Although I made the commitment to take the leap this year to a Stampin’ Up! My Digital Studio holiday photocard (check out my MDS card here), I’m still sending out handcrafted cards to 20 or so family and friends who anticipate receiving them each year. That’s the purpose of today’s simple card, along with taking up the challenge to use the classic holiday colors below for the new Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge (PPA148).
DON’T MISS the rest of the PPA Design Team’s projects using these colors and give it a “go” yourself!
STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:
- Quick holiday WOW! The Stampin’ Up! Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and Holiday Ornaments Framelits helped me pop out this sophisticated ornament in a flash. Save 15% when you buy them together. Ornament Keepsakes Wood-Mount Bundle (129949) OR Ornament Keepsakes Clear-Mount Bundle (129950).
- A touch of embossing (I love using the Delicate Designs Embossing Folder on Very Vanilla Card Stock) adds a pretty finish at the bottom of the card.
- The Crumb Cake envelope flap was covered with a pattern from Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack and snipped to coordinated perfection with Paper Snips.
The STAMPIN’ UP! HOLIDAY CATALOG CARRYOVER LIST is now available. Discover which products will still be available after the catalog expires.
