Christmas Mini Card Holder

Well it sure has been awhile since I have posted.  I was in a car accident in late August and have been home recovering. Let’s just say life has been a struggle. Now I don’t want you all thinking I have fallen off the face of the earth and forgotten about you all, so I am going to take a couple minutes a few times a week to share with you projects I have made that I didn’t get a chance to share with you yet.

As you may well know, we are almost halfway through the Holiday Catalogue and there are some super fun products available. I couldn’t wait to share with you the super fun Pizza Box! This box perfectly fits 3 x 3 cards, which also leads me to share that 3 x 3 envelopes are available in the Holiday Catalogue.  Now how awesome is that! 

I have used A LOT of new products for todays creations and I have no doubt that you are going to fall in love with at least one of these items. 

We have Merry Music Designer Series Specialty Paper (144623), and Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack (144638), Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack (144636), Mini Pizza Boxes (144645), Foil Snowflakes (144642) and 3 x 3 Whipser White Envelopes (145829).  Just a few new items, right?

Let me tell you, there were so many more items in the Holiday Catalogue on my wish list but I simply couldn’t get them all ….right away LOL  

The Pizza Boxes are the perfect size to hold 3 x 3 cards, which means you can create the perfect little gift sets for your friends.  The pizza boxes comfortably fit 5 mini cards and envelopes and are great to alter and embellish for the right occasion.  By using the Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack, I was able to quickly and easily create and assemble these little beauties.

Are you ready to get crafty with these awesome products?

Thumping Thursday – Petal Garden

August isn’t over and yet our temps are already dipping into single digits at night.  I had to wear a jacket over my sweatshirt this morning when I took the dogs out.  Doesn’t quite seem right to be this cold already but this is one of the wonders and beauty of the changing seasons.

So today I am bringing you a quick card created with the help of the Petal Garden Card Pack.

  • Old Olive card base – cut at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″ along the length and folded in half
  • Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to back of desired Petal Garden Card pack card and attach to card base
  • With the Big Shot, die cut the word ‘love’ using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits die from Gold Foil paper
  • With Tombow Multi-Purpose Glue, attach the die cut word to your card front

 

Seriously, that’s it.  That is how fast you can put together this card.
