How I Made It

This festive card features many of the products included in the latest Simon release, such as: the Ornamental CZ Design stamp and die set, sentiments from the Critter Sweaters and Tiny Words Christmas sets, a background stamped with the Outline Snowflakes cling, and even some star sequins that I pulled from the Christmas Magic mix.

I stamped the ornaments with Willow, Lipstick Red, Rosie Cheeks, Mint Candy and Sea Glass inks from Simon. They are arranged onto a white card base that is white heat embossed using the Outline Snowflakes cling; with the emboss resist technique, I blended Mint Candy and Sea Glass inks around the edges for some soft, subtle color.

The greetings are embossed too; I used Rosie Cheeks ink and Singing in the Rain glitter embossing powder from WOW for the Merry Christmas. The smaller sentiment strips are white embossed on black cardstock with the Tiny Words Christmas set.

Finally, I added embellishments around the ornaments; a mix of silver confetti stars, stars from the Christmas Magic mix, and Clear Droplets.

I really love the modern feel of this card, as it carries both a fun and festive vibe that is fitting for this release and blog hop! I hope you will watch the video to see this card come together, and be sure to participate in the hop to see even more FUN and FESTIVE inspiration!

Thanks so much for visiting me … Happy Thursday!
