Even though Christmas isn't really here yet, it is right around the corner! I got started on my Christmas card collection with the Home for Christmas DSP and the Cozy Christmas stamp set. Here are some of my creations:
This first one was inspired by the SU-per challenge of this week: a sketch!
This card has a Real Red base, standard size, then the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper cut at 10.5cm x 13.9 cm. This way I got something more similar to the sketch. I used my Mossy Meadow to stamp "Have yourself a merry little Christmas" on Very Vanilla cardstock and punched it out with a 2" circle punch. I also cut a strip of Mossy Meadow cardstock to make the embellishment behind the circle. Then I cut some slots and added a bit of ribbon in the top right corner. (It's supposed to be a bow)
Next I made a card inspired by the A/W catalogue p8.
I stamped the santa and reindeer on the base of the card in Cherry Cobbler, then added the DSP which I cut at 14.4cm x 8 cm. I stamped the sentiment on Very Vanilla (in Cherry Cobbler) and added some of the Home for Christmas Enamel dots
Then I wanted to make a card that would fit in one of those long envelopes. So I measured it and decided my card would have to be 10.5 x 21 to fit inside.
Now, those are the "warm" cards. With your typical Christmas colours of Red, Green and Gold. In this post I wanted to show the versatility of this DSP in combination with the stamp set, however, so next I made these cards:
So, the gold one:
I started with some Kraft paper, cut at 14.9 x 10.5 (half an a4). I cut some Very Vanilla at 14.4 x 10 and the DSP at 13.9 x 9.5. I tied the string around the DSP twice and folded it into a double bow. I then stamped the sentiment onto the Very vanilla piece with Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I then cut it out with my cuttlebug and oval dies. I cut the scalloped oval out of a piece of scrap kraft paper. Then I adhered everything to the card.

I hope this has been inspiring :) and see you next time!
