Christmas Made Simple


Today I am sharing something a little different with you.  I am a huge fan of patterned paper and my designs often feature bold prints but today I wanted to share some simple Christmas cards made with a few basic colours.

Christmas can be a busy time and with so many cards to send we sometimes need a few quick and simple ideas.  This of course is where die cutting comes into its own as you can batch make lots of cards easily but still with a very professional finish.

These cards have been made with simple colours that co-ordinate beautifully.  The Kraft card gives a modern look but added to the red and white keeps a traditional element too.

The first card is made using the Sizzix Bigz Die - Loving Bear By craft Asylum.  He is such a cute little guy and can be used on any winter projects.   The heart border from the Sizzix Thinlits Die Set - Decorative Trim #2 By Craft Asylum adds some colour to the design.  The sentiment is small but fits perfectly in with this design.  That has been created using the Sizzix thinlits Die set - Warm winter Wishes By Craft asylum.

The second card features the Sizzix Bigz Die - Wonderland Bird By Craft Asylum.  Such a great die to use for any occasion.  I love him cute out of Kraft card and with the small sentiment cut from the Sizzix Thinlits Die Set - Warm Winter Wishes in Black means the sentiment although small really stands out.

Finally the Sizzix Bigz Stags Head By Craft Asylum has been used to create a modern card.  With some simple matting and layering it adds a bold finish to the card.  The sentiment has again been cut from the Sizzix Thinlits Die set - Warm Winter Wishes By Craft Asylum.  This die is great as you can use the actual letters or the negative which I have done here.

I hope these give you a little inspiration for your Christmas makes this year.  You could even create tags and wrapping to match!

I will catch up with you all next week.
