victorian christmas cards

Have you seen the new Limited edition Holiday card kit by SSS?! This kit is packed with products and I love that it’s in the traditional Christmas color combo. So my style! For today I am using products from the kit to create traditional, Victorian style cards.

Remember the kit is not part of the regular subscription, so even if you are a subscriber you need to order this separately here.

Join us for a fun blog hop to inspire you! You should have arrived here from Heather Hoffman. If you want to start the blog hop from the beginning please visit Simon Says Stamp Blog.

Here are some close – up photos on all the cards that I shared in the above tutorial.

Victorian Santa card

For all 3 of my cards I used cut outs from the Tim Holtz Ephemera Pack CHRISTMAS. I love putting together paper pieces like that and to make a set of cards I kept the techniques and colors similar. I combined the cut outs with papers from the Echo Park CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS Paper Pad.

For this card I created a stunning background using one solid green colored paper from the pad and the POINSETTIA BACKGROUND stamp. I embossed it with Antique gold Embossing powder and got this stunning look!
