Although I do not want the weather to change, I am having so much fun creating Christmas cards with my new Stampin’ Up! products!
When you’re ready to start planning and creating your Christmas cards, give me a call at 1.866.472.8207 or e-mail me for your card consultation. Or, get your friends or co-workers together for a fun, one hour or less Christmas Card Express class.
Today’s card’s are stamp free. I used only punches, paper and acessories to create these easy cards.
This first card uses Soft Suede, Kraft and Real Red cardstocks with Christmas Cocoa designer series paper (116770) from the Holiday Mini. After punching with the Ornament punch (116794) and Real Red cardstock, I layered it onto crimped Christmas Cocoa paper using dimensionals for added height.
A different pattern of Christmas Cocoa paper was used as a horizontal border. Sleigh Bells ribbon (116795) and Real Red brads (106957 – Bold Brights) were used to embellish the card and add more colour.
This card follows the same layout but uses Certainly Celery in place of the Real Red. I also used Soft Suede, Kraft and Christmas Cocoa paper on this second card with Certainly Celery 5/8" grosgrain ribbon (109050) and Fresh Favourites I buttons (107421).
A Jumbo Snowflake punch (116628) was layered onto Very Vanilla cardstock with Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430). I like the versatility of this card – it can be used all winter and would be a great bithday or thank you card as well as Christmas.
Don’t think it, ink it!
