Holiday Cards 2014 – Day 14

By Cards

Hi All,

Welcome to another day of holiday cards!


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’.

We are half way there! Welcome to day 10.


Today’s card was created using the technique of paper piecing. There were 4 different sheets used to create this card. Can you spot them? Typically I stick with the same brand and collection to make for easy coordination. This card goes outside that box because it is blended with 4 different brands and 4 different collections.


Card Base: Kraft Brown by Recollections

Papers: Pink Paislee – Snow Village, American Crafts – Hot Cocoa, Neenah – Solar White

Sentiment Pattern: Crate Paper – Sleigh Ride Chipboard Accents

Holiday Cards 2014 – Day 7

Hi all,

I’ve a snowman trio and another circle card for you today!


This card came together rather quickly and is easy to mass produce. The snowman trio is an element that I purchased while on Thanksgiving break in Houston, Texas. As soon as I saw them I knew they’d make for a great card!

The coordinating papers are from American Crafts Merrymint collection & were cut using silhouette studio. This cutting machine of mine is really paying for itself this season. It makes for some quick and easy to assemble cards.

Here’s how I put this one together once I had all the pieces:


Card base: Neenah Desert Storm Environmental Cardstock

Patterned papers: American Crafts Merrymint 6×6 collection

Misc: White gel pen, Snowman trio embellishment
