Make the season merry with cards you create using the Merry Snowflakes Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up! It has sentiments for the front of the card, messages for the inside, and enough snowflakes to make wintery and festive.
I wanted a quick & easy for for today’s project, so I used a basic card sketch and just added a few scrap strips of Penguin Playmates Designer Paper that were sitting on my stamping table. I used the colors from the paper to create this color combination:
I love how it turned out but if it’s not up your alley, you I have tons of other color combo’s you can chose from my Color Combination Library. Here’s how I made this card:
