Holiday Card Series 2014 – A Gift for You

So sorry to those of you who noticed card #11 didn’t post yesterday! Had a craft fair with my Checkerberry Lane Studio booth and forgot to post it!  Anyway…

Card # 11 |  Another card to showcase those adorable 6×6 Christmas Sweater papers…

ChristmasSweater

I started this card with a 3.5″square panel of cherry card stock and cut nine 1″ squares of the various patterns in the Christmas Sweater paper packet. I glued the paper squares to the 3.5″ panel and popped this panel off of the sugar card base with some 3D foam squares. I added a large, white bow using the sugar 5/8″ satin ribbon and tucked in a little tag with the “Be Merry” sentiment from the Oh What Fun stamp set.

I will wait until tonight to post the final card in the Holiday Card Series… enjoy!!

 

 

Holiday Card Series 2014 – Christmas Sweater Paper #1

Card #10 |  This particular card would be super easy to reproduce in multiples and you could do it rather quickly, too…

Card#10-HCS2014I started with a base card in sugar, cutting the card stock to 4.25 x 11″ and folding in half so that the fold is on the top edge of the card. I rounded the bottom corners and added a narrow strip of cherry and a larger panel of the deer paper from the 6×6 Christmas Sweater paper packet.  I stamped the sentiment from the Wishing You the Merriest stamp set in cherry ink on a smaller sugar panel, rounding the corners on this piece as well, and popping it off of the card front with 3D foam squares. The final touch was to add a few Bermuda sequins (with Glue Dots) to give the card a little sparkle.
