This week, the design team will be focusing on Christmas and Holiday cards to get your card giving season jump started.
Leslie is up first with two beautifully detailed projects. Leslie says, 'I love tags. For this card I made 3 small tags (2x4) with the middle one slightly longer (2x4.5) and using 3D adhesive, slightly above the outer tags. Adding some jute as ribbon & mixed stickers to decorate each tag, I think this card turned out so cute for that someone special!'

I wanted to play on the snowflakes for this wintery card â€“ so I used the round snowflake stickers as my main embellishment with a journaling card as my sentiment.

On the other hand, when you don't have the time to be super detailed, you still want design that has impact. Ursula created the first card using only stamps and a few wood veneer shapes.
To pump up the impact, place one of the 'Merry Christmas' phrases in the center and emboss using silver embossing powder.

The next two cards demonstrate starting with a similar design. However, you can go different directions even with the same basic elements. I die cut the starts which fold and pop up to create dimension.
This first one utilizes the Lily Bee ABC Cardstock stickers to create a sentiment. A bit of stitching both anchors the sentiment and provides classic detail.

The second card continues with the theme of the single star, but anchors it on a base of patterned paper. Zig zag stitch over some twine as a border to add a bit of color and texture. Cut the sentiment from one of the Mixed Cardstock stickers and center at the top of the design.
