Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! I’m celebrating day 8 of our 12 Days of Christmas in July series on my channel and today is the day I get to share the project for Gypsy Soul! I really love how this card turned out. Maybe my favorite for this whole month of Christmas in July!Shabby Chic Pink Church Christma Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

 

This dreamy color combination works so well with the gently altered chipboard.

I used the House Jewelry and finished it to resemble a sweet little country church.

The Doodle Set makes for fine floral flourishes when layered with pretty flowers and pine cones.

These chippies were finished simply with flat white acrylic paint then topped off with a bit of Stickles to add sparkle.

The leaf Medallion works in place of a doily and frames the arrangement with extra dimension.

I’ve mixed in a few die cut paper pieces with the chippies to fill in this corner. A little faux snow is the perfect finishing detail.

To coordinate with the beautiful blue ribbon I’ve added a silver finish to this chipboard frame.

Adding a double layer of matting helps to keep the patterns separate and brighten up the dark papers.

A few smaller flowers,  metal charms, and pearly embellishments are the perfect details to finish this card.

Standard

Are you ready for day 4 of our 12 Days of Christmas series on YouTube? I know I am having so much fun bringing you a tutorial everyday! As promised in the previous video I’m sharing my process of making an Envelope flip book using Graphic 45’s  Twas the Night Before Christmas. It’s not a “new” collection but it is a classic and I still love it as much as the day I got it!

Jolly St Nick Christmas Envelope Mini Flip Book Polly's Paper Studio 01

I used the 8 x 8 paper pad which is really the perfect size for smaller mini albums as well as the chipboard and tags and pockets to create this book. Of course I’ve added some flowers and ribbon trim and sequins.

Pockets and tags are a must for minis. And adding tip ins really maximizes the real estate for pictures.

The die cut pieces and post cards are really a great place to add journaling.

Okay friends and neighbors we’re on day 3 of the 12 Days of Christmas in July YouTube videos!  This is a personal best record for me lol. Today’s project is a great way to take boxed cards up a notch.

Merry Christmas Fur Friend Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

I created this with the image from a boxed card and added all the layers to make it super festive!

Merry Christmas Fur Friend Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

Of course for a handmade card you’ll want to embellish with ribbons and trims and jingle bells!

Spacers between the layers adds depth and the white die cut doily brightens it up and separates the busy patterns. Last but not least is little sparkly stars to coordinate with the bells.
