CelebrateDecember2014Welcome to Celebrate December at Elle’s Studio! The month of December will be packed with holiday inspiration, projects, layouts, and gift ideas from many talented designers. So make sure to visit Elle’s Studio everyday for prizes, giveaways, and inspiration!

Today we have Patricia Roebuck and Daniela Dobson with us sharing beautiful holiday cards!

Patricia shares “There is something so special about giving a handmade card to friends, loved ones, and people in your community.  I gave each card it’s own little personality.
Patricia_CardThe Joy card, I altered the Good Cheer Evergreen Cut File to have three strands coming down, then added swirls of gold thread.  Using the evergreen stamp from the Merry and Bright Stamp Set, I curved it along my card, which made a great place to add “Merry Christmas” from the Good Cheer- Merry Christmas Stamp Set.   Patricia_Card-2I added a little more of a homemade look to the card with the patches of pattern paper along the edges.  And warmest wishes, greets you with the beautiful woodgrain, blues, and a snowman, dotted with snowflakes stamped in brown for a cozy feel.


Each card has a little extra glimmer added to it with Zig Wing of Stella Brush.”

Daniela also created three beautiful cards.  She shares, “For the Merry Christmas card, I wanted to use the two cut files from the Good Cheer Digital Cut File : the circle, and the tree.  The tree I cut two times, once in white cardstock and once in glitter cardstock.  I layered them using 3D foam adhesive.

The snowflakes from the November Digital Cut Files were perfect with these papers as I created the Warmest Wishes card.  I layered two of them, different sizes, with 3D foam adhesive.Warmest wishes by Daniela Dobson

As I was playing around and arranging elements for the Merry and Happy card, I saw a pocket for a gift card.  I trimmed one of the journaling tags, punched a circle at the top for the opening and sewed it onto a journaling tag.  It is perfect for a gift card or money.”

    Love some of those “extra little details” and definitely need to remember them. The gold swirl stitching on the first card is gorgeous – definitely need some gold thread.
    Also, love the pocket gift card. Cutting the circle out of the top just adds so much.
