Cards - Christmas

Heartwarming Hugs DSP and the Wreath Builder Dies

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #641.  Today we have a sketch.

CCMC641

I have chosen to use the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper and the Wreath Builder dies to make my card.  I think it's really cute.

CCMC#642 Heartwarming Hugs by Jo Anne Hewins

The base of this card is Mossy Meadow cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The red striped piece from the Heartwarming Hugs paper measures 4 x 4.  The multicolored stripe paper is 1 1/2 x 4 1/2.

Use the Wreath Builder dies to cut the wreaths using the leaf die.  Cut one from the Mossy Meadow dotted and one from the Mossy Meadow check.  Glue these to the card.  I  put the glue mainly along that center circle keeping the leaves free.  Off set the two wreaths.  Put a mini dimensional under some leaves to give them dimension.

CCMC #641 Wreath Builder Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

For the flowers, you will need to cut 4.  The flower is part of the Wreath Builder dies.  Cut from Whisper White.  Punch a 1/2 inch circle from Real Red card stock.  The red dot goes between the two layers for a flower.  The petals are off set.  You can curl the petals with your Bone Folder or just kind of fluff them up.  Add to the wreath with glue dots or glue.

Add a bow made with the Real Red Sheer Ribbon.

The saying is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.  Stamp in Real Red on a scrap of white.  Punch with the Classic Label Punch and add with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, the saying is from Snow Wonder.  Stamp in Real Red.  Add a 3/4 x 4 strip of the multicolor stripe patterned paper.

Snow Wonder for an Easy Christmas Card

The Snow Wonder bundle has such a classic look.  I told myself that I didn't need another snowman stamp, but I couldn't resist.  I did need it!  OK, I wanted it, badly!  If you want a quick card, you'll love this one.

Snow Wonder & Snowflake Splendor DSP Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The base of this card is Night of Navy measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper is so beautiful.  It is cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.

Use the Stitched Shapes and cut the largest oval from Whisper White card stock.  Add to the center of the card front with dimensionals.

Stamp the snowman on Whisper White in Night of Navy ink.  Color with blends:  Light Purple Posy for the hat and scarf, Light Real Red for the berries, Light Granny Apple Green for the leaves, and Light Pumpkin Pie for the nose.  Cut out with the Snow Time dies and glue to the oval.

Stamp the saying from Snow Time in Night of Navy ink on white.  Fussy cut around the words.  Glue to the snowman so that it looks like she is holding the words.

Snow Wonder & Snowflake Splendor DSP Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside of the card, stamp the saying and some snowflakes in Night of Navy.

That's all there is too it.  It's an easy card that you can whip up pretty quickly.

Do you have your cards all made for Christmas?  I'm made a lot, but I have many more to make.  I'm thinking this one would be great for me to make in multiples.  I send out a lot of cards.  How many do you make?  I'll make about 130 at least.  I've made half of that.  I do have two Paper Pumpkins with cards to make still.

NC Demo Blog Hop for November Celebrating Christmas

Welcome to the NC Demo Blog Hop for November.  We have a fun hop celebrating Christmas colors whether they are traditional or just a little quirky.  You might have just come from Tracie's blog.  Great project, right!  If you are just starting here, then I do hope that you will visit everyone!  You'll be glad you did!

Join us blog

So we are thinking about the colors that say Christmas to us.  You probably aren't surprised, but I am a traditional person.  This picture really speaks to me.

Christmas Color Combo 4

If you have been to my house, you will see so much green.  It's my favorite color.  I love a classic simplicity.  Now I've never decorated my house like this, but I would love to!  My card is also inspired by Laurie Meier.  She demonstrated a slimline  card with a slider closure recently for the group.  I adapted her card to my design.

Slim Line Slider Card by Jo Anne Hewins

If I had a magic wand, I would wish this card could give me a big hug and just envelop me.  To me it says Peace on Earth!  The returning Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper is so pretty.

A slimline card fits into a regular business size envelope.  This kind of card has become popular over the last months.  I've been meaning to try one.  The card base is Thick Very Vanilla.  It is cut to 8 x 8 1/2.  Put the 8 inch side at the top and score at 2" and at 6" (2 inches from each side.)

Since this is a slider card, there needs to be a tiny space where the sides do not quite meet so there is room.  I did trim just a tiny bit to achieve this.

The Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper is cut to 1 7/8 x 8 3/8.

Slim Line Slider Card Project by Jo Anne Hewins

For the slider mechanism, you'll need two pieces of Very Vanilla 3 1/2 x 3 1/2.  You will also need 2 pieces of typing or thin paper paper the same size.  I used the Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder for one of the vanilla papers.  Place the card stock so that the design of the folder is centered.  Score the other vanilla paper in the center at 1 3/4.  Fold the 2 pieces of typing paper in half as well.  It might be easiest to watch the video to assemble.  I think my words would probably be confusing.  Pictures speak clearly, I hope!  I'll just go ahead and add the video here.

 

To decorate the slider, cut 2 wreaths using the Wreath Builder dies.  One wreath is in Garden Green card stock and the other is from the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.  Glue these down in the center with the patterned paper on the bottom.  Off set the wreaths.  I did add some mini dimensionals under some of the leaves to make them have dimension.  

Add a bow using the Very Vanilla ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Ribbon Pack.  I used a glue dot.  

The flower is cut using the Wreath Builders dies.  I cut two from Very Vanilla.  Punch a 1/2 inch circle of So Saffron card stock and add between the layers.  Off set the flowers.  Add the flower with a glue dot.

Add some of the Red Rhinestones!

The saying is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.  Stamp the saying in Real Red on Very Vanilla paper.  Fussy cut around the saying and clip a notch of each end.  Curl with a Bone Folder and then add to the slider with glue dots.

Wreath Builder Christmas Tag by Jo Anne Hewins

I also added a Christmas tag to match the card.  Cut Very Vanilla to 2 x 5 1/2.  Use the Tin Tile Embossing Folder again.  Make sure to center the designs.  The rest of the tag is made very similar to the card slider.

Cut the saying apart and add to the tag.  I added the pieces with glue dots.

Pair these together to make a striking ensemble.

Casing the August-December Catalog to Get New Ideas Facebook Live

Happy day to you.  My Facebook Live was delayed a few days, but I was able to get it in.  We made three cards using the August-December catalog for inspiration.  If you are ever stumped when you want to make a card, our catalogs are filled with wonderful ideas!  Here are the cards we made.

Facebook Live November 27th 2020 by Jo Anne Hewins

The first card I made was cased from a card on page 49 of the catalog.  It showed a beautiful card made using the Love of Leaves bundle.

Snowflake Splendor by Jo Anne Hewins

I used the same layout but different products.  The paper is Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper, the stamp set Snowflake Wishes and the die cut is from the Celebrations Labels dies.  I also used the Snowflake Splendor ribbon and the Banners Pick a Punch.  

Base:  Thick Whisper White 4 1/2 x 11, scored at 5 1/2.  

Designer Paper:  4 1/2 x 5 1/2

Highland Heather: 3 1/2 x 4 3/4

Banner:  Whisper White 1 x 4 1/4

Dove of Hope with Poinsettia Place by Jo Anne Hewins

This card used a card on page 14 for inspiration.  I loved the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper used with the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper.  I took those elements and went with it using the Dove of Hope bundle.  There are some tips about cutting the plush paper on the video.  

Base: Thick Whisper White 4 1/4 x 11, score at 5 1/2

Plush Poinsettia Specialty:  3 3/8 x 4 3/4, approximately

In the Pines with Poinsettia Place by Jo Anne Hewins

This card was cased from a card on page 43.  I stuck to the card in some ways, but substituted some supplies that I did not have.

Base:  Soft Suede 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, folded at 4 1/4

Poinsettia Place DSP:  3 3/4 x 5

Here is the Facebook Live for tips and tricks.  I'm giving away the cards made during the Live.  Just comment and I will pick a random winner.

 

Thanks so much for joining me.  I'm trying to do these Lives on Wednesdays at 4:00 ET.  Thanks for joining me!
