Frost Winter Christmas Greeting Card with Video

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Dropping in to share a card I created with the Frosty Winter Christmas printable.

Frosty Winter Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

I think that image looks so sweet and pairs well with the shabby chic style of this card.

Frosty Winter Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

I’ve layered a busy floral pattern with a more neutral non contrasting one so I could add the image and not create a jumbled look.

Frosty Winter Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

These flowers are all handmade by me to coordinate with the pink theme. There’s a variety of leaf and branch die cuts to fill in the arrangement and some glitter stars to add sparkle.

Frosty Winter Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

More pink? Don’t mind if I do. This time its pink and plaid to create a poofy bow topped with jingle bells and a tiny skate charm.

The doily die cut from crisp white cardstock is the perfect way to break up the busy patterns!

Nature Sketchbook Greeting Card

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Just dropping in to share a very nature inspired greeting card.  We’ve had nothing but dreary rainy weather here in mid-Michigan and I just wanted to create something that reminded me of beautiful warm summer days.

Sketchbook Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

I’m using the Nature Sketchbook collection from Graphic 45. I just love the botanical and nature images.

Sketchbook Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

Because it’s quite a dark color scheme I opted to add a 2 layer border so I could work in the black and green.

Sketchbook Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

These pretty coordinating flowers are large and fill the corner of the card with lovey detail.

Sketchbook Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

I’ve tucked in some spiraly bits to add texture.

Sketchbook Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

A clip and a second flower arrangement for this corned.  These layers have spaces between so it helps the patterns to not look so busy.

Sketchbook Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 06

Some silvery keys here to bring a bit of shine and refinement.

Ice Skate Christmas Greeting Card

Standard

Hello there friends and GSL peeps! Ginny here dropping in to share a very festive and fun Christmas greeting card with some of my favorite holiday chippies.

Ice Skate Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01
Oh how I love plaids for Christmas! I’ve created a dimensional frame for my altered chipboard using an oval die to cut out the center to the paper then added it with spacers for just the perfect showcase for the ice skate.

 

Ice Skate Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02
This hand made by me poinsettia looks picture perfect when layered with the chipboard snowflakes, die cut leaves, and loopy bows of burlap string.

 

Ice Skate Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03
Petal corners brightens up the dark plaid and add extra texture. Last but not least is a poofy bow topped with jingle bells as a metal skate charm.

 

I wiped down the ice skate chippie to prepare it for finishing then gave the top section a coat of flat white acrylic paint. After drying I used some Distress ink in a Pumice Stone shade to distress the areas on the skate where it would be shadowed from the contours of the foot and ankle. Next I added some antique silver metallic paint to cover the blade. Using a Pitt Pen I added black to the heel and shoe base. Using a thick stick pen I added holes then strung metallic thread through for lacing.

Please enjoy this video tutorial on how I created the card…

Baby it’s Cold Outside Greeting Cards

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share my first project with the new Ribbon Club Holiday Shimmer Assortment …

Isn’t it just dreamy??????? I think this might turn out to be my favorite assortment for the holidays!

I pulled out the silver for my first project and was having so much fun it turned into two. Isn’t the the way it always goes???

Baby it's Cold Outside Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

I think I will always love blue and silver for Christmas.

Baby it's Cold Outside Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

I’ve added some pretty coordinating flowers.

Baby it's Cold Outside Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

Layered die cuts create a nice texture and provide lots of detail.

Baby it's Cold Outside Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

I couldn’t resist adding a silver ice skate charm.

Baby it's Cold Outside Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

Speaking of silver I’ve tucked in a silvery star to the floral arrangement for a little extra sparkle.

Christmas Reindeer Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

This card is similar but has a different focal image. Notice the faux snow detail on the top and the circle die cut?

Christmas Reindeer Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

There’s a few berry stems and metal flourishes to fill in the flowers. And that silver ribbon matches perfectly!

Christmas Reindeer Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

The focal image is actually a layered holiday sticker in matching plaid.

Christmas Reindeer Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

This card also has a charm…this time a reindeer. A bit of loopy twine bow softens the arrangement.

Christmas Reindeer Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

While I was working with the wintry color scheme I decided now is the right time for silver cardstock between the paper layers. So festive!
