Creating the Perfect Christmas Card

Hello again!  It's Gina here to share some simple cards that I made for Christmas this year using the brand new All Wrapped Up collection. I don't know about you, but I love to make handmade cards for the family, especially at Christmas time.  The brand new All Wrapped Up collection is perfect for this!

Don't Open Until December 25th card:  
I started by creating my card base by trimming my background out of white Bazzill cardstock using a mason jar tag.  Once the base of the card was created, I simply ran my two chosen patterned papers through my Silhouette machine using the same cut file.  For the bottom I used the blue snowflake pattern and for the top I used the white Christmas dot pattern.  I placed both pieces on the base of my card front, then used a sewing machine to sew the top piece (lid) down.  Next I wrapped two layers of white and gold twine around the base of my lid and tied together to make a cute little accent.  Next, I hand cut a tag from 'Twas The Night paper and adhered it to the front of the card using a gold glittered clothespin.  I finished up my card by adding a festive button to my design.

Merry Christmas Card:
 
I started my card by first creating my card base out of Bazzill white cardstock paper.  I sized my card to measure 6"x6" inches.  Next, I trimmed a Christmas star out of white cardstock paper using a cut file from the Silhouette store.  Once my star was cut, I trimmed pieces from various patterned papers from the All Wrapped up collection and placed them behind different points on the star.  Once I was finished with my design I adhered it to my card face.  For my sentiment I trimmed the Merry Christmas message from patterned paper and adhered it to my card.  I then finished up by adding some loose threads and a delights sticker.
