Default If you could only use one Christmas set

If you could only use one Christmas set this year what would you choose? I'd pick Stampin' Up's Season of Simple Grace.

Almost all my holiday cards (ever) have had snowflakes on them (usually the retired Snowflakes set or the also retired Snow Flurries set).

This year I plan to use Keep Christmas but will probably also use Frosty (always wanted it and finally got it when it was on the retiring list). Almost all of the cards I make (50-60 most years) are different so I find it hard to use just one set (not surprising since I find it hard to use just one design).

This will be a fun thread to read!

Frosty! Love snowmen of any kind of stamp but he's my all time favorite!

I am only using one . . . and that's the one that I am using as well! I plan emboss with silver on navy cardstock.

I'm thinking either Snow Swirled or A Wish For Peace. I've made a prototype of each (A Wish For Peace is in my gallery) but I think the Wish one would be a lot more time consuming not to mention costly paper wise. I haven't uploaded my Snow Swirled one yet since I'm still trying to figure out how to dress it up or if I wanna change it.

Season of Joy even though I don't have it (it's on it way though, yay!). Out of the ones that I have, probably Peace To the World, love the little lion and lamb....and out of the catty, Snow Swirled...hope to get that one soon!

I went Christmas set crazy this year and bought several sets. But I normally just make one design for my 70 or so cards. This year, I used the retired set Peace On Earth. I was just really drawn to the idea of this set. I did a gatefold card that turned out pretty well for a card that can't be too complex as it is mass-produced. I will post a picture in my gallery later today if you want to look.

This year I'm using A Cardinal Christmas (the new Holiday Mini set) I love the cardinals in the winter and living in Ohio , where the cardinal is our state bird, I thought it was especially appropriate to use this year.

I have two favs, Snowflakes and Flaky Friends, both retired. I just got Christmas Cardinal. I am hoping to find time to play with it this weekend.

I think I'm doing 3 different designs.

Home for Christmas
Snow Swirled
A Wish for Peace

If I could only do one, I think it would be Snow Swirled. I can mass produce very elegant cards with navy shimmer CS and silver embossing powder fairly quickly. The others require coloring which takes me more time.

If I could only pick one this year, it would be Snow Swirled. But it would KILL me to only use one set for all my cards, LOL!

Lovely as a Tree. I have seen some very beautiful cards made with that set.
I need to put it on my Christmas list.

Most of my friends are expecting my annual religious inspired card, but I am going to use ....

Sunny Seasonal Greetings! I live in South Florida after all - it fits!

For SU I would choose Snow Swirled, but my all time favorite right now is Inkadinkado Christmas Silhouettes. I did the reindeer embossed in gold on champagne shimmer cs and the angel with the Merry Christmas Sentiment embossed in silver on navy.

My favorites are Lovely as a Tree and Peaceful Wishes. However, having used both in the past, this year I am using City of David.

I'm using Crab & Company since I'm moving to FL next week. For my scrapbook class, though, we are using Season of Joy.
