Inspired by the Traditions of St. Nick Designer Series Paper and the September-December, 2023 Mini Catalog, this card came together quite quickly. When I saw the Wild Wheat and Mossy Meadow damask pattern in the DSP pack, I knew it would be a good match for the ornament die cut from the Handcrafted Elements Dies.

And, what do you think of the bold, contemporary sentiment font? The sentiment image from the Joy To You stamp set creates a trendy, eclectic design when paired with this Designer Series Paper pattern.

This simple and easy card is fun to put together. By the way, there are Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Copper Clay, and Pebbled Path damask patterns in the Traditions of St. Nick DSP. You can create this design in your favorite color combination.

So, let’s make a card!

  • Cut a 3 3/4″ x 5″ Very Vanilla cardstock layer for the inside of the card.

It’s always fun to add a little something to the inside of your card. I cut a 1/4″ x 3 /4″ Wild Wheat cardstock strip to add to the inside of this card.

The “joyful” sentiment on the inside is from the Joy to You stamp set, stamped with Wild Wheat ink.

You may remember a while back when Stampin’ Up! had the envelope liner dies in the inventory. I haven’t used them in a while, but I thought they would be perfect with this card design.

So, cut some layers, add an elegant ornament, a gold bow and gem, and spread some joy for the holidays.

… the only limitation is your imagination!
