Holiday Cards – Day 4

By | Cards | No Comments

Hello All,

Welcome back to another day of Holiday cards. I hope you’re enjoying following along with all the little projects I’ve been making.

One of my favorite things to do when designing cards are to create a simple layout that can easily be duplicated. Today’s cards are a prime example of easy to duplicate styles.

For these cards, I used minimal supplies. I used a nice thin washi tape that reminds me of a candy stripe. I then added several coordinating stickers that are beautifully opaque and thick from American Crafts. I found the collection to have many styles and patterns that I liked — so I decided to create several variations of cards.

Here’s a look at how quickly they came together.

Here’s a look at all the cards created from this washi and sticker project day!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you again real soon with all new projects.

Holiday Cards – Day 3

Hi All,

I’m back with another clean and simple holiday card. I used some extra fine clear embossing powder with a simple sentiment to heat emboss a tone-on-tone look. I also choose to use some woodgrain embossed cardstock as a card base, I love the overall vintage feel of this card.

Here’s a look at how it all came together.

 

Holiday Cards – Day 2

By | Cards | No Comments

Hi All,

I’m back with another day of holiday-themed cards. I wanted to continue using up some of my 6×6 paper stacks and decided to go with one of my all-time favorite ways of adding a sentiment to cards. I used some rub-on appliques from Little Yellow Bicycle. I love the opaque results an applique can give to a card and it is a no-mess solution as well. I like to cut up an applique sheet and separate the images so that I don’t transfer any images I don’t want accidentally. There are many tools out there that are designed to help get the image on, but honestly, a simple craft stick will work just as well.

To finish off the card I made a faux stitched white line using a gel pen. I think this is a great way to create some beautiful cards for the holidays with minimal supplies needed.

Here’s a quick video on how it all came together.

Here’s a closer look at the finished cards.

With the extra bit of paper trimmed from the background, I created an additional card. I used the same stitched line around the edge and added a simple sentiment from the paper stack.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you again real soon for another project.

Merry Christmas and welcome to Day 20! We made it!

candycane_house

This is by far and large my favorite project of the whole series. I was so excited when this was completed and knew I wanted to share it for day 20! This house features various intricate cuts that features the use of over 8 different papers and multiple gems. It is decorated on each side too!  So any angle of view is captivating. It can definitely be used to house any little gift or add a little battery powdered tea-light candle to make it a decor piece.This little gem will housed on our coffee table during the holiday season for friends and family to enjoy.

Thanks so much for all your positive feedback on the series and I truly enjoyed putting this together for all my readers. Until next year – I wish you all a blessed and happy holiday season.
