Christmas Cheer Part Five

Getting pretty close to Christmas now.  There is still time to make a few cards!! 
Here are a few more of the cards I made to send to friends and family.

 Used the gate fold base in the cards below.  On Part one, I have listed the cuts and score lines for the folds.  Check it out here.

This card is a standard card and I used the same mitten stamp on the cup.

One more post to go....check back for the last part ...part six.

Christmas Cheer Part Four

Hello Again!
Part Four of Christmas Cheer, today!!  More of the gate folds.

I used a Poinsettia die on the first, and die cut the cup from a paper with the  cardinal.  The third card is stamped with a poinsettia and some holly leaves. 

I used some pastel colors for this card and paired it with a bright red background.

Hope you are having a lovely day.  See you next time for Part Five!!

Hello Friends,
Sharing more on my Christmas cards today with part two of Christmas Cheer.  I used the same stamp and die set throughout all the cards.  See part one here

The first two cards have lots of bling with gold metallic doilies, metallic paper, and gold glitter glue.

I made some woodsy cards here.  A little bunny and a moose. Pretty cute!??

Did a little bit of coloring on the bunny.

Christmas Cheer Part One

Hello Everyone! 
Back today to share the cards I made for Christmas this year.  I used one stamp set and matching die set.  I think that was easier than having to pull out 10 stamp sets.  So, let's get started!

This group of cards use a gate fold pattern.  I added glitter paper to some, stamped the cups, or die cut the cups, and used a decorative paper background.

In this pic, you can see the folds and how the center piece overlaps the front edge of the card base.
This gate fold is quite easy:
Cut the cardstock at 5.5 x 8.5
Score at 2 1/8  and 6 3/8
Fold the side flaps into the center

I stamped this cute house (which was from another set...) on the cup and used the glitter paper.

I already sent all the cards out.  I have made a few masculine birthday cards as well.  And, I will share those after Christmas.
Thanks for stopping by.  Check back in a few days for Part Two of Christmas Cheer.
