Handmade Christmas Greeting Card Idea with Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Season Stamp Set
Are you like me and love Christmas? Do you get excited when it is once again time to make handmade Christmas cards? And homemade Christmas gifts?
Godby With Us Stamper Molly Hinken is as crazy for Christmas as I am. Doesn't it make you feel better when you find others that are as over-the-top crazy for something you love too? It makes me feel a bit more normal. As much as that is possible. :-)
Not only do Molly and I love Christmas, we tend to have the same taste in stamp sets. Upon first sight, we both had chosen Beautiful Season for our Christmas cards. The Beautiful Season card shown here was tossed aside for another card idea Molly had.
Can you believe this is a toss-away? I just love it. When Molly suggested the Rich Razzleberry card stock on Chocolate Chip card stock, honestly I thought it would just pretty much blend in. Well, was I ever wrong (painful to admit but true). It lets you have the Rich Razzleberry to pull the color of the berries without it dominating the card with its rich color.
Molly wondered what to do at the bottom of the card for balance. Since the Rich Razzleberry card stock looked so nice against the Chocolate Chip card stock, I thought the Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon might look equally as nice.
Pretty, huh? Against the Chocolate Chip card stock, the Rich Razzleberry ribbon doesn't look bright.
And, feel free to use Molly's design. She isn't.
