DIY Christmas Card Planning!

Posted on

If you’re thinking about doing up your own Christmas Cards this year, now is probably a good time to get yourself organized.  Are you looking to create something sweet and simple?  Or perhaps something a little more ornate and festive?  Either way, hand-designing your own Christmas Cards should be fun!  No stress allowed!

One of my favourite Christmas cards to date that I had the opportunity to make was done at a Workshop with a fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator – Christyne Richardson last month.  We made a total of 10 cards that day ranging from super simple to a little more involved.  Here’s the one I speak of:

Such a simple design and it can totally be customized to fit your tastes.  I know in time I’d like to try this in a series of Blues to give it that much more of a “wintery” feel.  To make the card above, here’s the list of items used:

*Whisper White Card Stock
*Primose Petals Card Stock
*Silver Shimmer Paper
*Snowflake Soiree Stamp Set
*Pink Pirouette Ink Pad
*Primrose Petals Ink Pad
*Basic Rhinestones
*Anything else you think you’d like to add to it!

That said, I should also mention that Stampin’ Up! is having a major Online sale over the next couple of weeks.  It Starts MONDAY!!!  If you are thinking of placing an order anytime soon, hold off until Monday!  And to help you with your Christmas Card planning, check out the full list of deals HERE.  There are 24 hour blitz deals as well within this period so have a look and see if that item you had your eye on is up for discounted grabs!  😉
