Last Minute Gift Envelopes + Video

Hello Stack-a-holics! It's Rachel joining you today and I am SO excited for today's post! Why? Because Christmas is exactly ONE WEEK away! Don't pull your hair out just yet... you still have time to put together some great last minute gifts that your friends and family will really appreciate.

Today we're making quick cash envelopes. These can be used for so much more than just Christmas. I'm thinking love notes for Valentine's Day, IOU's for Mother's Day, a dollar from the tooth fairy?! Just pull out your favorite DCWV stack and get to it!



Supplies:
DCWV Candy Cane Lane stack (available at Michael's)
DCWV Christmas Creations stack (available at Michael's)
Score Board
Paper Trimmer
Spellbinders Circle Die
Standard Hole Punch
Corner Rounder
Liquid Glue
White Gel Pen
May Arts Ribbon

The making of this envelope starts with the basic shape of a #8 shipping tag. I'm sure you'll have plenty of ideas for how you can use these envelopes after watching the how-to video I put together for you all!



If you're having trouble viewing the video within this blog post, please CLICK HERE to watch it directly! Thanks!


I hope this project has helped to ease your holiday stress just a little bit! Have a wonderful holiday and Merry Christmas!

Joyful Tidings

Hello, Yolie here sharing a set of Christmas cards made with DCWV Winter in the Woods.


I used the Kraft paper form DCWV The Winter in the Woods 12"x 12" for the card base for all seven cards.  I cut 5 strips of  the red embossed paper {2.5"x4.25"} from the Christmas & Winter Cardstock and used the  Spellbinders Decorative Label die to cut the glitter paper, also from the same stack.
I stamped the sentiment "Joyful Tidings" on tags cut with Spellbinders Grommet Tag die.  The Kraft doily, glitter snowflake, brads, mini clothespins and gold cording are from Christmas stash.

 


I needed two cards with a bit more of a masculine look.  The wood pattern paper and chevron print are from the 6" x 6" DCWV Winter in the Woods stack.  I used two of the tags from the DCWV Winter Tag Stack and I added the Christmas tree wood veneer and a glitter enamel dots as the finishing touches.


Here is the inside of the card:
I attached a gift card holder on all of the cards.  I used the chevron glitter paper from the 12" x 12" DCWV Winter in the Woods.  The pocket die was a recent purchase that I just know will be put to good use. The inside sentiment was a free printable.


Since these will be hand delivered, I used glassine bags instead of envelopes.  I cut the tags from the 6" x 6" DCWV Winter in the Woods, punched, added a gold eyelet and gold cording.  I attached the white glitter snowflakes, mini clothespins to lightly decorate the bags.

I hope the cards I shared with you today inspire you.  Thank you for stopping by today.

Christmas Card & Tutorial


Hi there, Karen here sharing a Christmas card that I created using a DCWV card. I love using DCWV’s pre-scored cards. They are easily accessible and fun to create with.  I chose a card from the Burlap A2 Box of Cards. The burlap is printed and perfect for casual and elegant cards. The box of cards includes 24 cards and envelopes with 4 different prints, giving you many options with your card making.

I enjoyed playing with the dotted pattern throughout my design, from the beaded pearls to the beaded ribbon and pearl pins. The inspiration was truly the polka dot card base. I included a tutorial below.

Supplies:

DCWV: Burlap A2 Card

Acrylic Frame

Beaded Ribbon

Pearl Clusters

Flowers

Cheesecloth

Pearl Pins

Sentiment

Hot Glue

Xyron 3/8 Adhesive Dots

 
Instructions:

 Step 1: Trim the printed side of the A2 Card Base ½ and inch.

 
Step 2: Open the inside of the card and apply adhesive dots to the trimmed side. Adhere beaded ribbon to the inside of the card.
 
Step 3: Using a glue gun, adhere acrylic frame and pearl clusters to burlap card.

 
Step 4: Adhere flowers and cheesecloth to the card.

Step 5: Add sentiment and pearl pins. Continue embellishing as desired.

Thanks so much for visiting today!
