Simon Says Stamp | Sending Holiday Joy Christmas Greeting Card

Hello, friends! My Make Merry package from Simon Says Stamp arrived a few days ago and I immediately pulled the new goodies out and started to play. My favorite stamp set from the Make Merry release is definitely the Holiday Sparkle Greetings set. I adore the font used for these messages, the size of the sentiments, and the overall look and feel of this set. It is definitely a must-have in my craft room.

CARD DETAILS

Inspired by a recent card I shared (see it HERE), I wanted to create another background using the Old Letter stamp from Simon Says Stamp. I paired it with a slightly more modern background, the Leaves and Berries background from last year (see more project ideas, and video tutorials, using this stamp HERE and HERE).

Follow these instructions step by step to re-create this card:

This is a rather flat, easy to mail card. The only dimensional layer here is the red one, adhered with foam adhesive onto vellum. If you’d rather this card was completely flat you can omit using foam adhesive and replace it with regular tape.

White pen highlights add additional detail to this background. I used a 0.5 pen for the leaves and a 0.8 pen for the berries. The Nuvo drops in Morning Dew add dimensional detail to the card, it is hard to see but creates a nice tactile feeling.

That’s all from me for today. I’m off to play with my craft supplies and encourage you to do the same. Have fun stamping!
