Change Your Card Background With Embossing Folders

Want to create a little variety in that stack of cards you are working on? Consider changing the background with embossing folders. These cards are almost exactly the same.  But take a look at the background - this one is embossed with snowflakes in the background:

And this card has evergreen trees in the background:

This is how you can make two similar but different cards by just changing the background with an embossing folder.

See the video tutorial:

ELF GIFT CARD HOLDER

This is fun and easy!  Flash back to "Elf" the movie and his bright green elf suit!  This will not only hold a gift card, but bring a smile to someone's face!

I've used three different die sets to create this cute gift card holder.  The body of the card holder is made with Celebration Labels Dies (You NEED this set)! Collar and Shoes are made with the smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies, and the gold buckle is die cut from the smallest square in the Layering Squares Dies.  

Here's my video tutorial - see how easy this is to make!

Make a Stunning Christmas Card!

I want to show you how to make a stunning Christmas card!  I saw this card on a YouTube video by Linda Bedinger at Ink and Ingenuity, and just loved it.  It features the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper, which is so lovely:

Isn't it pretty?  It is a vellum paper with flocked designs on top.  Just gorgeous!  

I've also used the Word Wishes Dies to cut out "Merry Christmas." These dies feature a die cut sentiment for different holidays and are found on page 183 of the Annual Catalog:

Well wishes dies 2

And here is the card:

PRETTY CARD WITH SNOWFLAKE WISHES BUNDLE

Brrr! The first snow blew in this morning with quite a fury! We lost electric amid the snow and wind, but when things calmed down there was the blanket of softly fallen snow.  It came as a reminder that winter is just around the corner! This prompted me to share this lovely card with you today:

Snowflake wishes duo2

The touches of Balmy Blue Shimmer Paper add a touch of elegance and sparkle.  Here's the inside view:

If you want to purchase all of the products I used, just order the Snowflake Splendor Suite (#155115), which includes all of them.  If you would like just the stamps and dies, order the Snowflake Wishes Bundle (#155172).  This is a set you can use throughout the winter.  It's a beautiful set with a large number of dies and stamps and sentiments.
