First Frost Holiday Card

First Frost Holiday Card

Hi Everyone! Here’s another card from my local card class this week. This card uses First Frost Bundle. What I love about this bundle is it’s versatility! It goes beyond the holidays so it’s a great value.

I had a hard time capturing how gorgeous this card is! The white is Shimmery White Cardstock. It has a subtle glitter to it. But you can still stamp full images on it. AND Frosted Florals Specialty Designer Paper has a pearl gloss..another GORGEOUS paper that goes past the holidays and into other winter cards.

Measurements for cardstock and designer paper:

  • Mint Macaroon: 4-1/4″ x 11″, scraps for die cutting
  • Shimmery White: for inside 4″ x 5-1/4″, scraps for die cutting
  • Whisper White: 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
  • Frosted Florals Specialty Designer Paper: 4″ x 5-1/4″

General Instructions:

Stamp and/or die cut elements for card front. Stamp inside images. Add to card! TIP! When stamping the florals on the Shimmery White, stamp off  once or twice (ink, stamp on scrap paper once or twice then stamp onto element.)

Snowflake Showcase Meets Merry Merlot

Snowflake Showcase Meets Merry Merlot

Hi Everyone! This is one of my cards for my local card class tomorrow. The card features Snowflake Showcase products – The die and stamps are only available through November 30th! I paired it with the Joyous Noel Designer Paper which was so popular it sold out!

For me, the snowflake is the star of the show and put it front and center. The star is die cut out of Sahara Sand Cardstock and sponged with Copper Shimmer Paint.

The inside of the card is equally beautiful with a 3-D embellishment. For the front of the card, one could take Merry Merlot cardstock and use embossing powder to create the feel of the designer paper.

  • Merry Merlot: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scrap for inside snowflake
  • Sarah Sand: (2) 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″, scraps for front snowflake
  • Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper: Copper scraps for snowflake centers
  • Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Paper (N/A): 4″ x 5-1/2 or substitute Merry Merlot and heat emboss images in copper and white embossing powder

Hi Everyone! OMGoodness I love how cute this matchbook treat holder turned out! I used up some scraps from the Santa’s Workshop Specialty Designer Paper and these ADORBS chocolate Santas.

Here’s what the packaging looks like. You can find the candy at Walmart or Dollar Tree.

Yesterday at our team meeting, we had a treat holder shoe box swap. The Designer Paper Dolls that participated are shown below holding up their project!

Sue designed a cool blue tone snowflake tag, and Rita designed a slider treat holder.

The matchbook I made uses hardly any materials!

Candy Cane Season Card with Attached Candy Cane

Hi Everyone! Here is the 3rd and last card from my November Card class. I absolutely love having a candy cane punch in my punch collection!  And by adding a few inches to the ribbon, it allows a candy cane to be tied to the card!  I think this would be an awesome presentation to hand out in the office or other party gathering.

Santa’s Workshop Card within a Card

Santa’s Workshop Card within a Card

Hi Everyone! This is another card from my November class. It’s a card within a card! When you open it up, it reveals another smaller card. It’s like opening a present!

Then you open it up to reach the sentiment.

It features items from the Santa’s Workshop Suite of products. I made the card using 147815: Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Cards & Envelopes, but they sold out! The pack was very popular. You could recreate with Poppy Parade Cardstock if you wished. If you happen to be lucky and have the pack, this is another way to use your items! I love how Signs of Santa Bundle is so traditionally whimsy! Looking at this set and what we create with it makes me happy!

147811: Santa’s Workshop Enamel Elements was also used on the card and are also sold out. But again, if you got them early, here’s a way to use them 🙂 You could easily substitute with Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets 147801 – Use Stampin’ Blends to make whatever color you wish!

Material Measurements:

Santa’s Workshop Specialty Designer Paper: 6″ x 4″ and 4″ x 3″

Whisper White: 4-3/4″ x 3″

General Instructions: Layer Santa’s Workshop Specialty DP on card front.With Layering Ovals Framelits, die cut oval to be used as mask. Mask over whisper white and lightly sponge Pool Party ink. Stamp sentiment and Candy Cane Season snowflakes (. Die cut images from Santa’s Workshop Specialty DP with Santa’s Signpost’s Framelits or you can fuzzy cut (trim). Add to front. Stamp snowflakes on inside of card. Add Santa’s Workshop DP on smaller notecard and add images. Adhere to inside of card and stamp inside.

I love, love, love how the dies work with both the stamp set and the paper! So whether you want to color or simply die cut, it’s a magical set of products!
