The weather is getting colder and in my little part of the world there was snow in the air this week!!! That means the holidays are just around the corner! And that It’s time to get a jump on your Holiday Cards! Simple Stories has several holiday collections to choose from including this one called Boho Christmas!
Boho Christmas is an eclectic mix of traditional and modern contemporary styles in shades of reds and greens. You’ll find plaids mixed with funky florals and, lots of bold graphic sentiments.
I’m smitten with the sweet Santas, bottlebrush trees, and pom pom garlands that have me smiling big.
I used Journaling Bits and Pieces and the 12” Journaling Elements sheet included in the Collection Kit to create focal points for my designs. The solid die cut pieces break up the pattern paper backgrounds.
There are loads of embellishments available in this collection including chipboard, layered chipboard, printed die cut bits and pieces, stickers, washi, decorative brads, enamel dots and more!
I add baby powder to the back of the sticky images to make them easier to manage. This allows me to play with their placement before committing and adhering them in place with liquid adhesive.
I like adding washi tape over seams where papers meet to add a whimsical touch to my designs. The tape is also a great place to add a sticker strip sentiment to make it stand out.
If your mind is on holiday cards about now, I encourage you to check out the new collections at Simple Stories. I know you’ll love what you see, and I wish you luck choosing only ONE favorite!
