Clean And Simple Christmas Shaker Cards

November 24, 2019

Hello everybody, it’s Sanna Lippert here again today with another guest design team project. For today’s post I have prepared a set of clean and simple style Christmas shaker cards with a photo step-by-step tutorial. I wanted to create simple looking, yet sparkly cards and this is what I ended up creating.

Here is how I created the cards:

Take a sheet of white Soft Finish Cardstock and cut it into two card base sizes you have prepared for cardmaking. Then place the white cardstock pieces into your die cutting machine and die cut a Fitted Star and a Fitted Circle with it. Place the die cut centered, but onto the upper part of the cardstock piece. Then die cut.

Next die cut from the residue sheet of white Soft Finished Cardstock some rows of houses using the Village Edges die cut die set. The images don´t have to be perfect all the way to the end, because you will only be using parts of them.

Now grab some Distress Oxides of your choice (I used Peacock Feathers and Fossilized Amber) and apply the oxide with an ink blending tool with circular motion onto the white card base background approximately to the area where the star and the circle will be. This way you create a coloured background to that area.

Then stamp a sentiment with black ink under the star and the circle areas. I used the Winter Sentiments clear stamp set here, but you can pick a sentiment set of your choice.

Now arrange the rows of houses under the star and the circle areas and adhere on place. You could also totally stop here and adhere the pieces together or you can follow the step to create shaker cards.

Here is an image of how I adhered the rows of houses onto the card.

Next apply Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto the background of the die cut piece and then cut a piece of transparent acetate and place it on top of the adhesive.

For the next step, take some 3D foam and apply it aroud the edges of the card as well as around the circle and star image to create a place where to apply the confetti later. Make sure there are no open areas between the foam pieces in the area you are going to place the confetti into later, otherwise the confetti will move to areas you don´t want it to be in.

Now take confetti of your choice and place it onto the inked area of the card base. Then attach the 3D foam treated piece on top and press on place. Add faux stitching around the edges of the cards and if you want to, also around the die cut circle and star area.

Here are the finished cards. I think they turned out really nice.

I hope you have enjoyed today’s Christmas card tutorial. I’ll be stopping by the blog once more in December to share my last guest blog post of the year.

See you then! Happy crafting!

How To Create A Christmas Card Using Planner Essentials Dies

November 14, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Merry Christmas Card.

I love the fact that the Planner Essentials dies can be used for more than just my planner spreads. So, to create my card, I’ve used a variety of dies from the Planner Essentials collection, Joset Designs and Els van de Burgt Studio. I hope you enjoy my tutorial!

Step One. You’ll need to choose two patterned papers from the Christmas Market Collection. Die cut the 4 1/2″ Stitched Rectangle out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut the 4″ Stitched Rectangle out of the other patterned paper. Distress the edges of the rectangles. Ink the edges of the rectangles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Use the reverse side of the patterned paper used on the 4 1/2″ stitched rectangle and die cut the 1″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtails out of. Choose another piece of patterned paper from the Christmas Market collection and die cut the 1 1/2″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtails out the paper. Cut the 1″ fishtail down to 4 1/4″. Cut the 1 1/2″ fishtail down to 4 3/4″. Distress the edges of each fishtail. Ink the edges of each fishtail using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Die cut two base trees and each patterned tree from the Planner Essentials – 12 die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. The chevron tree will stay white. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Fired Brick Distress Ink over the entire surface of the dotted tree. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of both base trees. Ink the edges of the base trees and dotted tree using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. From the same Planner Essentials – 12 die, die cut a small star and medium star out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam over the entire surface of each star. Ink the edges of each star using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. From the Planner Essentials – 14 die, die cut the Merry Christmas sentiment out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Six. Adhere the 4″ stitched rectangle to the 4 1/2″ stitched rectangle. Foam square the 1 1/2″ fishtail 1″ from the right and all the way to the top of the 4″ stitched rectangle. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the 1″ fishtail 7/8″ from the left and all the way to the top of the 4″ stitched rectangle. The fishtails will over lap.

Step Seven. Adhere the trees together. On the dotted tree, adhere the small star at the top. On the chevron tree, adhere the medium star at the top. Foam square the chevron tree 1/4″ from the right and 5/8″ from the bottom of the 4″ stitched rectangle. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the dotted tree 1/2″ from the left and 3/8″ from the bottom of the 4″ stitched rectangle.

Step Eight. Adhere the Merry to the middle of the dotted tree. Adhere the Christmas to the bottom section of the dotted tree. The Christmas word will hang slightly off the left side of the tree and will adhere to the chevron tree.

Step Nine. Cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5 3/4″ x 9″, score at 4 1/2″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Merry Christmas Card.

Repeat the previous step for stamping the honeycomb eight more times. Ink the edges of the page using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Die cut the 1,2,3,4,5 label from the Planner Labels die out of Kraft cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Habit Tracker stamp and stamp onto the kraft cardstock label.

Repeat the previous step with stamping the Weekly Stamp onto the White Soft Finish Cardstock, making sure to leave a bit of room in between each Weekly word. Using the 3/8″ Stitched Fishtail Banner, die cut each Weekly word out. Use a black gel pen to add the dates on each weekly banner. Ink the edges of the banners and label out of Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 3. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Water tracking stamp and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Repeat the previous step eleven more times on the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the squares using Black Soot Distress Ink. Colour in the water drops for the water that has been consumed.

Step 4. Adhere the Habit Tracker label 3/8″ above the page. Adhere the Weekly banners as desired on the page.

Step 5. Adhere three of the water drop squares under each weekly banner.

Step 6. To finish off the page, use a white gel pen to highlight some of the edges of the honeycombs.
