I decided to make some of these cards. You could make them for any season really. Just change the theme and color schemes of the cards. Here are two that I made. I'll be making another one too, and I'll post the pictures when I finish it. I'm not going to put the step by step directions on here because you can go watch Sandi's video demonstration which will probably be easier and quicker to understand than my typed out directions. But here are my cards.
The first one it did I just recreated the one in the Scrapbook Showgram video with a few minor changes.
-Instead of punching holes in the tree, I glued punched out holes on. First I punched paper with the smaller hole punch, then I went back and repunched over those holes with the standard size hole punch. Thats how you get the little holes in the middle.
-I also glued the trees down on the front too instead of leaving them loose for handles. I didn't glue on the right where the red strip inserts so that it can come free and allow the card to open. But it is attached on the left. This helped my card to stay closed better.
Here is the second card. Snowman!!
-The eyes are googly eyes. :) It makes it more fun.
- Everything else is paper. I used a paper punch for the snow flakes. And a rubber stamp for the 'Happy Holidays'.
-I hate to draw attention to it in case you didn't see it, but that smudge on the snowman is ink that I got on my finger while stamping. I didn't know it was there until it was too late and I smudged my snowman :(.
One more card. This one features a present on the front. The ribbon ties together to help keep it closed and is easily untied. (I would have used all blue ribbon, but I ran out!! I even went to the store to see if I could find some more, but they didn't have it anymore. So I had to use another color.)
While the basic pattern of this card is not my own idea, but Sandi Genovese's, I still personally hand made these cards. So, on any card I make, I like to label it as my own. Not taking credit for the design per say, but for the physical card. I always label them 'Kelsey's Kards' on the back. This is how I chose to label them on these specific cards. Color coordinating of course. Ornaments!! I thought it was a rather festive idea. :)
Hope you liked them!!My friend requested a Penguin card, so if I'm able to make it, I'll post pictures later. It might be a bit more tricky, but I'll give a whirl.
