Merry Christmas Card
by Zuzana Obert

Hello and welcome to Poppystamps Blog! Have you started your Christmas cards yet? No? Don't worry it's still time. I have some inspiration for you. A Christmas card with very cute snowman globe! I'm sure it will melt your heart! :0) 

Merry Christmas PS

I stamped and heat embossed  white panel with snowflakes from Poppystamps You Melt My Heart clear stamp set.  Then I inked panel with soft blue ink and adhered on the white card blank. Have you noticed that I used only white cardstock? It worked perfect!

Merry Christmas PS detial

Next I stamped and die cut globe and snowman from coordinating You Melt My Heart die set. I used black ink and Letraset Promarkers to add some colour. Finally I die cut Proper Mery Christmas twice from white cardstock and layered below my snowman globe. Finished with piercing the holes around the edges.

Hope that you found your inspiration how to create very simple and clean Christmas card!

Have a beautiful day! Hugs!

Merry Christmas
by Zuzana Obert

Hello dear Poppystamps friends! Hope that you enjoying our fantastic Blog Blitz with all those beautiful Christmas dies introduced to you each day! How do you create your Christmas cards? I usually starting from sentiment. Poppystamps has really lot of gorgeous sentiments this year. Let me introduce you Propper Merry Christmas Die.

Merry Christmas PS material

And here is my card I created for you:

Merry Christmas PS

I started with stamping Open Studio Dancing Snowflakes on white cardstock. Coloured with Letraset Promarker pens.

Merry Christmas PS detail

Matted the panel with green linen cardstock, embellished with threaded buttons and twine on the top part and adhere on white card blank.

Die cut Merry Christmas from black cardstock, but used as a negative. Negatives are really great, quick and very trendy! I spare all my die cut letters Merry Christmas for another projects. Isn't that fantastic? And finally I die cut Ponsettia Stem from red cardstock and fixed right above my sentiment. Added some red glitter and card is ready to festive!
