SBTD Christmas Blog Hop

It's time to hop with the SBTD Blog Hop as we celebrate Christmas. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world as they share their project ideas to help inspire you for the holidays.
 My Christmas card design features the Christmastime is Here Suite and I just love the classic elegance of this design and the way all these beautiful products coordinate to make it simple to create. For this card design, the Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper is the star of the show, with a little texture added to the background using the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder (item #151785) from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.
 To create this card, I chose Cherry Cobbler cardstock for the card base to coordinate with the designer series paper. I added a layer of Whisper White cardstock that I embossed with the Tufted 3D embossing folder and adhered a strip of the designer series paper to the left side of the card front with Snail Adhesive. I then used a piece of the Gold 1/4" Shimmer Ribbon to cover the seam along the edge of the designer series paper. 
The beautiful focal image was die cut from one of the sheets for designer series paper with the coordinating die from the Roses Dies. This is a wonderful way to add a beautifully colored image to your card without having to color it yourself. I added the die cut image to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals, so that it overlaps the designer series paper.
To create the sentiment, I stamped the image from the Christmas Rose stamp set with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Gold embossing powder. I used one of the coordinating dies from the Roses Dies to create the label and attached it to the card front with Snail Adhesive, making sure the label tucks underneath the rose image. This simply beautiful card design is simple to create and easy to duplicate as your family Christmas card design. 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today and I hope that my Christmas card design helps inspire you to create your own beautiful, timeless holiday projects with the Christmastime is Here Suite.
