Non-Traditional Color Combo Holiday Card

Last week I shared one of the designs I created for my annual Holiday Stamp-a-Stack, you can see that card here. Every year I like to include a card with non-traditional colors and this one is one of my favorites. Not only are the colors great but it’s a pretty quick card to make too. So grab your Polished Pink and Coastal Cabana and let’s get started.


The real star of this card is the embossing folder from Merries Moments. The embossing folder can be used alone or together – at the same time – with the unique die included in the hybrid bundle. It’s a new concept created by Stampin’ UP! that I’m sure we will see more and more of.
