Xmas Card Ideas

Xmas Card Ideas - blog.Stamp4Joy.comI've been sharing a number of Xmas card ideas here, which is helping me get my own cards done.  🙂  I still haven't decided on which design I'm going to stick with, though, but maybe when it's time I'll have done enough Christmas cards to send out… they'll just all be different!  Even when I bought my cards (years ago) I would usually buy a number of different designs, so nothing's really changed. 😉

This card blends the Bright & Beautiful stamp set with the Greetings of the Season set (retired).  I thought it would look bright & beautiful in gold.   I pulled the gold patterned paper from Gold Soiree Designer Paper, and then added Brushed Gold Card Stock.  The star was embossed in gold onto Early Espresso card stock, then cut out with the Stars framelits.

What do you think, is this one a keeper for this year's handmade Xmas cards?

    1. Thanks, Deb! I actually don’t think it’s that expensive for a handmade Christmas card. Not counting the adhesive and the stamps and framelits, which you can use over and over on other projects, I figure the cost of the card to be about $1.08 retail. And that’s including s&h and tax, which is 9.5% where I live! It would cost more if you didn’t have any of the supplies and had to buy all the card stock and designer paper, ribbon, and embossing powder to start out with, but then you’d have enough supplies to make over 40 cards homemade cards!

      Of course, as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator I can save 20% or more off that, which makes it an even better value! 🙂

    1. Thanks, Julee. I really like how it came out. I think I’m going to create a Christmas card using silver paper, too. 🙂
