Today I’d like to encourage you look at the SVGs in your stash to see if you can use them in different ways. I wanted to share how even one element from a collection could come in very handy in a pinch.
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make all of my Christmas cards from scratch this year so I added some simple embellishments to shop bought cards I already had to make them a bit more festive.
Here are the 5″ x 7″ cards I purchased from M&S, they are a satin mirror with embossed writing:
For each card I used one frame and a few red gems:
The holly frame is from the White Christmas SVG collection, you will find it on the ‘Robin Card Layer 2’ page. I could have cut my frames at the original size but I chose to resize them to 6.5″ wide so my cards have a border around the outside edge.
Here’s how my finished cards look:
Hopefully next year I can return to fully handmade creations for the people in my life and in the meantime, I hope this years recipients will be happy with their cards :)
Do you have any last minute cards to make or gifts to wrap?
If so, I have a 3 piece set of freebies for you today. The set includes a card, a matching envelope and a matching gift tag too!
I chose to use some non-traditional colours which I thought would work well with the geometric tree design, I hope you like it :)
If you make anything from this set we’d love to see it our facebook group :)
Good Evening all!
It’s freebie time again and I have to credit Patti, Lee and Rhonda from the Bird’s SVGs facebook group who were discussing the ‘box in a card’ idea and how well it would work as a place card. So, today I have made an SVG version so you can whip some up quickly with no measuring or scoring etc to worry about :)
Now I know it’s really close but I was thinking that as Thanksgiving is this week in the US, you may be able to make some of these in time for your Thanksgiving dinner:
As you can see, there is more than enough room for a truffle inside, here’s a Christmas version:
Simply change the papers to suit your event and add some fun embellishments, I hope you enjoy making yours :)
