clean & simple sunday no. 56

My plan for today is to focus on my personal Christmas cards and the work of getting them made and ready to send out in mid-December. I have posted many great examples of clean and simple Christmas card ideas under the Card Gallery tab here on my blog. If you’ve never checked that out and you’re looking for ideas, do pay that tab a visit!  It’s not too late to make some beautiful, simple, handmade Christmas cards to send out this year…

Today I thought I’d share a few ideas I came up with centered around a stamp set from the A|S 2012 Holiday Catalog. This set made my wish list early on—it’s called Let It Snow. I truly believe a stamper can never have too many snowflake stamps! Like real snowflakes, every single one is different. This sweet, whimsical set fits right in with my collection and I am delighted to showcase it for you today…

These two cards above incorporate a sugarsky and cherry color-scheme. All products used to create these three card samples are from A Muse|Studio.

This card also incorporates cherry and sky in the color scheme, but because I also used a strip of Twas the Night card stock, I used vanilla card stock to stamp the snowflake image. The vanilla card stock matches the background of the Twas the Night card stock and gives the card warmer tone.

So join me!  Throw on your favorite sweater and some wooly socks, pop in a Christmas CD, grab your supplies and whip up a few Christmas cards… I’m sure that the act of creating the “little gifts” that handmade Christmas cards become, will put you right in the holiday spirit!

  1. I love these snowflake cards, they are so fresh and colorful and could be used as winter BD cards, thank you cards, as well as Christmas cards. Thanks for all the wonderful ideas Kris. XXOO
