How to make a Warm & Cozy Snowflake Christmas Card 

using the Sweater Embossing Folder* from Sizzix* and Eileen Hull.

I have a “thing” for cable-knit sweaters. (just ask my family)

So it comes as no surprise how much I love this new embossing folder.

It’s perfect for creating quick and easy cards.

Warm & Cozy Embossed Sweater Card

Directions:

  • To create the embossed sweater layer, place a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of cream cardstock into the Sweater Embossing Folder*.  Place the embossing folder onto the Sizzix Big Shot* platform.   Crank the handle of the Big Shot* to run the embossing folder through the machine.
  • Adhere the embossed layer onto the blueberry cardstock layer. Adhere those layers onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ cream cardstock base.
  • Add adhesive to the back of the wood snowflake and adhere to the front of the card. Add the adhesive pearl to the center of the snowflake.
  • Tie a small bow and glue it onto the top of the snowflake.
  • Using a computer generated font, print the words “warm & cozy” onto a piece of cream cardstock.  Cut the cardstock into a strip with a v notch on each end. Place thin foam mounting squares under the cardstock strip and add to the front of the card under the wood snowflake.

FYI…This is a thick card.  You will need extra postage to mail it.  (It might be best to hand deliver.)

Card Details….

  • To make my snowflake stand out more. I took a small piece of white ultra metallic glitter vinyl and adhered it to a piece of cream cardstock before die-cutting the snowflake. You can’t tell by the picture, but the snowflake has a glittery shimmer.
  • I like to use the Xyron Create-A-Sticker*to add adhesive on the back of the gold cardstock before die-cutting the letters.  It makes assembling the card a breeze.
  • The finished card size is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.

Simple Vintage Christmas Cards

Simple Vintage Christmas Cards

Last week-end at my annual Holiday Workshop we made several Christmas cards using the

“Simple Vintage Christmas” Collection from Simple Stories.

I’m a big fan of vintage Santa’s and fell in love with this collection.

It was so much fun to work with.

I was able to keep the cards fairly simple with only a few embellishments and ribbons

because the images were so beautiful.

I picked up the cute snowflake embellishments at Hobby Lobby.

This one I made into a gift card holder.

Simple Vintage Christmas is a great Holiday Collection.

Christmas Tree Card

christmas-tree-card-sues-creative-workshop-2755

Although I don’t always send a ton of handmade Christmas cards out, I do enjoy making them.

The Christmas Tree card was made using paper and stickers from Paper House Productions.

I love how the playful plaids blend perfectly together to form a Traditional Christmas feel

in this layered card.  Enjoy!  (makes me feel like singing “O’ Christmas Tree…”)

 

To make the card you’ll need:         (*affiliate links)

christmas-tree-card-assembling-the-layers-sues-creative-workshop

Directions:

  1. Cut a 4 1/2″ x 6″ piece of “red flannel” paper.  Hold the edge of the paper against the nib of the gold calligraphy marker to add a thin gold border on the edge of the paper.  Adhere the red flannel layer onto a 4 3/4″ x 6 1/4″ piece of black cardstock.
  2. Adhere the red flannel and black layers onto a 5″ x 6 1/2″ green card base.
  3. Cut the “deck the halls” paper (green plaid) using the “labels twenty two” die.  Add a thin gold border around the edge of the label like in step #1.  Adhere the green plaid label onto a 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ gold metallic cardstock layer.
  4. Cut a decorative square using the “captivating square” die and a piece of green cardstock.  Adhere the green plaid label and gold metallic square onto the top of the decorative square.
  5. Adhere the green and gold layers onto the bottom portion on the red flannel layer, leaving even spacing on the bottom three sides.
  6. Assemble the pine swag  using the 3D stickers and glue onto the top of the card.  (picture below)
  7. Finish embellishing the front of the card with the 3D Christmas Tree sticker and a couple of red adhesive rhinestones.
