I’ve wanted to make a card with a patchwork background created with the Tailored Tag punch ever since I bought which was, a long time ago. Finally I’ve pulled out the Christmastime Is Here Speciality DSP and created this christmas card.
I used 18 punch out tags in four different designs, but you can use any number of patterns you like, just try not to put the same patterns next to each other when you form your patchwork. I adhered these by using Liquid Glue on the card base.
I added a little swirl of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon to add some interest and then placed the large label from the Roses dies over the top with the greeting stamped in Cherry Cobbler. I finished with some of my favourite Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.
The Christmastime Is Her suite is only available until the end of the month so if you still thinking about purchasing these products you only have a few days left, I’m just debating how many extra packets of Gold Glitter Enamel Dots I should order.
For this card I was inspired by the little elf and his santas workshop sign so decided to make a card which looked like the outside of the workshop. So I’ve used the Pinewood Planks 3D embossing folder with Crumb Cake cardstock to create my background and matted thisn on a layer of Real Red.
I coloured the little elf and the parcel with Stampin’ Blends and then fussy cut him out. I used a mix of Real Red, Call Me Clover and Bermuda Bay for the colouring.
I stamped the greeting from the same #Elfie stamp set onto a square cut from the Layering Squares Dies and then mounted this onto a scalloped Real Red sqaure from the same set.
To finish the card I added three Real Red Glitter Enamel Dots from the Toile Tidings pack.
Think its time this cheeky little elf got back to work now, don’t you.
This is the first card I made with the new Christmastime Is Here Suite of products. How gorgeous is that rose and its cut from the designer paper with a die so this stunning card came together in minutes.
I love that with the die you can cut the paper or stamp the rose outline and then cut that out so all the beautiful detail is kept and not lost with a fussy cutting mishap.
I’ve added some extra detail to this card by using the corner dies to cut some goild foil. I think they look like corners of an ornate frame and I was tempted to added a gold foil matt under the green layer but though that might be too much.
I added a little greeting from Itty Bitty Christmas. I stampe dit in Golden Glitz Delicata ink and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch. To fix it to the card I cut a little slit up near the pine cone so it could slot it among the foiliage and not detract too much from the goregous rose image.
I’m sharing another project today made with the Most Wonderful Time, showing how just a piece of Designer Paper, a greeting and a few stickers can make a gorgeous card.
I love the new Delicata inks they stamp beautifully and leave a gorgeous shimmer. I used a blender pen to grab some ink and coloured the reindeer antlers to add a little more gold to the card.
A few Gold Metallic Pearls finish off this card. I’ll be sharing more from this product medley next week.

This Christmas card is fairly simple to put togther as long as you don’t mind at little fussy cutting for the holly leaves.
The background paper comes from the Come to Gather DSP, I love the linen effect of this paper and think it could work for a variety of projects.
Here’s a close up of the holly leaves coloured with Stampin’ Blends and the fussy cut out. I love a bit of fussy cutting, especially at this time of year when I’m spending cosy nights in front of the fire. If you’re not a fan of fussy cutting then you could use the holly berry stamp and dies from the Free Skate Bundle.
The greeting and frame come from the Frosted Foliage Bundle which contains some lovely sentiments.Basic Measurements:
A simple card which is easy to replicate if you want to make a sttart on those Christmas cards.
