it's the most wonderful time... of the year! I love Christmas. Do you? I actually love Thanksgiving best of all, because to me it includes all the best parts of the event without the stressful parts. But Christmas is a close second, especially in years where I get an advanced start on the season.
Back today with a couple more cards using the new Prince of Peace stamp from the recently released 2013 Holiday Collection of singles. At only $6.95, Prince of Peace is a gorgeously economical option for your Christmas cards this year. Click here to view them all!
Hard to beat blue and silver for Christmas cards, is it not? Especially when the blue is our gorgeous Island Indigo color, and paired with stunning patterns from the Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Papers. As you can see, this stamp coordinates perfectly with the new Deco Labels Collection Framelits for the Sizzix Big Shot. I added a lot of Christmas bling by using the new silver foil cardstock for mat mat piece, adding two Basic Rhinestones to the frame, and using a small strip of Silver Glimmer paper in with my pennants.
This was such an easy card to assemble. It would be a fantastic one to mass produce! Be sure to contact me if you'd like to order any of the supplies to make your own at home, and I'd be happy to set you up.
Here's another version that I liked as well, using Island Indigo chevron ribbon and the Mosaic Madness Big Shot embossing folder. One nice thing about doing the ribbon this way is that it is flat, with no bulky knot to cause the P.O. to get themselves in a twist about!

Wasn't going to order any of those Lyssa, but now I think this is a must. My customers love shiney and this will wow them for sure. Thanks for the enabling.

I love the blue & silver far more than the red & gold...always have. I'm just starting to look for Christmas card ideas. I do love this one! Placing an order soon...but it just keeps growing and growing and growing. Shaking my head...

Sooo pretty! I love how you kept the cards simple, letting the words on the stamp stay the focal point. Thanks for sharing.

These cards are stunning! I have a quick question for you...did you emboss the stamped image with silver embossing powder or stamp it with the silver Encore ink pad from the Holiday Catalog? I am planning to mass produce a version of these cards for my Christmas cards this year & would love any input you could give me. Thanks!

It's heat embossed, Robin, but if you have a gazillion to make, you could definitely use the silver Encore pad.
