Christmas Ideas #2

Hi everyone

A few more ideas for you, using up some more of the Christmas paper stack.

 

This simple card is white with a red layer, then an embossed green layer of card, patterned paper on the top half, a band, sentiment and flower from the paper pack and a leaf which I stamped on to acetate then die cut. A couple pieces of ribbon added behind the flower, some pearls and some Inka gold rubbed over the embossing finished the design. The insert is stamped with a sentiment from Stampin'up and trees from Tim Holtz.



 

This second card is again white, with red paper, spotty paper and then red snowflake paper layered on top. I added a holly paper band, a white paper, then a white glitter paper banner, a glittered scalloped square, then a flower and sentiment circle from the paper pack. Some snowflake sequin scatters and pearls are added. The stamped sentiment in the insert is by Stampin'up.

 
 

This card is a trifold stepper, all in pink, silver and white. I punched the edge of the front paper and inserted a strip of silver foil card behind it. The Star of Wonder and the Let us adore him sentiments are by Daily Bread designs and the star light sentiment is by CD. All have been silver embossed. Silver stars and pearls were all the embellishment the paper needed.


This card is again based on white. I have used green card to mat the papers.
The card is an easel design. I trimmed the bottom of the paper and placed it at the top and layered the remainder of the paper sheet over the top, after trimming the curve. A strip of ribbon was attached across, and this was then fixed to the card front.
Another sheet of the paper was then cut and the top section placed inside the card for a message, and the bottom strip with the bird was stamped with a Stampin'up sentiment. matted on to green card and fixed with dimensionals, to act as the easel stopper. A small strip of ribbon was added.

Rhinestones were added to the card front, to finish the design..








These cards are all really fun to make, and very cost effective using those free paper gifts.
Till next time- keep happy crafting
