Hey stampers! Today's sample is a Copper Carols of Christmas card. Even though it is still summer here in Texas, my customers are already asking for Christmas card ideas! The “busy-ness” of the holidays seems to start earlier each year so it's never a bad idea to start thinking of ideas and purchasing supplies.
I absolutely love all our coordinating copper products and I think they add just the right amount of dazzle to this card.
I've included both Copper Trim and Copper Foil in my supply list. Copper trim is used here, but you could easily use Copper Foil if you prefer! Having choices is one of the things I love about Stampin' Up! products. We offer a wide range of colors and style to suit anyone's taste. Feel free to “case” any project I post. If you like, change it up to fit your particular style!
Every year I offer a free one on one Christmas Card consultation service to get your creative juices flowing. You and I will sit down in person for an hour and discuss ideas to come up with the perfect solution for your needs. If you don't live local to me, we can set up a phone call or skype chat. Please do give me a shout. Together we'll design the perfect project!
