Hi, all! Nicole here with a card using the awesome 2013 Holiday card kit. I immediately fell in love with the kit and it has everything you need to create all sorts of cards! I’ve decided to use the Double Sided Chic Tags Cardstock as a main canvas for the card. The snow background is so great and you don’t have to do much to make your card pop.

On top of the Marshmallow card base, I’ve added a strip of Peppermint cardstock and white embossed the snowflake image from the Holiday Borders stamp set in the kit, thought it would go perfectly with the background. From the Holiday Hellos Stamp Set I used two greetings, one small one and one big one, and stamped them on top of the Marshmallow cardstock piece I dressed up with the Peppermint Strip Stencil. I wanted to add a hint of green to the card so using the stencil with the Soft Leaf Hero Arts Shadow Ink was perfect. I also added some finishing touches using the embellishments from the kit.

I encourage everyone to take advantage of this kit and create fun Christmas cards. Having everything coordinated saves you so much time! This is also perfect for beginner card-makers, I recommend starting by choosing the background paper like I did with this card and build the card around it. Your holiday cards will come together very easily. :) Thanks for joining us today! Hope you enjoy the tutorial video!

  1. This card is so appropriate today. We have several feet of snow coming, it’s getting colder. Good day to veg and work on greeting cards.

  2. The brown kraft paper you chose for this card looks great with the other elements of the card. Love both the stamped and die cut snowflakes. Wonderful.
