Gift Card Holder

This is a 4 x 5.5 gift card holder. I got the idea from a video I saw (can't remember where it was!).  I liked this holder since it was a card as well.  Several people this year are getting gift cards and this came in handy.

The lace ribbon is from a Martha Stewart punch.  The Christmas ornament is from Joys of the Season cut at 2 inches  (Ornament <Garland>).   

Here is the basic layout for the card, cutting and folding ....

Christmas Card 3

Here is the third card that I made this year.    
This card is 4 x 5.25.  The 2 green strips were cut at 1.25 x 5.25 and 1.25 x 4 inches.  These were added to the card, then the background was embossed with the Seasons Greeting Cuttlebug folder.  The "Bow" was cut from the Storybook Cartridge, at 3.5 inches, using the accent and accent blackout features of the <Marquee1> key.  The stamp was one that I had.

Christmas Card #1

Well, its that time of year.  I've been busy creating Christmas cards.  I had several ideas, and made 7 sample cards.  My goal this year was to make cards that were quick and easy.  Here is the first of several cards I will be posting over the next several weeks.

This card is 4 x 5.5 inches.  All of the cuts are from the Winter Woodland cartridge.  The snowflake and background are all <Snowflk 4>, cut at 3.25 inches.  The lighter green is the shadow feature, the darker green is the blackout feature, the snowflake is the layer, and the red is the shift.

For the background I used the Snowflakes Cuttlebug embossing folder, and used the I-Rock tool to add a bit of sparkle.

A Thank-you Card

For Fathers Day my husband received a cap with an embroidered fish on it.  I had just gotten the Camp Out Cartridge which has a very similar fish.  It was perfect for creating a Thank-you card.

A Basket of Apples

This card was made entirely from the Doodlecharms cartridge.  At first I wasn't sure I would use this cartridge that much, but I have found I am using it more and more.
