Stamping With Friends Christmas Cards Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamping With Friends Christmas Cards Blog Hop as we help inspire you to create your own beautiful cards for the Holidays. Our Design Team members will be sharing their beautiful projects and ideas to help spark your creativity.
One of my favorite things about being a Demonstrator, is the opportunity to take advantage of new products early. For today's card design, I had fun with the new Fittings Florets Collection, which will be available to customers November 1st, but Demonstrators can order it early during the month of October. This beautiful collection consists of a Sneak Peek of a new bundle from the January-June 2023 Mini Catalog, along with exclusive designer series paper, embellishments and a bonus stamp set that will only be available while supplies last. With these fabulous new products, you can create projects all through the year for so many occasions.

This pretty clean and simple Christmas card has a whimsical feel with the addition of the cute little gnome. One of my favorite color combinations for Christmas is Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen and I just love the pop of color that the Sweet Sorbet berries add to this card design. The designer series paper has white berries as part of the design but I decided to color them with the Light Sweet Sorbet Stampin' Blends Marker to give it more of a Christmas feel. I am a big fan of ovals, so I was so excited to get the new Framed Florets Dies with the beautiful oval options that layer so beautifully together. I chose Soft Succulent for the detailed frame and Evening Evergreen for the sentiment, tying in with the colors in the designer series paper. I love how the Gold embossing of the sentiment from the Framed & Festive stamp set pops against the Evening Evergreen cardstock and it gives the card design a classically elegant look. This stamp set has so many wonderful sentiments for the holidays and I just love the combination of fonts. For the gnome, I colored the image using Stampin' Blends Markers to add a pop of color against the card front. To finish off th design, I added several Soft Succulent Opal Rounds to the sentiment label for a touch of bling. This card design was so much fun to create and I love how versatile this new collection of products is for creating projects not only for the holidays but throughout the year.
