Red & White Snowflake & Holiday Home Christmas cards

Hello there!  How's was your weekend? Did you get some items crossed off your holiday "to do" list?  Today I'm popping in with a couple of simple Christmas cards using only red and white cardstock (and of course some of my favorite dies).  I am always a sucker for simple red and white cards.  There's just something about them...

Up first I have a card using Simon Says Stamp Cold Hands Warm Heart Village dies
 with their Peace On Earth stamps and Falling Snow Stencil.  For my hillsides I also used the hillside border dies by Lawn Fawn.  This was my first attempt with Ranger Texture paste for the snowy background.  It's a bit difficult to see, but I love the way it looks in person!  I finished off my card by heat embossing my sentiment in red.  :)

My second card uses Lawn Fawn's Stitched Snowflake dies with a tag die by Impression Obsession.  I also embossed my background using a snowflake embossing folder by Darice.  I finished off my card with some stickles glitter glue (rather than rhinestones) to keep it a bit flatter for mailing.

This last design would be pretty easy to recreate for mass producing.  Are any of you designing your own Christmas cards this year?   I would love to see what you're working on.  You can share with me on my facebook page HERE:)

Interested in the other products I used to create my projects today?  To make supplies easier for you to find, I have listed them below (affiliate links included). 

Supplies Used (available at Simon Says Stamp)


  1. Great cards Mendi! Love the red/white combo look! Its fresh, clean and crisp... and how did you enjoy working with the texture paste? I love that stuff! I use it often myself when I work on my mixed media projects or art journal. :)

  2. What sweet layouts! Love how colorful and bright they are!
