Eeek! I am so excited to be releasing another stamp set with Gina K. Designs! Christmas time is my absolute favorite time of year. (I may have mentioned in the past that Autumn is my absolute favorite time of year, and the reason for that is because I can never make up my mind.) 🎄 or 🍂 ?!?
Christmas cards are definitely some of my favorite to create, and I am so thrilled to be designing Christmas cards with my very own stamp set! This set has so many unique ‘images’ that can really fill up a card front, making your holiday card making a breeze! The cards I am showing you today take no time at all and have a nice clean and simple look. I feel like everyone is making clean and simple cards right now.
There’s even a coordinating die set for the little ornament toppers! You would not believe how many of these I cut out with glitter paper the other day. They are the cutest addition to the Gina K. + Therm-O-Web single and double stitched circle dies. My round greetings fit inside the circles, but you could even use colored or patterned cardstock as an ornament with the topper! (Ahem… future blog post. Stay tuned.)
This card is so quick to make. I used my MISTI to stamp my greeting on Heavy Base Weight White cardsdtock with the Black Onyx ink. I prefer it to Amalgam ink when stamping focal images and greetings that don’t require any coloring. I then cut it out with the medium single stitch die. For the glittery border, I just used a random circle Spellbinders die that was a bit larger.
This greeting is a touch smaller than the other one, so I cut it out with the double stitched circle and cut a glittery border with the slightly larger single stitch circle die. I think the red is gorgeous for this card, but the green is fun , too. What are your thoughts?
I sponged a little Sea Glass ink on my main card panel to add a little interest. I think that the pale misty blue adds quite a bit and gives the card a non-traditional twist. I kind of want to try doing some light snowflake stamping on the mist!
For even simpler cards, just stamp the greeting directly onto the card front and stick a glittery ornament topper above it! These cards are great if you are in a time crunch with your Christmas cards, or if you just have lots to send. The glitter cardstock really makes these cards pop.
