Just for You! CardzTV 3D Challenge

It is time once again for a new 3D challenge over at CardzTV. The new challenge is "Just for You", make a gift card holder.  Here is what I did.

I found the pattern in the Silhouette Store.  I cut the image at the default size. If I were to make it again, I would increase the size by about 10 to 15%. When finished the gift card was a tight fit. I cut the back layer of my card out of green card stock. The front is cut from some patterned paper from the Doodlebug 6" X 6" Home for the Holidays paper pad.  

I adhered the front and back together with some tombow mono multi adhesive.  I stamped the sentiment on the cuff of my stocking with Cottage Ivy Memento Ink.

My sentiment is from the Christmas Joy CardzTV stamp set.

To finish the card, I used my white gel pen to add some stitching lines to my stocking and the patches on the toe and heal.  I used a Spica glitter pen in Olive to add the stitching lines to the cuff. To close my card, I added a small magnetic disc closure.

Now it is your turn. Create a Gift Card holder and link your project up over at CardzTV.  Mary will be giving away a set of stamps and will select a winner using  Challenge runs for two weeks. Be sure to pay CardzTV Stamps a visit and get your holiday stamps ordered.

Thank You Card!

I made this quick card today to thank someone who has been a big help to me this past week with getting some paperwork completed so I could get it turned in.

This cute little mouse is a Print and Cut image from the Silhouette store. 

My card base is Kraft card stock cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base. I added a blue mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and the polka dot mat cut at 3 7/8" X 5 1/8".  I then took a piece of the left over blue paper and embossed half of it with an Anna Griffin border embossing folder. I stamped my sentiment with Memento Tuxedo black ink and adhered the mat to my card. My little mouse is adhered to the card with some foam tape. I added some orange enameled dots to finish the card.

Christmas Kitsch Snowman Card

I just got the new Anna Griffin Christmas Kitsch cartridge, so of course I had to make a card.  This snowman caught my eye so I decided to start with him.

I cut the snowman out at 5" using my Cricut Explore machine.  The base of the snowman is cut from some olive green paper. The top  layer of course is from white. After cutting the layers I sprayed the white layer with some general purpose adhesive and covered it with some Hero Arts Prisma fine glitter. I hope you can see the sparkle on him.

For my card I started with a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" white card base. I added a red mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and then my patterned paper mat cut at 3 7/8" X 5 1/8".   I rounded the two outside corners using my Corner Chomper and the 1/2" side.

I layered the red  mat and the patterned paper mat together and then wrapped some bakers twine around the card 3 times and then tied it in a knot in the center of the card.  I then added those two layers to my card base. My snowman is attached to the card with some foam tape.

My sentiment is embossed with some WOW! opaque white embossing powder. It says, Snowmen are built on flake at a time.

All in our Places - CardzTV Challenge

It  is time once again for a new 3D challenge over at CardzTV.  The challenge is to make Place Cards for your Thanksgiving dinner table.  Here is what I made.

The file is a print and cut file from the Silhouette store. I added the names to each card and had it print the names on the place cards when it print the cards out. I then let the Silhouette cut them out.  Next I stamped them each with So Thankful from the Thankful for You stamp set using Potters Clay Memento Ink.

 I cut the leaf from the 3D Floral Home Decor cartridge that came with my Cricut Explore. I spritzed the leaves with some orange glitter spray. Hopefully you can see it in this picture. 

Okay, now it is your turn. Show us your place cards by linking them to the CardzTV blog, giving you a chance to win a set of CardzTV stamps.
