welcome back to the 12 Days of Christmas 2017 series! If you happened to have missed yesterday’s card and video hop, you can click here to go back and see it! Today I wanted to show off some cards that anyone can make as bulk cards this holiday season using some traditional Christmas colours – red, green and white. Today’s giveaway is fantastic and something you don’t want to miss – 2 Stamps, 1 Die set, 3 Inks and a Large Block from Catherine Pooler Designs – Thank you for sponsoring today’s prize!
There are many ways you can create cards with traditional colours! I used the same three colours to create all three cards and create a colour palette. I stamped a few backgrounds using the Peppermint Stick Background in Rockin’ Red and used the background in various ways to add some colour to the cards.
Stamping some simple holiday words onto a pretty die can be quick and easy but it is so elegant as shown using the Merry and Bright Boughs set. Christmas cards don’t need to be complicated. Catherine’s inks make it so easy as well because they just stamp so well! No splotches or white patches here!
There is something about wreaths that make the season so festive and with the Merry and Bright Boughs set you can create your own. Consider adding some Nuvo Drops to add some texture or simply stamp the berries in red. There are little ways to make cards more interesting and Nuvo drops are some of my favourite ways to add a pop of colour.
For the last card, I created a cluster of small stamps from the Hip Holiday stamp set in order to create a whimsical, starry background. I added the stag to the front of the card in black which is a very bold way to add a focal point.
