Christmastime Simplicity in Gold …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

If your overwhelmed with all that’s going on in life, but love to make your own Christmas cards, I have some great suggestions for you.  Over the next few days, I will be sharing different quick -n- easy ideas so you can hand craft Christmas cards without any stress.

Todays card is easy to make if you have an die cutting / embossing machine … and I believe most of my stampin’ friends do.  We will be using the Seasonal Wreath 3D embossing folder! To make this super simple … we are using the Gold Foil Edged Cards and Envelopes.  There are 20 Whisper White card and envelopes trimmed with gold foil.  These are your regular A2 sized cards so no extra postage will be required!

I slid the pre-scored card into the folder and centered the wreath and then ran it through my machine.  It just fits inside the gold foil edges but looks so elegant!  The next thing we need to do is add a greeting … now, you could stamp a greeting in the center and heat emboss it in gold, but as you can see … I used a die cut greeting.  My greeting comes from the Jolly Seasons set of dies which comes from the Holly Jolly Christmas Bundle in the Night Before Christmas Product suite.

If you the “Merry Christmas” dies from last years catalog, you could use those for your greeting, or you could get the “Word Wishes” dies found on page 197 of the annual catalog.  This set of dies includes 12 dies and highlights 9 holidays!

You could jazz this up by sponging a little gold on the embossed wreath, or color it!  I am sharing quick -n- easy and sometimes, as I’ve said before, less can be more. Enjoy the beautiful simplicity of the card and get your holiday cards done this year.  I will be back with more simply creative ideas for you.

Thank you for joining me today, see you tomorrow!

Have a beautiful day ~
