Saturday Blog Hop – Traditional Christmas Colors


Nothing says Christmas like traditions!  One of those traditions are colors of Red and Green!  At Stampin’ Up! we have a variety of reds and greens to choose from!  For this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop, we will focus on those traditional colors!


Here’s what I came up with featuring those colors.  It has a lot of fun products on it!



  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Cherry Cobbler, folded in half.
  • The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White was embossed with the Holly Embossing Folder.
  • Along the bottom of the Whisper White is a 1-1/4 x 5-1/4 strip of Warmth & Cheer DSP.  A 1/4 x 5-1/4 strip of Cherry Cobbler hides the seam.
  • MERRY was cut from Garden Green cardstock with the Large Letter Framelits and spaced across the front.
  • The Santa hat was punched with the Jolly Hat Builder Punch from Cherry Cobbler cardstock and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, then added with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the top of the E.
  • The holly was stamped with Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler Inks…stamped off for the solid image inside and full-strength for the ouline images.  They were punched with the Holly Berry Builder Punch and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I LOVE this! I had been thinking I’d use NOEL like this, not even imagining that MERRY would work. Love the colors, too!
