Paper Pumpkin Possibilities October Blog Hop Peaceful Christmas

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities October Blog Hop as we showcase alternative project ideas using the Peaceful Christmas Kit. This beautiful card kit has so many wonderful options and you will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you.
The cards in this month's kit are simply beautiful, especially the snowy scene in shades of gray and silver. I noticed that the design was on both the front and back of the card base and it gave me and idea to be able to double the number of cards I could create from these five card bases. I cut the back of the card base to create a card front and chose Soft Succulent cardstock for the card base to frame the design. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't capture the beautiful shimmer of the silver foil stars in my photos. I wanted the pretty scenery to be the main focus of my card design and added a sentiment label created with the Label Me Fancy Punch with Silver embossing to coordinate with the card design.

This clean and simple card design is a wonderful way to double the number of cards you can create from the five card bases with the shimmery snow scene. With just a few basic supplies, you can create an elegant set of Christmas cards. For the sentiment, I chose one of the images from the exclusive stamp set in the kit and heat embossed it with Silver embossing powder. I used the Silver trim from the Simply Elegant Trim pack and wrapped it around the card front twice and tied it in a knot at the front, towards the bottom of the card front. I attached the sentiment label over the Silver trim with Stampin' Dimensionals included in the kit. I then attached the card front to the Soft Succulent card base with Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it up. To finish off the card design, I added several Basic Rhinestone Jewels to the sky for a touch of bling. The Silver shimmer of this card design is so soft and pretty and the Soft Succulent cardstock adds a touch of color to help make the card front pop.
