Last in the Series

Here is the last in my series of cards inspired from a card I saw on Splitcoast Stampers.  You can view my two previous posts here and here

This version, as I said yesterday, is my favorite.  It’s never to early to start to get ready for Christmas, and this is a simple, sweet card to share your holiday joy with your loved ones.  It has the same layout as the two previous posts, but includes a few more details.  Call it the older sister of my two previous posts if you will. 🙂

The background of this card has been stamped tone on tone with snowflakes to add a bit more texture and interest.  The main image piece has been backed with red cardstock.  The same rounded corners, crimped edge, and button accent all tie together to form this simple, rustic Christmas card.

This card is available for purchase as a set of 4 cards or as a single card in my Etsy store, Papered with Love

Here is a shot of all 4 cards grouped together.

All of the cards feature the sentiment “joy to the world”.  I think this sweet little card will do just that!

Here are a few more detail shots of the cards.

In this one you can see the envelope flap has crimped to echo the crimped edge of the image on the card.  I love that sweet detail!

And this one shows the dimension of the card.  I think it is so neat to see the detail of the card from the side.

I wanted to take a moment to show you all how I package up my card sets.  All sets of cards are packaged in a clear plastic card box to protect the cards during shipping, provide a great way to keep your cards together, and allow for you to give a set of cards as a fun, thoughtful gift.

I hope you all have enjoyed this series!  Be on the look out for my postings soon!

Merry and Bright Christmas Wishes

I know… it’s not even Halloween yet, but this is the time to start planning for Christmas!  I love this card.  It had lots of fun, luxurious details that make it all up.

I feel like I could sing the “Favorite Things” song about this card!  It has texture, glitter, ribbon, and buttons – what more can a girl as for???

This card features a really neat stamp set that has tons of different ornaments to hang from a pine branch.  This striped round ornament is on of my favorites!  I highlighted the striped portion by putting a piece of sticky strip over the stripes and then pouring on some Martha Stewart fine crystal glitter.  This strip is SO sticky that none of the glitter moves!

The bottom half of the card has been dry embossed with snowflakes, and then a strip of red cardstock with a glittery stripe brings attention to the main image.  Everything is all tied together with a shimmery red organza bow with a vintage green button on top.

Look at all of those cute details!merry and bright2

This card is available for purchase in my Etsy store in two ways!  First, as an individual card here, Merry & Bright Handmade Card and as a set of cards here, Merry & Bright Set of 4 Handmade Cards.

Here is a picture of the set of cards.  I package them up in a clear card box that not only serves as additional protection while shipping the cards, but allows for this set to also be a cute little gift.  I think that these would be an awesome gift for anyone who loves pretty stationary and cards!

And here is a shot of all 4 of these beauties all lined up!
