6 x 6 Paper Pad, Christmas, Christmas Cards, Simple Stories

28 Christmas Cards | Simple Stories | Simple Vintage North Pole Collection


Today I’m sharing 28 cards I made using Simple Stories Simple Vintage North Pole Collection. I used the 6 x 8 paper pad, chipboard stickers, ephemera bits and pieces, and the 12 x 12 Basics Kit which includes six papers that match the collection.

I love the vintage theme of this collection. I made a total of 28 cards with this collection. For some of the cards, I was inspired by a card sketch and other designs I came up with on my own.

I brought in a few word dies and stamps for sentiments. I also brought in some circle dies, some card bases, and a few pieces of red cardstock from my stash.

I have a video on my YouTube channel showing my design process of all of the cards. I also listed each card below along with measurements.

Enjoy!
