Stampin' Up! Peace and Joy Bundle Christmas Card

I am participating in a Challenge Blog for the first time ever called Paper Players. I'm so excited to share this card on their blog! This week's theme is "Clean and Simple," which means there should be a lot of "white space."

I absolutely love playing with the Peace and Joy bundle, so I was happy to participate in this challenge using this bundle!

I love this color combination... instead of red, I chose to use Rococo Rose! I used the Stampin' Write Marker to "color" the image instead of the ink pad, which is why it has that more rustic-y look. Measurements for this card are below!


  • Pear Pizzazz Cardstock: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (score on long side at 4 1/4")
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 5" x 3 3/4"; scraps for die cuts and cutting out smaller sentiments

Yep... that's all of the measurements! This was a very simple (but stunning) card!

I hope you feel inspired to join in this Clean and Simple challenge, too. I think we all get so caught up in the hustle-and-bustle of this time of year, that it's been nice to create something a bit more simple!

I've included a full product list below. You can click on any of those photos or the "add to cart" button to be taken to my online store, or you can click on the image below.
