Peace, Love and Joy with Classic Christmas

I’ve made a trio of simple cards I’m excited to share with you today. These Christmas cards feature the Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, the Playful Alphabet Dies and a simple layout that’s perfect for quick-and-easy cards. Here are my cards:

Peace Love and Joy with Classic Christmas, Stampin Up! Brian KingDo you see the similarity between these three cards? They can be sent individually, but they make a wonderful collection, don’t you think?

Here’s a closer look at each of these three cards:

Peace with Classic Christmas, Stampin Up! Brian King Love with Classic Christmas, Stampin Up! Brian King Joy with Classic Christmas, Stampin Up! Brian KingWhile the sentiments might fight for your attention, the Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper is the star of these cards – the colors and patterns inform each of the designs and allow me to quickly mix-and-match patterns for these fun cards. This pack of papers is only offered for a limited time (they go away on January 4) – even if you don’t use them for THIS YEAR’S Christmas projects, they won’t be around next year, so consider getting them today. ♥

Here’s a look a the colors and patterns in the Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper:

The sentiments on these cards were built with the Playful Alphabet Dies – one of my favorite (and most used) products from Stampin’ Up!’s 2020 Annual Catalog. Here’s a look at these incredible dies:

Playful Alphabet Dies, Stampin Up! 152706 I cropped these letters from the corresponding cardstock and then again with the Foam Adhesive Sheets that give perfectly-shaped dimensional support to each die. I pealed off one side of the sheet, fitted the cardstock-cropped die on top and then poked that all out of the Foam Adhesive Sheet. So easy! Here’s a look at the must-have Foam Adhesive Sheets:

Foam Adhesive Sheets, Stampin Up!, 152815If you studied the three cards, you can see I created the trio with a simple design that incorporates each of the three colors in the Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (DSP) – (1) the base, base layer of DSP and letters used to build the sentiment, (2) The 3″ x 3″ square of DSP and (3) the band across each 3″ x 3″ square. If you like this mix of Sahara Sand, Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce as much as I do, I hope you’ll save this for future reference:Stampin Up!

  1. Beautiful mix of papers! And I love the simple bold sentiments!

  2. These sweet cards are the last three themes of the Advent season…how perfect!

  3. Perfection. Those letters make such a bold statement. Classy mix of patterns!

  4. Love the mix of patterns and colors. Easy to put together for last minute cards. I can see that LOVE one as inspiration for Valentine’s day also.

  5. Great layering and great cards!

  6. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! I’m thinking of making a fold out card, with the 3 card fronts as the 3 panels. Does that make sense? These colors and designs are yummy.

    • I love that idea, Wendie! ♥ I would have just used Crumb Cake with this red and green if it weren’t for the inspiration from the paper to use Sahara Sand. Love that!

  7. What a great mix and match layout. Such fun to play with and fairly easy to mass produce. Great cards as always.

  8. What joy these fun and festive cards bring! I love the colors that are so festive but so soothing and peaceful. Definitely saw happy holidays but the fun paper pack can be used all year round.

  9. Brian, this set of cards is amazing!! They would make a beautiful collection. I love your classy mix of DSP. Beautiful!

  10. I love these adorable cards, Brian, using these DSP papers. The foam adhesive sheets make adhering the letters so easy. Enjoy this Saturday!

  11. A terrific trio of cards. I love the colors and the clean tailored look.

  12. I love the color combinations. Helps me a lot.

  13. Suzanne Patt Cullen

    I love “everything “ about your card today, Brian!
    And I will have to order the die set you used! Why didn’t I do that already? ??‍♀️

  14. Great cards Brian and truly what I consider classic in design.
