Simple Christmas Card Design

|

Send warm wishes from your home this season using this simple Christmas Card design and the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set. This stamp set includes images to create custom poinsettias and messages to personalize your cards.

I know we’re supposed to be modest about our own creations, but honestly, I think this is one of my most favorite Christmas Card designs ever!

I love the colors, I love the simplicty (you could make a ton of these in a hurry!) and most of all, I just love how beautiful it is to the eye! Who wouldn’t love to receive this card in the Mail?

What makes this card so easy to make is the fact that the stamp set is a gorgeous two-step stamp set. That means that all the images work together, allowing you to layer two or more images to create one final image with extra texture and dimension in the colors you want. That’s exactly what I did here!

And this card is perfect for mass-production type stamping! #1 – cut all your cardstock; #2 stamp all the outline images in Evening Evergreen and then #3, stamp the other 2 images in their appropriate colors. Assemble and you’re done! You can download the full instructions below.
