For Christmas this year I made a card box for my Grandma I gave her several of the cards I've made this year. For the last couple weeks instead of making new cards I finished the insides of several cards. I saw this project on My Pink Stamper's volume 3 DVD. The flower I made by cutting several different size circles, melting the edges, gluing the layers together, and gluing 3 pearls in the center of the flower. Hope she likes it! Have a wonderful Christmas!!!!
Here are a couple more glitter ornaments I made with the kids. Sorry about the bad pictures, it's really hard to get a good picture of glass. On these ornaments we used Christmas rub-ons from Michaels, I found them in the aisle with the glass ornaments. The gold one is actually a plastic one, I wanted to see if the plastic ones would work. I thought they would be a little more kid friendly. It worked really well with the glitter it glue. I'm curious to see what these look like next year. Have a Wonderful Christmas!!!
My daughter and I made these ornaments with glitter-it glue and vinyl cut on the cricut. My Pink Stamper has a video showing how to make the ornament and My Creative Time has a video showing these with different ways to decorate the ornaments. This is an ornament that turns out so pretty. I made these with the 3rd - 6th grade girls at church last week and they were a huge hit! They are glass so be careful, my daughter broke hers so we made a new one today. The fine glitter works so much better then regular glitter. We used some glitter from Signature Crafts and some Martha Stewart glitter. I ordered the glitter it from Signature Crafts, I could not find it at any of the craft stores by me. It is suppose to be by the Christmas crafts but I could not find it anywhere. Have a great weekend!
Today's challenge at 365 Cards is pretty pockets-create 2 pockets on your card. You can do this in the card, on the front, the card can be a pocket - It's up to you how you go about this, as long as there are 2 pockets. I made a double pocket card, I found a video here that shows how to make this card. I put a tag in the first pocket and a gift card holder in the 2nd pocket to hold cash or a gift card. Have a great day! *** I made another card the same way so I added the picture of that one too.
Made by Momo has a challenge this week to make treat bag or box. I used tags, bags, boxes & more and winter woodland for this bag. This is the perfect size for some lip gloss for my daughter. Have a great day!
The challenge for day 276 at 365 Cards is ephemera. Yeah, I was wondering too... It's that stuff that you hang on to and think you might use again? For instance, some tickets to a great show, an old postcard, or a poster from a particular era might be some things you could incorporate into a card. I have a bunch of tickets saved for scrapbook pages that worked nicely for another guy card. Have a great day!
