Use strips of pretty patterned paper to create a background for Christmas greeting. Add a bit of ribbon for texture and layer it all onto a contrasting color before adding it to a card base.
Add some embellishments to the greeting to highlight a word, or leave it plain if worried about mailing. When mailing a card with embellishments, it’s always a good idea to add a protective layer in the envelope. I use a stack of old post cards, one friend uses a sheet of packing material. Also, purchase the special hand cancel stamps from the post office to avoid ruining the beautiful card in the sorting machines.
This greeting is from one of my top pick stamp sets from the 2021 July to December Mini Catalog – The Christmas to Remember stamp set which is part of the Painted Christmas Suite. It contains 9 awesome Christmas greetings. I’ve paired it up with a die from the Painted Labels set from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. The Painted Labels Dies coordinate with the Painted Poppies stamp set but it contains 4 label dies and one border die that will work with just about any other stamp set.
