Hi, today I am sharing the Christmas card I am making to send to my friends and family this year. Now, if you are one of these said friends or family members, read no further…and keep an eye on your letterbox early next week. 🙂
One of my favourite bundles from the Holiday catalogue this year is the Ready for Christmas bundle. I love it when you can create little scenes with stamps and dies. I decided fairly early this would be the set I’d use to make my cards however, it took me a while to settle on the design and colour scheme. In the end, I decided to move away from the traditional colours of Christmas and try something a little different. In fact, the colours I have chosen actually match my Christmas tree decorations this year (which I would show you but I haven’t put it up yet. *fingers crossed* for this weekend!).
I have actually kept the card quite simple. As with the last Christmas card I shared, I recommend working in batches as this will help streamline the process. I stamped up all the images, coloured them all (nothing too fancy). I embossed the sentiment (how I love the Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder – it melted like a dream!) and then it was time to die cut. I die cut the stockings, cookies, table and the cute little dog. Then it was a case of bringing all the components together.
Here’s the card…
I hope they like it. I really had fun colouring all those images. I’d love to explore this set more and look at using some of the other images in the set such as the Christmas tree and the presents. There is just so much packed into this bundle.
If you love this bundle too, it is a last-chance item and is available while supplies last. What this means is that the stamp and die set will no longer be available as a bundle with a 10% discount. After 2 January 2018, you will still be able to buy both but not at the discounted price.
A few important reminders:
- The second reserve window for the Stamparatus is now open. All the details are here.
- Don’t forget the Year-End Sales Event is still going on. Here’s your chance to grab some of your favourites before they are gone. All the details are here or you can shop 24/7 at my online store. The direct link to this Sales event is here.
- Lastly, Stampin’ Up! stated December 11, 2017, was the last day to ensure pre-Christmas delivery.
Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
Listed below are the supplies used to create the above project. If the stamp set comes in different types (such as clear mount or wood mount) or as a bundle, I link to both.
