Winter Slimline Card with Polar Bear

Hello!

Today on my blog I’m sharing a slimline winter card that I made with PolarBears2Stamp and Extras4PolarBear stamp sets from The Stamps of Life. I ink-blended the background and used the star background die that came with the Slimline Card Die Set to create this cute scene.

The Stamps of Life Christmas Tree Fold-it Die Set (4 Cards)
Christmas, Stamps of Life, Winter

Christmas Tree Cards

The Stamps of Life Christmas Tree Fold-it Die Set (4 Cards)Today I’m sharing four cards that I made using The Stamps of Life Christmas Tree Fold-it die set. I purchased this die set from the HSN outlet store when I visited Tampa last month. The die set came with a sentiment stamp set, the Merry collection 6 x 6 patterned paper pad, and embellishments. At the time of this blog post, the Christmas Tree fold-it die set is unavailable to purchase, but The Stamps of Life sells a smaller Christmas tree die set with coordinating stamp set which is just slightly smaller than the one I used for my cards. Many of the same techniques can be used with the smaller Christmas tree die set.

For a video tutorial on all four cards, watch my YouTube video here:

For the card below, I used the Christmas tree fold-it die set to make an A2 sized card. This card opens from the top and fits inside of an A2 size envelope.

The Stamps of Life Christmas Tree Fold-it A2 Sized Card

For the card below, the layers of the Christmas tree were cut out of patterned paper and adhered to the front of an A2 sized card base. A scalloped rectangle was used for the top layer of the card.

The Stamps of Life Christmas Tree Fold-it A2 Sized Card

The card below is a 6 x 6 card with the Christmas tree die cut on the side front panel.

The Stamps of Life Christmas Tree Fold-it

For the card below, I ink blended the Christmas tree using Stamps of Life inks in green apple, kiwi, and artichoke. I adhered the Christmas tree to the top of an A2 size card base. The reindeer is from the MoreReindeer2Stamp set. I colored it with Spectrum Noir markers.

Christmas Cards using Anna Griffin Card Kits

Hello! Today on the blog I want to display the Christmas cards I sent to family and friends this year. I always like to include our family picture in our Christmas cards and the Anna Griffin Christmas Shaker Card Kit made it look like a snow globe. It was super easy to make! There are several different styles of card bases to choose from along with sentiments and other embellishments. The only thing extra you’ll need is some extra strong tape or glue and, of course, a picture of your family (if you choose to use one). Of course, you don’t have to include the picture.

In previous years, I have used other Anna Griffin card kits for Christmas and had a bunch of leftover embellishments from those kits. I did use some of the leftovers for some of the cards below as well.
