Snowflakes and Ornaments Card

My friend Carole over at Scrapbook Campus had this wonderful idea to share cards and envelope templates with her friends. The idea was to share how these templates could be used in paintshop pro as well as with some good ole paper or digitally or anyway that us friends that would work.

Carole has sent a different template to each of her friends for the first 12 days of December and their have been so amazing tutorials already. You can sign up on her website and you will get a link to each template in your email. If you sign up today, tomorrow will be your first email, but Carole will have a link to all twelve card and envelope templates available at the end of the series.

Sign up on her website, and you’ll get a link to each template in your mailbox each morning. If you sign up today, tomorrow will be your first email, but Carole will have a link to all twelve card and envelope templates available at the end of the series.

This is the template I worked with:

For my card I wanted to use the Art Philisophy cartridge from Close To My Heart and one of the coordinating stamp sets. I designed my entire card in Design Space and cut it out. The next thing for me to do was stamp my ornaments. Now here is where the tutorial comes into play. I cut out this intricate snowflake design to incorporate into my card and wanted to adhere it without making a mess. This is where I decided to break my trusty sewing machine out.

You can grab the cut file that I created for the card by clicking here. I currently only have a cut file for Design Space but if you are interested in a cut file for the Craft Room I would be happy to whip it up for you.

In the sewing machine it goes

I used a light blue thread but only because I didn’t already have a bobbin ready for my dark blue thread and I craft on a limited time basis with the baby. The next step was to stamp my ornaments and adhere them to the card.

Stamped the ornaments with coordinating stamp set A1149

I used some embroidery thread to make it look like the ornaments were hanging and this is the step that I should have completed before I pasted my insides down. Instead I used my mini stapler and adhered the string to the card. I think it came out just fine.

Completed Card

Here is the inside of the card that I stamped with a stamp from the Snowhaven Card Workshop on the Go in Glacier ink.

Next step was to make an envelope. For this I just grabbed my envelope punch board and some pretty sonwflake patterened paper. For the inside of the envelope I misted my paper with Heidi Swapp’ Mint Green color shine (I love this stuff by the way). This way it won’t just be plain white when someone takes the card out.

Last but not least here is the front of my envelope. Just an FYI, don’t make this size envelope to mail out otherwise you will have to pay extra money. I figured this card would be good for someone local to me.

Creative Christmas Crafting

make it mondayDecember 1st is here and with that the Creative Christmas bundle is almost gone as well. At 90% off this is the deal of the century and is jam packed with so many projects to make your Christmas crafting easy and fun. Today I am going to show how I incorporated some of the products from the other designers that participated in putting this bundle together.

Margareta has created an entire pocket scrapbooking kit for this bundle and it is gorgeous. In preparation of documenting my December Daily this year I downloaded the files and put them on my phone. I know that I will want to create some collage photos for my December Daily album and these pocket cards are perfect. I even played around in the Aviary app to add some effects to one of the 3×4 cards. You can take these cards and make them your own by sticking them into a photo editing app.

I took Margareta’s cards and put them in a project life layout via the project life app so that you could see some of the cards that are available. I also want to share that whether the card is 3×4 or 4×6 it conforms to the pocket that you are placing the card in, as you can see I used 4×6, 4×4 and 3×4 sizes in these layouts. I edited the snowman card with the Aviary app which was free for the whole month of November along with all the effects that are available in the app but their are tons of apps that you can use to edit these cards to make them fit your December Daily theme.

Here is the catch, if you like these cards or need some help with crafting this holiday season then this bundle is for you but Today is the last day that you can get this bundle at 90% off. After today the bundle will no longer be available. Their are other digital scrapbooking kits available in the bundle, an Advent Calendar activity, Christmas cards, a Calendar that you can create for the new year, embroidery patterns and more. Don’t miss out on this amazing bundle of crafty goodies. I even forgot to mention the Cricut and Silhouette cut files that are also available in the bundle. You can grab the bundle by clicking HERE.

If you would like to see what some of the other designers have created by using this bundle you can hop on over to Janet where she shares with you how she likes to make a digital template her own and a few template tricks using her products from the Creative Christmas Bundle and I am hoping that you came to me from Kristie who showed you how to jazz up printables to create unique cards with minimum time & effort.

The next deal that is available is amazing and is also only available today only. Both of these offers end at 11:59 pm on December 1st.
