Simple Stories Very Merry Collection

If you’re a card maker like me, it’s never too early to get started on your holiday cards. There’s so much going around during the holidays that you’ll be glad they’re made and ready to send. With not one, but three new holiday collections at Simple Stories you’re sure to find one that speaks to you!

Today I’m playing with the Very Merry Collection! It’s a traditional mix of reds and greens with a fresh look. You’ll find candy stripes and plaids, and polka dots that look like snowfall!

You’ll also find a sleigh-full of accessories in this collection! There are chipboard stickers, bits and pieces, and stickers that make your paper crafting a breeze. All the images are printed and die cut ready to work with! 

The flowers on my design are chipboard stickers, they add dimension and texture. Other elements like the December calendar, snowflake, and postcard are from the Bits and Pieces Pack. The sentiments are both stickers (Hey Santa – Combo Sticker / Let Your Heart Be Light 4x6” Sticker pack).

My second card is fun and whimsical! Who doesn’t love Santa? When my kids were little they used to call him “Ho Ho”! This is for all of us young at heart. 

I love the vintage Santa reminiscent of images from my childhood – his kind face and rosy cheeks are perfect! 

There are so many different elements to choose from in this collection! I had lots of fun looking through the pieces. I chose pieces that I associate with Santa like the arrow pointing the way to the North Pole, and the Jolly Bingo Card.

Just about every embellishment on this card is from the Bits and Pieces pack. The only exception is Ho Ho.. I mean Santa LOL! – he’s a chipboard sticker.

I know you’re going to love making everything you need for the holidays with this collection.. cards, tags, place cards and so much more! 

The Very Merry Collection is just that! Everything to make spirits bright!

These are so adorable! I always end up disappointed when I order the SS Christmas stuff, it is never as bright and cheerful as your photos portray is much darker colors! But these are really nice cards!
