There’s a lot of dimension on this tag. 

  • I used white letters which are dye-able. I mixed a drop of ink into a mini spray bottle filled with water and spritzed the letters to tint them.
  • Emboss your cardstock, trim part of it into a tag shape, and punch a circle from another part. Glue the letters onto the circle – use the couple’s last name in the center and their first names on the sides.
  • Die-cut a decorative border for the circle. Use the foam squares to adhere the circle to the tag and embellish with a mini flower and trim.
  • You can find Joy® embroidered, iron-on numbers and letters on sheets or individually in a variety of fonts, colors and sizes at your local craft store.

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)

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.

Pretty Pink Rose Card

Pretty Pink Rose Card 7594

The challenge, this week, for the Paper House Production Design Team

was to create something using their 3D stickers.  They have so many beautiful dimensional stickers

it was hard to choose.

The inspiration for this card came from a small picture frame picked up at Michael’s one spot.

The frame spoke to my soft feminine “girly” side.

The pretty pink rose used on my card comes from the Sisters 3D sticker sheet.
