Artisan Design Team Projects for December 2012 Part 1

Simple Christmas Card Makeover

Last year I had a card published in the PaperCrafts November-December 2011 issue, and I never got around to sharing it. I used the Stampin' Up set Tags til Christmas and the matching ornament punch, twine, gems and some non-SU patterned paper. It's a great card, and easily reproducable.



I also took the punched out patterned paper ornament, and made a gift tag with it.



I decided to remake the card and tag using only Stampin' Up supplies. I used the Delightful Decorations stamps set, the same ornament punch, more baker's twine and the Festival Of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack from this year's Holiday Mini catalog. Since it was so easy, I made a few more!



Here are closeups of each of the cards. The stamped ornament was punched out, and attached to the inside of the card in alignment with the punched ornament on the front layer. I also stamped a small circular element for the center of each ornament, popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals and added pearls. The bakers twine and patterned paper are the finishing touches.





Here are the tags that I created with the punched out ornaments. I added a strip of patterned paper to the top of the tags this time. Love that stack of patterned papers!
