Christmas Cards Part the Second – Here’s Three More

16 11 2017
  1. This card was super simple but has a wow effect. If you’re pressed for time, this is a good one to try 🙂 And to help keep it simple and quick, I used my Silhouette Sketch pens for the greeting.img_3526

 

2. This card was supposed to be a trifold card, but I could NOT figure out how to make it work. I ended up taking the pieces apart and layering them with foam tape. And I like how it turned out 🙂

3. This card was old school stamping and card assembly for me 🙂 I used a Stampendous stamp, colored with markers and pencils, and used a few metal dies and put everything together.

Christmas Card Making Has Begun

14 11 2017

Last year, my husband asked me to make cards for him to use at work. Challenge accepted!

I’m starting early this year 🙂

I don’t have the attention span to make many of the same design, so card making doesn’t go as fast as it might. But I enjoy it more this way 🙂

So here are the first three 🙂

This one was  quick and simple. I cut out the image and matted it. The “paper” behind it is a pattern from the Silhouette store that I also had my machine print and cut out before layering it all on the card front.

This second one is simple enough, but there’s a tweak. Having the patterns available in the Silhouette Store is great, especially if you’re doing digital work to save a little time (Have I mentioned that I’m a little short on time these days?). But one of the drawbacks is that they’re NOT EDITABLE. For example, you can’t change red and white striped paper to something like the striped paper below…except I did. I figured out how to alter an unalterable item. Maybe some of you already figured out a way to do this, but I’m feeling a little magical right now 😉

For this third one, I pulled out some stamps to help finish things off 🙂 I forgot how much little things like that can add to a card.
