I know it may seem a bit odd to see a holiday/winter card in April, but this is the time of year I like to start creating my cards for the holiday season. I sent out around 150 cards last year, most of them unique designs vs. mass produced cards, so I definitely need to get started early.
I love the simple elegant design of this card. The trees are from the Winter Woods stamp set and the sentiment is from the Hearts Come Home stamp set (retiring June 3, 2019), both from Stampin’ Up!® I embossed them using Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Night of Navy cardstock. I matted the embossed panel on a piece of silver foil to coordinate with the embossing. I then adhered it to a top-folding card base made from Night of Navy cardstock.
There are some coordinating dies that go with the Winter Woods stamp set. This set will be carrying over to the new 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up catalog launching on June 4, however, the special 10% off bundle pricing will be going away. If you are interested in this bundle, you’ll definitely want to purchase it by no later than June 3 to take advantage of the bundle discount.
For the inside of the card, I stamped part of the left-most tree in the lower right corner of a piece of Whisper White cardstock using Night of Navy ink. I matted the panel using more of the Silver Foil then adhered it to the card base and the completed this simple classic design.
I’m entering this card in the following challenge(s):
- Christmas Card Throwdown – the current theme is metallic plus one additional color. I used silver and Night of Navy.
