Silhouette Sunday #20: Shaped Holiday Cards

shapedcard1Hello!! It’s Silhouette Sunday and I have been playing in my craft room for hours today and just enjoying the sound of my machine making magic while I assemble these beauties and select papers for other projects. In fact, I was having so much fun, that I am just now sitting down to share with you my project.shapedcard3With Thanksgiving complete, I thought I would start on my holiday cards and fun home decor projects for the winter months. Today’s cut file came from the Silhouette Design Store which if you haven’t heard, all designs are 50% off for a limited time. That’s a steal!! So I am loading up on files in my wishlist.shapedcard2I was attracted to this card because it is a shaped card. I like how it’s shape silhouette’s the scenery. I also like that it requires very few color papers so I could cut and quickly get to the assembling.

I decided I wanted something between the card base and the house so I hand-cut some silver paper to put behind each house.

shapedcard4The picture doesn’t do these cards justice. They are so cute. I hate to part with them!!shapedcard5

Now I must focus on my football game! Hope you had a great week and I will see you next Sunday to share another cute project.

Happy crafting!!


12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts: Day 5 – Snowman card

day5_Snowman1Good morning and welcome to day five of my 12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts! Today I bring you two snowman cards.  This is a new Stampendous stamp called Snowman Woodland. It comes with a scene and everything but I chose to crop the snowman to make him look like he is looking through a window.

day5_Snowman2Fort the first card I used Echo Park’s Tis the Season paper and the second one I used Crate Paper’s Peppermint.  I enjoyed using pink which is not the typical holiday color but after I put it together I really like it. I bought a bunch of glitter paper on sale weeks back at Michaels’ with my friend Joan and Cathy with the intention of using it with my Silhouette.  So I cut the window out of glitter paper on my Silhouette. I use my Silhouette for so much. It has truly been one of the best purchases I have made. Endless possibilities.

day5_Snowman3Here is a picture of them side by side. Don’t you love the pink? I love it? It just might not go out to anyone.  Oh did I just type that? I meant, careful consideration will be taken before mailing it off.

Props today…just my shelfs in my craft room and then the last two photos I put them on the carpet.

Tomorrow I am going to an all day crop with my girlfriends and going to meet my dear friend’s new baby Rosie. So I will have more crafting time which I feel I can use this time of year when the holiday starts to whip me around like a rag doll.

Have a blessed weekend and I will be back on Monday with day 6 of my  12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts.
