Sweet Stockings and Christmas to Remember - let's make something cute!

 


I love this simple fun fold as it just changes my cards up in an easy way.  Also, I'm excited to create more Christmas card ideas for animal lovers! 


Here is the card that I made and used as a jumping off point for the other cards.



These little animals are just so sweet.  Did you see the hampster?  ha ha

The Card Recipe!

Measurements:

Card Base - Old Olive Cardstock - 7 1/4 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4

Layer 1 - Sweet Stockings DSP - 2 3/4 x 5 1/4

Card Insert - Basic White Cardstock - 4 x 5 1/4

Card Insert Strip - 1 1/4 x 5 1/4 


Here are the Stampin' Up! products that I used.  

Paper Snips
[103579]
$13.50



For the second card, I changed up the colour combinations, to add Cherry Cobbler.  I fussy cut out some of the little animals sticking out of the stockings.





For the third card, I decided to cut out an extra dog and cat to pop them up along the side, with dimensionals.  



The Hippo & Friends dies make such a nice sentiment layer!




For the last card, I decided to focus on the card pattern side of the Designer Series Paper instead of the animals.  I used the dies from Frosted Gingerbread to make the stars and the detailed foil parts. 






Which card was your favourite from today?



There are so many fun possibilities using this fun "Sweet Stockings" Designer Series Paper and the "Christmas to Remember" stamp set.





I love thow these sentiments lend themselves to go on the front of the card or on the card insert.  The font is larger and the writing mixed with the printing, makes this a great Christmas word set!

Cat or Dog Person? There's a card for everyone!

  Another simple card layout idea that anyone can make.  I love how it showcases the animals from the Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper....
