Skipping Stones Simple Snowflakes


Hello there, 

Today, I wanted to share with you a super simple design for your holiday cards using just cardstock, ink and a few gems. 

When I make holiday cards, keeping my design simple is a must, especially if it is something that will be mass  produced.  Through the use of color, even a simple card can pack plenty of visual punch: 


Using snowflakes from  Skipping Stones Victorian Christmas and Sassy Snow, I created this scene of colorful snowflakes on a piece of white cardstock trimmed to 3.75 x 5".  The sentiment is from Victorian Christmas, and I stamped it in black ink.  A few gems and a rounded corner keep the design interesting. I then attached the stamped panel to a A2 cardbase made of red cardstock which provides a strong visual border for the design.  

This card would be very simple and post-office friendly of you are looking for clean and simple designs for your holiday cards.  If flat cards are a must, you could also skip the gems. :o)

That's all for me today.  Thank you so much for stopping by!
