Christmas in July Christmas Tree Truck

Today I’m celebrating “Christmas in July” for a second day with this Christmas tree truck card.  I love the red truck with its load of Christmas trees and how well it plays with the Carta Bella Santa’s Workshop paper in the background.  For this project I used the Truck, Birch Forest, Pine Tree Forest, Deckle Hills and the tiny wreath o the truck door was made using the Tiny Leaves.  Come see how I made this Christmas tree truck card.

The Birch Forest and Snow Layers Card Base

  • Cut the designer paper to fit an A2 sized card base and attach it using double stick tape.
  • Cut the Birch Forest and Deckle Hills using white cardstock.
  • Use thin strips of mounting tape on the back of the framed border of the Birch Forest and attach it to the card base.
  • Apply double stick tape to one of the snow layers and attach it to the front of the Birch Forest.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the second snow layer and attach it to the back snow layer.

Come see how I made this bright Christmas tree truck card.

The Truck and Wreath

  • Cut the truck parts using red, gray and black cardstock.
  • Attach the fenders to the truck using rolled strips of double stick tape.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the wheel sections together and attach them to truck base using glossy accents.
  • Attach all the trim pieces to the truck using double stick tape.
  • Cut tiny leaves using green cardstock.
  • Hand cut a tiny green circle to use as a wreath base and attach the leaves to the base using glossy accents.
  • Punch out several 1/16″ circles and attach them to the wreath using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the wreath and attach it to the truck door.
  • Tie a tiny red bow and attach it to the wreath using glue dots.

 

Come see how I made this fun Christmas tree truck card.

This Christmas tree truck scene is such a fun holiday card and is a perfect masculine card.  It is always a challenge to make cards that fit well for men.  I do think this card is perfect for anyone who loves vintage theme cards.  Check out the Pinterest red Christmas tree truck card link for more inspiration.  Thank you for coming by today and I hope you have a great day.

Christmas in July Poinsettia

Today I’m celebrating “Christmas in July” with my Christmas in July poinsettia card.  It’s always fun to create a few Christmas projects during the summer to rev up my holiday inspiration.  I wish I had a dollar for every die cut poinsettia card I have made over the years.  I could have added quite a bit of money to my retirement account.  LOL!   The holly and pine are the perfect foliage embellishments for this classic poinsettia card and I really like the addition of the embossed pattern on the background.  It adds interest to the card without distracting from the arrangement.  You can check out my Poinsettia Tutorial if you would like to see step by step photos of how I form and assemble my flower.  The tutorial uses different dies but the concept is the same.

Come see how I made this Christmas in July Poinsettia.

The Embossed Card Base and Frame

  • Cut the card base using white cardstock.
  • Emboss the white layer and attach it to the red card base. using double stick tape.
  • Cut the frame using red cardstock.
  • Apply thin strips to the back of the frame and attach it to the white embossed layer.

Come see how I made this pretty Christmas in July Poinsettia.

The Poinsettia

  • Cut the poinsettia sections using red cardstock.
  • Place all the sections face down on the molding pad and roll over the petals using the large tipped stylus.
  • Lay the sections face up on the molding pad and push down in the center to pull all the petals up.
  • Use glossy accents to attach all the sections together to create the flower.
  • Cut the tiny flower centers using yellow cardstock, form with the tiny tipped stylus and molding pad and attach to the center of the flower using glossy accents.
  • Apply a generous amount of glossy accents to the back of the poinsettia and attach to the card base.

The Holly and Pine

  • Cut the holly leaves using green cardstock and the berries using red cardstock.
  • Attach the red berries to the holly branches using glossy accents.
  • Place the holly leaves on the molding pad and gently create veins using the detail tool.
  • Cut the pine branches using green cardstock.
  • Tuck the holly and pine branches under the poinsettia and attach using glossy accents.
  • Finish by applying red stickles to the holly berries and sparkle to the flower centers using a shimmer pen.

Come see how I made this elegant Christmas in July poinsettia,

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my classic Christmas in July poinsettia card.  It really was a fast and easy card to make and yet it makes quite an elegant impression.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you’ll take some time out to create a few Christmas in July projects of your own.  Check out this Kittie Kraft Poinsettia link on Pinterest if you would like to see more of the poinsettia cards I have made over the years.

White Poinsettias and Holly

Good Sunday morning.  I have a white on white poinsettias and holly card to share with you today using the Rubbernecker Poinsettias #2, Holly and Borders #3.  There is something so interesting to me about all white images on a project.  The flowers and holly on this card take on the appearance of bisque.   As much as I love making an all white card it is always hard to get good pictures.  I like using white backgrounds for my photos but this time I used a pale pink paper in the background in hopes that the card would show up better.

Come see how I made this white on white poinsettias and holly card.

The Poinsettia

  • Cut the poinsettia and tiny flowers using white cardstock.
  • Lay the flower sections face down on the molding pad and push down and roll each petal using the large round stylus.
  • Lay the flower sections face up on the molding pad and push down in the center using a smaller tipped stylus to push all the petals up.
  • Attach the sections together using glossy accents offsetting each layer to form a natural looking flower.
  • Form the tiny flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Attach the tiny flowers in the poinsettia center using glossy accents.

 

Come see how I made this elegant white on white poinsettias and holly card.

The Holly

  • Cut sections of holly using white cardstock.
  • Gently form and shape the holly leaves with your fingers to add dimension.

The Poinsettia and Holly Arrangement

  • Cut the decorative border layer using white cardstock and attach to the card base using mounting tape.
  • Attach the poinsettia to the card base using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the holly sections under the poinsettia leaves and attach using glossy accents.

 

Come see how I made this lovely white on white poinsettias and holly card.

This white on white poinsettias and holly card will be the last Christmas project I make this year.  I always feel a little sad when we come to the close of the card making holiday season but it’s always fun to look forward to making pretty spring projects.  Thank so much for coming by and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with you family and friends.

Red Christmas Truck and Trees

Have I told you how much I love making the red Christmas truck and trees projects?  I’ve been getting ready for company and haven’t had much time to play with my dies so I thought I would pop in and share my favorite truck die ever.  Rubbernecker certainly hit it out of the park with this one.  It reminds me of the little truck in the Loads of Love set by Stampin’ Up! that was so popular years ago.  The parts and pieces come together so easily to create a wonderful dimensional truck.

Come see how I made this die cut christmas truck and trees card.

The Truck

  • Cut the Truck out using red cardstock.
  • Cut the wheels, truck rails and bumpers using black cardstock.
  • Assemble the wheel and hubcaps using glossy accents and attach them to the truck base using glossy accents.
  • Use a mini applicator to apply light touches of Fired Brick ink to the top portion of the fender section and around the door to add a touch of shading.
  • Apply rolled glue dots to several spots on the back of the fender and attach it to the truck base.
  • Attach the bumpers, headlights and truck rails to the truck using glossy accent
  • Attach the typed Truck Sales sign to the door using glossy accents.
  • Tuck several of the small trees to the back of the truck and attach using glue dots.
  • Attach the truck to the card base using mounting tape.

Scene and Embellishment Details

  • You can click on each individual picture to be taken to the original posts to see all the details about how I created the scenic background and embellishments.

 

Come see how I made this fun die cut truck and Christmas trees card.

I had so much fun making these red Christmas truck and trees cards.  I know I will have fun creating the truck and placing in different seasonal scenes.   I hope you are enjoying your holiday preparations.  I’m sure excited about having my nephew and his wife here for Christmas.

Mrs. and Mrs. Gingerbread

I have such a cute Mr. and Mrs. Gingerbread card  to share with you today.   I used 5178D Mr. and Mrs. Gingerbread and I paired these cuties using the Nested Rectangle Scallop w/ Holes and Rectangle Combo. There are several accessories in the set but I couldn’t resist adding a little gingham skirt on the Mrs. and pants for the Mr.  I thought they popped perfectly against the green gingham background.

Come and see how I made the Mr. and Mrs. Gingerbread.

Mr. and Mrs. Gingerbread

  • Cut the gingerbread people using Kraft cardstock.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink to the images using the ink pad direct to paper technique.
  • Cut the accessory pieces in red, white, black and green.
  • Attach the accessory pieces to the images using glossy accents.
  • Cut a portion of the gingerbread image using red cardstock, trim off the waist and legs to create the pants and attach to the body using glossy accents. Attach a thin gingham ribbon to the waist using double stick tape.
  • Attach a strip of double stick tape to the waist area of the girl image and begin attaching and ruffling the gingham ribbon all the way across to create the skirt. 
  • Cut a thin strip of white cardstock and attach it to the waist of the skirt with double stick tape.
  • Add holly leaves and berries to both images to finish.

Come and see how I made the sweet Mr. and Mrs. Gingerbread.

Complete the Card

  • Cut the scalloped layer using green checked paper.
  • Cut the white frame section and attach it to the checked layer using double stick tape.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the checked layer and attach it to the card base.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the gingerbread people and attach them to the card base.

Come and see how I made the cute Mr. and Mrs. Gingerbread.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my cute Mr. and Mrs. Gingerbread couple. I think they are precious.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you are having fun preparing for the holiday.
