Christmas – Mix & Match

I love when fall arrives and it’s almost Christmas. (Yes, it’s still September but it’s my favorite season and I’ve been secretly thinking of the holidays ever since fall arrived.)

I decided to create a simple and sweet scene for a Christmas card. It actually mixes two different companies together, Lawn Fawn and Penny Black, but it looks like it matches perfectly together!

Birthday Cards – Candy Dispensing Card

I had spotted this design on Instagram. It was a card that actually worked to dispense candy! I knew I had to make one for myself. It is such a great idea to give to a kid, or just to someone who enjoys candy!

I checked out her youtube video (Tutorial), tweaked a few things, and created my version of it. I hate when dimensional cards leave you with the foam tape peeking out on the sides so the simple solution was to use washi tape to hide it. The added touch really helps finish the card. Pretty fun…

It works the same way as the tutorial. The only swaps I made was using craft foam instead of foam tape, and lining the edge of the card with washi instead of leaving it bare. It’s so exciting to see it work out successfully.
