Serene Holiday Cards By Laurie Schmidlin



Hi there!  It’s hard to believe that November is almost over!  I try my best to have all of my Holiday cards finished by the first week of December.  I like the idea of mass producing cards but usually end up with four or five designs to keep things interesting.  🙂


Today, I’m sharing one of those card designs with you.  The great thing about this card is that it is easy to personalize them by just switching up the accent color!



When I first saw the Simple Church die I thought of the couple of Christmas holidays that we spent in Europe with our extended family.  I wanted to create a card to send to send to them that embodied the peaceful holidays that we spent together.



I started by die cutting three layers (two white and one metallic) using the Shimmer Snowflake Frame Layer die set.  I alternated between a metallic gold and metallic silver accent color.  This design would also work well with other colors, such as red or blue.



I then die cut the church using mostly white cardstock with just a few metallic accents.  This die set comes wired together and can easily be separated if you wish.  I found it handy to keep them together, but that is just a personal preference.



I purposefully did not add a sentiment to the outside of my card.  I just really liked the simplicity of the mostly white design and thought that the sentiment could easily be added to the inside.



My favorite thing about this particular die set is the incredible details!  There are separate cut lines for the window outlines so that you can add an accent color if you wish.  I also really love the detail on the roof pieces!



I’m so glad that you joined me here today!
