All Wrapped Up Christmas Card!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a super cute card that is quick and easy to make! This card was inspired by one of the sentiments from Itty Bitty Christmas, which I used for the card front. This is another fun card using just about all of one sheet from the Wrapped in Plaid 6” x 6” DSP to create, which I’ll give you one other way to use part of this DSP at the end of this tutorial.

To start, cut this design from the DSP, ¾” from one side, turn 90 degrees and cut at 4”. This will give you one piece at ¾” x 6”, one piece at 4” x 5 ¼”, and one piece at 2” x 5 ¼”. The 4” x 5 ¼” will be the base layer:

For the card front you will need:

1. Two piece of Shaded Spruce/Gold Striped Ribbon, long enough to go across the DSP vertically and horizontally.

2. Enough ribbon to create a double bow, if you are not sure how, check out this helpful video here.

3. About 6” of Linen Thread.

4. A 1 ¼” x 1 ¼” piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink.

5. Cut a 1 ½” piece of Gold Foil sheet, punch one end with the Detailed Tag Topper Punch, adhere the sentiment piece, trim off excess foil sheet with snips or paper trimmer.

Adhere the ribbon across the DSP like a present:

Tie the Linen Thread thru the tag hole, tie into a knot, and adhere the sentiment to the DSP, laying the thread across the middle of the ribbon:

Adhere the double ribbon with glue dots in the middle of the ribbon pieces, also securing the thread, trim off any extra thread. This completed piece is adhered to a Shaded Spruce cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink, and adhere the ¾” strip of DSP across the bottom, trimming off any extra:

Isn’t this a super cute card that is so easy to make?? This is a great way to use up your ribbon!! So, now you see that I did not use the 2” strip of DSP on this card, how would you use it? On your envelope!! I always decorate my envelopes and if you have the Beautiful Layers Dies, then you know that there is a die that will cut the DSP to fit perfectly on the flap of the envelope! Don’t have this die set? You can easily trim the DSP to fit the envelope flap!

Happy Fall Harvest Card!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and colorful fall themed card! Have you checked out the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks in the 2019 Holiday Catalog? I used one of those masks to create this colorful background and combined it with stamps and dies from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog! When I first created this background layer, I was really just experimenting with the masks to see what I could create with them, and since I liked this one so much, I completed a card with it! 

The base layer is Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. I first colored the cardstock with Sponge Brayers and Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, and Merry Merlot inks. I then placed the mask with the trees on top (use a piece of tape to secure the mask) and then used a Sponge Brayer with Early Espresso ink to color in the trees:

For the card front you will need:

1. Enough Linen Thread to tie around the base layer three times.

2. Stamp the sentiment in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and then cut out with the second smallest rectangle die from the Rectangle Stitched Framelits.

3. Use the detailed leaf die from Seasonal Layers to cut out three leaves, one each from Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, and Merry Merlot cardstocks. Place a 4mm Gold Glitter Enamel Dot at the base of each leaf:

First start with wrapping the thread around the base layer three times, secure to the back with Snail, the sentiment is adhered on top of the thread with dimensionals and each of the leaves are adhered with a glue dot:

This completed piece is adhered to an Early Espresso cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Early Espresso ink and the small leaves in Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, and Merry Merlot ink:

Isn’t this a stunning card that is so easy to make? I just love the colors used for this card and it was so easy to tie all of them together for the front and inside of the card! Decorative Masks are really a fun and easy way to create a background and then just add a sentiment!
