Christmas card set III – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello lovelies and happy Saturday!!! Today I´m sharing my final set of Christmas cards, created with the Wild Hare Kits December kit.

For this set I´ve used mainly the patterned papers from my December kit: Pink Paislee Together For Christmas, Crate Paper Snowflake and Heidi Swapp Winter Wonderland collections.

For this card I arranged both the Pink Paislee and the Heidi Swapp paper onto the background, then added a few stirps of the Heidi Swapp collection washi tape and finished the card off with a piece of Crate Paper collection paper, adhered on place with 3D foam.

For the second card I used the beautiful patterned paper from the Crate Paper collection and added a stickers from the same collection sticker sheet on top and finished the card off with faux stitching.

And for the last card I used one of the Pink Paislee collection papers on the background, then added a focal point from the Crate Paper collection paper into the middle with 3D foam and decorated it with a piece of ribbon.

That´s all for today. Tomorrow I´ll be sharing another layout, created with my December kit. So if you want to see it, do stop by :)!

Happy crafting,

More Christmas cards – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello lovelies and happy Friday!!! Today I´m again sharing another set of Christmas cards that I created using my The Wild Hare Kits December kit.

Here is what I did:

I kept my cards very clean and simple for a change! And I love how they turned out, even though I just used a few things on them!

For this card I again used the beautiful stickers from the Crate Paper Snowflake collection and added some stamping with the stamp set from the same collection. Easy, fun and simple!

For the second card I used the Crate Paper Snowflake collection ephemera pieces and a few stickers from the Snowflake sticker sheet. Just adhered everything on place, added the faux stitching and the card was done! Soooo easy!

And for the last card in this set I did the same like on the previous one. I love that little snowman image, it´s sooo cute!

So that´s it for today. There is one more set of cards coming up tomorrow, so if you want to see them, do stop by! And then there are still two more layouts coming up, before I´ll share my monthly kit wrap up on the 31st!

Happy crafting!

A set of Christmas cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone, it´s my last guest blog post time over at Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today and I´m sharing a set of clean and simple Xmas cards over there. I created quite a few Christmas cards this year, but I still ran out of them, so I needed a few simple, fast and easy ideas to create a few more. So for these cards I deciced to use mainly just the die cut dies and colored cardstock. So if you are looking for fast-to-make cards, this might be exactly what you are looking for.

Here is how I created the cards:

  1. Die cut Soft Finish Cardstock with die cut dies of your choice.
  2. Arrange onto card bases and adhere.
  3. Stamp the sentiment.
  4. Decorate with liquid or glitter pearls. Done!

For the above card I also used a small piece of patterned paper, because it reminded me of snowfall. But you could also use colored cardstock (blue) instead and adherd the die cut snowflakes on place.

I´ve also recorded a start-to-finish video of the steps for you to watch! I hope you enjoy watching it and give this idea a try!

This is my last guest blog post and it has been such a joy creating with and for Elizabeth Craft Designs the past year. I hope you have enjoyed my bi-montly projects and got inspired to create a card or two!

Wishing you all a lovely holiday season and
happy crafting,

Clean and simple Christmas shaker cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everybody, it´s my turn again today to share another guest design team project over at Elizabeth Craft Designs blog with you. For today´s post I have prepared a set of clean and simple style Christmas shaker cards with a photo step-by-step tutorial. I wanted to create simple looking, yet sparkly cards and this is what I ended up creating.

Here is how I created the cards:

Take a sheet of white Soft Finish Cardstock and cut it into two card base sizes you have prepared for cardmaking. Then place the white cardstock pieces into your die cutting machine and die cut a Fitted Star and a Fitted Circle with it. Place the die cut centered, but onto the upper part of the cardstock piece. Then die cut.

Next die cut from the residue sheet of white Soft Finished Cardstock some rows of houses using the Village Edges die cut die set. The images don´t have to be perfect all the way to the end, because you will only be using parts of them.

Now grab some Distress Oxides of your choice (I used Peacock Feathers and Fossilized Amber) and apply the oxide with an ink blending tool with circular motion onto the white card base background approximately to the area where the star and the circle will be. This way you create a coloured background to that area.

Then stamp a sentiment with black ink under the star and the circle areas. I used the Winter Sentiments clear stamp set here, but you can pick a sentiment set of your choice.

Now arrange the rows of houses under the star and the circle areas and adhere on place. You could also totally stop here and adhere the pieces together or you can follow the step to create shaker cards.

Here is an image of how I adhered the rows of houses onto the card.

Next apply Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto the background of the die cut piece and then cut a piece of transparent acetate and place it on top of the adhesive.

For the next step, take some 3D foam and apply it aroud the edges of the card as well as around the circle and star image to create a place where to apply the confetti later. Make sure there are no open areas between the foam pieces in the area you are going to place the confetti into later, otherwise the confetti will move to areas you don´t want it to be in.

Now take confetti of your choice and place it onto the inked area of the card base. Then attach the 3D foam treated piece on top and press on place. Add faux stitching around the edges of the cards and if you want to, also around the die cut circle and star area.

Here are the finished cards. I think they turned out really nice.

I hope you have enjoyed today´s Christmas card tutorial. I´ll be stopping by the blog once more this year in December to share my last guest blog post.

See you then! Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
