Today we have an assortment of some SUPER cute DIY Christmas cards all made by Lisa and all using items from our newest Christmas release. Let’s take a look and then we can get some juicy details!
First this adorable slimline card with some of our stinkin’ cute (if we do say so ourselves!) winter cuties:
Next we’ve got an adorable scene created in a shadow box. A shadow box created using one of our DIES and NOT with a fussy pattern! So adorable, right?
Next we have another fun scene in more traditional colors, loaded with fun details all done for you with the stamps!
And how much do we love a PINK Christmas card? Last year this color was all the rage and we are “tickled pink” to see it’s back for another year of being in the spotlight on holiday cards.
Let’s get into a little more detail. We mentioned that this card was made using the shadow box frame die – there’s a larger one available too! – and the feedback on this ONE PIECE die had been fantastic. People LOVE that it’s one piece, not a bunch of edges and sides and angles that you still have to tweak to assemble. Just run it through your machine, fold and adhere and you’ve got a shadow box frame ready to fill with cuteness!
Lisa filled her shadow box with images from our new Christmas Inchies set. Inchies are enjoying a comeback and we thought these fellas were just perfect as little accents on small projects but put together with all the fun things in the set, they can fill a card like this or even a slimline card as you will see below.
We also love how Lisa used the shadow box die to cut that layer of patterned paper to make that adorable frame for the top of the card. Our designers are so great at thinking “outside the box”!
We love those touches of non traditional colors – check out those adorable tiny light strings – and how Lisa created so much interest by just adding a different character in each little scene.
Also, note what she did with the greetings! They are stacked on the stamp but she just went ahead and cut them up and spread them out to make them fit the top of her adorable card.
Lisa used some fun patterned paper as her background and used our Stitched Hills die to cut some snowy banks from white glittery paper. Using the same tones of reds and greens on all those fabulous details adds so much visual interest to this CUTE card!
And now for that card that puts the pink in our cheeks! Notice that Lisa added depth and texture to her card by using a strip cut with the Slimline Clouds Die as a stencil to create that tone on tone pink background with Color Fuse. She used something from ALL the new release sets – the snowman from Snowmen With Presents, the bunny from Wintery Friends and the lights from Christmas Inchies along with all the other little details. How fun is THAT?
Hopefully this batch of cute DIY Christmas cards has you thinking about what you might want to make and send this year. Stay tuned for even more inspiration and ideas for fun holiday projects as we go into the season!
