Holiday Cards – Cute and Whimsical Cards

By Cards

Hi all,

Today’s card theme for Holiday Style is to create a card that is cute or whimsical. Here’s the card I came up with to contribute to the class.

The piece is watercolored using distress inks. I loved the look so much that I decided to make this a mass produced card!

Here’s a fun little card featuring wood veneers (used to make the trees) and some fun stamped and colored elements (the snowman & bird). These 2 friends are totally in the holiday spirit.

Got some fun cards coming up and a MONSTER of a project to share on the last day so stay tuned folks ~ it’s gonna be good.

Holiday Cards 2014 – Day 14

Hi All,

Welcome to another day of holiday cards!

christmas_ornament

Today’s card is VERY dimensional and ornate. This card features 2 coordinating patterned papers & a gold embellishment from an entirely different collection. In order to pull the 2 together, I maintained a leaf pattern and made sure it wasn’t too busy. To finish off the card I tied some ribbon behind the embellishment to give it the look of a hanging ornament.

This is a great project for card-makers who have many leftover cuts from other projects and would like to create using ‘leftovers’.

Hi All,

Welcome to Day 13!

christmas_gold_foil

I’m back with another look of gold foil on a greeting card. I love how it brightens up these ‘flat’ patterns and gives a whole lot of dimension to the card. To achieve the gold foil look on the sentiment I heat embossed the sentiment with Glam Gold embossing powder.

Papers: DCWV Christmas Collection

Stamp: Simon Says Stamp – Be Joyful
