December Christmas Inspiration for Kre8tors Blog Hop

It’s time to get Komfy, it’s time to get Kozy, it’s time to get Kre8tiv! Welcome back Kre8tors! Today we have a super fun blog hop for you to follow because we are showcasing Christmas Cards! To me, nothing beats a cold, wintery day bundled up inside with some hot coffee, a huge sweater, and craft time! So come hop along with some amazingly talented Stampin’ Up!®️Independent Demonstrators from around the world and get inspired during our Kre8tors Blog Hop!

I am so in love with these cards, it’s ridiculous! They just seem super cozy to me, and I’m not sure if it’s because it reminds me of a house and Christmas time, or just what it is… Of course I was scouring Pinterest for some inspiration and came across a post from The Paper Collage with a cute little French Door Gatefold Card. I definitely had to CASE it and tweak some aspects to be able to use the materials that I had on hand.

For the red card I used Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and Whisper White Craft Ink for the distressed areas. I used Very Vanilla on the inside and stamped the sentiment with Cherry Cobber ink. The greenery on the doors is done with Shaded Spruce Cardstock, and the bow is made out of some Whisper White Baker’s Twine. I added two little silver brads for the door knobs, and YAY! French Doors!

The second card is a little more elegant, with a Whisper White base and metallic accents. You can see how it all came together in my video tutorial below!

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 2-1/8″ from each end.
Whisper White Panels (2 of each size):
1-3/4″ x 3-1/4″
1-1/2″ x 3″
1-1/2″ x 1-3/4″
1-1/4″ x 1-1/2″
Whisper White Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Shaded Spruce Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Champagne Foil: Scrap approximately 2″ x 5″

Clean & Quick Cards SERIES 3

Here’s a Star Ornament card for the third card in my series Clean & Quick Cards. I really like how clean this card looks. It takes very few materials and can be made out of virtually any punch or framelit that gives a solid shape.

I also really like how the silver foil shines through. I used Calypso Coral but any color would look fantastic with this card!

Measurements:

Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″
Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Silver Foil: 1-1/2″ x 1-1/2″

Christmas Pines Masculine Card

Hello Kre8tors! Here’s a super quick Masculine Christmas Card featuring the Christmas Pines stamp set and the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies. I really like the simplicity of this card, and the layout on this card is one I’m using as a challenge in my VIP Stamp Lounge, exclusive to my customers. This was a quick card and would make a great mass production card for Christmas cards this year. I hope you enjoy, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday!

Christmas Tidings Half Front Fold Card

I really wanted to do something a little different, but still quick and easy. I decided to do a Half Front Fold card using some shimmery cardstock and glimmer paper. I used Christmas Pines stamp set with the beautiful sentiment and stars. It’s an oldie but a goodie. I love how it turned out! What do you think?

Copper Christmas Pines Card

My inspiration from this card came from using a non-traditional Christmas color with my Pool Party Satin Ribbon. . . and so this card was born! The three pieces of black cardstock on this card were all cut from ONE piece that measures 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″! Watch the video to see how!

I love how the black makes the Pool Party POP and gives this card a bold statement. And the Copper is simply GORGEOUS in the pine cones.
