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:

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:

ADORABLE GIFT BOXES WITH CELEBRATION LABELS DIES

I couldn't wait to make these adorable gift boxes!  Credit for inspiration goes to Ericka Cerwin at PinkBuckaroo.com. She made a large box using the largest Celebration Labels Die in a Fall theme.  I've switched it up to a holiday theme, and came up with measurements for the smaller boxes which I will share below.  These are so much fun to make!

The celebration dies make such a beautiful box top with it's curvy edging and stitching outlining the sides.  

I also used the In the Pines Bundle for stamping the pine trees and die cutting the pines. Love, love, love this bundle!

Plaid Tidings DSP is added to the top to bring a country feel to theses boxes.  Shaded Spruce and Crumb Cake are used on the trio of boxes, and Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White are used on the single box below.

MAKE A PINWHEEL QUILT CARD!

I'm a quilter and love quilt patterns.  It's so much fun to make a card using a quilt pattern! This Pinwheel pattern is one you will want to add to your card recipes! It's easy and beautiful!  It's also a great way to use up scraps of paper!  I've made this one for Christmas, but it could be for any occasion.  

Pinwheel card2

I made these cards a couple of years ago, but just saw a video tutorial on stampingwithKristina.  The sizes below are what she used.

You need to use DSP with two contrasting colors or patterns.  I've used the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper.  (I love the gold foil accents in this paper.)  My card base is Pretty Peacock with a layer of Whisper White card stock. I embossed the Whisper White with the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder to give some texture and dimension to the mat layer.

Measurements for paper are:

Card base - 11 x 4 1/4" scored at 5 1/2"; Whisper White mat layer is 5 1/4 x 4"; Squares are 1 1/4" (4 each of two different patterns); large layer squares are 2 5/8" for base of small squares.
