I was making Christmas cards in August


I love using up scraps. I love letting beautiful coordinated papers do all the hard work. These two projects definitely fulfill those wishes.

The cards above were quick and simple. But I think, super adorable. I was inspired to recreate this wonderful design using a retired SU! Christmas paper stack. All the coordinating designs made these cards quick and easy to put together. Add a tiny sweet sentiment and a bakers twine bow and voila! Perfection.

I love how these turned out. I copied this inspirational card. But this look is not quick or simple. Oy vay, gluing and aligning each of those punched hexagon shapes was tedious and time consuming. Just fair warning.

Pinterest inspired washi tape card

I had pinned this beautiful card quite a while ago, with every intention of making my own version of it. I got these gorgeous fabric washi tapes specifically with this project in mind (I want to say it is Martha Stewart brand, but I am not positive and I no longer have the wrapper or label).

I love how these cards turned out.

I tried it with both large and small scalloped Spellbinders rectangle dies. I did discover it was easiest to cut the scallop shape then adhere the white card stock rectangle and finally punch the SU! Butterfly shape through the layers. The sentiment is from SU! A Tin of Cards set and stamped in SU! Real Red.
