Welcome to the Mini Catty Blog Hop where demonstrators from all over the world join forces to inpsire you creatively with loads of ideas using products from the newly released Holiday Mini (officially known as the July-December Mini Catalog)
Peace to You stamp set immediately stood out to me as a great stamp set to celebrate the reason for the season of Christmas. With bold, wood-cut type images you can go super simple or very stepped up and get great results either way.
I always make at least one purple Christmas card every year. Although I'm a HUGE fan of all things traditional at Christmas including the classic red and green color schemes, purple is a great color for winter as well as faith-based Christmas cards as it is symbolic of royalty. The birth of Jesus Christ, the true reason for the season, is the entrance of the King of Kings to the earthly realm.
The full list of Stampin' Up! supplies used, a combination of annual catalog and mini catalog products, is shown and linked below for your reference and shopping convenience.
I love incorporating what I call "touchable texture" in my handmade cards. For this Peace to You card idea, I used the Wintry Embossing Folders (set of 2 minis, I used the snowflake one here) on both Night of Navy Cardstock and Snowy White Velvet Sheets. The softness as well as embossed texture of the velvet sheets is apparent when you hold the card:)
Although I employed Fresh Freesia as the purple in my handmade Christmas card, it still ends up with an overall classic feel to my design. What do you think about the card??!!!
