Holiday Cards – Classic and Elegant

By Cards

Hi all,

I’m back with another card for the online card class. Today’s theme is to focus on cards that are classic and elegant. There were so many variations of cards today. It was interesting to see how each designer envisions classic and elegant.

For this card I wanted to try a version of a card created by one of the guest designers.

First I sketched out the design of an ornament.


For this card I needed many small shaped stamps. Here are a few that I pulled from my stash.


I slowly began stamping and filling in my sketch. Here’s the finished project!


I also enjoyed a card made to look vintage and classic and wanted to try that version of cards as well.


I love that this class makes me think outside the box and create cards using schemes that normally wouldn’t occur to me. Super fun!

Holiday Cards 2014 – Day 17

By Cards

Hi all,

We’re almost at the conclusion of the 2014 Holiday Card Series. The next few cards will be just some fun holiday crafts I have created this year in my craft room.


This card was created using my Silhouette cutting machine and features 4 panels with cut-out circles that move with the stretch of the card. When closed it looks like a regular card. I didn’t add a sentiment to this one, I love the simplicity of just the ornament designs. It still fits into a regular size envelope and can be mailed quite easily. I love that it’s just another take to a lovely holiday card for friends or family.

See you next time for Day 18!
