Festive Greetings with Daniela

A handmade card certainly tops one purchased from a store, and design team member Daniela is here to share just how easily you can create a duo of cards using our newest products in the shop! Let’s take a look at her beautiful card designs!

I friends, it’s Daniela here and I’m happy to share my very last blog post for 2019 today! I can’t believe it’s the end of the year already. Time flies and I have made so many great memories this year. Of course, I want to give some love to all my dear friends who spent this year with me and who doesn’t love a handmade Christmas card? I love creating cards following a certain scheme. Still each one is unique due to the choice of colors and other little details. I created two cards using the December 2019 Cut Files and other Christmas-themed goodies from the shop!

Supplies: December 2019 Kit, December 2019 Cut Files, Very Merry Phrase Stickers, Warm and Cozy Phrase StickersGoals Phrase Stickers, Christmas Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers, Winter Wood VeneersDocument December 2019 Kit

I used a simple color scheme for my set of cards: teal, pink and red. Cut files offer so many possibilities. I cut the “fa la la” sentiment four times on each card and backed the back side of the white cardstock with different patterned papers using the Document December 2019 Paper. To add a special touch, I also added some vellum and ink splashes in either pink or teal.

If you know my work, you might have realized that I love layering and of course I used this technique on my cards as well. White cardstock, two layers of patterned paper plus white cardstock again: that’s the basic composition of each card. Tiny details like puffy stickers and phrase stickers function as eye catchers and the little wood veneer cups from the Winter Wood Veneers are cute embellishments for the coziest time of the year!

I like to putting embellishments on top of the cut file blanks or pieces, creating even more dimension. Elle’s phrase stickers are perfect for adding information, feelings or just some kind words. I’ve used them on so many projects during this year and I can’t wait to see the next ones to come.

I already know who I’m giving these cards to; both are for dear colleagues of mine and they will be accompanied by some handmade chocolates with Christmas toppings.
