Christmas tree cards

Hello and happy Thursday! Today´ s cards are done using a Elizabeth Craft Designs die cut dies as a starting point.

I first die cut the tree with a tree die cut die and then used a rectangular stitched die to create the white focal point area. I matted the die cut tree area with a recycled Christmas present tag piece and adhered everything on a blue patterned paper and added the Klartext stamped sentiment.

For the second card I used the same dies and added a piece of shiny / holographic paper underneath. Then I added a scalloped frame and a Klartext stamped sentiment onto the card. The background paper is from the Vicki Boutin Warm Wishes collection. On top of the holographic paper I added some liquid pearls in red – you can see them better in the second photo :). It is quite hard to take a photo of this type of paper…

I am really enjoying recycling bits from last year (yes, I save lots of things for later…) and reusing them on new cards. I mean, why not?

This is all for today. See you again tomorrow!

Green, red and white Xmas card

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I am stopping by to share another Christmas card with you. This time I again reused/recycled a present tag into the card and combined that with some Canvas Corp papers from my stash.

It´ s a very simple card with the bold background paper and the bold green burlap piece. I just needed to add the present tag Santa on top and a half pearl to his hat and finish the card off with a Klartext stamp sentiment.

This card just makes me happy and smile when I see it. I hope the recipients with think the same :). I am sticking to simple cards this year :). Have you ever recycled bits of Christmas present tags/packaging/cards?

Wishing you a nice week!
Take care,

Christmas cards 2022 – Set 4

Hello and happy Saturday! Today I am sharing yet another set of Christmas cards. This time done solely using the Vicky Boutin Warm Wishes collection.

For the background I used the gorgeous pink and red polka dotted paper. I really like these two colours together! As a centerpiece on both cards I used a journaling card from the same paper collection and on the upper one also added a Christmas bauble from the same collections chipboard stickers. The ribbon on the back is from my own stash.

For this card I did the same steps, except I did a bow from the ribbon and added half pearls to the journaling card for extra decor.

These two cards are my favorites from this season so far! I hope I could inspire you abit with simple and easy-to-make Christmas card ideas, too. Have a great weekend and take care,

Christmas cards 2022 – Set 2

Hello everyone and happy Thursday! Today I am sharing a second set of Christmas cards, created using Vicky Boutin Warm Wishes collection papers and Klartext stamps.

On this card I used a premade card base as my background, added some Distress Oxide stamping with a Klartext stamp and a black bolder sentiment stamped with Versafine ink. The 3D Chipboard sticker is also from the Warm Wishes collection.

For my second card I combined the Warm Wishes collection papers and Chipboard stickers and added some dimension with 3D foam and some cute dots with Liquid pearls by Ranger Inc. Stamping is again done with Klartext stamps.

For my last card I used older product from my stash, a Elizabeth Craft Designs die cut die and paper as well as a Klartext stamp. The shiny dots are done with Stickles by Ranger Inc.

It´ s good to finally have some Christmas cards done. Hope your week is getting along nicely! Take care,

Christmas cards 2022 – Set 1

Hello there! It is again that time of the year – time for Christmas card shares ;-). Here is the first set I did:

I went with very simple CAS style this time mainly, because I wanted to use up product from last years. The background paper is by Canvas Corp Brands and the tag I don´ t even remember where I got it from. But I like the combo of black and green with red together. The stamp is by Klartext and the dots are done with liquid pearls. The chipboard sticker is by Vicky Boutin.

Here the background paper is by Vicky Boutin and Canvas Corp Brands. The puffy star is by Fancy Pants. I really like the black for Christmas this year or some reason.

And lastly, this card is also done with Vicky Boutin papers and the journaling card was in my stash, but I really can´ t remember who it is by. The little decor on the left top corner is by Canvas Corp Brands and colored with Neocolor 2´ s.

My goal making these cards was clearly stash busting. But I also really enjoyed creating simple, flat Christmas cards that are easy to mail.

Hope you liked these ideas 🙂 – have you started on your card creating yet?
