Christmas SAS

Card 1

This card was copied almost exactly from cards I saw here.  I changed the punch used for the buckle.  I think the sentiment from the Just Believe set is perfect for this card!

sets - just believe, sassy salutations
cs - real red 8.5 x 5.5", blk 4.25 x 1" belt and scraps for buttons, wh 3.75 x 5' guts and beard, champagne or silver glimmer paper
ink - blk and real red pads
access - jolly jingles jumbo wheel (for env), big shot and apothecary accents framelits
punches - 1/2" circle, 1" sq, curly label

  1. Punch out the square and center the curly label punch over the hole to create the buckle.
  2. Adhere the blk belt across the red card; then adhere glimmer buckle on top and the blk belt will show through the 1" sq opening.

Card 1 - inside

Card 2
I was inspired to create this card by this card Tammy, gave me.  The inside was inspired by my friend Cheryl's design.  I like the way she used the punch out on the inside.

sets- curly cute
cs- wh 5.5 x 8.5", raspberry ripple, 5 x 3.75", bs multi purpose adhesive sheet 2" sq
ink- raspberry ripple pad
access- bs & lacey brocade TIEF various ribbon scraps, corner rounder, ornament punch. dazzling diamonds glitter
Card 2 - inside, the ornament punch out is textured

Card 3
I made this Christmas card and have a gazillion oval punch outs, so I designed the third card to use up some of them.

sets- watercolor winter, delightful dozen
cs- cherry cobbler 4.25 x 11", vanilla 3.75 x 5" guts and extra large oval punch out
ink- early espresso and garden green pads, rose red marker

Card 3 -inside

Card 4 - option A
This card was inspired by a card I saw by Krista Fenton on Stampin' Connection, an exclusive site where demonstrators share cards, videos, etc.  It's so simple!  I made a bunch of the birthday ones for male family members who have Dec b-days.

sets- watercolor winter, bring on the cake, teeny tiny wishes or peaceful season (retired hostess set)
cs- confetti cream 5.5 x 8.5" and 4.25 x 2.75" (retired, but you can substitute naturals ivory)

Card 4 - option A inside

Card 4 - option B

Card 4 - option B inside

Card 5
I fell in love with this set.  I think I'll make this card for next year.  I thought it would be pretty to do the stained glass technique on the main image (click here to view a card and info on the technique)

Card 6 - Money Card

Card 6 - Money Card - inside
The final card was copied almost exactly from Barb Mulikin.  She said she makes a lot of these money cards.  I can see why because they are quite easy.

sets- tags 'til christmas
cs- cherry cobbler 6.5 x 9.5", chocolate chip 2.75 x 6.25", be of good cheer dsp 2.5 x 6" vanilla scraps for punching
ink- gumball green cherry cobbler and chocolate chip markers, chocolate chip pad
access- 24" cobbler tulle ribbon, sticky strip, dimensionals
punches- scallop square, decorative label

  1. score the cobbler base card at 3-1/8" and 6.5"
  2. fold it up and cut the shortest flap on the diagonal
  3. add sticky strip to the wide edge of that flap to create the money pocket
Have a very Merry Christmas!  Mary
