Christmas Envelope Cards

One day while deep in holiday card making I got an inspiration. I wanted to try some red envelopes and make some card that can hold gift cards, notes and even pictures.

After playing around with some ideas this is what I came up with. To see how to create these see my old post. Envelope Card Tutorial

Used Echo Park pp on white cs and 2 red envelopes, Added pop dots and red glitter paper, green glitter leaves, ribbon and the chipboard sentiment.

Thanks for looking!

Winter White Bridal Cards

Happy Sunday! Hope all is well for you and your family. Recently, I was asked to make a bridal shower card. Yippee! I love weddings and creating for that special time of life. Plus, it was a nice break from all the Christmas cards I have been working on. :)

I loved using this special pearlized paper I got earlier this year. Then, I placed it on a cream colored pearlized card stock. Also, used the pretty vellum paper on the outside and inside. I wish you could see how beautiful that floral vellum is. The ribbon was so pretty with this. It was the icing on the cake. Love how it all turned out.

So, take a look!

Love adding the floral vellum layer with the cream paper. The pic was better.

Then, I added this extra card for the customer. I had started working on this card months ago and never put a sentiment on it. Just didn't know what to do. Then, as I was working on this other card, inspiration hit and this stamp was the perfect fit and style. I was so happy to finally complete this one.

Love the matching pearlized envelope to match.

Hope you enjoyed checking these cards out. Thanks! Have a good day!

December Card Challenge

Happy December everyone! Can't believe it is almost Christmas. Amazing! Well, the beginning of the month brings my new card challenge over at Scrapping the Moments. This month's challenge is a special project I especially love doing for Christmas. I call it a "Mini Album Card." I love mini albums and decided to use my card "vision" to do something with my supplies.

The challenge is to create one with your own theme, colors and designs. This is a fun little project you can make with your kids or a friend. Once it is personalized this is a terrific gift that someone would cherish!

Ok, here is how I did mine.
  1. I used 1-12x12 cardstock, cut in half into 2-6x6 pieces.
  2. Then I folded each to make 2 cards.
  3. I decorated all the surfaces with patterned paper. 
  4. I love creating the pockets with the tags and the blank red squares for pics. I used pop dots on 3 sides to make the pocket
  5. Finally, I staples the middle to hold it together.
Take a look!

Used Echo Park pp, red cardstock, red glitter cardstock, red glitter tulle, die cuts, and pop dots.

Love using my Spellbinder to make these scalloped pockets.
