Vintage Santa

I have Christmas card to share today, a card I made with beautiful paper crafting products from Classy Cards 'n Such store! I wanted to make an elegant, neutral colored card that would work well for both a man and a woman. I used beige tones, mixing matte and metallic cardstocks to achieve a classic design.



Supplies
Spellbinders New Fancy Label Tags Two
Our Daily Bread Designs Vintage Flourish Pattern
Spellbinders Decorative Labels Thirty-Four
Baby Pearls - LeCreme

I started off by printing a vintage Santa image on Pearl White Linen cardstock. Then I added glitter glue to make the Christmas tree image stand out. I then die cut the image with Spellbinders Fancy Label Tags Two. I mounted the image on another label die cut with Spellbinders Decorative Labels Thirty-Four.

To decorate my card base I added a gorgeous frame die cut with Our Daily Bread Designs' Vintage Flourish set. I adhered two smaller die cuts from Fancy Label Tags Two to the top and bottom of the frame and added a piece of beige ribbon on the center vertically. Finally I mounted the labels and embellished the image with four Baby Pearls Le Creme.

As always I hope you liked what I created and I invite you to browse Classy Cards 'n Such store to check out the supplies used. Remember to take advantage of my discount code Gracie-10 to get 10% off your total purchase on your next order (clearance products included).

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home.

White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with youHERE.


I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …

Pears & Flowers Step Card

You may know by now that I try to make time to create projects for some of my favorite challenges. I particularly enjoy the challenges back at the Mod Squad Challenge. This week the host is Lee... She is a great host... Love her! She challenged us to use something with a Fruit or Harvest theme... Yes, it's a Fruitful Harvest challenge!

I really wanted to create something special for Lee, so I took my time. Here is my design:




I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and two pears in gold. The first are from Flourishes' Over the Garden Gate stamp set, and the last are from Inky Antics' Holy Spirit's Fruit.

I colored the images with alcohol markers. Next I fuzzy cut and sponged them with a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.

I also heat embossed a sentiment from Flourishes' Spring Bouquet stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders French Frills set and sponged it very lightly, also with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I embellished the label altering anoth…
