Hi there crafty friends! I hope you all had a safe and happy holiday. Today I am coming on the blog to share another holiday card.  Yes, I know Christmas has past, but some of you may still be looking to send out your 2020 holiday cards, so here is another sample of quick and easy cards you can send out to family friends. 

Today's card is using the Festive Noel die along with the Christmas Quotes stamp and die set.


To get started, I first die cut my background panel from a sheet of 6x6 patterned paper from the Memory Box Garland paper pad using the double stitched rectangle frame die. Next I adhered both the frame and the rectangle patterned pieces together to my green cardstock card base with some tape runner adhesive.  

Then I die cut the Noel sentiment  twice from the Festive Noel die. I  die cut the sentiment and frame cnce from a scrap piece of gold foil cardstock, then again from a scrap piece of red glitter cardstock. Next I paper pieced the glittered letters of Noel into the gold foiled framed sentiment using some clear tape to on the back of the sentiment to hold both the frame and die cut letters together. I attached the combined foiled and glittered sentiment to the center of my card with some foam tape. 


Next I stamp the coordinating sentiment "Christmas is in the air" onto a strip of black cardstock with some Versamark ink. I then sprinkled fine detailed white embossing powder from Hero Arts and heat set the sentiment with my heat gun. Then I die cut the sentiment strip with the coordinating banner die using my Gemini Junior die cutting machine. Lastly I adhered the sentiment strip to the card with some foam tape. 


And there you have it! Another clean and simple, yet elegant christmas card the comes together in minutes. I hope you have enjoyed today's card project and found inspiration. Until next time.... happy crafting!

Mistletoe Hugs
by Jeanne Jachna


I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas and that the holiday spirit stays with you throughout the coming year!  I know you've been really nice, so you're probably going to have to send a few thank you's  for the gifts you've received! 


I wanted to incorporate the colors of the season (reds and greens) and some holiday foliage (mistletoe) on this holiday thank you card.   My favorite way to thank someone is with a big hug.  That's probably because sometimes I just can't find the right words to express how I feel when someone does something nice for me. 


This card starts with a color block background. I simply divided the cover size of my card (5.5" less 1/4 inch for the border = 5.25") by 5 (the amount of colors I wanted to use) and came up with 1.05 - so I cut the strips a little bigger than 1".  I taped the strips together on their reverse side and then trimmed the panel to fit my card front. 


 I cut the Holiday Mistletoe from white card stock and adhered one along the top and one along the bottom of the card.  A big LUSCIOUS hugs is adhered right in the middle of the card.  I cut the outline die from gold glitter paper because I just can't resist a little sparkle. 


You can see how nice and flat this card is - that makes it easy to mail with no extra postage!    The stamped sentiment is from a retired set.. maybe you have it - called "Sentiments of Love".


Signing off for 2020 - my wish for us all is that 2021 brings all good things - good health, prosperity and employment, and much love and happiness.

Merry Christmas
by Candice Crawford


Hey there crafty friends, Candice here on the blog to share with you a quick and easy Christmas card that can easily be mass produced. Today's card features the Snowy Merry Christmas die and the Garland pattern paper from Memory Box. 

With just 4 more days till Christmas, if you're needing a quick and easy card to make and get into the mail or to accompany a handmade gift; today's card share is the perfect project for you. To get started, you will need to cut the Poppystamps Snowy Merry Christmas die once from green cardstock and twice from red cardstock. If you want even more dimension, you can cut the sentiment from the red cardstock three times instead of twice.


Next adhere the red sentiment pieces together one on top of each other with some liquid adhesive. Then with the green sentiment, adhere this piece onto the red sentiment slightly ajar so that you create a red shadow background to the sentiment. With a snow marker add the liquid snow to the top of the "Merry" portion of the sentiment then use you heat gun to make the white liquid puff up to a snowy dimension. 


With your Double Stitch Rectangle Frame die, cut a sheet of pattern paper from the Garland 6x6 Paper pad to use as your background for the card. Then adhere the patterned paper and coordinating frame together onto your cardbase with some liquid adhesive. 

Next cut a strip of red glitter cardstock to 4.25 x 2.25 and adhere it to the center of the patterned paper. Then cut a strip of gold cardstock to 4.25 x 2 and adhere the glitter cardstock with liquid adhesive. Then finally cut a piece of cream cardstock to 4.25 x 1.75 and adhere this piece on top of the gold cardstock with liquid adhesive. Trim off any excess cardstock from the edges of the card. 


This card is absolutely stunning and has a ton of dimension. You will enjoy creating this quick and easy card for your friends and family. I hope you have enjoyed today's quick card share and found inspiration. Until next time.... happy crafting.

Christmas Porch Easel Card
by Sue McRae


Hello everyone! Only a few days left until Christmas! I hope you have all your shopping done and cookies baked!

I’m stopping in with my last card for 2020 and final Christmas card with the Winter Porch Pop Up Easel Set.


My first decision was colour palette and decided on turquoise and red, one of my favorite colour combos.


This card is easy to put together, it’s just a matter of die cutting all the pieces in your chosen colours.

Once I adhered all the house pieces I decided to add a couple of large trees from the Evergreen Trio on either side of the door. I have three layers of white cardstock and the top layer is silver glitter cardstock. This gives the trees some thickness and make them stand out from the porch front.


The snow on the roof is white glitter cardstock and the greenery hanging on the front door is from the very tip of the large Holiday Mistletoe die.


For the inside of the card I have two sentiments. The white circle sentiment was heat embossed in silver and I tripled up the Holly Merry Christmas for some added dimension.


Thank you so much for joining me today and I thank you for following along with all my posts this past year. I wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and all the best for a great 2021!
