Snow Day & Santa Cards!

Hi friends! Today is out first “snow day” where school is canceled and we are all home. I have all my Christmas cards ready to be addressed and mailed out and I think we will decorate the inside of the house for Christmas. I think I will make some homemade pizza dough today too since we are all here and I love the smell of bread baking. It doesn’t get much more homey that that!

Today I am going to share one of this years Christmas card designs. I will warn you I am using some older product so if you want to make this card you can substitute it for stuff you have. I love using up older products and mixing older stamps with new papers and stuff. I don’t like how stamping has become so “fast fashion-like” with stamps being discontinued as soon as you buy them. You can use any frame or wreath stamp in lieu of the frame I used and stamp a Santa face if you don’t have this paper (although I just bought this sheet of paper so it should still be available LOL!) Watch the video and then make your own!

Supplies (affiliate links may be used)

  • Pattern Paper: the Paper Studio (25 cents a sheet on sale)
  • Kraft cardstock (lightweight)
  • Cream cardstock (#110 heavyweight)
  • Ink (versafine Clair ink Rainforest and Glamour)
  • Embossing folder (Botanical 3D folder by Sizzix/Tim Holtz)
  • Sentiment Stamp & Dies (from Poinsettia stamp set by Stampendous)
  • Stamps: Sorry, I can’t find these available anywhere:( Frame Stamp & Die (from Cameo stamp set I think was from Time Holtz/Sizzix)
  • Mini Bow Die (Waffle Flower)
  • Other: Gems/Pearls/Rhinestones

I’ll share some other quick and easy Christmas cards and favors over the next week or so. In addition to making something meaningful crafting can give you a relaxing break from the hectic holiday season. Happy crafting!

  1. Oh I just love these cards! They use a lot of creative techniques and they look so vintage. I also love the freedom of using up what you have on hand. So many other cardmaking sites seem to require that you used specific materials and stamp sets. These are both frugal and pretty.

  2. Hi, Lindsay! I make homemade pizza dough sometimes, as well! I think I’ve got to do that soon!! I love these cards. I could use some of my metallic Momenta inks for this, but I’m now so interested in that wax. So, I’m going to find out what’s in it.
