Pop it ups Wednesday with Caz – Gift Card Holder

With the holiday season drawing near there are sure to be people on your shopping lists who have asked for a gift card.  These often seem a bit impersonal, but if you make a gift card holder you can show the recipient just how much you care.

Here I have used the Katie Label Accordion for the place where the card is kept and below I explain how I did it.

Hello Everyone, Christine here from Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s Design Team.

Christmas is fast approaching hope that you all have your holiday shopping well underway. I wish you the happiest of holidays! It does not look much like Christmas here yet, the little snow that we have had was quickly washed away with rain but there is still time for a white Christmas.

My post today is a simple little snowman card. This card could be used as a Christmas Card but also could be used for a winter occasion. Here is how the card was made. Continue reading

Christmas Thank You

2016dec3christmasthankyou1a

Happy Saturday to you!!!  Wanda here 🙂  It’s just 3 weeks until Christmas and I can hardly believe how quickly this year has flown by.   In the hustle and bustle of life we don’t always have time or take time to send out thank yous.  If I do make some, they are often something quick.  Sometimes I want to send a special thank you and I think this card would qualify for that!!   Continue reading

Holiday Ring Accordion with Hanging Charms

Card Front

Mary here. This is a fun card that looks complicated but is fairly simple to make. I especially love the hanging charms, the silver glitter, and entwined frames.

Making the Card

1. With the main Ring Accordion die, cut two from snowflake paper (Wish List), one from candy cane paper (Magical), and two from red cardstock. Use the circle die to cut the center from both snowflake rings, one candy cane ring, and one red ring. Trim tabs, etc., off of one snowflake ring and one red ring so you just have 2 circle frames. Use the decorator edge die to cut 4 from red cardstock and 4 from white cardstock. Adhere the red edges to the back of the snowflake ring and the white to the front of the red ring.

Christmas Tree Decorations
