Christmas Gift Card Packets

Our grandchildren are now young adults and we always give them a few stocking stuffer items in a different little handmade container each year.

This year I decided to work with some Vintage Christmas scenes.  Each one is printed onto canvas and embellished with Prismacolor pencils and glitter, some have little diamonds.  Like most scrapbookers and card makers, I have a stash of paper (a small store really) so I chose carefully based on the scene and their colors.  So far I have made eight (8) designs and love every single one of them.  It will be hard to decide who gets which one (I may even save one for myself).

Here are a few of the packets for this, year each one filled with some cash, a gift card and a few lottery tickets.

Joy Fold Christmas

Joy Fold Christmas

For this card I used Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip and Whisper White card stock.  The designer paper is Wonder by Authentique.  The image is Beautiful Season by Stampin' Up colored with Copic Sketch markers.  The Martha Stewart Botanical edge die for the trim and Spellbinders Nestabilities dies for the circles and scallop.  The organdy ribbon is from Michael's.

Happy Birthday Robin

Birthday Card for my sister.

I was inspired by Tracy MacDonald's 4 Christmas Robins card found here:

This card is for my sister Robin who has a birthday later this month.

I used Stampin' Up Kraft, Whisper White and Black papers all trimmed on the edge with Martha Stewart Doily Lace edge punch.

The3  birds are by Inkadinkado and the little bird is from Stampin' Up all were colored with Primsacolor pencils and Gamsol.  I rubbed a little Crystal Sparkles Tulip Glitter on their little chests to give them some sparkle.

Happy Birthday is from Stampin' Up Easy Events stamp set cut out with the word window punch.
I stamped two fo the flowers from the branch of the bird stamp and punched it out with a 3/4" circle punch, colored it with Primsacolors, wrote "Robin" on it, then adhered three other punched out circles to the back, sanded the edges and added Glossy Accents.

Spellbinders Nestabilities dies were used to cut out and frame the Robins.  Gingham ribbon ties it all up.

Thank you Tracy for the inspiration for this card.

ADFD Flock Together Challenge 31

ADFD Challenge 31 "Flock Together"

Good Night Fairy

I used the Winter Fairy image provided by Tammy at ADFD.  My little fairy was printed twice, colored with Copic markers, then I cut out one and popped her up over the other image with pop dots.  The snow was colored light blue then flocked with white, they look like little cotton balls.  I added glitter to the fairy wings, little pink flowers and her little toes.  Flower and leaf dies and punches were used to make the flowers.  The Floral spray is by Modern Romance and the ribbon is from my stash.  I used two Wilton cupcake doilies as a base for the Nestabilities dies.

The inside of the card reads:  "May the Good Night Fairy bless you with sweet dreams when you lay your head upon your pillow tonight and always."

I made this card with my granddaughter in mind as she will be moving into her very own apartment soon and I want to wish her sweet dreams.
