XMAS Card Kit Club-Lattice and Lace Easel Combining a few techniques that I’ve been posting this month into one versatile card design.  Tags and interior panels are done in an ink blot, tag lace is using the white papertwine cording and my gift tag bases are the teepee diecut technique discussed on the tips and tricks page.  Everybody loves the easel card design, and the lattice pocket allow you to send along some other goodies with your Christmas Cards.

XMAS Card Kit Club-Flip Snowflake I had so much fun putting this “Flip” card together that I got carried away… and am publishing an entirely independant technique/design video on “Flip Fancy fold cards”.   Mostly to talk to the folks that are replicating the design using their own tools and materials.  It’s a ha-cha-cha-cha design and a wonderful piece to display on the mantel.  XMAS card kits always come with a couple of coordintating gift tags.  Take a look!

title shotMIY Christmas Card - Sparkling Tree I’m luving this design and luving this product.  A lot of sparkle and shine, but amazingly enough – still “earthy” looking.  I’m thinking the over stamping in Stayz-On helps, but the elements in the Encrusted Jewels collections steal the show.  Video is step-by-step beginning with card stocks and products.
