Carols of Christmas Card with a Melon Mambo Twist

Stampin Up Carols of Christmas Card Idea - Mary Fish StampinUp

Why not Melon Mambo for today’s Carols of Christmas card?  I love the crisp and modern feel of Melon Mambo with Basic Black and Whisper White – even for the holidays.  However, if you prefer something more traditional, consider Real Red, Garden Green or any of the metallic foils (gold, silver, copper) in place of Melon Mambo!

I love hearing from you!  Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.


  • AVAILABLE AUG. 1.  The Carols of Christmas product bundle used on today’s card is being offered as an early release from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog starting Aug. 1.  The holiday catalog begins Sept. 1.  You’ll also be able to purchase the stamp set and dies individually.  However, you’ll save 10% when you purchase them together!

  • The 10% off bundle includes the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set (available in wood or clear-mount) and Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies.  
  • Using the three sided border die, I cropped each end of a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Basic Black card stock.  I love how the Melon Mambo peeks from behind to accentuate the border.

  • The Whisper White trees were also cropped using the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies.  They are popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals and accented with a single Melon Mambo dot (Brights Enamel Shapes) and Basic Black Baker’s Twine.
