Christmas Trees Box Card - Bloggers Challenge Christmas in July

I created a Box Card using SVG Cuts Christmas Box Cards Kit, cutting the pieces with the Silhouette and embellishing them with Bo Bunny pattern paper.

The SVG Cuts Christmas Box Cards Kit has five wonderful Christmas Box Cards as well as plain box card templates that you can add your own die cuts or stamped images too.  I used the SVG Cuts Christmas Trees Box Card template from the Christmas Box Cards Kit.  I think it took me longer to pick out my papers than it actually took me to cut and assemble my box!

Ink - Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink

Vintage Santa - MOJO355


When better to start your Christmas cards, than July!  If I keep this up, I may actually have mine ready to mail early, instead of scrambling at the last minute to get them out the door!

Inspired by the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge, I created my Mixed Media card using one of my favorite images from the Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods plate. I stamped the image in Black Archival on a scrap of Authentique pattern paper, die cut the panel with Spellbinders Circle Dies, then sponged the edges with Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink to age the panel.  Wanting to add a bit more aging, I applied Ranger Crackle paint, and sprinkled on some Dry Glitter for added sparkle.




The papers from the Authentique paper pad, where a bit bright for my vintage card, so I applied Gesso to a Snowflake Stencil, once dry, I embossed the panel with a Snowflake Embossing Folder, and sponged the raised area with Gathered Twigs Distress Inks.  Again, wanting to age the panels further, I applied Crackle Paint and Dry Glitter.

To embellish, I die cut the fishtail panels using the ODBD Custom Pennants Die from Black card stock and scraps of pattern paper, adhered Black Ribbon with Twine accented with a Poinsettia, and the added the Black scallop border using the ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies.

For Baby - Bedtime Stories Gift Bag and Card

I was in need of a Gift Bag for a baby gift and a "big brother" card, and thought the Mother Goose Gift Bag and Humpty Dumpty Card from SVG Cuts Bedtime Stories SVG Kit would be just perfect.  I as thrilled with the way these came out, the extra details in the SVG Kits are always perefct!

Both of my projects use paper collections from Graphic 45.  The Humpty Dumpty card using the Old Curiosity Shoppe Collection and the Mother Goose Gift Bag uses the Little Darlings Collection.  All pieces were cut using the Silhouette Cameo.

Here's a closer look at Humpty Dumpty  All pieces are sponged with Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  For stability, I cut the card base from Kraft card stock, and then added the pieces from the kit cut from the G45 papers and card stock, popping up some of the panels on dimensionals.
