Traditional Red & Green Holiday Cards using Everyday Tools

Happy Friday!  Today I am back to share a trio of holiday cards created with classic red, green & white colors while making use of everyday tools that aren't specific to Christmas.  :)

Up first, I have a little card which uses an older Lifestyle Crafts embossing folder for the background. I paired that with some fun little bows which I die-cut from Doodlebug's Home For The Holidays papers from last year.  For my sentiment I used Papertrey Ink's City Scene Christmas Sentiments Stamp Set.

My next card was created on my Silhouette using THIS birthday Present cutting file by Miss Kate's Cuttables paired with some fun basic prints by MAMBI.  I love when I can use a shape for multiple occasions!  :)

My last card uses an older set called Dainty Doilies by Waltzing Mouse Stamps that I was just dying to finally ink up.  This British company has quite a few cool sets that compliment Spellbinder dies and I love that they offer free shipping to the US with a large order (something great to go together with friends on if you don't want to spend that much on your own).  :)

To create my card, I stamped the doilies with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Zing embossing powder in Rouge, Leaf & Cricket colors.  Once again my sentiment was from that same Papertrey Ink's City Scene Christmas Sentiments Stamp Set.  :)

Thanks so much for hanging with me today.  I will be back soon with lots of Christmas projects to share throughout this month.  :)

To create these cards I used the following supplies (available at


  1. These are truly magnificent Christmas cards :) the gift box is so cool

  2. These cards are gorgeous! I love that last one so much, those doilies really pop right off that background in those gorgeous reds and greens! I adore your work my friend!!! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
