Pretty cards with Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper

Stampin' Up Whimsy & Wonder card ideas

We are well into October so no apology needed for Christmas cards now. I have been creating with Stampin’ Up!'s Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper for my monthly Crafty Friday class.

As these events are still partially on Zoom (I offer limited in-person places with the rest working remotely), we are sticking with the challenges of cutting out images from Designer Series Paper. Fortunately this Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper has some perfect designs for doing this, so I was able to offer the ladies a choice of two cards to make with their kit.

Version one really taps into the pink theme of the Whimsy & Wonder Suite, with a snowflake background covering the entire front of the card. The main focal point is a stack of presents, all cut out of the Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper and overlaid onto one of the Wonderful Snowflakes.

These snowflake elements are excellent, especially if you don’t have a die-cutting machine or simply want to save time when making your Christmas cards. The beautiful iridescent snowflakes come pre-cut, ready to be popped out of their backing paper. I attached them to the project using a single Glue Dot in the centre.

I’ve mounted the presents onto a panel cut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, which has a hint of Polished Pink peeping out behind it, as well as a hint of Be Dazzling Speciality Paper which I had left over from Sale-a-Bration.

For the alternative version, I used some strips of Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper to create a panel mounted onto some Mint Macaron cardstock. Then the basic design is roughly the same, with a Christmas tree instead of a stack of presents.

As I seem to have found myself short of greetings, both of these come from the new Christmas Whimsy Card Kit, which is excellent value, a great introduction to cardmaking and also ideal for seasoned crafters who want a relaxed and productive session. What these kits are also excellent for is building up your greeting stamps collection – these are both really useful sentiments which appeal to our understated British tastes and a nice neat size, too.
