Christmas Village Christmas Cards

Hi there! I hope you are getting ready for your holidays. I celebrate Christmas so I decided to do a “wrap” for my Christmas photo cards. I found this website that has this free cityscape SVG files that I used. Essentially what I did was use my ECAL program and welded the desired background to two rectangles. Here is a screenshot:

 

My machine did the rest

For the marquis I used my Storybook cricut cartridge and used the Accent Blackout feature of the image found on page 51. I cut it at 4.25″ wide x 3″ tall.

The stamp is from Ink-a- Doodle and the red ink is from Color Box. I used Stamping Up shimmer mist to give the red paper sparkle. The red paper is from Recollections at Michaels.

Thanks and have a Merry Christmas!

Another idea for mass production cards

Trick or Treat is coming and I am getting ready for the tons of kids in our lives 🙂 My daughter and I made these cute and simple 3″x3″ note cards.  We are using them to put in the treat bags we are going to hand out at school.

Use white 12″x12″ cardstock. Cut strips 3″ wide each. Then cut the strips at 6″. You will now have 3″ x 6″ strips. Fold them in half and there is your 3″x3″ note base.

Now cut 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ squares using your favorite pattern paper and adhere to the base.

Use the 2″ scallop and punch as many as you will need. Stamp the scallops using your favorite stamps. I used this stamp set for mine. Note the mommie is from a stamp set I got at Walmart from Studio G. Then simple add a dimensional to the center of the scallop and adhere to the note card. That is is… You are done!

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to comment.

Mass Produced Birthday Cards

Here we go with more mass produced cards. This time we are doing birthday cards. Here are the instructions:

 

  1. Cut white card base at 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ (the long way)
  2. Cut the red paper at 4″ x 5″
  3. Cut party hat from Potpourri basket Cricut cartridge at 2.59″ (page 69)

For variations on embossed:

  • run red paper and embossing folder through your machine of choice
  • adhere the embossed paper to the card base

For white stitched non-embossed card:

  • adhere the red paper to the card base
  • use white gel pen to draw stitches.

For the Action Wobble ® make sure you adhere the party hat firmly to the wobble.
