Here’s a fun 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 Christmas card using the new set in the Holiday mini called Smitten Mitten. The set has a matching die that makes cute mittens with all sorts of patterns and accessories. I used the knit trim across the top and a snowflake to decorate. The sentiment is from Snowflake Sentiments and die cut using Karen Burniston’s Katherine Label die in white and Pool Party. The patterned paper is Stamping Ups Quilted Christmas Cardstock pack.
And inside is Karen Burniston’s Snowman Twist Circle die and her Winter Animals dies. I used the penguins to make a scene with the Nature’s Edges die – penguins making snowmen with the snowman watching. What a fun card!
There’s still time to join me on October 7th for my World Card Making Day Christmas Stamp a Stack. Check here for more information. Hugs, Fran
So this was the first thing I wanted from the Holiday Catalog – a lamp post! I stamped and die cut the lamp, sign and wreath and layered it on an oval embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder. The post is covered with Glossy Accents.
Inside I used Karen Burniston’s House & Fence Pop Up die. The snow is done with her Nature’s Edges die and the tress are from the Winter Charms set. The sentiment is Stampin Up’s Hearts Come Home. White is hard to photograph but I hope you get the idea! Hugs, Fran
This month’s Paper Pros challenge is monochromatic – and I cheated just a little bit 🙂 Tranquil Tide and White with a squirrel! The sentiment is from Carols of Christmas and the squirrel is a new die from Karen Burniston – Woodland Animals. Isn’t he cute?? But the best is inside…
This is Karen Burniston’s new Tree Pop Up die and Nature’s Edges. It’s a snowy scene with beautiful ornaments from the SU Carols of Christmas die hanging from the tree. The moon is a 2 1/2″ circle punch. Make sure to check out the other Paper Pro’s creations! Hugs, Fran
This 5 x 5 card holds a fun secret inside. The outside uses a two new dies from Karen Burniston – the Cupcake from the Cupcake Pop Up, rectangle from the Twist Panel Pop Up and the sentiment from Word Set 2. Then you open it up to find….
And explosion of fun! This twist panel is a die that does all the hard work for you! I decorated the panels with the smaller cupcake from the Cupcake Pop Up and stamped the 3rd panel with a small Happy Birthday stamp over and over in different colors. The edge is done with a die from Karen’s new Nature Edges set.
It’s so easy to create these fun cards! No more measuring and trying to make your own mechanism 🙂 Too much fun! Hugs, Fran
