We have been busy preparing for the December/January Issue of Scraps of Color. It is full of wonderful ideas that you will definitely want to take advantage of for Christmas. As a sneak peek, I am sharing a card that I made using some Heartfelt Creations stamp sets and coordinating dies. We are featuring Heartfelt Creations stamps and coordinating dies in the December/ January issue. I enjoy their products so much, because they make creating very easy and fast. During the Holidays, easy and fast is exactly what we need when it’s time to mass produce cards and send out to family and friends.

Wishing You Holiday Card by Karen Jiles. Supplies- Stamps and Dies: Heartfelt Creations; Cardstock: Coredinations; Ink: Copic, Memento; Stickles: Ranger; Ribbon: Essentials.

I used a distressed layer on this card to give it a more unique look. The stickles on the flowers adds that extra sparkle that makes this card even more special. I added a duplicate cardinal and angled him to the side to give the appearance of the cardinals sharing a branch. This also added a 3-dimensional look.

Have you finished your cards for the holidays? What quick and easy tips do you use to complete your holiday cards?

Enjoy the Holidays,

  2. Your card is gorgeous, Karen! Beautiful, vibrant colors! LOVE it!
