Do you even find a stamping supply laying on your desk and it suddenly inspires you to create a card? That's what happened to me with the projects in this post.
I have been trying to reorganize my craft room. I have lots of retired stamping supplies laying around. Instead of just saying, "Oh this is old. Let me just shove this away in a corner", I have decided to pair the old with the new.
The old supply I am using is the beautiful Something Borrowed embellishments. These lovely silver tone and rhinestone embellishments have been sitting on my desk forever. They were definitely a case of a product being too pretty to use. I know that sounds ridiculous, but it's true! I could not bring myself to use them because I thought that they were just too pretty. Well now, I need to get them used up.
These embellishments were originally geared towards wedding projects, but I think that they are fabulous when paired with snowflakes!
Flurry of Wishes is my favorite snowflake stamp set! (And with a coordinating punch, it is super easy to make great projects.) To me, snowflakes sparkle just like these embellishments.
For some more stash busting, I made a matching envelope from some retired paper. That's a great way to use up some DSP if you have a bit piled up and you want to make room for the latest and greatest paper. Just use it to create beautiful envelopes.
I couldn't resist making another card with a different color scheme. Can you tell that I love non-traditional colors for Christmas cards??? Love it!
Yeah, I made another matching envie with my envelope punch board.
Check out these beauties together!
You could make several of these in different colors and bundle them up as a set! What a nice gift to give someone to prepare for the holidays.
