Welcome to week twelve of the Heart Of Christmas Blog Hop!
This week I’m sharing three cards that are perfect for a beginner cardmaker to make as they require no stamping or die cutting.
All I’ve used is a pack of the Santa Express Memories & More Card Pack, card bases from Memories & More Card Packs and a few embellishments.
The Santa Express Memories & More Card Pack includes:
54 double-sided, printed cards
2 sheets of stickers
4 acetate overlays
2 laser-cut sheets of words and embellishments
I love the colour combinations and the designs of the Memories & More cards in this pack.
For card one I’ve used this graphic Christmas Tree design and a Christmas sentiment cut from another one of the Memories & More cards. Clear Elegant Faceted Gems embellish the tops of some of the trees.
My “Joy” card uses one of the stickers from the pack, an Evening Evergreen Memories & More card, a Wonderful Snowflake and a pink Elegant Faceted Gem.
Card three also uses another one of the stickers from the pack – Happy Holidays –a Petal Pink Memories & More card and another Wonderful Snowflake with a Petal Pink Elegant Faceted Gem in it’s centre and clear Elegant Faceted Gems on the sentiment.
Wonderful Snowflakes are one of my favourite Christmas embellishments as they instantly add an elegant touch to any Christmas card.
Quick and easy but oh so effective – Memories & More cards and notecards and envelopes are great to have in your stash when you really don’t have the time or the inclination for stamping and die cutting.

I was short of time to create this week so I needed to make some very simple cards that required no stamping, punching, die cutting or embossing …the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Card Pack and matching card bases and envelopes came to my rescue!
Memories & More Card Packs are so versatile – they can be used for both scrapbooking and card making. Here’s what you get in the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Card Pack.
I’ve only used Memories & More cards that feature Bumblebee for my cards tonight, but the patterns on the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Pack include all of the lovely 2020-2022 In Colors. They also co-ordinate with and have many of the same patterns as the Flowers for Every Season 6×6 DSP.
These first four floral cards each have a different sentiment which is cut from one of the small Memories & More cards and simply mounted onto a strip of Whisper White card stock. Each of the small Memories & More cards and layered onto a piece of Bumblebee card stock and adhered to a small Memories & More card.
I also made three cards using the larger Memories & More cards with some co-ordinating elements.
My sunflower card uses stickers from the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Pack. I love the ombre effect in the “celebrate” sticker and how beautifully the floral cluster stickers co-ordinate with the Memories & More base card.
My second card features a bow of the Bumblebee 2020-2022 In Color Ribbon attached to one of the new gold hoop embellishments. I mounted the Memories & More card onto some Just Jade card stock.
My base card is the Bumblebee card from the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Cards and Envelopes.
The final card simply needed a bow with a Bumblebee enamel dot. I could have used any of the 2020-2022 In Color ribbons but this sweet bow sticker from the Memories & More pack provided a quick and easy way to finish off the card.
The Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Pack and Memories & More Cards and Envelopes are just so beautiful. I love how they make no-stamping and no-fuss card making a breeze…in no time at all.
