(This post is part of my Frosty Festivities 2015 Blog Event – see a list of all the posts HERE)

I’ve got quite a quick post for you today, about these ‘Let The Stickers Be The Stars’ Clean and Simple Christmas Cards:

I decided to use up some Christmas stickers by planning my cards around them and letting them be the stars of the show!

First I found a pile of Christmas stickers, plus some enamel and metallic dots, some 6×6 patterned paper and scraps, and 3 card blanks:

I chose a few of the stickers in different colour tones, and pick a couple of sheets of paper each to match. The left-hand stickers were bright red & green, the middle stickers were pale blue and red, and the right-hand stickers were a more dull, vintage style red and green:

I layered the two patterned papers for each card on top of each other, with a rectangle of white card on top too. All the edges were inked with a gold ink pad. The white rectangle was a slightly different size on each card, depending on how much I wanted the patterns below to be showing:

Then all I had to do was arrange my stickers in a pleasing manner! I even used stickers for the sentiments. A couple of the sentiments were stuck on with foam dots to stop it all looking too flat:

I also added glitter tape to the left-hand card to give the reindeer something to stand on!

  1. Love love love these, Jennifer!! Hard to pick a favorite because they each are so bright, cheery and festive. Love the idea of layering the patterned paper to make a pretty border. The white panel makes things so clean and fresh and ready for the seasonal stickers. Thank you for all the wonderful inspiration!!!
