Glitter in silver and gold

Posted by Susan on Wednesday, December 24, 2014 in ,

Another goal for this years cards was to use up old stashes. Despite really wanting to delve into new paper stacks, I resisted the urge and used up ghosts of Christmas paper past. That lead to me to digging up some of my other supplies I hadn't used in a while, including my glitter ritz!

These are two cards I made in the same style. Adding a little glitter and sparkle to a relatively simple card turned out really well, and they were both super simple to make.

Here is another simple Christmas Card that met my goal of making mail-able Christmas cards. It doesn't hurt that it's red, and red IS my favourite colour.

Joy Card

Posted by Susan on Tuesday, December 23, 2014 in ,
I had a goal this year of making Christmas cards that could travel through the mail easily, without needing padded envelopes or extra postage. To that end, I saw some cards on Pinterest that had this unique two piece cover joined by either large letters or images, so I decided to give it a try.

This card didn't turn out as well as I had hoped. It looks ok, but getting the letters to stick well was difficult. I tried a variety of adhesives and some worked better than others, but in the end I was somewhat disappointed. For me, it's a little plain - but the paper is so pretty. It actually has a little shimmer to it which is hard to capture on camera.

Happy Holidays Tag Card

Posted by Susan on Monday, December 22, 2014 in ,
So apparently the post-Halloween wrap up and pre-Christmas ramp up have kept me insanely busy - which is why I was terribly behind this year on cards, decorating, shopping, wrapping and baking!

However, I did finally get the cards out in the mail and hopefully they will make it to everyone on time. Here is my first Christmas Card of the season.


This is a fun card because it's so bright and cheery and doesn't use the typical Holiday colours. I hope you all like it.

Supplies:

Paper - Creative Imaginations Glitter Ritz Sookwang Double Sided Tape Punch - Stampin' Up Ribbon - Unknown Stamp - Stampin' Up
