Snowflake Wishes Card Samples

Snowflake Wishes Card Samples

Did you ever stop to think where Christmas in July originated? According to a quick Google search, it found its start in 1933 at an all-girls summer camp in Brevard, North Carolina. They hosted a Christmas in July celebration complete with carolers, a Christmas tree, fake snow, a gift exchange and even a visit from Santa. And it’s now morphed in to a month-long celebration with thoughts of escaping the heat!

I’m following suit and celebrating Christmas in July on my blog this month. Today, I feature Stampin’ Up!’s Snowflake Wishes stamp set and So Many Snowflake Dies. Find the stamp set on page 90 of the Annual Catalog and the dies on page 165.

I really like all of the many and varied snowflake dies included with this set. As you can see with my samples, it offers many, many different ways to use both the stamp set and the dies.

The featured card sports non-traditional Christmas colors. I used:

  • Misty Moonlight for the base,
  • Mint Macaron for the next layer (5 1/4 x 4),
  • Polished Pink,
  • Blushing Bridge (embossed with the snowflake design from the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder set),
  • Misty Moonlight for the snowflake and ink colors.

This card uses even more non-traditional colors: Polished Pink. I just love the In Color Vellum to die cut the snowflakes images.

The “windows” in the Picture This Dies offer a fun way to showcase the snowflakes.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the Snowflake Wishes Card Samples for Christmas in July. Be sure to watch the video below to see how the first card is created.

Christmas in July: Tree Angle

Welcome to Christmas in July featuring Stampin’ Up!’s Tree Angle stamp set.

Christmas in July: Tree Angle

Can you believe it’s the end of July? I’m sad my Christmas in July features are coming to an end. I enjoy the thought of preparing for the holidays and cooler days ahead. (Especially here in Arizona where the high is 111 degrees.)

During the first weeks of Christmas in July, I focused on using products readily available in Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. Click back to view the posts and get some holiday inspiration.

Stampin’ Friends: Perfectly Plaid

Welcome to the Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop where I’m featuring Stampin’ Up!’s Perfectly Plaid stamp set for a handmade greeting card and easy gift card holder.

Thanks for joining us on our monthly blog hop. The theme this month is “anything goes.” That fits perfectly with my theme this month. Be sure to visit all of the hops on the blog and leave comments.

Each Thursday this month, I’m featuring a Christmas or holiday themed card using products found in Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.

For this card, I used the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and coordinating Pine Tree Punch. The set and punch carried over from last year’s Holiday Catalog. Now, we can get a jump start on our holiday greeting card making with this awesome and popular duo.

Stampin' Friends: Perfectly Plaid

In addition to the the stamp set and punch, here are some of the Stampin’ Up! products used to create this card:

  • 2020-2022 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (Just Jade)
  • Playful Pets Designer Series Paper
  • Real Red card stock and Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Just Jade Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Red Rhinestones

This is a clean and simple and easy-to-create card. See the end of the post to purchase the products used to create this card.

Perfectly Plaid Gift Coordinating Card Holder

Gift card holders are a popular item for the holidays. I created a coordinating holder using the same products as the card above. To create the holder base, start with a piece of card stock measuring 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. Score at 2 1/2″ and 6 1/2″. Fold the bottom piece up, adhering just the sides of the card stock with Tear and Tape to make a pocket for the gift card. I used small Velcro dots to the flap down. Decorate any way you wish.
