ICS June Blog Hop 2021-2023 In Colors

Welcome to the ICS June Blog Hop as we showcase projects using the new 2021-2023 In Colors. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you to create your own beautiful projects.
The 2021-2023 In Colors are beautiful vibrant colors and I love how they combine together to create wonderful combinations for projects. For my card design today, I chose to use Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent, one of my favorite combinations. I think these two greens will be perfect for the holidays and I see Evening Evergreen as a beautiful Christmas green.  
For this Christmas card design, I chose to use the new Tidings of Christmas 6"x6" Designer Series Paper (item #155718) with the Perfectly Plaid stamp set. I love the designs in this paper pack and the sentiment I chose has a beautifully elegant font that looks great when heat embossed. The sentiment tag was created using one of the Tailor Made Tags Dies, one of my new favorite die sets from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. While it may be too early for some people to be thinking about Christmas, I can't wait to explore more possibilities with these beautiful colors and this festive new designer series paper.

This clean and simple Christmas card design is easy to duplicate and would be perfect for creating multiples. I love creating Christmas cards at this time of the year because you don't have the stress of the holidays to deal with and it's always fun to play with new products. For the sentiment, I used Copper embossing powder on the Sahara Sand cardstock tag to coordinate with the colors in the designer series paper. I colored three of the Basic Rhinestones with the Light Evening Evergreen Stampin' Blends Marker to add a touch of bling without being over the top. The combination of the Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent Ribbons helps finish off the design and I used the Gray Granite Baker's Twine from the Baker's Twine Essentials Pack to tie a knot at the base of the ribbons. This design would also work well as a masculine card for the holidays.
