Hi Crafty Friends,
Christmas is coming up fast but these two cards are quick and easy to create and the critters can be used all winter so if you order now you can still use them in January, February, and March!
Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: How many Christmas cards did you make this year?
A: Me? 140+
The first card is with the darling mom/daughter or father/son pair of Whittle Polar Bears.
I used the Wintertime Snowflake Frame Die to frame this duo. Then I splattered the entire card with white Copic Opaque Paint and added the sparkle with Christmas Fairy Jewels.
For my second card, I used the same Wintertime Snowflake Frame die but this time I created a scene with the Whittle Forest Reindeer Kit.
I splattered a beautiful blue paper from the Stormy Blue 6x6 Paper Pad with Copic Opaque white and gold watercolor paint to create a shimmery snow.
The Freestyle Script Joy die just adds the perfect sentiment for how this deer family is feeling spending the holiday together.
BONUS CARD! The Oval Fold Frame die makes highlighting sentiments and shape dies easy. I used it below to frame my sentiment from the Christmas Sparkle Set with the fun Whittle Cocoa with Whip die.
I embellished the edges with the Scallop Tall Curve Border Die and added some holly to match the plaid in the Memory Box Holiday paper.
Here is how it opens...
Hello to you all. Marybeth Lopez here with you today.
May the peace and joy of Christmas fill your hearts at this time of year and always.
I have a pretty pink Christmas card for you today. I used the Poppystamps Iced Pine Trees.
I layered the trees a few times, also layered the snow edges a few times. I added glitter to the snow edge and simply added to the card on top of the beautiful patterned paper by memory box.
Above is the paper pack that I used from memory box. I used the first one on the left, pretty pink , red and gold. I thought it gave a minty look to the card.
Not sure you can see in the photo but the bit of gold in the stripe on the patterned paper , gives just enough sparkle to the edge of the card.
I stamped the sentiment in red to bring the card together and add just a bit more red.
Thank you for stopping by today Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
I hope you can find some ( good for you) crafty time.
God Bless you all.
Christmas Greetings to all! Do you need a fun last minute holiday card? I have a shaker for you today.
The new Stacked Joy die cuts all 3 letters of the word Joy together. I die cut once in gold and 5 times in black. Be sure and keep the center of the letter 'O'. You won't need the black.
I used the top gold die cut and glued it to clear card stock before fussy cutting around each letter.
The finished shaker is filled with tiny sequins, and the gold with the clear cardstock is glued over the frame.
I hope you enjoyed today's simpler card. I think any shaker is a joy for the recipient, don't you? Have a great holiday week!
Tea may be an overlooked gift at this time of year. Wine and spirits are often the most popular for gift giving. But one cup of tea might be just the refreshing break a friend or relative needs this holiday season. I put together this little treat holder using a template I found on Pinterest. On Pinterest, simply search for "paper treat pocket," and a step-by-step guide will show you how to fold a double-sided 6 x 6" piece of paper into this. It takes no adhesive (although I put some under the front flap to keep it down) and can be done in 1 minute.
