Merry Merry!! - Pink and Main

Hello Pink and Main Fans!

I just love Pink and Mains darling bow dies!  They make everything so festive!  I decided to make a pocket card with Pink and Main papers and dies!

Design Steps:

  1. Use an A2 green card base with the fold at the bottom.  Score the front top fold at 1 3/4 inches and then glue the flap down to the card base.  Next open the card and run a thin line of glue down both sides to form the pocket
  2. Using Pink and Mains Jolly Paper Pad cut the plaid paper for the bottom of the card 2 x 4 and glue it just under the flap. Next cut the checked green paper 1 1/2 x 4 and glue it to the flap

3.  To make the tag cut a 5 1/4 x 3 1/2 inch piece of white card stock and cut the top corners at a diagonal.   Punch a 3/4 inch circle out of the green checked paper and glue to the top of the tag then punch a 1/4 circle in the center of it

4.  Next cut 2 pieces 4 x 1/4 inch of shimmer red card stock, a 1/2 x 4 inch piece of checked paper, and a 2 x 3 1/4 piece of green checked paper.  Glue as shown below

5.  Using the red shimmer paper cut out the Pink and Main Large Bow and the Pink and Main Merry Christmas and glue down as shown

6.  Add the sticker snowflakes and ribbon and your card is ready to go

Jesus is Born! - Scrapping Cottage

Good Morning Scrapping Cottage Friends!

I just love the nativity scene that Cottage Cutz has created.  It is so beautifully detailed and everything looks so precious!

 Designer Steps:

 1.  Cut an A2 Kraft card base, cut a piece of wood grain DP 4 x 5 1/4. Cut a piece of navy dotted paper 4 x 5 1/4 and back it with foam. Use the Pierced Rectangle die to cut through the paper and foam to create the window
 2.  Glue down the wood grain paper then the frame on top of the wood grain
 3.  Cut out all of the pieces using the Cottage Cutz Nativity - Joseph & Animals and Mary, Angel and Baby.  I cut all the pieces out of white
 4.  Color all of the pieces with Copic Markers
5.  After the pieces are colored assemble them on the card as shown.  Cut the word blessings with the Cottage Cutz Expressions Blessings die out of kraft card stock and glue to the top of the card

Snowy Night - Scrapping Cottage

Hello Scrapping Cottage Fans!

Making Christmas cards is a fun way to show your family and friend your crafty side!  It is also a way to make cards that specifically fit someone's personality.  The card I am sharing today is going to a friend who lives in California.  She doesn't get any snow for Christmas so I thought I would send her some on my card!

 Design Steps:
1.  Using the Christmas Town and Season's Greeting w/Banner die cut out both of them in white.  On the Season's Greeting die cut off the deer and glue down the Season's Greetings
 2.  Use an A2 white base and cut out a piece of silver 4 x 5 1/4, a piece of white embossed with dots 3 3/4 x 5.  Then use the Double Stitched Rectangle die and cut out a piece of navy DP
 3.  Glue the silver and embossed paper to the card front
 4.  Glue the Season's Greetings to the banner and the Christmas Town to the navy DP
 5.  Place dimensional tape to the back of the navy DP and attach to the center of the card front
 6.  Add the sentiment banner as shown
 7.  Using the Snowflake Set cut out silver snowflakes
8.  Attach the snowflakes as shown below.  I glued the larger snowflake to the inside of my card

Hope you are started on your Christmas cards! If not stop by our store we have a ton of wonderful dies and stamps to inspire you!
