Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. The holidays are nearly upon us and I have a fun card to share with you using the new Sweater Season Die. The beauty of this die is that it can be used all year just eliminate the holiday features. Below are the steps to create your own card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 7″ x 6″, score at 3 1/2″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Mini Slimline)
Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock for 3 1/2″ x 6″. Place Planner Stencil 1 (Circles) onto the panel and add Ink of your choice using a Blender Brush. Optional: Add Transparent Texture Paste and quickly add some Glitter. Let dry then adhere to card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 3 – Diecut Sweater Season using various colors of Cardstock. Assemble using Kids Choice Glue and adhere to card using Foam Tape. For added interest I added Glossy Accents to the tree and sprinkled Glitter. Once dry I added the White trimmings to the tree.
Step 4 – Stamp Holiday Treats using Versafine Onyx Black Ink to White Soft Finish Cardstock. Diecut the sentiment using Diagonal Stitched Fishtails. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
This card can be used for several occasions by removing the holiday elements and changing the sentiment. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
Karen here! I usually make at least 100 Christmas cards and send them out. I’m SO far behind and so glad that I have Joset’s new collection to help and inspire me. Today’s cards use the adorable new Mrs. Claus and the Sweater Season set.
How sweet is this sweater from the Sweater Season set with a bear on it?! The background papers are all from the Christmas Lives Here paper collection. (I added a Fitted Square a bit crooked just to frame the sweater a bit. I created the sweater from a green dotted G45 scrap along with sleeves that are 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock with Copic G46. Of course the waist and collar are also Soft FInish Cardstock. The sentiment tag is from the new Nested Tag set and the sentiment itself is from Holiday Treats.
I absolutely love Mrs. Clause! It’s like putting together a paper doll from when I was younger. She is so super sweet. Her feet and dress are cut from the same G45 dotted paper I used in the sweater. The rest of the pieces are cut with 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock. I used a Copic E00 on the skin, the Copic G46 for the collar and bottom of the apron, and the C1 for the hair. I cut her sweet little glasses with gold cardstock and added some lace and twine. Cutting the pieces on top with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive makes it so much easier to put together!
Thank you for stopping by!
Craftily yours, Karen
