Card One: A Sweet Holiday Birthday

Picket Fence Studios Sweet Holiday Stamps and Dies

For the first card, I employed the charming Sweet Holiday stamps and dies to create a unique holiday-related birthday card. I stamped the holiday-themed cupcake, adorned with traditional Christmas images, and added detailed coloring to bring it to life. The coordinating dies were used to cut out the cupcake and a stamped birthday sentiment. To create a simple yet striking background, I incorporated the A2 Pierced Blanket Cover Plate on a white background. For a touch of holiday sparkle, green sequins from the Holiday Stockings Sequin Mix were the perfect finishing touch.

In the center of the card, the large Joyeux Noel sentiment from the Another Joyeux Noel stamps and dies takes the spotlight. A few silver and gold sequins from the A Classic Christmas Sequin Mix add a touch of shimmer to the card.

Card number three transports us to a cozy holiday scene featuring a magnificent fireplace created with the Scene Building: Fireplace Die. To add realism, a grate in front of the fireplace was added using the Scene Building Dies: Gate and Fencing Dies. The grandeur of the fireplace mantle is adorned with a heartfelt Merry Christmas sentiment from the Another Joyeux Noel Stamps.

Cards Four and Five: Foil-Accented Holiday Magic

Picket Fence Studios Fabulous Foiling Toner Card Fronts

For cards four and five, I embraced the enchanting world of foiling. Using the new Fabulous Foiling Toner Card Fronts, Fabulous Toner Foils, and Fabulous Toner Foiling Card Stock, I created two unique and glamorous holiday cards.

Picket Fence Studios Snowflake Blizzard Fabulous Foiling Toner Card Fronts

Card four showcases the Snowflake Blizzard Fabulous Foiling Toner Card Fronts, foiled with Turquoise Blue Star Burst Fabulous Toner Foils, creating a radiant effect. Ink blending in shades of turquoise blue adds depth and dimension. A sentiment from the Snowone Else Like You Stamps and Dies completes the look, along with snowflakes from the Santa’s Cookies Sequin Mix Plus.

Picket Fence Studios Seasonal Greetings Fabulous Foiling Toner Card Fronts

For card five, I utilized the Seasonal Greetings Fabulous Foiling Toner Card Fronts, foil-accented with Royal Blue Bird Fabulous Toner Foils. The negative from the foil was perfect to create an enchanting background with the Bright Grunge Fabulous Toner Foiling Card Stock. A blend of snowflakes from the More Winter Snowflake Dies and a sentiment from the Merry Christmas Friends Stamps and Dies brings this holiday masterpiece to life. Adding a touch of ink to the die-cut snowflakes using Rainbow Paper Pouncers and a sprinkling of sequins from the Nostalgic Times Embellishments, this card almost makes me wish for snow.
