Hi there, it’s Katelyn from A Creative Journey guest designing on the blog today and sharing with you these three fun Christmas Gift Tags that can be added to any holiday gift. With Christmas right around the corner I thought it would be fun to create these gift tags using a variety of fun Christmas dies from Joset Designs and pair them with Els van de Burgt dies. Let me share with you how to create each tag at home.
Hello everyone, It’s Joset here today sharing some fun and easy Christmas Tree Decorations. They are all made out of felt in combination with Elizabeth Craft Designs Clear Double Sided Adhesive. I created a guirlande simular to Frances Byrne’s Christmas Banner from last week. For the ornaments I used a few different Christmas/Winter themed dies that I thought would be fun to use but there are many more that would work as well. Let me show you how I created them but first let’s start with the guirlande.
It’s my turn to post a tutorial on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today. Christmas is now only a month away, and in my family we like to start decorating our house on December 1st so for my tutorial today I have created a fun decoration using the Gingerbread Man and Lollypop die sets.
I have made my banner using three Gingerbread Men and four lollypops, but of course you can make yours as long as you want depending on where you wish to use it. I have also made my decoration double-sided so it can be hung on a window, in a doorway, etc., so looks good whichever side you look at it. This, of course, is optional depending again on where you will be using the decoration.
Hello crafters! Mary here today with a pop up Christmas card. There are a lot of really cute Christmas patterned papers and cardstock. If you can’t find the one I used, there are others featuring gingerbread men (I had several to choose from in my stash from different manufacturers). I made my die cuts look like the images on the patterned cardstock (or at least close).
Do you decorate your Christmas tree with Gingerbread cookies. Joset Designs new Gingerbread Man die set is perfect to create cute cards, scrapbook holiday pages, and to make garlands for your tree. Good Morning. This is Selma today and I have a card using the Gingerbread Man die set, the new A Way With Words – Merry Christmas 2 die, Susan’s Garden Notes new Poinsettia-Small die set. Here is how the card was created.
Gingerbread Man Topiary Tree Cards
By Judi Kauffman
I’m back as today’s guest designer with a project that takes the new Joset Designs Gingerbread Man die in an unexpected direction: As a shape for topiary* trees. Did you know that one of Santa’s elves is a gardener when he’s not getting ready for the holidays? Well, that’s how I imagine it…
These cards are designed for someone blind or with impaired vision, as well as for the sighted. For those who ‘see’ by the sense of touch, the textures tell the story: Shimmer Sheetz, a wooden stir stick, felt, Velvet Adhesive Sheets, cork, woven and knotted seam tape, layered rectangles made of heavy cardstsock. I shut my eyes as a test and was able to figure out everything but the greeting, though I think I would have had a tough time with the leaves if I hadn’t already known what they were. (*Dictionary definition – “Topiary: The art or practice of clipping shrubs or trees into ornamental shapes.”
