Welcome to Team Stamp It’s Holiday Blog Hop! Thanks so much for joining us! For this hop, we feature handmade cards and projects with a holiday and Christmas theme. Be sure to visit all of the blogs on the hop. Leave a comment on each for your chance to win a Forever Friends all-inclusive card kit.

Card-making inspiration comes from many places: other stampers, Pinterest, home decor, paint colors, and retail offerings. My holiday card share today stems from some holiday tableware I spotted at World Market. When I saw the dinner plate, I knew it would make a great card. See my inspiration below.

Making Spirits Bright Christmas Card

For this card, I used the fun tree die from the Reindeer Dies. Find this set of dies on page 166 of Stampin’ Up’s Annual Catalog. I die cut the tree from each of the sheets included in the 2022-2024 In Color 12 x 12 Textured Specialty Paper. The colors include: Parakeet Party, Orchid Oasis, Starry Sky, Tahitian Tide, and Sweet Sorbet. The paper has a bit of shimmer and makes this card so fun and festive.
