Holiday/New Year Card

Today, I was inspired by the Global Design Project sketch challenge. Here is the sketch layout:

And here is the card I came up with:

I like that the sentiment isn’t specific – it can be used for Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year’s, or even a winter birthday! I stuck to only using the two colors (Whisper White and Soft Sky) since the snowflake packs such a powerful punch and I wanted that to be the star of the card.

Variations on a Theme – Paper Pumpkin

I finally had a chance to play with my November Paper Pumpkin kit. If you haven’t heard of Paper Pumpkin, it is a great Stampin’ Up! kit where each month you subscribe, you get a full kit mailed to you to make a set of cards or projects. To order Paper Pumpkin or any other supplies I used, click here.

While Stampin’ Up! provides great instructions for a kit to make, my first three are variations on the sample card provided.

This first one is a smaller card (3×3) which is perfect to attach to a gift.

Second, I brought out the glitter (Dazzling Diamonds) to mimic freshly fallen snow.

Third, I used the velum provided along with adding some texture with an embossing folder and die cut.

Christmas, continued

Although some of the radio stations started playing Christmas music a few weeks ago, I am holding out until Friday (the day after Thanksgiving) to start tuning in myself. I made this card to get me even more excited for all of the great Christmas songs I will listen and sing along to through the season.

I am currently working on building my Christmas shopping list for friends and family. I’m also preparing myself for writing Thank You cards for gifts I receive so I’ve started working on some Christmas-themed Thank You cards as well.
