Glittersilk “JOY”Card

When I saw the gorgeous leaf vine May Arts ribbon, I knew I wanted to do something elegant with it. I paired it up with some Core’dinations Glittersilk Cardstock- Glittersilk is my go-to for “special” projects. I love glitter! Especially when it doesn’t flake off and cover everything that it shouldn’t!

Joy-card-Coredinations“JOY” Card Supplies:

1

Step 1: Trim and fold Core’dination Glittersilk Cardstock into an A2 sized card base.

Step 2: Trim May Arts Burlap Stripe ribbon to fit the front of the card. Cut bottom end into a pennant shape. Adhere to card base.

Step 3: Loop May Arts Leaves Ribbon into a wreath. Adhere to card over the top of the burlap ribbon. Arrange leaves as desired using small glue dots.

Step 4: Tie a bow from May Arts checkered ribbon, and adhere to top of wreath using a glue dot.

Step 5: Computer generate “JOY” using red printer ink on Snowflake cardstock. Cut into tag shape and adhere to card.

3I think the glittersilk cardstock paired perfectly with the dainty leaves, and the texture of the burlap ribbon.

A beautiful holiday card that will bring “JOY” to someone- (if I decide to let it go, and give it away!)

Step 3: Using your Sand It Gadget, sand your panels that form the top of the ornament to show off that lovely embossing.  Don’t forget yo use your Dust Buddy to clean-up the dust!

Step 4: Thread through the hole on top, the ribbon or twine you want to use to hang the ornament.  Hint:  If you do not want to see the knot, pass the ribbon or twine from the top down, tie your knot and then the know will be hidden in the top of the ornament.   Once that is complete you can tie closed both the top and bottom of the largest piece of the ornament.  It is good to have an extra hand with this part.  Once you are finished with and the ribbon and twine you can start decorating!

Mary Pat here with you today and I was really excited to find out that Core’dinations was teaming up with May Arts!  What a great combo! I always like to bring a little hostess gift when visiting friends and family during the holidays.  Just a little something to say “Thanks”.  So I made a little gift bag and tag using the yummy Core’dinations and the beautiful May Arts Ribbon.

novmay2For my project I used the Tim Holtz Shattered Collection to make all my pieces and layers.  This collection to me has such rich colors that just scream fall to me.  I used my Silhouette to create the fall leaves and then I added some stamped images to add some fun embellishments.  Finally to add the finishing touch I added the beautiful May Arts ribbon and cord.

Turkey Treat Holders

As the holidays approach, it’s fun to start planning and creating those special little things that make a hand-crafted celebration.  In my family, we usually have small favors for each of our guests.  I’m always hunting for ideas that are cute, but aren’t too expensive or too time consuming to make. Since Thanksgiving is just around the corner, now is the perfect time to get a jump start with these adorable Turkey Treat Holders.  Won’t these look fabulous on the dinner table?

003Turkey Treat Holder Supplies:

Step 1.  Die cut feathers.  With this die, I was easily able to cut 4 layers of paper at a time.

Step 2.   Add ribbon around the lip of the pot.

Step 3.  Glue the feathers.

Step 4.  Hand draw turkey body.  Cut out.

Step 5.  Punch a pear shape to create the turkey’s wattle.  Snip a triangle for the beak. Use buttons and brads to create the eyes.  Attach to flower pot.

Step 6.  Wrap treats in tulle.  Tie with burlap cord and place in flower pot.

001Hope this helps make your holidays even happier!
