Another Trio for the Holidays

 

This dishes are done and there are plenty of left overs in the fridge.

It's time to get your craft on and create your holiday cards.

Here are 3 more ideas to consider!


Are you a Washi Tape Lover?


Create your own patterned paper using various washi tape in the Christmas/holiday theme.
Putting them at an angle is pleasing to the eye!

How about paper flowers?
Layer our red Paper Flowers with a cardstock cut out...add some pearl bling...
and cut the green paper flowers to add the leaves.
The magic of Christmas makes a poinsettia!! Wow!


Are you one who is eagerly looking for Santa?


Our Mr. & Mrs. Claus Brads make a great focal point on your card,
without having to color them in. This is especially helpful when you are mass producing cards!

Other supplies:

Do you like the style of A Country Christmas?


Create a Barn Door by making 2 scores that have the edges meet in the middle.
Bend our Pewter Round Brads to create the door handles.

Decorate as desired. Here is used the following:

I hope these cards from the past get your creative mojo flowing.
Take a look through your stash and make these ideas your own...


Wishing you the happiest of Christmases and a healthy, peaceful New Year!

Three Faves

 This week,

the design team is showing you some tried and true holiday favorites so you can get a jump on your holiday card making! 


Here are just three of my favorites...with a few tricks and tips for you too!



I love this one b/c it show cases our Bling Jewels and Bling Strips!
A holiday card with glitz and gleam bring warmth to the season!

Also, you can easily cater this card to your private washi tape collection...
or why not buy more. 




Chances are you have great stamps in your crafty alcove.
Eyelet Outlet has amazing decorative brads that will coordinate and embellish any theme!

Check out all these snowy brads:





If you are a fan of wreaths, check out this tip to create a nice circle.
Here I make the wreath on a card stock circle, of the same background as my base.  
By doing so, it blends into the background.
You are left  with our lovely bling and decorative brads!

Supplies:


May all your wishes come true this season
and my you share the joy of of the holidays with everyone around you!
