So hop with us and visit all participating blogs! I am sure you’ll get lots of ideas and inspiration to get you going! 

Let’s get started!

Christmas Card

Since we are featuring Christmas projects for this blog hop, I decided to showcase the Tidings of Christmas Suite from the Annual Catalog. This suite has an elegant designer series paper (DSP) and a super cute bundle called Tidings & Trimmings. 

The die set in this bundle has a great set of stars that can get die cut and use as a standalone piece or as the focal point in your cards! And this is exactly how I used it on my card today as you can see below.

Color Combination 

As usual, I followed the DSP to pick a color combo. This has been by far one of the easiest ways to get color combinations for your cards. 

So if you ever struggle with color ideas give this a try! Pick a DSP pack and then pay with the colors included in the pack! 

By the way, if you have not heard yet, there is an awesome promotion during July where selected pattern papers are at 15% discount! And the Tidings of Christmas DSP is part of that promotion, so if you have thinking about this paper pack, this month is perfect to add it to your collection! 

Think about it, if you get the Tidings of Christmas DSP, you could start making your Christmas cards right away! 😉 Ready to get your favorites DSP? then go to my store and put them in your cart. 

Other packs included in this promotion are listed below:

  • Tiding of Christmas, In Good Taste, Pansy Petals
  • Beauty of the Earth, Bloom where You’re Planted, In the Wild

Christmas Card Details & Other Information 

Below you can see the inside of this card, as you can see this is an easy fancy fold. 

For this fancy fold you just need to fold the card base in half and then the front in half again and you are done!  super easy right?

Also as you can see for the inside of this card I stamped the star and the sentiment. The star is with the Soft Sea Foam, mainly because I wanted a light color under the sentiment.  And the sentiment is in Early Expresso. 

For the sentiment in the front I used Evening Green and then punched it with the dual oval. 

One thing to note is that the detail star in the front can be glue down two ways:

  • Add adhesive sheets to the back of the Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and then die cut – this will create a sticker so it is easy to glue it to the green star. 
  • Or you can due cut the Cherry Cobbler star and then add it using the fine tip glue pen, which is what I did on this one 

Both ways will work perfectly, so just pick the one that is easiest for you!

Also beneath the green star I added the elegant trim to pop a bit of gold in the card.
