Sweet Essentials Folded Christmas Tree Card

Folded Christmas Tree Card

Sweet Essentials Folded Christmas Tree Card

I made this folded Christmas tree card with non-Christmas paper¬†in non-traditional colors.¬† ūüôā¬† It’s a very simple card.¬† The folded tree is made the same way as the folded Christmas tree gift card I showed you last month.¬† This tree was made with a larger, scallop circle and I added a bit to make it symmetrical.

Here’s a video on folding the Christmas tree and creating the folded scallop tree.¬† Click here or here http://youtu.be/OG-cZTbYXC4¬†to view it.

I¬†started with¬†the Scallop Circle Bigz Die and the Big Shot Die-cutting Machine to create the large¬†circle out of Birds of a Feather Designer Series Paper.¬†¬†¬†Stampin’ Up!’s double-sided paper is perfect for this folded tree.¬† A bit of glitter was added to the scallops with 2-way Glue and Dazzling Diamonds glitter.¬† Grab some paper and just follow the directions on the video to make your trees!

The card base is Crumb Cake cardstock and the sentiment from the Sweet Essentials stamp set was stamped in matching Island Indigo ink.  I tied a knot of satin ribbon around the middle, added the tree with dimensionals behind it, adhered the Silver Glimmer star and a bit of matching Summer Starfruit cardstock for the tree base.

Make A Santa Treat Purse

Petite Purse Santa Christmas Treat Box

I’ve been wanting to create a Christmas Santa Treat Box with the Petite Purse Bigz Die for a long time and I finally came up with a design I like.¬† And I created a video tutorial to share with you how to make¬†this little cutie.

The Santa was made with a¬†lot of punches!¬† I love punches!¬† The beard was created with the 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle punch.¬† The face I made with the Large Oval Punch and the 3/8″ Circle Punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack for the lip and the nose.¬† The mustache is the wing from the Bird Builder Punch.¬† I made the hat with the Petite¬†Pennants Punch, the Large Oval Punch, the Scallop Oval Punch and the Boho Blossom Punch.

Embellished Events Elf Shoes Card

A Top Note Elf Shoes Christmas Card

Embellished Events Elf Shoes Card Top Note elf shoes Christmas card Рlove it!!!  Once again I was inspired by a post on an upline business blog.  And I created a video tutorial to show you how to create your own elf shoes Christmas card.  Or create these whimsical shoes and put them upside down on sticks to place in a center piece or candy jar.

The complete supply list is at the end of this post with links to the product descriptions and pictures.  I started with Gumball Green cardstock that I die-cut with the Top Note  Bigz Die and the Big Shot Die-cutting Machine.  The die is then cut in half from point to point and then each half is cut in half again at the point.

Embellished Events Elf Shoes Card detail

I used the 1-3/8″ and 1″ circle punches to create the shoe.¬† And the 1-1/4″ scallop and 1″ circle punches to create the cuff.¬† The balls on the toes are 3/4″ circles and the striped stocking legs measure 3/4″ x 3-1/2″.¬†¬†¬† Just follow along with the video to learn how to use these tools to create this card.

Stampin’ Up! Top Note Gift Card Purse

Top Note Gift Card Purse with card

I love Stampin’ Up! Big Shot dies!¬† And the Top Note Bigz Die is so versatile.¬† I used it here to create this adorable purse and tucked a gift card in the top.¬† Using dies allows me to make complicated-looking projects in a snap.¬† I created the purse by die-cutting Be of Good Cheer holiday paper in my Big Shot Die-cutting Machine with the Top Note die and then folding it down the top.¬† With a couple of quick snips the purse¬†was complete.¬† Stay tuned this week for a video tutorial on making this cute purse.

Here it is without the gift card:
