Hey Sam here, I know for some it maybe too early for Holiday Cards, but I love making them all year long. I also tend to make a card design once so I need a whole year to make enough cards to send to friends and family around the Holidays. Here are a couple of ideas for the upcoming ‘Holiday Floral Stamp set and Floral Die set‘ that are releasing next Saturday, September 10th. I have a sneaking suspicion this may become one of my favourite items of the new Halloween/Christmas release. I paired these cards with the ‘Large Word Christmas Die’ set, which will also be apart of the same release. If you looking for some additional ideas on how to use this set, stay tuned, next week I will also share a different method for using this stamp set and dies.
The Holiday Floral is a layering stamp set that creates a gorgeous floral Christmas tree. Beauty of this Holiday Floral set and Holiday Floral dies is there are many ways they can be combined for different looks. They also work nicely on their own.
Get the look:
For the first card I stamped the tree the way it was originally intended. The initial outline layer I stamped and heat embossed in silver. The 2nd solid leaf layer I stamped with Swimming Hole ink which is a lovely versatile light blue. The large floral layer I stamped with Pink Tutu ink and the final smaller flower layer I choose to stamp and heat emboss in silver again. I then choose to die cut the tree and lightly add Swimming Hole ink around the edge so it had a softer look than a white background. I die cut ‘Tis the Season’ from ‘Large Word Christmas Die’ set out of pink foil and chose to back the sentiment with 3 additional die cut pieces of scrap white card stock for strength and dimension. I adhered the tree and the sentiment to a navy blue mini slim card base of 3 1/2”x 6 1/2”. Lastly I decorated the card and tree with crystals and tiny pink pearls.
