Carole created these pretty Christmas cards with Cosmo Cricket's "Mitten Weather" Collection. Creating with purple, red and green was a little different for Carole but that is what made this collection so nice because it all worked so well together and all the cute stickers, borders and tags all matched perfectly for all the embellishing.
Iris made a set of Christmas cards that are very easy to re-create - and very economical too. If you take a close look at these four cards, she only used two sheets of patterned paper from Webster's Pages Waiting for Santa (The Delivery and Falalala), plus some dark green cardstock. Add a few stamping using Pink Paislee stamps, ribbon or lace, and some Prima flowers, and you are set to send holiday greetings on the way.
Not normally much of a cardmaker, Louise created these in under an hour and loved them so much, she's mass producing them for Christmas! She started with some white cardstock and cut a 1" strip off before embossing it with a dotted pattern. The strip was then given a decorative edge with a border punch and put aside.
Next she cut 1" strips from the various printed papers and sewed them together with a zig zag stitch. These were then cut down to fit onto each card size front and the corners were rounded. To add interest to a couple she punched a scalloped circle out of the background and then all backgrounds were adhered to the card using foam tape for dimension.
Using the diecut paper, she cut a 1" strip from the edge and positioned it, adhering the punched cardstock strip over the top to hide the edge. Arrange the Poinsettia flowers and vines into place and adhere with a strong glue. Stamp some words onto offcuts of the same cardstock and use a 1" circle punch to cut out your headings. Arrange and adhere with foam tape into place.
These cards are very quick and economical to make, and each can be made slightly differently just by changing your title, punches and the order you sew your papers.
