This week my 21 yo son asked me to help him make a Christmas card for his girlfriend. He looked through my samples and decided on the Lovely As A Tree starry night card. (See details and video tutorial for making this card here.) We finally sat down to create the card yesterday, on Christmas day.
Here’s his version.
Somehow he got a couple of smudges on it, but I think he was happy with the results nonetheless.
This would make a wonderful winter thank you card too: just change the sentiment. And with all the gifts given and received this week, you may need some thank you cards. 😉
Christmas Trees have certainly been a theme this holiday season on StampingJulie.com. I’m a little sad to see Christmas coming to an end. I can’t tell you how much fun I have had making Christmas projects to share with you. And with the end of the holiday season comes the end of the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.
Here’s some of the highlights of the Christmas tree cards I’ve shared with you this season:
Another favorite! I love the feel of the paper: it’s so rich feeling after embossing and heat embossing with sparkle. And the tree is cut out of the background with the green polka dot paper peeking out from behind. Glittery Paper Christmas Tree Card
I’ve had lots of questions about creating this starry night background for this card – Lovely As A Tree Starry Night Christmas Card. So I have a video tutorial for you today! I’ll walk you through creating the watercolor background and stamping and embossing the tree and the starry sky.
Today I wanted to show you how to make the Top Note Purse Gift Card Holder that I showed you a few days ago. I’ve recopied the supply list below or you can go to the original post to view more written instructions and pictures. I hope you enjoye this tutorial!
Top Note elf shoes Christmas card – love 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.
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.
