Christmas Gift Card Holders

Hey there!
It's Judy here with you today
sharing a set of 3 gift card holders
I created using 4 die sets.


I started by putting together the gift card holder itself
using a piece of 3.5 x 8.5 inch piece of patterned card stock.
I scored on the long edge at 2 & 6 inches.
I folded at the 6 inch score and adhered on the 2 sides to create
the pocket that holds the gift card. 
I folded on the 2 inch score to create the top flap of the gift card holder.

Next, I used the dies to cut the pieces used to decorate the holders
using white card stock and metallic red and green card stocks.



I added velcro under the upper flap to secure the holder closed
and a "Merry Christmas" sticker along the lower front edge.


Each of the dies I've used are linked
to the Dies R Us Store below.

Happy Thanksgiving

Hello Dies R Us Friends!  Lori here today and I have a card that I made for Thanksgiving that uses a lot of different dies.



For this A2 card I used dies from all four of these die sets.


 

I started by taking a piece of Neenah Desert Storm paper to make the base of the card.  I took the Shadow Box frame from the Creative Expressions Shadow Box ~ In The Garden die set and some brown and white gingham paper and cut out the frame.  



I took the one of the smaller frames form Creative Expressions Shadow Box Collection ~ Scalloped Lattice Frame set B and placed that around the outside of the Shadow Box Frame die and cut that out and added that to the card base.  I took a piece of White paper and cut out the Shadow Box frame again.  I inked the squares and rectangles with Tea Dye distress ink and glued them inside the frame.  I took a piece of November Graphic 45 paper and cut out the sentiment and glued that into the lower right square. I took some orange, red, yellow and green paper and the pumpkin and leaves dies from the Creative Expressions Necessities Wooden Garden Cart die set and added them into the three squares at the top of the frame and the small rectangle frame.  I took some Yellow and Brown paper along with the stem die from the Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations die set, placed the yellow stem on top of the brown stem and then glued that into the long rectangle on the left side of the frame.  I took some Brown ink and inked the edges all around the card.

Give Thanks Card

Hi everyone, Steph back with another project for Dies R Us.

It's Thanksgiving next week so I've created a cornucopia card.


I love this Tutti Designs die so I die cut the cornucopia from kraft cardstock, then lightly inked it with Tea Dye Ink.


To emphasize the pumpkin, I added orange cardstock, using the Best Glue Ever to the thin pumpkin veins.


I created a card from papers I had on hand, creating an assortment of layers.  Then I added a strip of burlap across the center.  The cornucopia was added to a die cut gray circle with foam adhesives and then adhered to the card.


A simple phrase was stamped with black ink and then slipped behind the cornucopia.  Foam adhesives were also placed behind the phrase.


Happy Thanksgiving.

Santa is Coming to Town!

Hello all, Samantha here!

I hope you take a second and stop by the Dies R Us store because there are SO MANY GOODIES! 

Today, I am sharing a card I made for Christmas. This one was so much fun to make - a bit more involved than what I normally do but so worth it!



This was made with non-traditional Christmas colors, but I also thought it'd be perfect for a little girl!

I used a Kraft Card base, patterned paper I got from Hobby Lobby some time ago, and of course NUMEROUS supplies you can find at Dies R Us!


I adore all of Karen Burniston's products and was able to combine a few of them to make this cute card! In this one I used the Train Pop Up Set, Train Elements, and the Twist Panel Pop Up. The other thing I love about Karen's products is the nifty YouTube Tutorial she has with everyone! You can view the ones to complete this set here!

CELEBRATE WITH DIES R US

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with a fun Christmas card that is really easy to make.


To make this card I used paper from American Crafts Peppermint Express 12x12 paper pad. 

My back panel is cut to 4"x5.25".

 My grey piece is cut to 4"x2.5". The Blue dot panel is cut to 3.75" x 2.25".
 I then cut this blue/gray panel 1.25" from the right side.

 Layer the panels on the card base which is white cardstock top folded to 4.25" x 5.5".

My sentiment is Elizabeth Craft Designs "Celebrate Die", cut 3 times on red cardstock and 1 time on Red Chrome cardstock and layered for dimension. 

All panels and layers were put together using ScraPerfect
 Best Glue Ever. I added some 
Nuvo Drops is Duck Egg Blue and 
Autumn Red for accents.
Products Used...
