There are two types of people in this world: those who barely let Halloween pass them by before pulling out the Christmas decorations, and those who keep every sprig of holly tucked away until at least December 1. No matter which type of person you are, you can’t deny that Christmas is the busiest time of year. So get ahead of that Yuletide dash by preparing your holiday cards now!
Why? Well, if you get started now, you’ll have time to create beautiful and detailed artwork like this:
Isn’t this family postcard adorable? The gold embossing adds such a festive feel, especially when paired with the White Pines paper packet. White Pines also makes a cheery statement on the Christmas tag. Customized gift tags like this are a wonderful way to brighten up your Christmas wrapping! The gold sequins add such a thoughtful detail. Speaking of details…
…there’s that gorgeous gold again! That stylish shimmer really makes the sentiments shine, while also adding a unique texture to the card. For even more texture, try using an embossing folder to create an embossed pattern like you see on the Chocolate cardstock. These details add a touch of class and luxury to your cards, don’t they? Ah, the power of details.
But maybe you are looking for another solution for your Christmas cards, perhaps something you can duplicate quickly and easily. If that’s you, we recommend our Workshops on the Go® White Pines cardmaking kit! This kit comes with all the supplies you need to make 15 cards, plus a guide that gives you step-by-step instructions for how to cut, stamp, assemble, and accessorize the three different Christmas card designs.
If you’re looking for an even quicker Christmas card option, we’ve got just the thing! Say hello to our holiday Cut Above™ card kits: Boughs & Berries and Deck the Halls. The great thing about Cut Above™ is that we’ve done all the designing and cutting for you. All you have to do is the stamping and assembly! You get to create 10 beautiful cards from each pack, and you end up with a beautiful, handmade result with less work! So don’t let Christmas sneak up on you! Let our White Pines paper collection or one of our cardmaking kits help you get ready before the rush. Bring on the holly!
