embellishment. I created a 3-D message using foam mounting tape.  To give the card extra interest I used beads. If you don’t have bead, then your alternative could be to apply a thick coat of Aleene’s Paper Glaze. If you dreaming of a white Christmas, then why not at a little glitter for snow.
