Christmas Cards 2013 #10

For today’s post, I would like to share some of those that I’m really pleased with.

I really love how the gold and red came together in this card. The words were actually printed on a 12×12 paper and I cut it out to the size of the card stock. The red strip of paper that I pasted on the top and bottom of the words are from K&Company – Yuletide adhesive borders. I took one of it and cut in through the middle, placing them separately. The embellishments are from Ruby, Rock-it – Joyeux Noel.

This is one of the cutest card I made. The font I used was One Starry Night and printed it together with a speech bubble. From there, gold glitter glue was used to go around the speech bubble to make the card pop. ((: I cut the paper out from a 12×12 paper too and pasted the birds on. I got the chipboard where the birds came from a long time ago, so I can’t find them online anymore.

I know my stamping is a total failure (as can be seen from how uneven the letterings are), but I really like the simplicity of this design. The candy cane is from Ruby, Rock-it – Joyeux Noel and gold glitter glue was used for the borders.

I have to say that I really like the Ruby, Rock-it – Joyeux Noel Layered Accents! The two flowers for this card is also from that packet, though I added pearl embellishments in the center of them for this card. The sentiment in the middle is from echo park paper co. – Tis the Season collection.

So, these are the cards that I’m quite proud of, and I hope they will inspire you too!

Christmas Cards 2013 #7

I’m back with a few more cards to share today!

This is the first one that I attempted, with this simple design. I printed the words Merry Christmas with the font Volutes. The stripe across the card is from Carta Bella Winter Fun collections – the Winter Borders paper. The Christmas tree die-cut is from Creative Imagination Art Warehouse by Danelle Johnson – the Holly Jolly collection die-cut. I really liked how simple this card looked and so, along those lines, I got this!

This font is One Starry Night. The star sticker is from Craft n Craftin’, which I had for a number of years (so I can’t find the link now). After this, I did another!

This time, I used a chipboard sticker with a sentiment already printed from echo park paper co. – Reflections Christmas collection. The border was done with red glitter glue and the strip across was using the silver chevron paper I mentioned in my previous post.

So these are the cards that I would like to share today. Hope you enjoyed them and even attempt them. ((:

Christmas Cards 2013 #4

I’m back with another 2 christmas cards to share! I’m sharing them at the same time as they are similar and I used the same silver background. HEE!

IMG_9932

I used the silver chevron paper I got from Amy Tangerine and you’ll see bits and pieces of it around my other cards too. I really love how versatile it is and how it suits my needs for my christmas cards. So anyways, I kept this card pretty simple. The snowman is from { my mind’s eye } Winter Wonderland series. The word ‘magic’ is from Studio Calico and ‘season’ is from an alphabet sticker I’ve had for awhile in my collection.

For this other card, I used the snowman tag from something I got a few years back, so I can’t seem to find it online anymore. And I pasted the alphabet stickers on top for the sentiment.

These cards are fairly easy to do. I hope you all like it and would find some inspiration! ((:

Christmas Cards 2013 #3

For the card(s) that I have to share today, I actually saw the design from somewhere awhile back. I think it’s from Anthropologie or Rifle Paper Co, but I can’t seem to find it on their website anymore. Anyways, when I saw the design I really liked it, but as I have terrible handwriting, I have been procrastinating about making it into a card on my own. But I’ve finally found the courage and here they are.

First Attempt

First Attempt

So I basically wrote out the words roughly with a pencil, then go over it with a black fine point Sharpie pen. But I realised that the lines don’t seem to flow nicely cause they weren’t drawn over too well. And so, I decided to go over it with the gold glitter glue. It made it look much better and I really liked the effect, though it’s still no where near perfect.

And in my attempt to perfect it…

Second Attempt

Second Attempt

I wasn’t too pleased with the spacing of my lines at the end. So…

Third Attempt

And then I thought… This is actually my lowest cost card and since I like the design so much…

Fourth Attempt

HAHA! This one I had the most difficulty with, the spacing gave me a headache and I re-sketched quite a number of times. But as you can see, it is still no where perfect. But anyways, I still like it a lot.

So I hope you all like this design as much as I do and try it out sometime! ((:
