Adorable Penguin Easel card and Elegant Christmas Tag by designer Lori Williams


I'm in love with this adorable stamp and die set...I'm not sure how I'm going to continue to use this one come summer, but darn if I won't find a way somehow, LOL.  The matching stamp and dies make it super each to cut out the penguins perfectly for your projects.  I also love easel cards and they are super easy to make but really give a wow factor when opened.  You can create all sizes of easel cards, this one just happens to be a 5 x 5.

For this card I used the Christmas Tree stamp set to stamp around chosen images from the printed paper and then fussy cut out the stamped trees.  I love the subtle look the stamps gave.  Such a wonderful addition to the top of any package this holiday season.

A trio of Holiday cards by designer Gretchen McElveen featuring Jillibean Soup

It is time to work on your Christmas cards! I’ve got a few to share with you today that might help to jumpstart your creativity. I used kraft cardstock as the base of each of these cards. All the patterned paper is from the Jillibean Soup Holly Berry Borscht 6x6 paper pad. Then I decorated them with pieces from packs of ephemera, label stickers, and cork embellishments from Jillibean Soup. I also added a little sparkle with Glitter Dots from KI Memories. Sweet and simple!
Thanks for stopping by the blog today and Merry (early) Christmas!

Under the Mistletoe card by designer Patty Folchert

One of the things I love most about the new Holly Berry Borscht collection from Jillibean Soup is the color combo possibilities. This card uses cool tones the new stamp set, vellum and the fabulous glitter pack.

Under the Mistletoe card by Patty Folchert

The base of the card is  a lovely new polka dot in the softest shade of blue, Read Me paper,  from the Soup Staples III collection. Then I layered the Holly Berry Borscht- Smidge of Snowflakes first then a strip of 1 Cup of Holly Berries in the center. Next I stamped the new Holly Berry Borscht “Mistletoe” stamp onto white cardstock cut out and set aside. Now it was time to grab the brand new Glitter & Sequin Pack from the same collection, I sprinkled some blue stars and silver glitter into a vellum envelope to add some playful interaction to the card. 


Then I found the north pole sticker tag and layered it under the stamped tag which I added with 3D foam dots and with a silver twine bow. Last I added the “Cheer” arrow sticker also from the coordinating sticker sheet from the Holly Berry Borscht collection.

Does someone special in your life need a mistletoe hint? Then this is the card for you! 

Merry Mistletoe,
Patty
