Clean and simple Christmas cards

Hello and happy Saturday! Today I´m sharing yet another set of Christmas cards, this time in clean & simple style. I these might just be some of my very faves from this years „production“.

Such easy cards to make, actually, as I had this gorgeous Tonic Studios golden embossed paper on my desk. It is perfect for the holiday season. And as addition to the paper I added s white Elizabeth Craft Designs snowlake (a die cut die set by them) on top. After that I just stamped a Christmas sentiment in Baked Brown Sugar tone and fussy cut the banner.

One card has no additional decor and the other one has a yellow resin star in the middle. I love how these look! So elegant and simple at the same time. Note to self, I need to get more this type of papers from Tonic UK ;-).

Wishing you a great Saturday!! Hope your day is lovely whatever you a doing! xxx, Sanna

Christmas cards in pastel tones

Hello and happy Friday lovelies!!! Today´s post is again about Christmas cards. No surprise there, right? Well, I make plenty every year, so I will share those mostly during December every year, so hope you can still handle a few more Christmas card related posts. Not long now anyways, as Christmas is soon here.

These cards are again done using the absolutely adorable Christmas paper collection by Mintay Papers. It´s a collection from last year, but I have still papers left, so I´m using them all up. And I love how they look! So, so, so pretty!!

I´ve added some brown Distress Ink around the edges to the card on the left. It creates such a nice vintage look to the papers! on the right card, there is some Nuvo Key Lime clear drops on the lights. It adds a nice dimension. Other than that, the sentiment is stamped with Elizabeth Craft Designs Winter Sentiments. Some Nuvo glitter drops here and there and that is basically it.

I hope you like today´s card share and I hope to have inspired you today. Happy crafting,

Stenciled easy to do Xmas cards

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I´m sharing a set of easy to do Christmas cards you just need a few minutes for.

Just grab a piece of leftover paper, some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse a stencil and a blending brush of some kind. Then apply the mousse with the brush thru the stencil onto the leftover piece of paper. Let dry.

Now outline the pattern with a white gel pen for a fun detail and the adhere the paper onto a card base. Add either a stamped sentiment, some embellishments like the Rudolf on my card, some ribbon and/or fussy cut Christmas themed decor. That´s it! Really fast and easy. And the mousse also adds a really nice shine to the card, when it´s tilted (see above photo).

And these too are not too thick to be put into an envelope and mailed to a loved one.

Wishing you a great Thursday!!! xxx, Sanna

Christmas card set

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m again stopping by to share a set of Christmas cards, created using the gorgeous Sweetest Christmas collection papers by Mintay Papers. I love this collection! Here is what I made this time:

I did some fussy cutting for these cards too, by the way. And since the papers are so very sweet on their own, I didn´need to (and also didn´t want to) add much. Just some Nuvo Drops and stamped sentiments, that´s it!

I don´t know if you can see it, but there are some key lime clear drops here and there on the green parts to add dimension and texture. And on the white areas I´ve added some snow mimicing details with white glitter drops. Also some pink glitter drops were added very randomly for additional sparkle onto the poinsettia leaves.

I also added some brown Distress Ink around the edges of one card, it immediately gave the card a more vintagey look. Love that effect on this paper! And the cards still are very flat so sending them on their way will not be too expensive. Dimensional cards tend to be expensive when mailing them and also rather easy get damaged on the way. No such problems with these ones 🙂 !

Wishing you a great start into your week! We are still on lockdown here in Austria. How are you holding up at your end, lovelies? Some days I´m ok with everything and other days, well, let´s just say, are not that great. Hope everything is ok at your end, peeps!!!

Take care,

Joy to the world

Hello everyone and happy Monday! Today I´m again filling my stash busting goals with this card! I´ve got a whole sheet of snowflake stickers used on this one. Yay!!

For the background I used my snowflake stencil that had some residue ink on it, so I misted it and pressed the ink onto a piece of white paper. You can barely recognize the pattern here and there, but I still really like the subtle look. After adding the STAMPlorations clear sticker sentiment and the super old snowflake stickers from my stash (yay to stash busting again!), the card turned out pretty nice.

That´s all for today! How are you getting along with Christmas cards this year? I have a few made, but I think they will not be enough, so I need to make a few more still.

Hoping your day is lovely!!! We are again on lockdown light in Austria and it´s starting to get to me. I miss my people! I´ve been really good the whole time so far since March, keeping the circles very small and all, but I miss seeing friends and loved ones. And who knows how long this will go on!! I think the winter time makes it even harder. Going to be along wait until spring arrives and we can at least enjoy our garden again, if nothing else.

Hoping everything is good at your end during this crazy time. Take care and stay safe!
