Gift Card Envelope Thinlit

 
Another fun item in the upcoming Holiday catalog is the Gift card envelope & trims thinlit.  I give lots of gift cards and this is a really quick and easy way to create fun packaging for them!
 
 
My sentiment is from the Merry Everything stamp set and I used some All is Calm specialty paper and a frosted finished embellishment. 

 
This is how the pocket part of the envelope looks, I didn't do anything to it other than attach the bottom flap with fast fuse adhesive.
 
Supplies:
Merry Everything
Pool Party ink
Whisper White, Smoky Slate, Lost Lagoon card stock
Frosted finished embellishments
All is Calm specialty paper
Gift Card envelope and trims thinlit

For all things

 
More holiday catalog items in the card I am sharing today.  We have some watercolor type images in the For All Things stamp set and I just love playing with those.  One of the images is stamped behind the sentiment on this card with Pistachio Pudding ink.


 
The designer paper is part of a collection called Under the Tree specialty paper and it ties in with the Kraft theme the catalog has in the packaging department (wrapping paper, boxes, bags, etc.). 
 
Supplies:
For all things
Pistachio Pudding, Early Espresso ink
Marina Mist, Whisper White card stock
Under the tree specialty paper
On point folder
Apothecary accents framelits

Never too Early!

 
It is never too early to think about making Christmas cards, especially if you have a long list!  I am hoping to get a chance to design some Christmas card kits for you like I did last year...we will see how things go!

 
This card uses the Merry Everything stamp set and matching Note Tag punch.  The designer series paper is called All is Calm Specialty paper and I just love the colors that are not traditional Christmas colors. 
 
Supplies:
Merry Everything
Pear Pizzazz, Smoky Slate, Lost Lagoon Whisper White card stock
Lost Lagoon ink
frosted sequins
All is Calm specialty paper
Lucky stars folder
Note tag punch

And Finally Take 3

 
The last sentiment image is "merry" and these stamps can create beautiful cards without a lot of effort since the images are large and decorative themselves. 


 
Each card uses the Filigree frame folder, but the bottom one has the reverse embossing by just flipping the card stock over. 
 
I love the little All is Calm snowflake accents and can't wait to see all the ideas that stem from them! 

 
Supplies:
Seasonally Scattered
Coastal Cabana ink
Very Vanilla, Coastal Cabana card stock
Filigree Frame folder
Pistachio Pudding ruffle stretch ribbon
gold basic buttons
1/8" silver ribbon
All is Calm snowflake embellishments

Take 2

 
Today's cards show the "thanks" sentiment in the Seasonally Scattered stamp set.  Both bases are Soft Suede card stock and I used the Decorative Dots and Stylish Stripes folders directly on the card bases.

 
The first image is stamped in baked Brown Sugar and the second in Cajun Craze.  Each one has some Color Me Autumn designer series paper (you are going to love this pack!).  The top has a few gold basic metal buttons and on the bottom, the accent is Venetian crochet trim.

 
Supplies:
Seasonally Scattered
Soft Suede, Baked Brown Sugar, Crushed Curry, Very Vanilla card stock
Baked Brown Sugar, Cajun Craze ink
Stylish stripes folder
Decorative dots folder
Venetian crochet trim
gold basic buttons

Seasonally Scattered Take One

Over the next three days I am  going to share a few cards using the Seasonally Scattered stamp set that will be in the Holiday catalog coming to you soon. 
 

 
There are three stamps in the set, "Love", "Merry" and "Thanks" and they are large images (yeah!).  The first cards use the "love" image and I chose Silver Metallic ink for the first card and White Craft ink for the second.

 
I added a piece of Silver Fancy Foil Vellum over Lost Lagoon card stock and then the stamped image on Real Red card stock.  As accents, I used some 1/8" silver ribbon and frosted sequins.
 
 
The second card has a Kraft card stock base and it is embossed with the arrows folder.  I added a piece of white satin ribbon and a punched out heart.
 
Supplies:
Seasonally Scattered
Silver Metallic, White Craft ink
Whisper White, Real Red, Lost Lagoon and Kraft card stock
Silver fancy foil vellum
frosted sequins
1/8" silver ribbon
white satin ribbon
itty bitty accents punch
arrows folder

Burlap and Lace

I am always on the lookout for fun things to alter when I get a chance to shop.  I came across this paper mache box awhile ago and had not done anything with it yet.

 
Right now it is empty, but I thought it would be a great box for a gift of any kind, a card set or even just a display piece.

 
I added some Flashback designer series paper (I just LOVE the versatility of this paper pack!).  Then, I added some Venetian crochet trim around the top and bottom attaching it with a random glue dot here and there.

 
Next came the silver basics buttons, again attached with glue dots...

 
And finally the burlap and Venetian crochet trim on the top (this is attached with sticky strip.
 
Supplies:
Flashback dsp
Burlap ribbon
Venetian crochet trim
silver basic buttons
glue dots
snail adhesive
sticky strip
