A Clean and Simple Christmas – by Holly McMillen

Good Monday morning and WELCOME to a week filled with clean and simple Christmas cards with the thought of mass production in mind.

Each year about this time we like to devote a week to clean and simple cards with the hopes of getting those creative juices flowing. We know many like to mass produce their Christmas cards and keeping it simple for the holidays just makes sense! We begin our week with this classic gold and white beauty from Holly:

This is one of my favorite stamps for Christmas cards from our set called Jesus.

It pretty much says it all with just one stamp.

Holly embossed her stamped image in gold and accented it with a Metallic Velvet ribbon.

I always love embossing and metallics for the holidays – such a simple way to kick your project up a notch.

The gold on white is always so classic and so lovely.

Holly did elevate her main image panel and used a bow, but if one wanted to keep this card flat for mailing it would still look so very lovely without the elevation and a flatter bow – perhaps using gold metallic string.

And take a peek inside. Holly used our gold mirror cardstock to add that golden glitz on the inside, too!

Such a classic beauty!!!


You can find Holly’s post on her blog here.

Jesus by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps

I love this entire set, but that collage sentiment – oh my, so fun to work with!

This set referencing the names of Jesus is suitable for year round use. It’s so much fun for the Christmas season, but most of the sentiments included are not specific to Christmas.

A wonderful set to add to your collection of Scripture stamps.

May Arts 3/8″ Metallic Velvet – gold used today

This is an absolutely wonderful ribbon for holiday projects – sparkly and festive, soft and pliable!

In stock in 10 colors (not all are shown above), by the yard, full spool or handy sampler package.

And although this is super glittery, it does not “shed” glitter – which is a good thing!
