Pick Your Christmas to Remember – Traditional, Elegant or Modern
When I purchased the Christmas to Remember Bundle, I was worried that all of my cards would look the same. The bundle includes the Christmas Pines dies and the Christmas to Remember stamp set with nine greetings of all sizes. Assembling the card is pretty straight forward, layer the pines and and add the pine cones. And then complete the card with your choice of greeting. But that doesn’t leave a lot of room to create unique cards.
I realized that the variety from this stamp set needs to come from the colors and greetings that I picked. I decided to go for three different looks today – traditional, elegant and modern. Please leave a comment and let me know which card is your favourite.
And if you love this bundle as much as I do, it can be your free pick with the purchase of a starter kit. The kit includes $165 in your choice of products plus free shipping and GST included. And until September 30th, you can choose from twelve different bundle options free.
This is my traditional version – red and green. I paired Cherry Cobbler ink for the greeting with Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen card stock for the pines. The pine cones are Crumb Cake and Soft Suede.
I recommend that you use the adhesive sheets with these dies as assembling the card is so much easier. Trust me.
This is my elegant version. I kept it simple with white and gold. And an elegant card calls for embossing so I used white embossing powder on the brushed metallic paper.
On the left is the Gold Foil and on the right is the gold paper from the Brushed Metallic pack.
The brushed metallic paper was a better match for the Be Dazzling 6″ x 6″ Specialty Paper. The Be Dazzling paper is absolutely stunning and only available until September 30th or while supplies last. And the best thing about this paper is that it is free with a $60 order during Sale-a-bration.
The trend towards modern Christmas trees continues this year. I wanted to create a card to reflect a white tree with bright ornaments.
For this card, I partnered Melon Mambo with Polished Pink, Bermuda Bay with Coastal Cabana and Gorgeous Grape with Highland Heather. I used the same white embossing power for three tiny “merry” greeting to match the pine cones.
I like the three distinct looks created with this bundle and can picture cutting up the pines into smaller pieces for additional creative options. Can you believe it is less than four months to Christmas?
