Christmas Card Gifts
I said I would pop back and share with you the card sets that I made to go in my customers Christmas Gift Bags. Each of the cards is created using the Whisper White notecards, which come with matching envelopes.
I found the instructions and the layouts for each of these cards on Pinterest. So lets start with the little box which was shared here by Dawn Griffin. I loved the paper which she used and since I still had some It’s My Party Designer Series Paper (retired) in my stash I used the same paper to create each of my boxes. I created the first box using the same Melon Mambo Designer Series Paper and Melon Mambo and Whisper White card. I went on to create boxes using Mint Macaron and Whisper White card, with Mint Macaron Designer Series Paper, Sahara Sand & Whisper White card with the Confetti Designer Series paper and the last one is Crushed Curry and Whisper White with the Basic Black/Balloon Designer Series Paper. I create four cards to go inside each of the box using all of the Designer Series Paper as the boxes.
The first card has the same banner as Dawns card but I used a different greeting. The end of the Designer Series paper is punched using the Triple Banner Punch. I stamped the greeting from the Balloon Adventures stamp set (from the Occasions Catalogue to be released on the 4th January) onto Whisper White card using Melon Mambo ink and cut out the greeting using the oval Stitched Framelit Die. I attached it to Sahara Sand card cut using a scalloped die from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. The greeting is attached to the card front using dimensionals.
The second card is created using the layout found on this video on Pinterest, once again by Dawn Griffin. I used the same Mint Macaron Designer Series Paper but again I used a different greeting. The greeting from the Balloon Adventures stamp set is stamped onto Whisper White card using Mint Macaron ink and cut out using the square Stitched Framelit Die. The greeting is attached to a Mint Macaron scalloped square framelit from the Layering Squares Dies and then the card front using dimensionals.
The third card comes from a Video on Pinterest by Angie Juda . Once again I have used the same Designer Series paper but a different greeting. This greeting from the Perfectly Wrapped stamp set is stamped onto Whisper White using Sahara Sand ink and cut out using a circle Stitched Framelit Die. The greeting is attached to a Sahara Sand circle scalloped cut out using the Layering Circles Dies and then the card front using dimensionals.
The last card for the set was inspired by this Christmas Card I found on Pinterest by Jo Blackman. I used another of the papers from the same retired Designer Series Paper to cover the lower half of the card front. I stamped the greeting from the Perfectly Wrapped stamp set onto Whisper White card using Crushed Curry in and cut it out using a circle Stitched Framelit Die. I stamped the balloon from the Confetti Celebration stamp set next to the greeting using Sahara Sand ink. The greeting is attached to a Crushed Curry scalloped circle cut using the Layering Circles Dies and then the card front using dimensionals.
I love the way these cards turned out and so did the ladies. Thank you to each of these talented crafters for the ideas and inspiration for my card set. I think I will have to use more of my Designer Series Paper to create these notecard sets in the future.
