Easy Christmas Card to make!
As I was mentioning before I want to share with you an easy Christmas card you can make to get you started for the holidays.. I know we are still in July and you might be thinking that there are still several months to get ready, but believe me, Christmas will be here before you know it! So let’s make a few cards each month to not stress in December.. what do you think?
For this card I use the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley from Stampin’ Up! which it’s a great bundle of products that include the patterned paper, the stamp set, the die set, and embellishments! Pretty much everything you need except for cardstock and inkpads!
I love using coordinating products like this Medley because it is so much easier to come up with card ideas! Specially cause you focus on the products you have on hand and get going.. you get less overwhelmed! seriously try it out and let me know how it goes.. Below you can see the card that I made with this set of products..
The Color Combination
As usual I followed the color combination from the designer series paper (DSP) a.k.a. patterned paper on this medley. If you ever are struggling finding color combinations, just look at any patterned paper you like and select a few colors from it! it really is that simple 😉
