Simon Says Stamp | Handmade Holiday

Hi everyone!

I’m so excited to be sharing a card I made using the new Simon Says Stamp release called “Handmade Holiday”!

Today’s card is one of several cards I made for this release and for all of them, I’m featuring the new 3D Christmas Cookie embossing folder. I just love embossing folders and this one is just adorable with all the little Christmas cookies. I think it makes the perfect background for anything and everything “Christmas”! I’ve used it in different ways for each of the cards I’ll be sharing over the next couple weeks. My hope is to show you how you can get different looks from the same embossing folder just by switching up a few things.

So, let’s get started: for today’s card, I’m sticking to the basics – just the embossing folder and some card stock! That’s it! No ink. No paint. Nothing but embossed card stock for the background. 😊

To complete the card, I’ve adorned it with a few dies, the gorgeous “Joy” sentiment that Simon released last month, and a few pearls.

I absolutely love the simple sophistication of this card and how the Christmas Cookies embossing folder adds the perfect amount of texture – it really is a great way to elevate your background!

I’ll be posting another card using this embossing folder in a few days! For now, I hope you’ll get out your embossing folders and have some fun making backgrounds!

Have a wonderfully creative day, everyone!

I love to make cards and enjoy trying out new techniques and products. My artistic “style” differs almost daily – it just depends on what I’m making, the look I’m going for, who the intended recipient is, and, well, sometimes just the mood I’m in.
