Bonus Video: Paperless Post Inspired Christmas Cards




Hello! Bonus video and projects this week, woo hoo!  Paperless Post reached out asking me to browse their gallery and show their fans a reinterpretation of "Christmas in Summer".  I was happy to oblige, thanks for inquiring about guest designing, what an honor! Paperless Post is a site where you can purchase beautiful, custom greeting cards and invitations to send, snail mail OR electronically. They really know how to step up the style on an e-vite! It is also a fantastic resource for us cardmakers to supplement our cardmaking and get inspiration for handmade and handstamped designs!  Just sayin'!


In today's video,  I share two clean and simple Christmas cards, inspired by two Paperless Post designs I found, using my recently released bestsellers Gifts from the Sea and Festive Frame, now available in clear! You can finish BOTH these holiday cards in less than 10 minutes, easy peasy! Elegant and easy to mass produce. The sand dollar design is so perfect for those of you who have a summertime Christmas in your part of the world!(The starfish would be adorable, too!) Please enjoy this video and browsing Paperless Post's gallery of Christmas cards! Sure to inspire you!

Here are the cards that caught my eye and immediately brought these two stamp sets of mine to mind*:


My card with Festive Frame 
(No, this design isn't summery, but I like it!):

Really perfect match, I thought!



My card with Gifts from the Sea (bringin' the summer, big time!)



 Here is the supply list for both cards:

Oh what awesome cards. I'm always looking for quick and easy Christmas cards. I just got Gifts from the Sea in clear (YAY Clear!)and the sand dollar is my favorite, so I will definitely be doing that one. I got Festive Frame last year and just used it for a few cards, so I'll be using that again this year. Love that set and with my MISTI it's super easy to stamp. Thanks for the amazing inspiration. The release is tomorrow night, and now I'm already drooling to see what your Christmas set is going to be.
