Christmas Bauble Card

Hello everyone! It's nearly the end of the school year and I now I can make a start on my Christmas cards. I love to look at them and make them. I have wanted to make a shaped card for a while and so I am happy to share my bauble shaped card with you today. It is about 6 inches in size. I downloaded a paper template from the internet and created a paper template to draw my base and folded card layer. I did some altering on my computer to get the right size.

I have three layers, two bauble layers one with patterned paper, one with cream cardstock and the third layer is a round circle die cut with patterned paper. I used scalloped scissors to create the cream bauble. I used foam tape in between my layers for dimension.

The wreath and the poinsettia were all created with dies and die cut from paper from the Kaisercraft collection. The berries were some pearls, to add a little bling!


Paper: Kaisercraft Christmas carol 6 1/2" paper pad and sticker sheet

Dies: Magnolia Christmas Poinsettias, Impression Obsession Die021-N (wreath)

Other: Ruby Rock It Snow White coarse glitter, Stampin! Up! cherry cobbler seam binding, bakers twine, Porta Craft flower stamens, scalloped scissors, Distress ink vintage photo, flat back pearl

Hello everyone! I haven't made a card for a little while and I thought I needed a break from writing my school reports and decided to have some creative time. I liked the Tic Tac Toe challenge and decided to play along!

I have used specialty papers - thread- and builder stamps in my card.

I used papers from Kaisercraft Bow and Arrow collection as my base papers. I machine stitched around the edge of my papers (thread part of the challenge). I then stamped the largest flower and leaves from the Altenew Peony Bouquet and die cut them with their matching dies.

I have been wanting to have a card that had a trellis, so I created one using two Spellbinder dies. I used two rectangular dies to create the frame and then used a background die to create the rest of the trellis. I die cut the Kensinton Brand die by Memory Box and used sponge daubers and distress inks to colour it in! Once dry I added clear Wink of Stella to the butterflies and to the flowers.


Paper: Kaisercraft Bow and Arrow  6 1/2" paper pad

Stamps: Altenew Peony Bouquet and dies

Inks: Distress inks spun sugar, worn lipstick, picked rasberry, shabby shutters and gathered twigs

Altenew frosty pink, cotton candy, coral berry, frayed leaf, forest glaciers and evergreen, Wink of Stella clear

Dies: Memory Box Kensignton Branch, Spellbinders Long Classic rectangle and Grateful Lattice

Tim Holtz Village Bungalow

Hello everyone! I am taking a break from writing my school reports to share a quick post. I have a second Tim Holtz dwelling to share with you which is the Village Bungalow. I am loving these miniatures and at the moment, they are on display in my classroom (in a clear plastic container out of reach from curious fingers).

I used papers from Kaisercraft Basecoat Collection to create the bungalow. As the paper is thin, I die cut the pieces using thick cardstock and then adhered the papers on top. I distressed the edges using Ground espresso distress ink.

The roof was created using one of the die cuts from the village roof top dies and also papers from the Kaisercraft paperpad. The foliage and potted plants (in front of the front door) was purchased from Riot Craft.


Paper: Kaisercraft Base Coat Paperpad and Game On Collection P1494:MVP (base)

Ink: Ground Espresso distress ink

Dies: Tim Holtz Village Dwelling, Village Bungalow and Village Rooftops

Other: JTT Scenery assorted potted flower plants 2, Wee Scraps wore foliage trees, Tim Holtz mini fasteners

Thanks so much for stopping by!
