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!

Holiday Cards 2014 – Day 20

By Cards

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


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.

Hi All,

I hope you are all doing better than I am with all of your holiday shopping. I can’t believe that we are only a few days away! WOW! I’ve been cranking away in my craft room creating some cards for friends and family. Today I used some fun Christmas tags as a focal point for these cards.

Check ’em out!

Peace on Earth




Deck The Halls




I absolutely love the way these turned out! I think my favorite part is that these cards are gender neutral. They are the type of cards you’re not ashamed to give a coworker/classmate and have to walk away slightly embarrassed that the card might be a little too cutesy. I know you know what i’m talking about! Anyhow, I’m off to tackle my holiday list… I may even sneak a few of these cards into some boxes.

Warm wishes ~ JS
