Happy Friday! This is Julissa of Paper Gems by Jules and today I’m sharing some non-traditional Christmas cards. There are so many amazingly beautiful stamps to make Christmas and holiday cards, but here are two different cards that can go to that special someone and that coffee drinking friend! Both cards use the “Merry Christmas All Around Background” stamp in two different ways. Let’s start with coffee…
For the background, I started by stamping the entire stamp with a light teal color onto Raspberry Luxe card stock. In order to create that ombre look, I used a slightly darker color and only applied it to the bottom 3/4 of the stamp and re-stamped it. In order to make the edge of the darker ink subtle, I gently tapped the edge with a baby wipe. I continued this process using two darker colors. Last, I blended in some color on the edges and splattered white paint to give it a little snowy feel.
Send your coffee loving friend a unique personalized holiday card featuring Brystl Girl to show them how much you love them. This also makes a great gift card holder for your local coffee house.
Now, for that naughty or nice partner… let’s show them a little sassy love with Francine Girl. Stamping “Merry Christmas All Around” on Wild Cherry Luxe card stock and adding glittery embossing powder give this background a subtle but fun look. I colored Francine Girl with that same bold red color and found a Naught Nice stamp from “Dear Santa” stamp set to bring this red hot holiday themed card together.
How fun is it to take some of these Angie Girls and have them ring in the holidays?! Definitely try to take some of your favorite Angie Girls and Guys and have them get festive!
Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope you found some inspiration for your next crafting session. Until next time…
