Not much “new or unusual” in this post. I didn’t get around to making enough Christmas cards (which is completely normal for me, sadly). But I did make a few.
The first card I will share uses Dasher – a single stamp sold by StampinUp that is wildly popular, and completely wonderful. A simple color scheme and layout. I am not a big traditional red/green person, so when SU came out with Razzleberry, I was very happy at how elegantly it looks with Hunter. Now, if I could just stamp straight 😉
Next up is a wintery card. Again, not a traditional color scheme – but a fabulous one. Which is why I’m pretty sure I didn’t come up with it! I know when I was looking to make this card I did lots of scouting, so the color scheme was probably found as was the stacked torn edge border. Sorry, I didn’t save links for credit (well, I may have, but my computer crashed and who knows where anything is now!).
I don’t have many “current” Stampin’Up! sets, so when I do work for mom I tend to pull my hair out 😉 This is a siple layout – I’ve seen it a hundred times, but for this set it works well. Also the color is a trendy pairing of Bermuda and Red that I’ve seen before, but I like it.
Finally, a card I cased from the Crafty Girl blog. I loved her card, but this card was for my mom and brown was not gonna cut it! I knew I wanted to change the colors to blue. I kept everything else pretty much the same except instead of paper I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I wanted to keep it completely SU so mom could show it off, but no such luck (though I doubt that will keep her from showing it off, lol).
I hope to get a New Years card made that I can send to my other relatives and friends. Fingers crossed that I get in the mood some day soon!
