Christmas is my favourite time of the year, but when it comes to sending Christmas Cards, I love to mix up old and new styles to create something unique. This card sums that up!
The Merry Christmas to All Bundle has a mix of fonts which works on so many different styles of card, and on this card, I love that traditional script font cut from the gorgeous Joyous Noel glimmer paper.
This was my first time using the Nothing Sweeter Bundle. It’s a great set for creating tags and belly bands for Christmas confectionary gifts (the stamped images resemble cookies). But I decided to do something a bit different and use the tree die to create an actual Christmas tree for my card front, cut from the stunning Joyous Noel DSP. The dies are so versatile and pretty, and their use stretches far beyond Christmas. Just love the stitched border effect, though I’m thinking my little stitched tree has a Nordic feel about it. What do you think?
I used white heat embossing on the ‘Christmas’ label for a nice crisp white image against the Sahara Sand card front, with a few white sequins to finish.
Which colour way is your favourite? I’m leaning towards the tranquil tide…..!
Anyway, thanks for visiting today! xxx
Soft Suede Classic Stampin’ Pad
I posted a variation of this card a while back using the main colours from the Joyous Noel Suite (https://stampingwithlove.net/2018/08/31/joyous-noel-detailed-deer-sneak-peek). Today I’m posting the same card in a very different colourway – gray granite and soft suede.
I would never have thought to put these colours together had I not been taking them from the stunning Joyous Noel DSP, but I absolutely love the colour combination on this card. So sophisticated and Christmassy in its own right, and no red or green in sight!
I coloured a few rhinestones in soft suede with my Stampin’ Blends. This DSP is so elegant and rich, and the copper foiling adds glamour without overpowering everything else. You really need to see it with your own eyes to appreciate it -love, love, love.
I’m just loving copper at the moment, so when I saw the Joyous Noel Suite in the new Autumn/Winter catalogue, I knew it was one for me. I teamed it with the brand new Detailed Deer Dies to create this Christmas card.
I normally prefer more contemporary colours at Christmas, but this suite and all the elements in it are so elegant and sparkly, and tranquil tide and merry merlot are a great fresh take on the traditional green and red Christmas colour way.
The copper foiled Joyous Noel DSP is divine, and I love it as a background to my copper foiled Deer. I created my sparkly tranquil tide sprig using the brand new sprig punch with some coordinating Joyous Noel glimmer paper.
Love love love this entire suite – it will be available to purchase when the new catalogue launches on 5th September xx
