Wonderful Life Christmas Card Inspiration

I was so excited when I saw that Stampin’ Up created a stamp with my favorite quote from little Zuzu, “Every time a bell rings an angel gets it’s wings!”. It was really fun designing my Wonderful Life Christmas card around this special sentiment for SUO Challenge #264.

The theme is CHRISTMAS again. Make sure to check out all the design team member submissions and enter your card too. Here is my slimline style Wonderful Life Christmas Card for the current challenge.

Wonderful Life Christmas Card

My family always watched “It’s a Wonderful Life” at Christmas time. It was one of many holiday traditions that my childhood family enjoyed together. I still watch the movie while wrapping gifts every year.

What is your favorite Christmas movie?

Paper Players Challenge

This card was also entered in Paper Players Challenge #520: “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!”.

Create unique Christmas cards, tags and more with the Christmas Means More Stamp Set.

The set includes Christmas movie quotes that will make hearts smile and rejoice. Can you name the holiday movies that the quotes come from in the comments?

The beautiful fonts in this set will make your cards extra special. For my Wonderful Life Christmas Card, I chose to emboss the sentiment in silver embossing powder and cut around it with paper snips.

Peony Garden Designer Series Paper

Stampin Up Peony Garden Designer Series Paper

The Peony Garden Designer Series paper has images of peonies from bud to bloom, as well as all-occasion designs in subtle colors. The colors and designs are beautiful as they are, or you can infuse them with color using Stampin’ Blends.

For my card, I used the marble paper as the background and the gray granite print for the frame. This paper adds a air of sophistication to holiday cards even though it looks like it is intended for wedding cards. I love to use my products in unintended ways!

This paper crafting staple is great scrapbook paper, card making paper, and more!
