Lately, I’ve been working with vellum a lot on my cards. The elegant translucence is so pretty and calming. After working with a lot of bright, rich colors for the holidays, I thought it would be nice to lighten it up a bit. We probably all have many thank you cards to send out, so today’s project is a thank you card set using some thick vellum and a stamp from Hero Arts.
Stamp sets with animals on them are very versatile. They’re great for all kinds of card themes such as birthdays, encouragement and friendship. I also like to add them to baby-themed cards since you need all the cuteness you can get with these. For today’s project, I borrowed a few animals from Avery Elle’s Peek A Boo pals set to create a little welcome home card for a new baby.
Did you ever try cutting around a circle-shaped stamp yourself with just scissors? It’s not always so easy. For today’s project, I’m using an older stamp set from Basic Grey with some really nice circle-shaped stamps. To help me cut them out, I’ll be using a fun tool from We R Memory Keepers called the Circle Spin & Trim.
The holiday season wouldn’t be the same without some fresh winter greenery. Holly, pine, red berries—all look gorgeous and festive decorating the doors and store fronts around town. For today’s project, I’m using paper “greens’ to frame a simple sentiment for a cheerful Christmas greeting card.
Glitter and Christmas cards definitely go hand in hand. For my project today, I’m showcasing Bo Bunny’s Glitter Paste in Emerald with a stencil from Echo Park. The stencil is called Branches, from their Celebrate Autumn line, but I thought with some green glitter paste, it could easily be used for a holiday themed card.
Nothing says holidays like pine trees covered in snow with just a bit of green peeking out. Even if you’re in a warm climate, you can still re-create that winter-y cozy feeling on a greeting card.
