I’ve been making Christmas cards since July, so it’s a funny thing to sit down and design a Christmas card to send to friends and family. While many of my customers and friends received some of the cards I’ve designed over the past six months, more received my 2018 Christmas card. I’m sharing that card with you today.
Here’s a look a the card I made:
The card front is mostly layers of cardstock, but there are two stamp sets on the front. The Mossy Meadow emblem on the Whisper White panel gives this card a regal feel. It’s stamped on a 2-1/2″ x 3-3/4″ panel of Whisper White cardstock with the Flourish Filigree stamp set. If you haven’t picked up this set, you can still get it retires on January 2. Here’s a look at this versatile stamp set:
The “JOY” sentiment is from another FF stamp set in Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Occasions Catalog. While the base is Flourish Filigree, the sentiment is Feathers & Frost. Flourish Filigree and Feathers & Frost – what festive, friendly, fellows! Here’s a look at the Feathers & Frost stamp set (also retiring on January 2):
As you can see from the closeup, I added a single Red Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the “O” in Joy to pull a little red into the circle on the front. These rhinestones, from the 2018 Annual Catalog, are on discount as part of the Year-End Closeout. While you are purchasing (FINALLY) your FF stamps, be sure to pick up some of these great rhinestones! Just think about how wonderful it will be to have these for Valentine’s Day! You’re welcome!
I combined two stamp sets for the inside of my card – one from the Flourish Filigree stamp set and one from Snowflake Sentiments. Here’s a look at the inside of my card:
I love many red-and-green combinations for Christmas, and this combination of Crumb Cake, Mossy Meadow and Real Red is one of my favorites. I love how bright Real Red appears against the richness of Mossy Meadow. If you like this combination as much as I do, please save this:
Stamp Sets: Flourish Filigree, Feathers & Frost Papers: Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake, Real Red, Whisper White Inks: Mossy Meadow, Real Red, Basic Black Accessories: Red Rhinestones, 1-1/4″ Circle punch, Layering Circles Framelits Dies, Stampin’ Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today!
