2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Card Series Day 3

We are getting there! Here is Day 3.  I absolutely love silver embossing with Soft Sky, one of my favorite combos.  What I like most about this card, is that it uses stampsets that aren’t really designed for Christmas Cards.  While yes, the Better Together set offers a Christmas sentiment, it also has multiple other uses.

2017 Holiday Card Series Day 2

Good morning all,

Sadly, I am behind schedule with editing and uploading by about a week.  They are coming, I promise :o).  Any who, I hope you are all getting into the swing of things with the holidays QUICKLY approaching.

This is a fairly quick and easy card to mass produce if you need a card in a hurry and requires only a few materials.


This is one of those cards that can easily be stepped up if you want to glam it up bu just adding some rhinestones or even some ribbon across the middle.  Here is the inspiration sheet with a complete list of supplies and all the measurements. 

You can click here or on the image above to watch me create this card on my YouTube Channel

Day 12 – FINAL DAY of the 2016 Holiday Card Series

So sorry guys that this post didn’t go live.  I had it all tee’d up to post last week and I just noticed that it never did.  However, if you are a YouTube Subscriber than you have already seen this card.


Don’t you just LOVE that Red Door?  This is  truly my vision for my front door.  My mother-in-law just recently installed a red front door and I can be truly honest with you and tell you, I AM SO JEALOUS!  Although I do not have the red door, I will have this wreath.  So as you can tell, this card project was indeed inspired by my holiday decorating vision.  The step by step video is below and I did not show all the die cutting involved in this card, because there was a lot (not gonna lie here), but I think the end result was totally worth it!  All the supplies are listed  below.
