Christmas Cards #3

These are my newest cards. They are both square cards.

This one was made with a digital stamp by mosdigitalpencil called "In the Manger". When I saw this image I just fell in love with it. I just changed it up the baby was bald so I just added some hair. The sentiment stamp was one that I had for a long time, I felt it matched this image perfectly. I added Stickles to the wings and Spica to the straw. The snowflakes were punched with glitter paper.

This tree was made the same way as the wreath (in the prior post). I used a tree from the Sizzix die "Large Pine Tree" to make the background. the lights are also made with Tulip Beads in a Bottle. The star is a Martha Stewart punch called "Radiant Star". The presents are made from cardstock covered with paper and ribbon. The snow is made with Flower Soft.

Christmas Cards #2

Here are two more cards that I made this weekend. The first one is called a Swing card and the second is called a Gate Fold card.

This card style is called "Swing Card". On this card the middle swings when you open and close the card. This one was made with 3D stickers, buttons, ribbon, and a Sizzix strip die called "Christmas Lights".

This card style is called "Gate Fold Card". The image is a digital image from Mo's Digital Pencil. It was colored with Copic markers. Cut out with Spellbinders Nestabilities dies.

Holiday Planner

I saw this on another blog (but could not remember where sorry) and just had to make one for myself. It is an altered composition book. The front is covered an embossed Christmas cardstock by K & Company. I also used a green cardstock for an accent. I cut the title out with the Cricut using the "Hello Kitty Font" cartridge. I also added dimensional stickers for accents and added ribbon for a tie to keep the book closed.

The inside of the planner is covered with plain cardstock. There are pockets on both inside covers. The pockets were made with Christmas cardstock. The pockets are perfect for receipts and lists. I found dividers on another website. The tabs were cut using the Tim Holtz Alterations die by Sizzix called "Tiny Tabs & Tags".

This book was a lot of fun to make.

Christmas Cards #1

I started making my Christmas cards for this year. I wanted to do things differently this year and make all different styles. So I search youtube for new ideas and here is what I came up with.
This one is suppose to look like a door with a wreath on it. It was very simple to make. First I make a thin circle by making a circle and cutting the inside out. Then I applied leaves punched from the EK punch "Rock Fern". Placed several layers around the circle. I then applied Tulips Beads in a Bottle "Pearl Red" to make the berries and "Onyx" to make the door knob. To make the door panels I just cut 4 rectangles the popped them out with dimensionals. Add a bow and I was done.

This card was made using the Cricut and the "Create-a-Critter" cartridge. I welded two bags using the Gypsy. Then cut out 2, 1 white and 1 print. I then cut only the top of the bags in a different color. I did this by placing the image off the mat that made it cut only the top out. I used real tissue paper on the top of the bag by placing it between the two layers. Add ribbon, a bow along with a sticker and I was done.

I will be updating with more cards as I get them made,
