Snowflake Christmas Card by Paula Pascual

Christmas is almost upon us, so last minute Christmas cards should be done now!
So here you have a quick idea using a small white square card as a base.

I used :
Sizzix Big Shot 
Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 3pk Delicate Fall

I first trimmed the patterned paper to be around 1 cm smaller than the card itself. Then I place the Warm Winter Wishes die on the paper, secure it with tape and die cut it using my Big Shot.
Then I die cut the snowflakes and assembled it all together.

I hope you like it!

The proud deer die Christmas card by Paula Pascual

Today I am sharing two ideas on how to make Christmas cards using the same die, the Proud deer.

For this card I used:

I first Created the hills by roughly cutting the light brown card freehand. Then I distressed the edges using a medium brown distress ink. I attached them with foam pads to the card and then I added the die cut trees. i trimmed two of them so that there would be some variation on the height.
Then I die cut the deer using Kraft card. Then I stamped the message on a strip of card and attached it to the card. Finally I added the deer.

This second card is quicker to make but slightly more technical. I die cut the front of the card by placing the die in the middle, but making sure that one of my cutting plates wasn't all the way so that the die wouldn't cut the feet of the deer.
Then I stamped the message and added a strip of card at the bottom and on the inside.

The space at the bottom half is plenty of room for a simple Christmas message.

I hope you like this two ideas!

Wreath stamped card by Paula Pascual

I love wreath cards. So when I saw this set I decided I wanted to make a wreath card using the circle stamps.

I used:

Plus white card, clear blocks, adhesives and ink pads.

On a white card, I placed a 4" circle and traced around it with a pencil. You can use a cup or any large round object.
Then I stamped three large orange circles in a triangle sort of way. Then I went with the smaller stamps and different colours to randomly fill the areas in between around the penciled line.

(If you would like to see a similar process with step by step photos, you can click here for a previous project.)

Then I added the buttons and brad to fill in any gaps there were.

I stamped the message and then cut in a circle, stapled some ribbon and glued it to the card using foam pads.

I hope you like it!
