If you are a frequent visitor, you know I am a card-maker so the first thing I look at when the new Holiday Expressions Idea Book is released are the ideas for Christmas cards.
I saw the Cut Above Tag Kit - Merry Everything and immediately set about coming up with ways to use the tag kit to make a bunch of this year's Christmas cards.
Here's the kit contents:
and the suggested tags you can make (with a couple of mini stamps)
And here are the TEN cards I made!
The first five feature the papers from the Silver and Gold Collection with a little ruby card stock to add a bit of pop.
These last five feature papers from the Beary Christmas Collection. Again, with some ruby and fern card stock to add a bit of pop.
In case you are wondering about the various embellishments and stamps I've used on these cards, here's a list:
- gold glitter gems
- gold shimmer trim
- silver shimmer trim
- M1184 - Merry Christmas
- M1183 - Merry Everything
- M1182 - Mistletoe Kisses
- M1181 - Ho Ho Ho
- M1176 - Little Saint Nick
- M1175 - Season's Greetings
- G1142 - Joyful Tidings WYW Cardmaking Kit Stamp set
- and, of course, coordinating inks in Ruby, Cranberry, Fern, Charcoal, and Black
- G1141 - Merriest Wishes WYW Cardmaking Kit Stamp set
Oh - and my cards are all 5 x 5 inch square.
