I know it is a bit early to be showing Christmas Card ideas, but if you have a large list of family and friends, you'll want ideas to get you started on your handmade cards early.  I'm showing an idea for using the Frosted Gingerbread Stamp Set today to create a more traditional card vs. the fun Frosted Gingerbread card I've shown previously.  I've used a variety of new products including Brushed Metallic Cardstock, Gold Shimmer Ribbon, and the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder  And don't forget, until 30 September, for each $50 or $100 order you place (less tax and shipping), you'll earn FREE Sale-A-Bration selections.

Handmade Christmas Card with a Christmas Tree ornament and a Happy Holidays sentiment

The basecard for this card is Thick Basic White.  Then a layer of Night of Navy.  And then a layer of Basic White dry embossed with the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder.  Then a wide banner of Night of Navy was added to create the image layer.

I then die cut a  the ornament using the Gingerbread Dies.  I cut the solid base out of Brushed Metallic Cardstock, and then I cut the detailed part of the ornament out of Night of Navy.  I used another die from the Gingerbread Dies to die cut the Brushed Ornament image running across the width of the card.  I added a sentiment from the Frosted Gingerbread stamp set.  I stamped it in Versamark on the Night of Navy layer, covered it using White Emboss Powder from the Basics Stampin' Emboss Powders set, and set the powder with my heat tool.  I finished the card by adding a bow from the Gold 1/4" Shimmer Ribbon.

I made a large collection of these cards for a swap with other Demonstrators, and enjoyed creating a more traditional look with this set.  With the recent launch of the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog, you'll want to place an order early so you have plenty of time to work on Fall and Holiday projects that your friends and family will love.  Additionally, we're all aware of the ongoing tie up of ships in ports around the world.  To avoid any out-of-stocks of new Mini catalog merchandise, I'm recommending customers order from these catalogs as early as possible to avoid delays.
