Hi all! Welcome back for the 2019 Holiday Card Series! This is the 11th year for the card series and I’m excited to get started!
For Day 1, I have four easy and simple cards made using different backgrounds and Joyful Frame dies from Simon Say Stamp.
(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).
Each card was first started by creating a background:
- Green Card – Green Leaf cardstock with the CZ Design’s Reindeer Background stamped in Green Leaf ink
- Red Card – Schoolhouse Red cardstock with Hero Arts’ Nordic Holiday Bold Prints background stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed with Gilded embossing powder
- Brown Card – Desert Storm cardstock with Concord & 9th’s Woven Plaid background stamped in Sparrow Ink
- White Card – Strathmore Cold Press Watercolor Paper embossed using Creative Expressions’ Retro Poinsettia 3D Embossing Folder
The greeting for all the cards was created by die cutting Simon’s Joyful Frame out of gold foil cardstock and vellum.
I created white card bases out of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and adhere all of the backgrounds to the card fronts. Then the greetings were adhered to each card.
Thanks for stopping by today! I’ll be back on Monday with Day 2 of the Holiday Card Series! :)
