Today's card features a traditional Christmas ornament hung from the tree but with a modern twist. I love how the Decorated with Happiness stamp set by Stampin' Up! features two step stamping with fun, yet traditional, images. Create your own Christmas scenes quickly and easily. Pair the Decorated with Happiness stamp set with the coordinating Decorated Pine dies for even more ornament possibilities.

This layout has been a favourite lately, you will notice several cards with the same measurement. See another Christmas card HERE featuring the Regal Reindeer stamp set. I created a birthday card for a plant loving friend HERE using the same layout.

This card features the Painted Christmas 12x12 Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! The colours are beautiful and the patterns are amazing! I used the Pear Pizzazz green for the card base along with some Real Red for the ornaments and Garden Green for the tree branches. Here are the three main supplies used for the Christmas card.
You could swap out the design of the patterned paper to create multiple variations of this card. Similarly, choose a different card base that matches the Painted Christmas 12x12 designer series paper for to create lots of different cards.
Check back soon for more cards using a blue snowflake theme and the same card design!
