Here is a great project that would make the perfect Christmas Gift for teachers or work colleagues…
Here it is open…
Fill them up with gift tags and you have an easy but handy gift. They were inspired by a gift given to me by Lyanna George at an event held by our Stampin’ Up Team Leader Steph.
Let me know if you would like any further information so that you can make your own.
This card uses Concord Crush and Confetti White. The little snow flakes along the bottom of the card have been stamped in Versamark, sprinkled with Clear Embossing Powder and then heat set. The Concord Crush Ink is sponged over the top using an emboss resist technique (as the ink will not stick to where you have heat embossed). The ribbon hides the space where the sponging ends. The Stamps are from the set “Snow Swirled”, my favourite Christmas Stamp Set. A little basic jewel completes the card. The whole card has been spray with a mixture of Frost White All Purpose Ink and Isocol.
I have kept this card simple as we usually need to make our Christmas Cards in bulk, and very few of us have weeks to devote to the task.
The Christmas Criss Cross Card (wow, what a mouthful). The outside is made from an entire sheet of A4, I have found another way to make it, however it makes the “inner” area smaller, so that you can’t have the insert going to the edges and therefore doesn’t look as nice.
Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Very Vanilla Cardstock have been used, the perfect match to the Jolly Holiday DSP. The stamp on the front is from “Gifted” and we used the markers on the stamp so that we could easily get the two colours. The other stamps are from “Snow Swirled”.
Here is a tutorial if you are interested in making your own…
Please keep in mind that it is American Card Size measurements. If you would like to modify it back to our measurements in Australia then you would intially cut down the length of an A4 piece of cardstock at 10.5 cm and then score each one at the A5 mark (which is about 14.8cm).
This card uses the versatile set “Circle Circus”, which is not a Christmas Set but I think it works well with this card. Circle Circus is not available any more but there are plenty of stamps that would work well.
This quick card is based on one that I loved by Julie, you will see that I modified the card, I have changed the stamps to “Delicate Doilies” as I always love using non-Christmas stamps for Christmas Cards. It shows how versatile our Stampin’ Up! stamps can be, thereby giving you great value for money.
I love using the rosette die and can’t wait to show more of you how easy it is to achieve a great result with the Rosette Die, a Silicone Craft Sheet and a glue gun.
Hope you like it!
