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″

Baby Wipe Technique with Colorful Seasons

I can’t believe this is the first time I’ve tried the Baby Wipe technique! It’s SOO much fun and I think the Colorful Seasons bundle is perfect to test this out. I used both leaf stamps along with the coordinating framelits to make this card. The detailed leaf thinlit really punches it up a notch, too! Let me know if you’ve tried this technique by posting it on Facebook or Instagram and tagging me by using #mkre8tions or @mkre8tions

Christmas Tree Farm Shaker Card

One of my most favorite memories about Christmas is traveling with my family to a Tree Farm to pick out our Christmas Tree.

I wanted to capture that feeling in a fun shaker card!
