Card from Santa

1 Comment

Santa paper pieced

A lady contacted me and stated she was going to buy her kids seasons passes to Wonders of Wildlife (Bass Pro) but didn’t have any cool way to present it to the kids. She said she was disappointed that Bass Pro didn’t have any cards to do this. So she requested one from me! She wanted it to be from Santa to the kids. I came up with the ideal of Santa checking his list and finding out the family was nice so he would give them a season pass. So I sent the ideal to my girlfriend who is amazing with coming up with sentiments.

Santa Bass Pro - inside
On the inside I printed off a photo of W.O.W. and made it a pocket so the season pass would go on a tag that could be pulled out.

So I was telling my massage therapist about this card and he said oh make me one I want to take it my friend that works at Bass Pro. So who know maybe Bass Pro will “copy” my ideal!

While I was looking for images on the internet I came across this digital stamp/svg file at Scarlett Rose Designs and thought it would be perfect for the envelope to put the card in. I printed their names on the front.

Lake Cabin Card

Lake Cabin

I have a customer that lives in a lake house so I made this card for her to give her husband for Father’s Day. I used the Cabin SVG from Miss Kate Cuttables.

SUPPLIES:
SVG File: Miss Kate Cuttable SVG File (cabin)
Cardstock: Bazzill (Ivy, parakeet, Java, sea water, Bazzill Blue,smoky)
Accents/Tools: Gina Marie Designs Dies (stitched sky die set), Joy Crafts Die (clouds), xyron x, Xyron 510, EK Success pop dots

Bear - fishing scene

I made a lake cabin card scene (see above) and had extra supplies out on the desk from it. I then got an order from a lady that wanted her granddaughter (1 yoa) to give her uncle (17 yoa) a card for “uncle’s day”. He is a big fishermen and I know will teach her how to fish. So I had a bear left over and decided to pair him up with the lake scene. I thought it worked for a kid to give to an uncle. Stamping is not my thing but since I bought the set I thought I would use. The lady and her son “uncle” loved it!

A lady at work has an elderly friend that loves penguins. So this is the 2nd year she has requested a box card set to give her friend as a gift (then her friend will have 5 cards to hand out next year). I make the cards flat so it is easier for her mail. I used Tuesday Morning Sketches #328 as my inspiration. She gets 5 cards and 5 envelopes in the handmade box (see next photo).

CHALLENGES:

Inside: It’s All Organic!!!

As I was searching for sayings and inspiration on Halloween I came across this saying and cracked up. This is sooo my best friend!! She is into oils, home remedies, etc. (and I am sooo NOT) so I knew I had to send this to her!!! She isn’t into Halloween but I think it will make her laugh. I love Halloween….what is better than acting like a kid, being silly, dressing up and eating candy!! I don’t do the dark Halloween….I like the fun cutesy side of Halloween. That’s why I kept this card fun, bright, cutesy Halloween even though there is a cauldron. And she will be shocked there is a bow as I don’t do many bows. But when I saw this sketch with the little tag I knew it was perfect (I was struggling with how to put that saying on the front and this sketch made it so easy!)  I used a die cut from Miss Kate Cuttables (I took out one of the green layers and bubbles). I used MOJO Monday Sketch #468 for my inspiration.

CHALLENGES:
1) October Inspirational Card Challenge – Photo inspiration category – use the photo to inspire…went with Halloween, witch theme.

Digital SVG File (it also comes as JPG) – Witch Cauldron @ Miss Kate Cuttables
