3x3 Cards and Box Set

This was a really fun set of 3x3 cards and matching box that I created featuring the Snow Festival DSP, found in the Holiday Mini Catty. There was actually very little stamping involved and I had lots of fun embellishing each card with just a little "something extra" to really give it that wow. I'm going to do a few of these sets for an upcoming craft fair.

Want to make this? I can mail you the Pre-Cut kit with directions and envelopes for just $10. Email me at for more info.

This card was SO easy and fun to make! I had a blast using the Scentsational Seasons Stamps and Framelits Bundle from the Holiday Mini Catalog. I used Whisper White and Cherry Cobbler Cardstock, along with some of the adorable Snow Festival DSP. The sentiment is stamped with the Greetings of the Season stamp set. Isn't the Cherry Cobbler and Gumball Green Sweater trim just too cute? I embellished the Christmas tree with some small pearls, Silver Glimmer paper, and Rhinestones, adding some pearls to my gingerbread man as well. The scoring was done with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Diagonal Plate. Quick, easy and "Snow" much fun to make!

I had lots of fun making these clean and simple Christmas Cards. I absolutely LOVE the Stampin Up Paper Piercing Templates, and for only $7.95, they are a GREAT deal! This card is done in Real Red Cardstock and ink, with Polka Dot Party DSP. The sentiment is from a single stamp called, "Christmas in the Heart" and is $8.95 in our Holiday Mini-Catalog. I cut the shape out using the Framelits-Labels Collection with my Big Shot DieCutting Machine.   The ribbon is a retired Grosgrain, but I think the Real Red Seam Binding Ribbon would be a great choice here as well.

The card below is done in Gumball Green Cardstock and ink, using the same Sentiment and Framelits as the above card.  The DSP is from Snow Festival in the Holiday Mini Catty.  The ribbon is the Stitched Satin Ribbon, which we carry in all 5 of the new In Colors (Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple and Midnight Muse).
