Snow Swirled Wish for Peace

Stampin' Up! Snow Swirled Stamp setI decided to pull up a few Christmas Cards from the past to show you today.  These are cards I’ve made either last year or the year before that I thought you might enjoy seeing.

This is a very simple card made with the Snow Swirled stamp set, Ballet Blue and Stampin' Up! A Wish for PeaceBasic Black cardstock, Basic Black narrow grosgrain ribbon and white embossing powder.

This card uses the same colors and A Wish for Peace stamp set.  The Crayon Resist technique is used on this card which the Technique Club will be Stampin' Up! Sleigh Bells Ring Stamp Setlearning next month!

I just learned today that the Sleigh Bells Ring stamp set used on this card is now retired (not sure how missed that one.)  I love this set so I thought I’d go ahead and show you the card anyway.

As you can see, I like this color combination for Christmas cards!  All of these cards are fairly easy to duplicate.  Hopefully these are an inspiration to you as you make your Christmas cards!  I hope you’ll leave a comment to let me know you stopped by!


  1. Yes – Ballet Blue is my favorite for Christmas cards, decorations, wrapping – everything!
    Blue and silver is so classy.

  2. I don’t know if you can help me,I hope so.I am making Gingerbread cards for Christmas.I am doing embossing also.What i’am trying to do is emboss the saying inside the card.
    It is a tan card and the embossing always comes out the same color as the card even tho i’am using white embossing powder.I would like to hear from you either way.
    I think your cards are beautiful.Thank you Betty

    • Hi Betty,

      White embossing powder always shows up best on dark cardstock. I would suggest if you have any dark colors in your card front you emboss the saying on a piece of that and put it on the inside of the card. Another option might be to emboss in another color.

      I hope that helps you!
