Good morning Fancy Pants Designs fans! Do you need some last minute holiday card ideas? I have a couple cards to share today using leftovers from an upcoming project using the Holiday Hustle collection (stay tuned) that I was able to put to good use for a few last minute cards that I needed for this holiday season.
See a theme? Circles. Love me some circles and a trusty circle punch will take you far! I punched several circles for another project and has too many left over to toss. So, why not build some simple patterns on some cards right? I started with the tree shape, moving different sized circles around until I got the tree shape just right, adding in some holiday required sparkle to any gaps in the design.
I finished this one off quickly with a JOY stamped tree stump from the Merry & Bright collection. These stamps are so perfect to add a little holiday greeting!
Next, I still had more punched circles left over – so I created this card with a confetti like feel for the circles this time.
Again, I added in a stamped sentiment and more bling – a requirement for holiday cards, don’t you think!
Vicki here today to share another Home Decor project for the holidays. The Holiday Hustle Collection is so fun and inspiring, filled with pretty papers, and matching ephemera, tags, buttons ect. So much to inspire you when creating your projects.
I found this plain inexpensive wood star at the local craft store, and thought it would be a fun base for these adorable pieces from this collection.
This project came together easy. As a matter of fact I’m thinking it would be a great project for my craft group.
I love using foam squares and tape to give some of my pieces dimension. It looked especially cool on this project because the car seems to look like its riding on top of the snow.
It’s always my favorite part of my projects.. to go back and add little bits of interest. These buttons are just adorable! I really wanted to incorporate this cute little bow, and I found the perfect spot for it.
After adding a few sprigs of greenery I added a Fancy Pants Cork star to the top to finish it off.
I have this hanging on the cupboard door of my Hoosier and it looks adorable.
I hope you feel inspired to create a little holiday diy project of your own.
Hello friend, today I am sharing a few cards, to help inspire and motivate you to finish up those last minute holiday cards. I love to make cards, and I love opening the mailbox and seeing a card sent to me. Its an inexpensive way to tell someone you are thinking of them.
With just a few diecuts, pattern paper and ribbon, you have a beautiful card on your hands. The 6×6 Holiday Hustle and die cut ephemera pack, are the perfect combo, to create multiple cards!
I am about to tell you all a secret. When you use foam adhesive, it creates depth, and gives the illusion of a professional card. It really is the secret behind the cards I make.
Adding the little strip of pattern paper to the bottom of the card, helps to visually balance the bottom of the card.
For this next card, I wanted to create a scene using diecuts and pattern paper. First I diecut a scalloped rectangle using paper from the Holiday Hustle 6×6 pad, then adhered it using foam adhesive. Using a few tree die cuts fro the Ephemera kit, adhered them to the pattern paper using foam adhesive. Next the car die cut was added and adhered to the card, along with the sentiment. To embellish a bow was added.
Adding a little bit of black will always make a card “pop”. The “hustle & bustle” sentiment was the perfect choice.
Here are three different ways to use the Holiday Hustle collection, I hope they inspired you to send cards this holiday season!
