Merry Christmas Wishes Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a quick post for you that showcases one of the cards that we did at my Holiday Catalog Launch party. Head over to page 24 of the catalog and hop in Santa’s Sleigh to follow along on the journey.

The card was cased from a fellow demonstrator … I fell in love with the simplicity yet beauty of the card.

We begin with the  Pretty Paisleys Textured Embossing Folder on page 47, and will emboss it on Very Vanilla cardstock. I love the way the embossed image frames our entire card.

Our next step was to stamp the tree image inside the oval in Always Artichoke. I also used Always Artichoke to mat the embossed piece for a little extra pop of color.

You will need to stamp the deer in Soft Suede onto Soft Suede cardstock … Do same with the bow and gift package (Real Red ink onto Real Red cardstock) Then you will cut them out with the framelits included in your bundle.

I used the new Burlap Ribbon from the annual catalog, and pulled a string out of it to use as my bow on the present. The gift was mounted with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

The greeting was stamped on a scrap piece of vanilla cardstock and I simply trimmed the edges by hand. You could also use the Triple Banner punch to make your banner.

We added a some holiday cheer to the inside of our card and a bit of our tree. The tree was also stamped on the envelopes so we had a nice coordinating card to mail.

You could purchase the stamp set and framelits separately but it’s much better to save 10% by bundling! Besides, you are going to want the sleigh … I’ll be sure to share samples in the upcoming holiday season.

Hope you enjoyed our card as much as the group at the Holiday Catalog Launch party liked it.

I thank you for spending a bit of your Saturday with me.

Enjoy your weekend, and I’ll be back tomorrow with a little surprise for my Simply Sunday series.
