I love making all different types of cards my favorite is interactive cards, but sometimes I like to make a few all at one time to have on hand, especially masculine cards and I thought this kit was perfect for that.
Hello everyone! Kim here with a Christmas card with a pink color scheme to it. I like using non-traditional colors whether it’s for Christmas cards or any other occasions that have an expected color scheme. So here is how this card came together:
used Silver Bells Tags from Kaiserkraft-I used two of them because I wanted the front and the back. I removed the metal piece because I knew I didn’t plan on using the strings that come with the tags.
for the little hole I used pink stone Nuvo drops (QUICK TIP: when you put it down and you want a nice rounded bead don’t be afraid to whack the card against your hand or on a table it will help round the drops out)
This card came together rather quickly and if you only used one tag you could use it for your sentiment for six cards! And you would still have six tags that you could use for tags. Thanks so much for taking a few minutes to visit the blog! I hope you get a chance to do something crafty today!
Card 1 is an A2 size card, I cut the gold glitter paper to 4 1/4 X 5 1/5 and a piece of the pattern paper to 3 X 5 1/2 inches. I adhered the glitter paper to the card base and then centered the pattern paper and adhered it. I used glue dots to adhere the tag so the person receiving it could use if they want!
Card 2 is an A2 size card and I cut a piece of pattern paper to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inches and adhered it to the card base. I cut a piece of silver glitter paper cut to 4 1/2 X 3 inches. I used my cropadile on the front two ends of the card and glitter paper, then I centered the glitter paper and adhered it to the panel. I added the tag on to the glitter paper and that’s it!
Card 3 is an A2 size card and I cut two panels from the pattern paper to about 1 9/16 inch and a piece of the silver glitter paper to 1 1/8 inch. After I adhered all the panels, I added a tag to the inside of the card and that finished that one up.
For my final card I cut a panel from the pattern paper to 4 X 5 1/4 inches to leave a border around the A2 size card. I adhered the tag to a scalloped rectangle that I cut out with a die that was just a little longer than the tags and slightly wider. I added the rectangle piece a little off center on the card.
That’s it for me today! Be sure to check out Scrapping for Less for all the sales!
To create this card I started with an A2 size cardbase or 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inches. I used Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock. I stamped the images I wanted to use with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with copic markers. I used my Scan N Cut to cut the images out.
I cut the glitter paper for the front panel to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inches and cut out a 3 1/4 inch circle towards the top center of the card and then cut out another circle from white card stock with a 3 1/2 inch die.
I adhered all of the tree images to the 3 1/2 inch circle panel and popped the mouse images up with some foam dots. I adhered the 3 1/2 inch circle to the top of the card base and then adhered the glitter paper to the card base lining up the circles. I stamped the sentient “Cold Hands” from Hero Arts Ink in Moss on a white strip of card stock. I cut the banner down to 4 1/4 X 3/4 inches and adhered it towards the bottom of the card with some foam tape.
To finish it off I stamped on the inside of the card the sentiment “Warm Heart”, as well as, the image of the mittens with the string of them creating a heart. I colored in the mittens with copic markers.
Hello hello! Kim here bringing you a card I made with an elegant die from Find It Trading, Christmas Baubles. This delicate die cuts out very nicely, a little tip though if you do like I did and use glitter paper also use a shim it’ll give you a smoother cut. The glitter paper I used is self adhesive which makes it even more user friendly in my opinion. I used silver glitter paper and gold glitter paper because I thought they would really stand out against the red and I was very pleased with how it turned out.
Now I like the baubles a whole lot but I definitely agree that they are not able to carry the whole card but I also wanted them to really stand out. I decided to use MFT’s Merry Christmas Greeting stamp and embossed it in white embossing powder. With this large sentiment offset it left a good amount of space for the Christmas Baubles to fit right in beside it. I adhered it all down to a card front with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and with all the glitteriness (not a real word I know) of the baubles I felt it was finished. Yay! One card down and oh so many more to go, good thing I love making Christmas cards right?
Thanks so much for stopping in and checking out the blog today. I hope you get to do something for yourself.
This is an A2 size card or 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inches. I used a dark brown card base from my stash. I stamped the leaves on the back of the glitter paper and scanned through my Scan N Cut, then I flipped the glitter paper over so the glitter side was facing up and let the machine cut out the images. I stamped the images of the fox and acorn from the stamp set and colored them with Copic markers (colors in the photo below). I didn’t color the leaf of the acorn because I stamped that on the back of the Glitter paper and cut it too.
Once I finished up the images I used the Lawn Fawn Knock on Wood Paper Pad and cut the back panel in orange to 4 X 5 1.4 inches. The turquoise colored piece was 4 X 3/4 inches. The used dies from a Karen Burniston set to cut the yellow background piece and the light brown scalloped edge piece of pattern paper and layered all the pieces onto the card.
I stamped the sentiment on the top of the top panel of the card, adhered the acorn and used foam tape on the fox and placed it on the card.
Hello Everyone! Today I am creating four cards using gift tags from the Kaisercraft Silver Bells tag pack. I thought it would be fun to create four cards that vary in time and/or skill and each one is still a fabulous looking card! In no particular order; I’ll describe how I created each card.
I love adding glitter paper to my Holiday cards. This Sticky Back Silver Glitter paper by Darice comes in 8 1/2 x 11 sheets and is perfect for adding to your cards as a panel. While, I love the glitter paper; I didn’t want it to be the only layer so I created this snowflake panel to play off the snowflakes on the tag. I used a Snowflake embossing folder and Bristol Smooth card stock to create the layer and then added some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink to make the snowflakes pop! The Silver Bells tag packs contain 6 each of 2 designs (12 total) and do come with twine but I chose to dig into my stash and find this really sparkly silver ribbon to use instead. I added the tag with some foam adhesive and all done!
This card is a great layout for needing a card in a pinch. The main panel is pattern paper. I always want to add some sparkle so I trimmed down some Sticky Back Silver Glitter paper by Darice for the left edge. I added some ribbon to the tag and added it to the card using foam tape. Easy, peasy!
I had to add a shaker card to the mix! This tag has so much going on I had a hard time deciding if I wanted to use pattern paper or just use the Gold Glitter paper and….. the Sticky Gold Glitter paper by Darice won! I cut the Gold Glitter paper with a rectangle die and then temporarily adhered a tag where I wanted the shaker window to be. I used a craft knife to cut the Gold Glitter paper around the tag to create my window.
Before removing the backing on the glitter paper, I put the piece on my card base where I wanted it and added the tag to the cardbase through the opening. I then took the backing off the glitter paper – added the acetate and foam tape all around the window opening (which was tricky since now the adhesive on the back was completely exposed). I thought I would like to add a bow to the bottom of my card base so I added the white and gold twine on the back so all I had to do was tie a bow in the front. Next, I sprinkled a sequin pack from my stash all over the tag and carefully laid my panel down.
The twine ended up being too thick to create a nice looking bow – I tried a knot and that seemed too big as well. So I ended up cutting it down and tucking it in behind the panel.
The last card I made involves a stencil and some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse! I taped down the dots stencil and used a palette knife to spread the mousse over the stencil. Once done, I removed the stencil and left the card to dry overnight. To finish the card – I used the piece of Sticky Gold Glitter paper that I cut out of the panel from the previous card an used it as a mat for one of the Silver Bells tags. I added the piece directly to my card front and voila!
