I promised I’d post the first of my Christmas Cards today so here I am at the last minute again. I’m sure those of you who are preparing for the big feast tomorrow can understand that I got a little busy today with last minute things. After the silver was polished and table set I realized I didn’t have the matching napkins. Well, they must be in one of the MANY boxes in the garage that are STILL not unpacked. This is the Never Ending Move! Guess we’ll either be using paper napkins or some that sort of match! 🙂
I love this card and it was a big hit with my card classes. Hope you like it. I got the directions for the Tri-Shutter fold from Julie Davison.
Here is the front view as you would take it out of the envelope. That Joy just makes the star pop.
Here is the card starting to open up.
Here is the inside sentiment.
Last one is a close up of the inside. Check out how nicely the house tops match up with the bottoms.
Well, this is the first of four Christmas Cards (so far). Hoping you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! We have so much to be thankful for in our country.
Yikes, with all the AWESOME Stampin’ Up! promotions going on I almost missed posting our Weekly Deals. Well, it’s still Tuesday in CA so I made it. 🙂
Just click on the image below to go directly to my site to order.
I must tell you that the Dazzling Details are a steal. I love to use it to add a little glitz without adding bumps to my cards (to save on postage with big mailings – like Christmas cards). If you’ve never tried Dazzling Details now is definitely the time – you can’t beat the price!
Tomorrow I will post one of my Christmas Cards from class…see you then!

Have I already told you how great the November Paper Pumpkin is? Well, not only did the kit have 8 awesome cards but 12, yes, one dozen fantastic Gift Tags!
Here is what it looks like closed. Great, huh! The directions suggested putting the To and From on the right but that didn’t seem correct to me since there was no room to write the names. Well, you can see a tiny bit of From on my version because I stamped To From on the left. It doesn’t bother me. 🙂
Here is the tag open. Cool! I love them!
Seriously think about subscribing to Paper Pumpkin. You can ask for the subscription as a gift!
I’ve been busy making Christmas Cards…lots of CASEing going on. Why reinvent the wheel when there are sooooo many ideas out there. Watch for future posts of Christmas Cards!
I just received my November Paper Pumpkin yesterday and I am totally in love with this set. Stampin’ Up hit it out of the park with this one. I made the cards first thing this morning because I thought I’d sell them at the Craft Fair tomorrow but now I’m thinking they are so cute I just might want to keep them!
Here’s what the card looks like and the matching snowflake punch out for the envelope. Tip: The punch outs for the envelope do not have adhesive so I ran them through my Xyron…super easy and no glue mess.
Close up of this super card. There are a lot of steps but so worth it.
Here’s a view peeking inside. All the stamps were included with Lost Lagoon ink.
This shows the inside and sentiment attached with Washi Tape 🙂 Large Rhinestones were included but I decided to use stars punched out in Silver Glimmer Paper to make the mailing easier.
I followed the directions pretty much as pictured and I’m quite happy with the results.
If you have been thinking about subscribing to Paper Pumpkin – do it! The kits have improved greatly since they were first introduced. I actually dropped my own subscription after the first few months then I saw the huge improvement and started back up again. Haven’t been disappointed at all.
Paper Pumpkin would make a wonderful gift for someone you know. Click on the image for enlargement and some details.
