Holiday Cards – Day 1

By | Cards | No Comments

Hi All,

Welcome back! As you may have known, I’ve been on quite the holiday card kick. I spent the last few posts working on cards for Merry Making for Online Card Classes. Now, I am onto a new series! I’m excited to say for the first year, I will be creating 25 posts (that’s 3 posts a week) that will lead us all the way up to Christmas 2017! Each week I will be posting up new projects every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

For this card, I wanted to focus on the very simple concept of background inking. I have a plethora of 6×6 Christmas cardstock and decided to flip through them all and pull out a bunch of sheet music themed papers. As you will see in the video below, I ended up with quite a stack.

The papers are from the following collections:

Old World Winter – The Paper Studio
HS01073 – Heidi Swapp
Noel – American Crafts (I pulled these patterns in the video, but didn’t end up using them)

I used a single cube of Distress Ink in Vintage Photo to ink the sheets so that they coordinated better. To finish off the card I added some red bakers twine and some simple American Crafts embellishments.

This set coordinates well with a kraft envelope and can be gifted as a set, or sent out individually.

Here’s a video on how it was all created.

Here’s a closer look at the finished cards.

Hey all,

It’s been a long while since I’ve updated you on some projects and happenings of the craft room. I’m happy to say that it’s been a great start to the new year and I was working on a bunch of orders in January. Luckily, I have had some time to work on newer projects that I am happy to share with you today.

Last year I made an assortment of classroom/workplace type mini cards that were a hit with so many of you. This year I thought I’d bring back my favorite set. Here’s a look at how they turned out

Each card slightly varies but coordinates with the next. I also used my silhouette to create some fun kraft envelopes that I die-cut and assembled for each set.

I also included a little area on the inside of each card for a little note to be written.

Each card and envelope measures just under 3 1/2″ and is perfect with a little treat for the upcoming holiday!

Hi All,

Lately I have had a quite a few friends ask me if I could come up with some funnier Christmas cards. Today I have one that may qualify for the techy people in your life. On the exterior this card looks like any other classy christmas card.

But the inside reveals your sincerest of holiday wishes for the recipient. =)

In all honesty the interior can be customized to any sentiment. I just liked this one thought I’d pop it on this card for fun! ha!
