My friend came over the other day to create some Christmas cards. This was her first time ever really stampin’ and she loved it! She chose the Merry Little Christmas Kit since it has everything she needed to make some cards! I love the kits because they are an option to make some quick cards or you can change it up, like my friend did, and create something fun! She used the envelope lines to add another pop of DSP to the card and we pulled out the retired set Serene Snowflakes. The sentiment comes from the set Happy Hour.
If you are interested in purchasing this kit or making you own hand-made Christmas cards, please contact me today at firstname.lastname@example.org! Thanks for stopping by!
After much deliberation, I finally decided on my Christmas card design this year. For some reason, I just couldn’t figure a design that I liked. I decided to do something simple and clean this year that will be easy to mass produce. I enjoy mass producing a single card, I think there is something therapeutic about it. I layered Crumb Cake and Basic Black cardstock and used Very Vanilla to stamp on. I pulled out the retired set Serene Snowflakes and stamped a couple of those in Crumb Cake. From the set Delightful Dozen, I used the Christmas stamp and stamped it in Staz-On Black ink. I bit of Linen Thread with a bow completes the card. The snowflakes go perfect for the challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks to use … snowflakes!

Tonight I made a gift card box using Stampin’ Up! Products. This gift box is quick and easy since you can make it from one sheet of 8.5″ x 11″ card stock. I took my Old Olive card stock and cut it down the middle at 5.5″ and then again at and then again at 6″ creating a piece of cardstock that is 5.5″ by 6″. Then I used my Simply Scored to score each side 1″ in. On each corner, cut one score line to create tabs to fold in creating a box. Do this twice for a top and bottom. The finished box is 3.5″ by 4″, the perfect size for a gift card! Using the stamp set Serene Snowflake, I stamped a couple snowflakes and then layered it on a piece of Rich Razzleberry. I added a piece of Midnight Muse ribbon and using the Fancy Label Punch (punched twice) I created the little sentiment tag. The snowflake images are perfect for the challenge over at The Paper Players. Thanks for stopping by!
I liked those Christmas cards I made the other day (see post here) so much that I turned them into some cute little gift cards holders. Check out the video over at http://stampinbythesea.com/create-a-gift-card-holder for a great tutorial on how to make these super easy gift card holders. I sometimes feel like gift cards can be really un-personal, but by making a little handmade holder, I think it adds a special touch. You only need an 8 by 8 sheet of paper and you are ready to go! I used the Stampin’ Up! sets Serene Snowflakes and Delightful Dozen and added a bit of Lucky Limeaid ribbon. Thanks for stopping by!
I created a couple Christmas cards for my mother-in-law and I think I actually like them better than the Christmas cards I made for myself! I love Pool Party at a Christmas color so I paired it with Old Olive. I pulled out my retired set Serene Snowflakes and stamped a couple. I added the sentiment from the set Delightful Dozen. I finished the card off with some retired Old Olive ribbon. Thanks for stopping by!
