Holiday Cards 2014 – Day 6

By Cards

Hi All,

I’m back with a new card & video for you!

Today’s card features some quick digital cuts made on my silhouette sd cutting machine. This type of card is a prime example of a card that takes more time to conceptualize then actually create. Once the cuts were made, it all came together so quickly!

Here’s how I made it:

Supplies:

Cardstock: Neenah Desert Storm Environmental Cardstock and Bazzil frost white

Snowflake: American Crafts 6×6 holiday stack

Misc: Tag, banner and brown pen

Holiday Gift Card Holder Using SVG Cut Files – Part 3 of 4

Hi all,

We’re on to card 3 of the series and I have to say that I am truly enjoying making each one of these. They are so simple to make since they are done on SCAL2.

We’re on to card 3 of the series and I have to say that I am truly enjoying making each one of these. They are so simple to make since they are done on SCAL2. SVGCuts has been a phenomenal discovery for me to work with. Today’s gift card holder was made for a male recipient. I used a decorative red snowflake pattern on the back to make it look like a colorful tissue paper was added. I also split up the front into several different designed layers. I love the way that worked out since some of the pieces were scraps of the previous projects. But nothing about this bag says “leftover”. My husband loved the detailing in the faux stitching and stated that it made a great accent. Overall, again I’m very happy with the turn out on this project.

 

Supplies:

Cardstock: DCWV Christmas Combo Stack & Holiday Collection Stack (for bag), K & Company (Winter Wonderland Sentiment)
Ribbon: Sold-By-Spool Ribbon (AC Moore)
Pen: White Gel Pen

The Giftbag & Sentiment were cut from SVGCuts.com free SVGS – They were then put into SCAL for editing.

Thanks for stopping by & feel free to leave comments!

Christmas Card Using Acetate Sentiment

By Cards

Oh What Fun

It’s almost Christmas time! I’m getting into the spirit of the holidays and wanted to share a holiday card I made. It is a very easy to make and has great detail. I recently discovered acetate embellishment packs at my local craft store. This pack had beautiful vintage style prints on the clear plastic material. To adhere the pieces down I used some liquid glue on just the parts that had print on them (so the glue wouldn’t show through the clear parts). I couldn’t believe how quickly a card could come together using this type of embellishment! How fun!

As I am getting more and more into cardmaking it is becoming clear that I need to invest into some better quality materials to work with. I especially feel the need to invest into some thicker cardstock than I am currently using. These last few weeks of creating have me feeling so inspired!
