Quick and Easy Watermarked Background Holiday Card
Today I’m sharing a quick card design that is easy to recreate but oh so lovely for your holiday cards. It features an oldie but a goodie technique called watermark stamping and I’m using one of my favorite Unity Stamp Company sentiment kits. Time to get going on my cards to get ready for Christmas.
Featured Stamp Set
I just adore this set, I can use it over and over and over again. And I do. I just love those trees, that deer and so many sentiments to choose from.

I love the simple yet classic design of this card. It may be easy, but it creates and impact. It’s perfect for mass production or for when you need that one last minute card you weren’t prepared for.
Here are the steps to recreate this card:
- Start with a standard size A2 card (4.25″ x 5.5″) from white cardstock.
- Trim a piece of red cardstock slightly smaller than the card (4″ x 5.25″). Stamp the trees with Versamark ink lining up the tree on the right in the center panel of the cardstock. Re-ink the stamp and then line the tree on the left right next to the previously stamp tree.
- Next stamp the snowflakes in a triangular pattern and then fill in one at a time to create the look of falling snow. Adhere to card base.
- Die cut a fishtail banner out of white cardstock. Stamp the sentiment in Versamark ink and then heat emboss with gold embossing powder. Adhere to the center of the card with some foam adhesive.
- Tie a bow with some string and then glue to the top of the sentiment banner with liquid adhesive. Trim the ends of the bow.
