Swirly Bird Christmas Ornament Handmade Card

This is a super quick,  easy to create Christmas card featuring two stamp sets – Swirly Bird and Better Together.   Is there such a thing as a ‘no fail card’ – I think this handmade card might be it.  This is one of the favourites from my Christmas in July Stamp a Stack Creative Card Class.

To make it easier for you, I have included a tutorial to help you.  The photo has not captured the card background and envelope flap, both of which were randomly stamped in Smoky Slate using the small swirly pattern from the Swirly Bird stamp set.

The details for the Swirly Bird Christmas card:


Cardbase: 8-1/4” x 5-1/2” Night of Navy C/S; Soft Sky layer: 3-7/8” x 5-1/4”; Whisper White Layer: 3-3/4” x 5-1/8”; Card Insert:  3-7/8” x 5-1/4” Whisper White C/S


Soft Sky, Smoky Slate, Night of Navy


  1. Stamp the solid Swirly Bird stamp three times in Soft Sky on the Whisper White Layer. Over stamp with the swirly design in Night of Navy. Draw a vertical line from the top to each of the ornaments.
  2. Stamp the ‘Merry Christmas’ sentiment in Night of Navy in the bottom right hand corner.
  3. Stamp smaller swirly pattern in Smoky Slate randomly across the background. Similarly, randomly stamp the card insert and the envelope flap.
  4. Tie three Night of Navy bows and attach to each ornament using a ‘rolled’ glue dot.
  5. Stamp sentiment ‘ONE OF THE BEST PARTS OF THE SEASON IS KEEPING IN TOUCH WITH YOU’ from the Better Together stamp set on the inside the card. Decorate the card insert with randomly stamped small swirls in Smoky Slate.
  6. Assemble the card.
