And a little favor…

During Week 1 of Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions, the very talented design team of Connie Babbert, me, Elizabeth Price, Debbie Henderson, and Deb Currier shared incredible card sets using holiday sets in the mini and catalog.  I choose Christmas Blessings for my Week 1 set.  Now, it’s Saturday and each team member made a little favor using their featured set and we are sharing these (not the card sets…you have to be a subscriber for those) with everyone.

Mine is soooo simple!  Take a piece of cardstock vellum and cut out a Petite pocket.  Run the front through the Lacey Brocade Embossing folder and put together (the embossing does a nice job of hiding the tape).  I then cut the top flap from a piece of Pink Pirouette Polka Dotted dsp.  I stamped the Poinsettia using versamark on Watercolor paper, embossed in gold, colored with the Pink Pirouette and Primrose Petals markers (and a bender pen), cut with a Window Framelit, punched holes in the side, and tied it around the pocket using Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon and tied with Whisper White Baker’s Twine.  To finish it off I stamped the greeting from Mixed Medley and gold embossed, punched with 3/4″ Circle Punch, layered onto a Pink Pirouette Large Boho Blossom then a 1” Primrose Petals Circle.  This is the perfect size to hold a couple little candy canes!

Christmas Blessings

This was my ‘must have’ Christmas set as soon as I saw it in the new catalog this year.  I just love the open ‘loopy’ look of the images.  (Shhhhh….don’t tell…this is the set that I’m featuring for my card set this week on Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions!).  I thought this set would be just perfect for the color challenge on SCS today to use Cherry Cobbler, Older Olive and Whisper White with a dessert option of silver.

Just a few quick notes on this…the base of the card is Shimmery White (oh…this is just SOOO pretty in real life!).  I took another piece of Shmmery White, ran it through the Lacey Brocade Embossing Folder, layered on Cherry Cobbler then added to the card base using dimensionals.  I cut some banner from a piece of the Cherry Cobbler/White print in Snow Festival and a silver glimmer banner (these using the Bitty Banner framelit, then cut a piece of the Old Olive Scalloped ribbon for my third one.  I added these to the card front.  I cut a piece of watercolor paper using the Apothecary Accents framelits, stamped the poinsettia using StazOn Jet Black, colored with Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive markers (and a blender pen) and added a silver glimmer brad on top.  I added a piece of the Old Olive Scallop ribbon along the side and added the to card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting using Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler markers, cute with the wide oval punch, layered onto a Cherry Cobbler Decorative Label then to the card front.  Oh…such a pretty Christmas card!

When I first saw this stamp set in the new catalog I just fell in love with the pretty images!  I also thought how pretty this would be using just Very Vanilla and gold.  I was fight!  I LOVE how this card turned out.  I did this card for a Control Freak Swap for Christmas cards.

This is one of my favorite things to do with a card…make it look like  an odd size when it is really a normal size card.  The base of the card is 3 1/4 x 11 folder.  I took another piece of Very Vanilla, ran it through the Lacey Brocade Embossing Folder and added to the card front.  I embossed the greeting on the bottom using Gold Embossing Folder.  I took a piece of Champagne Glimmer paper, cut into a banner and added to the card front.  I cut out a panel using the Apothecary Accents framelits, stamped the poinsettia image in Versamark and gold embossed, added a gold brad to the top then added the banner to the card front using dimensionals.

Such a simple card but oh so elegant!
