CAS Shaker Christmas Card

Hello hello hello… Christmas is coming in 19 days!!! Today I wanna share with you all a CAS Shaker Christmas card. This is fun to make for this Holidays.

To make the shaker box, I used the 2 sizes of the Oval Scalloped Framelit Die. I cut the frame out of heavy weight white cardstock and added the clear plastic on the back of it. After that, I added foam tape around the frame and then I added some of the start sequins.

I cut out Deck The Halls Paper (also included in the Merry & Bright Variety Pack) with one of the scallop die and then I added it (the snowflake pattern side on the front) on the shaker box as the backing mat. I added the shaker box on the card with permanent adhesive glue and put couple acrylic blocks on it to hold it down while it was drying.

I cut out one of the ornaments form the Deck The Halls Paper for using Joy To The World Die and I added it on the shaker box with permanent adhesive glue.

I stamped and heat embossed the ribbon image from the Joy To The World Stamp Set, and then cut it out with the matching die. I added it on top of the ornament with permanent adhesive glue.

I cut out 3 pieces of the word Christmas using the Merry Christmas Die. I stacked the word die cuts together with permanent adhesive glue to make it as word chipboard. I added on the card with permanent adhesive glue and 3D foam tape.

I hope this give you an idea to make Holidays card for your friends and families. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. Have a Merry and Bright Season!

CAS Mini Slimline Christmas Card

Hello hello hello… December is here… We have started to decorated the house and it begins to look a lot like Christmas here…

I am making Christmas cards for friends and families for the Holidays and I like to make them in a batch of cards. Clean and Simple is a good style. Today, I wanna share this CAS mini slimline Christmas card idea with you all.

They are very quick and easy to make. I used one of the Merry and Bright Variety Paper Pack. This paper pack is just like what its name. The papers are so beautiful and perfect for making Christma cards.

I stamped the sentiments couple times on a white cardstock with my Mini MISTI with VersaFine Clair Verdant Ink pad couple times. After that, I cut it with the label die from Wavy Slimline Framelit Dies. I added it on the card with 3D foam tape, and I trimmed the extra off the edge.

They were done in less than 15 minutes. I need to make more…

Stencil Challenge | Sending You Christmas Cheer

Hello December… The merriest month has arrived! We are ready for this joyous holidays here in my house… How about you?

Sending out handmade cards is one of the way we can send Christmas sheer with others. Here’s an idea for a mini slimline Christmas card:

I made this card using:

I used the stencil with metallic paper with Ghost ink to make the grundy metallic background. And then I trimmed it and added it on the card with permanent adhesive runner.

And then, I stamped one of the deer image on a white cardstock with the VersaFine Clair Nocture ink pad and then fussy cut it with scissors.

I stamped the sentiment on a white cardstock with VersaFine Clair Glamorous ink pad and then trimmed it into the sentiment label.

I added the sentiment on the card with permanent adhesive runner and then I added the deer with 3D foam tape.

This is pretty easy and quick card to make for the Holidays. I hope this card sparks an idea for your.

This card is very simple and quick to make. I started with I taped the stencil directly on the kraft card using washi tapes. And then, lightly I added the white pigment ink on it with oval blending brush. After that, I removed the stencil. I added some gold watercolor ink splatters on the card with fan brush. I flicked the paint very lightly to get fine and small splatters. I dried the background card with the craft heater.

I printed the digital stamp on white cardstock and then I dried the printer ink with craft heater. I colored it with watercolor paints and waterbrush. After coloring, I dried the watercolor paint with craft heater and then I fussy cut it with scissors. I added the bucket of apple image on the card with permanent adhesive runner glue.
