Merry Cardinal Bingo Christmas Greeting Card

Standard

Oh my goodness Peeps we’re in the two week countdown to Christmas. How is that even possible? It seemed like it was never gonna get here and now it will be so soon.

I’m sharing a card today that is very nature inspired and loaded with holiday detail.

Merry Cardinal Bingo Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

The cardinal image was on a sticker sheet that was on my desk for so long and although I attempted to put it away several times….I just loved that little bird so much I had to create something with it.

I’ve paired it with Echo Park papers in very vintagy patterns.

A garden of flowers is required for nature themed projects. Gorgeous ribbon trims fill out this arrangement,

There’s a bit of faux snow along with pearly headed stick pins.

To give the chipboard a more organic feel I altered it with a mottled finish and added crackling and faux snow,

Believe Christmas Greeting Card

Standard

Hello everyone! I’ve been a busy little bee creating loads of Christmas projects and I’ve fallen into a Victorian groove lately. Or at least this is my version of it. I think it’s the scripty font on sentiment die cut and the vintagy Santa.

Believe Frosty Window Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

This combination of paper patterns reminds me of wall paper in a lovely old house in England. Not that I’ve ever been. Maybe someday. Travel goals.

The chipboard window is finished to look very antique and has faux snow in the panes to look like a frosty Christmas scene.

Holiday die cuts are layered here with spacers for depth and some have more of the “snow.”

A tiny number tag is clipped on to accent the window. All of the elements here are layered over a pretty die cut doily in crisp white.

Last but not least sparkly jingle bells, ribbon, and twine.

Silent Night Winter Birds Christmas Greeting Card with Video Tutorial

Standard

Hello everyone and welcome back! I’m sharing a lovely nature inspired Christmas greeting card today that I created using the Winter Birds Christmas Tags printable from our shop. I really do love birds in winter….well all the time really. But there’s just something so sweet about a fragile little creature out in the elements and still being lovely.

I chose the patterned papers to coordinate with the tag. The dark red paid balances the holiday foliage pattern.

 These super beautiful flowers are new to RRR and I can not even tell you how much I love them!!! I’ve made a small arrangement here with the blooms and altered chipboard and glittery accents.

The die cut wreath matches the one on the tag perfectly and creates a nice base for all the layers. Adding a bit of chunky twine and a simple tied bow of satin ribbon helps to balance the flowers and tucking in a doily helps to break up the busy patterns.

I am obsessed with actual vintage buttons and I always think they are well worth the work to scour antique shops to find them…like a vintagy treasure hunt.

All I needed to finish this card was a tiny sentiment and clip in holiday green.

We’ve prepared a process video for this card so you can see how it was created.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.
