Deer Christmas card

Colleen from Scrappin Granny here today to share a sparkly Christmas card with you.  I am sorry that the card has glares but I couldn't find a way to get the sparkly paper to not glare.





I started by picking out my cardstock for the card.


Next I used the Birch Trees die by Impression Obsession to cut out the birch trees.  


The next step was to back my birch trees so that some brown came through. I hand cut around the trees and really loved the end result.  




Next I cut out the deer using Christmas Reindeers by Amy Design.  Also since some little birds come with the  Birch Trees die by Impression Obsession I cut them out with red cardstock.



To finish the card I used Merry Christmas die by Yvonne Creations.

Poinsettia Christmas Card

Tracy here today with another to way to use your dies. I was cutting out this poinsettia die by Tutti Designs in a couple of different types of paper and happened to lay them down on top of each other and noticed how pretty they looked together.


Here are the two separate die cuts


I then layered them but offset them just a bit so the gold would show behind the red cardstock. I thought it gave just enough sparkle behind the red cardstock. I used ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever with the small no clog writing cap to adhere them together.


I layered it on a piece of green glitter paper, added the ribbon and flower and layered it on a white card base. I just love how this card turned out!

Supplies Used:


Tutti Designs - Dies - Poinsettia Corner



Best Glue Ever



Stickles Glitter Glue - Gilded Gold


Scraperfect - No Clog Writing Cap - Small

Thanks Shaker Card

Hi everyone! It's Doni here with a THANKS shaker card. 
 
 
It's always nice to have a thank you card on hand.  I think this one would work for anyone
 depending on what you put on the inside. 

To start cut 2 of the same size frames. Put foam tape on the back of one.
 On the other frame put double sided sticky tape on the back and then attach it
to a piece of clear acetate, then trim off the excess acetate.
Set these aside for the moment and assemble your card front. 
Select pretty papers and cut the center paper the same size as your frames.
Sprinkle a pile of pretty shaker stuff ( beads, sequins, etc.) directly in the center .
Remember to keep them away from the edges.


Next, take the frames you started with and attach the frame with the clear acetate 
to the top of the other frame with adhesive ( making sure that the foam tape is on the bottom).
Now all you have to do is remove the paper from the foam tape and center your frame over the
center panel and your shaker front is done! ...Well, almost... die cut the word thanks 
and add it to the front.  Here's a closer look:

At the moment, this thanks die is out of stock, but you can type thanks in the DSU search bar and find lots of Dies that will work just as well.
Here's another view:

Below, you'll find the list of the dies I used with links to the Dies R Us Store for your convenience.

Altered Christmas Canister

Christmas greetings, fellow crafters!  This is Julie with you today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  If you're like me, I know you're busy with holiday EVERYTHING!  For some of the really special people on my list, I like to not only give them a special gift, but also an original gift package.  While I think gift bags are the greatest thing since toast, sometimes that special gift calls for something a bit more, well, unique!  Like this, perhaps....



This is a Kraft container that I've had in my stash of alterable goodies forever, and I pulled it out to decorate for a special friend.

Here's a picture of the supplies I used.  I'll list and link them at the end:

I covered the container with a Christmas paper, keeping the pattern simple and small so it wouldn't overwhelm the die cuts.

Next, I got busy cutting out all those pretty Christmas die cuts:

After that was done, it was just a matter of using some of the Best Glue Ever to attach the die cuts to the container.

The tree was so lacy and delicate that it got lost in the paper, so I backed it with a label die:
In case you're wondering what gift is going in the can, one of my best friend loves socks.  I have a couple of very fun pairs of socks to fit inside.  Perfect!
