This card is so Merry And Bright, and a Merry And Bright Christmas! is exactly what we need this year isn’t it? The colours are totally inspired by the gorgeous patterned papers – Snowflake Splendor. They are so beautiful! This is just one of the cards that I made at this week’s Coffee and Cards Facebook Live. Did you catch it? I also made another one using the same inspired colours and a nifty tip for using ink with your embossing folders too.

Merry And Bright Christmas!
This Merry And Bright Christmas! card is so easy to make using the Peace & Joy Bundle. start by picking out the colours you are going to use from the papers. These are Balmy Blue and Purple Posy. Stampin’ Up! have already done the colour combo for us so you know they are going to work. Why not make a whole batch ready to send out for Christmas. Each 12 x 12 sheet of paper would make 6 card fronts and each pack of patterned paper has 12 sheets.
Cut the “Bright” outline using the die, from Balmy Blue Glimmer paper. It’s fabulous. So sparkly and it doesn’t shed glitter at all. It is in the July to December catalogue and can be found in my online shop. Use Whisper White card for the “Bright” word. The contrast makes it pop. Pick out a colour to stamp “Merry And “. I’ve used Highland Heather. They kind of remind me of the words you would get from one of the Dymo labelers if you know what I mean. Fun!
What are your favourite Christmas colours for crafting? I do love the traditional reds, greens, silver and golds but I also really love the whites silvers, and frosty muted blues and lilacs too so the Snowflake Splendor papers are right up my street. I hope you like it and are inspired to make some quick and easy cards like this.
