One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper prints create fast Holiday cards


  • Stampin' Up! One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper
  • Join us 24 August for Paper Pumpkin Procrastinators Meetup
  • With Love & Gratitude September 2023 Paper Pumpkin Kit is specially-designed by Shelli 
I'm back with another holiday card using One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper.  I'm using one of the prints from the One Horse Open Sleigh Designers Series Paper  that set the mood for this card.   My color combinations for today's card is Pool Party, Lost Lagoon, Basic White and Copper Clay.   I matted the image from the One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper with Copper Clay and Basic White Cardstock, and added it to a Pool Party Base card.  I found a sheer 3/8" Pool Party ribbon among my ribbon stash that wouldn't obscure much of my image.  I used a sentiment from the Merriest Trees Stamp set and stamped it on a Basic White label using Lost Lagoon ink .  Finally, I used some of the soft green pearls from the Festive Pearls pack to create a little bling for my card.    If you're looking for this designer series paper, you'll find it under the category of Online Exclusives on the website.  Its not in the catalog. This early Holiday Designer Series Paper makes it easy to get started on your  Holiday cards now while we're indoors trying to beat the heat!.   You'll find an entire suite of products in the One Horse Open Sleigh Suite, including the One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper, on the Stampin' Up! website.   

Holiday Greeting Card using Stampin' Up! One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper

The basecard for this card is Pool Party Cardstock.  Then, I cut mattes out of Basic White Cardstock and another thin matte out of Copper Clay, which is prominent in the A frame house in the paper.  Then I trimmed one of the 6' X 6" prints from the One Horse Open Sleigh 6" X 6" Designer Series Paper to use as the main image on this card.

I used a sentiment from the Merriest Trees Stamp Set, which will be available from 6 September from the September-December 2023 Mini Catalog.  I stamped the sentiment in Lost Lagoon ink on label I die cut using the retired Stitched Rectangle Dies, but you could cut a plain Basic White label to the size you want.

To finish my card, I added a bow of 3/8" Sheer Pool Party Satin Ribbon from my retired stash, and a few soft green pearls from the Festive Pearls Pack.
