Do you love the Ho Ho Holly Days? It’s that magic time of year when the heart gets sentimental. There’s just no place like home; comfy cozy, and celebrating with family and friends.
This collection features traditional red and green a fresh twist! Pink, lime and aqua give this collection an updated, fun look.
The collection includes all the extras you’ve come to expect from Simple Stories – 12” and 6x8” papers, chipboard, stickers, printed die cut bits and pieces, and loads of embellishments like decorative brads, washi and enamel dots.
My eight cards today are made with the 12x12” collection kit. I really love the Journal Elements sheet included in the kit. They’re perfect foundations for adding layers on your cards. I arranged elements on top to create different scenes and collages.
I like to break up the patterns with solids, and Color Vibe cardstock is always my go to. Color Vibe is textured cardstock with a solid on one side and a dot print on the other. Color Vibe comes in lots of colors so you’ll find the perfect match for EVERY collection. The sheets always make great card bases.
Once my scenes are laid out I love adding embellishments. Decorative brads and enamel dots are like eye candy. Washi is great for adding color and defining layers – I always add washi where one print is layered over another. Sticker sentiments are perfect just about anywhere on your design.
I like to keep similar elements together to create scenes. The card below is a great example – the fireplace, Santa, tree and presents are sized perfectly to be placed together. Dotted paper becomes carpeting and a floral print makes fine wallpaper.
This collection just makes me smile. I love the sweet woodland critters, happy Santas and fun colors! And if I can pass along a smile through the mail then my mission is accomplished!
