Holiday Cards 2014 – Day 8

By Cards

Hi all,

Welcome to Day 8 featuring a holiday presents garland via papers from Basic Grey.


I’ve got to say I absolutely LOVE this card for the quality of materials it incorporates. The red card base is such a nice thick material that is super sturdy and can be handled roughly in the mail but still maintain it’s structure. The banner is popped up on dimensional on a wood grain background that is so subtle you may even miss it if you look too quickly. Also, notice how the garland is actually stitched together!? So many little details…this is truly a card that was a wow-factor in person.


Card Base: Simon Says Stamp Card Stock

Wood grain: Paper Place white woodgrain

Presents garland: Basic Grey

Misc: white gel pen and adhesives

Joy to the World

Hi All,

I got another Christmas card to share with you today! For this card I wanted to try out a new shape and design. I designed the entire card using my silhouette cutting machine and some good quality cardstock.

By the way, I have a sentiment on the inside (I will post a picture over on etsy). It reads “Merry Everything”. LOL It covers all your holiday wishes for family and friends.


You Lift Me Up

By Cards

Hi all,

I have another project to share with you from the Simon Says Stamp kit. This card features some papers and dies from the Basic Grey “What’s Up” collection that I am totally diggin’ right now. I was trying to find a use for some of the hot air balloon images in the collection and thought I would do a play on words with “you lift me up”. I think it turned out pretty cute a dare a say a bit whimsical.

Happy Birthday Balloon

Hi all,

I don’t know why, but I’ve been on such a hot air balloon kick lately with my cards. I think is my favorite! I’ve been getting into the practice of designing the interior of my cards to coordinate with the exterior and this card is a prime example of how awesome it is when both sides come together!

Here is the outside


And here is the inside!


As nice as it looks in pictures, this card looks so pretty in reality.

Thanks for stopping by! =)
