Today I have two cards to share with you, the first featuring CZ Designs’ newest Simon stamp set, Clean Line Christmas. I stamped the trees with teal, green and coral inks, along with a gold embossed greeting underneath. Around the trees I stamped some snowballs with a kraft ink and added fun sequins and gems on each tree for some fabulous, festive flair!
The second card I made features a more dramatic, clean and simple design. I started by stamping the Leaves and Berries background onto a red card base with embossing ink for that great, tone on tone look. Then, with some Aged Mahogany Distress Ink, I blended a darker color along the bottom third of the card for a bold, ombre look. I love how that makes the tone on tone stamping recede into the background a bit where the ink is most concentrated. Over the background I added a white Lea Snowflake die cut and gold Joyful greeting. Finally, a few confetti and sequin embellishments finished off the card!
I hope these two holiday cards inspire you to create with the new collection from Simon Says Stamp, Cheer and Joy!
