The holiday season is a beautiful time of year. But at times it can also be the most anxiety-ridden. Emotions run high with holiday to dos. Today, we are using our paper crafts to help keep your spirits high. Create these cards with us to gift as a reminder to a loved one.
Our Inspiration section of our 2017-2018 Inspiration Book & Catalog includes many uplifting sentiments for hope – including our featured favorite the Through the Storm Stamp Set.
Beautiful color is always good for the soul. Create a colorful background with Liquid Color and the Nature Collage Stencil. Transfer the color onto the cardstock with a dauber gradually blending the Liquid Colors.

Send hugs to a friend who just needs a little love.
First, let’s create the background. Give it a fun texture with Journey Modeling Paste. Mix Banana Cream Re-inker into a bit of your paste to give it color. Then add it to your cardstock panel with the Vintage Screen Stencil as a guide. If you are unfamiliar with the paste, check out our Try Day Friday video with Shannon Smith, FSJ’s Concept Designer, from last week here.
Give your card a beautiful image like blooms. Flower Swirls is one of our favorites. Stamp the Flower Swirls in Clear Pigment Ink on different cardstock colors and then emboss them in Journey White Embossing Powder.
Finally, add your sentiment. We have plenty to choose from of course. However, you can also create your own with the Outline Bet Stamp & Die Set.
