Absolutely BEAUTIFUL Handmade Christmas Cards!
Sometimes just playing around with stuff yields fabulous results, like with these stunning, gorgeous, beautiful handmade Christmas cards that I honestly made “by accident”. Let me explain…..(but take a look):
When I saw the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley – a new sort of offering from Stampin' Up! – I was confused. It's $70! What the heck? Why so much? But, because I love you all so much, I splurged so I could tell you honestly whether or not it was a legit way to spend your precious crafting cash.
Well! IS IT EVER WORTH IT!!! There are so many – so so many! – ways to use the goodies in this kit that as much as I don't love seeing big price tags I will absolutely jump on every “medley” going forward. You saw this project here and this one here that I made using the stamps and some of the paper from the set. But there were these sheets of these thick stickers and since I am not really a sticker person I wasn't sure what I would do with them. So I started playing and, like, ten seconds later I had this card! Seriously! And there are about 20 deer or so in the set PLUS a bunch of trees and candy canes and stars and banners…….like, seriously, stick a few down and you are D-O-N-E done. So you can whip up a big ol' batch of cards using the goodies in here!
And because this Medley is at the top of the price range, it gets you halfway to a hostess set. In fact, I used one of the hostess sets for the greeting that I used on this card. I love shopping strategically – meaning getting a grouping of products that helps you create a whole batch of projects – and these new Medleys get you more bang for your buck than anything else currently available. I am so hoping this is a trend!
Let's take another peek:
Now you COULD texturize that Very Vanilla stitched square behind the deer but since I was literally just fiddling around I wanted to show you how sometimes just going as simple as possible and letting the elements stand out makes for beautiful handmade Christmas cards that are totally send-worthy! Another thing you should know is that the paper assortment in this Medley is gorgeous! One paper even features some gold foiling in the pattern……the catalog just does not even come close to doing this assortment of everything justice!
Here is a list of the supplies used to create this card. To order these supplies, simply click on the image below. Remember, you can't buy the hostess set, it is only redeemable with a $150 order, but it's listed below for easy ordering. If you purchase everything below you will get the stamp for free and be able to make a TON of cards WITH leftovers and one of the best (in my opinion) die sets in the catalog.
For orders over $150 placed through my store, don't use the hostess code, you will still get you free tutorials from me. Also, if you don't get your tutorials, make sure in your Stampin Up store profile that you haven't selected the option to not allow the demonstrator to contact you. If that is checked, even if you use the code, I can't see your name/email, nuttin' – so I don't know where to send your tutorials.
