Ideas for Christmas Cards!
The New Christmas Catalogue from Stampin' Up! has some really lovely Stamp Sets and Dies to help you make some great Christmas Cards! I have chosen 2 of the Stamp Sets to feature this month - 'Ponsettia Petals' and 'Tree Angle'.
If you would like to view a copy of the Christmas Catalogue, just email me at email@example.com and I will send you a PDF to look at. All the items in the catalogue are available on my website. Just click on 'Shop Now' above. Below are two separate cards I have made with the 'Ponsettia Petals' bundle using the 'Heartwarming Hugs' Designer Paper (page 9 of catalogue), Holly leaves cut out with dies in the set using 'Mossy Meadow' Cardstock, Forever Gold Speciality Designer Series Paper for the accessories around the flower, Vellum cardstock for the Ponsettia leaves and 'Beaded Pearls' (page 15 of catalogue).
Here is the Stamp Sets and Dies
And here is the card I made with the 'Tree Angle' Stamps. I stamped the patterns on the trees using the Stamps in the set and 'Poppy Parade' Red Ink and 'Just Jade' green Ink.
I cut the trees out by hand using the 'Paper Snips' scissors available on Page 159 of the current Annual Catalogue.
Here are the product codes for the items above in case you would like to order some from me.
