Holly Jolly Christmas card

Hi there !

I'm back with a card made with 3 dies and 6 papers !

Base is a black/white plaid rectangle fold in half. I used a journaling tag (with the holly in the corners), matted with candy stripes paper. I cut the red circle with a stitched die (Lawn Fawn), the tree shaped phrase with a Spellbinders die, and the wreath with a Little B die (cut 3 times).

Joyeux Noel / Merry Christmas card

Hi everyone !

This is my first card in French this year ! Red glitter and black, with a nice sentiment frame fussy cut.

As for all my card this Christmas, I used papers from the pad (North Pole Gazette) to create the card base too. Here it's the red glitter with white snowflakes one, a 8 1/2" x 5 /12" rectangle folded in half.
The strip of music paper is not from a music sheet paper, but from a detail of a journaling sheet. I cheated a little bit, because this music strip wasn't big enough to go from a side to another of the dots paper, so I just cut it and hide the hole behind the frame.

Thnk you for stopping by for this 16th card. Don't forget to comment to enter my current giveaway, and see tomorrow for another Christmas card !

Happy Holidays card in plaid

Hello again !

Finally a card with fussy cutting ! You know that is my favorite activity, don't you ? It's relaxing and challenging at the same time... So here I hand cut all the pine cones and branches one by one !

The base is in black polka dots paper, I made a border with decorative scissors in the paper that looks like a journal, took a black tag from another sheet and finish with a rectangle in plaid paper at the same length than the tag.
I placed the cones and branches just under the tag to make a composition overflowing the plaid paper.

We are now halfway of my 30 cards before Christmas, I hope you enter already my giveaway, but if not you still can by commenting on one or more of my 2018 cards (see this post for details).

Today is also a new day of sale at, and it's matching perfectly my posts, as they have 20 to 50% off on cardmaking ! The 12 Brands are still on sale, and the freebie of the day is a Prima Marketing Floral pack - Troika Plum !

I hope I gave you some inspiration so far to create more Christmas cards. I also hope you enjoyed mine, and you will come back tomorrow for another one !

Have a great Monday !

Tree shaped Merry Christmas

Hello !

A very simple card today with just one die by Impression Obsession :

Base is a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" rectangle cut in the red deer paper, folded in half. Creamy paper has already the plaid and kraft borders on its design, so I just cut a 4 1/4" x 5 1/4" rectangle in it, and applied the merry Christmas (shaped as a tree) cut in black paper.

It's the 14th card, we are almost halfway of the 30 cards. Did you comment already on the one I showed you ? Some of you have really increased their chances of winning by commenting on almost every cards ! So keep your eyes on the prize and start commenting ! See the first post for details and picture of the prize...

I hope you have a great Sunday, and I will see you tomorrow...

Silver and green make a good team !

Hello !

Let's have a change of color today with a card mostly silver and green...

The base is a 10" x 7" rectangle cut into a silver stripes paper, folded in half to make a 5"x7" card.
I cut the journaling square tag and match it with the green pine paper, and add two mats in silver and red papers.

As you have seen, my cards this year are simple and quick to make. I really wanted to show the potential of a paper pad (here the North Pole Gazette by Recollections) without the cost of fancy cards. They are still handmade, but you could give them without fear of them being tossed in the trash. Better, you could make a bunch of cards and donate them to hospitals or charity...

Thank you for stopping by today, have a wonderful Saturday and see you tomorrow... Don't forget to comment to enter my giveaway !

Season's greetings card

Hello !

Nothing fancy today, I just use the borders available on the pad to create this design :

Base is a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" black rectangle fold in half. I added a 4 1/2" x 4 1/4" rectangle in plaid paper and the borders I found in the pad for the background. The square is a countdown tag and I masked the number  with a red circle tag matted with another circle cut in black with a die (seal from the Hipster 1 set by Spellbinders).

You could win a die cutting/embossing/stamping combo (see this post) by commenting on this card (or any other cards), so show me some love before leaving !

Have a great day and see you tomorrow...

Be merry card

Hi everyone !

A black and red card with some plaid pattern today, and one die cut... That makes my 12th card before Christmas. If you don't know it yet, I have a giveaway running and you could simply enter by commenting on my cards. It's 30 chances to win. Take a look at this post for details and prize.

The base is in red deer paper, I added the black border with a decorative scissor, cut the red tag from one sheet, and mat it with the black plaid. The sentiment is cut with a die from the Spellbinders Naughty or Nice set.

Dies are very useful to create cards, easy and quick to use but also inexpensive compare to stickers to create sentiment. If you want to add some to your collection, has a great sale on die cutting : 20 to 50% off. They also have 12 brands on sale like Sizzix, Tonic Studio, Prima, Lawn Fawn, We R Memory Keepers, Ranger, Doddlebug Design, American Crafts, Simple Stories, Echo Park, Photoplay Papers and Art Impressions ! On the top of that, today's freebie is Tonic Dot N' Drop Die Paisley !
