What kind of card do you give someone who hates Christmas? Sounds like a riddle doesn’t it? This was the most difficult challenge for me in the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge because I figure if someone hates Christmas, why give them a Christmas card?!!
I decided to go with more sombre colours and minimal embellishment for Mr Grumps! The Peace & Joy stamp set was perfect for creating the stamped background in Basic Gray and Misty Moonlight with a pop of Shaded Spruce just to give a hint of the Christmas Spirit (Past, Present and Future).
Some die cut leaves from the Forever Fern bundle – in Gray of course, adds some depth and interest without being festive. The sentiment chosen from Itty Bitty Christmas is neutral, making it suitable to give to anyone who doesn’t celebrate Christmas.
I hope you’re having fun with this challenge and I’m sure you would want to check out Martin Stone’s lovely work (especially on this one – it’s hilarious).

Welcome to Stamping Flair on this Saturday morning. It’s a weekend like no other here in Melbourne, where we are in lock down but us crafters need not fear boredom. We have supplies and unfinished projects to last a lifetime! I hope you are all keeping well and in good spirits. You are in the right place to get you into creative mode.
Today I’m hopping with my friends from the Stamp ‘N Hop team and we are showcasing our favourite bundle. Now this one was a tough choice as there are so many beautiful bundles available in the Annual Catalogue as well as the Mini Holiday Catalogue.
I chose the Forever Fern bundle for it’s versatility to offer quick and simple cards which look really beautiful. This bundle is perfect for the beginner stamper as it offers the capacity to step-up your projects as you become more comfortable with stamping. For the Advanced crafter, the coordinating dies offer you additional leaves and elements to add more pizzazz to your projects.
I added the beautiful Gold Laser cut paper which is part of the Forever Greenery Suite. A poppy from the Painted Poppies stamp set, coloured in Flirty Flamingo, adds a soft contrast to the shades of green on this card. Die cut leaves in Sahara Sand and Soft Sea Foam coordinate with that beautiful Designer Series Paper.
Join me this afternoon on my Facebook Live where I’ll show you how to create this card and give you some fun tips and techniques.
