Share-a-Card - Day 3

So have we got you in the mood for making Christmas/Holiday cards yet?  

Wouldn't you like to take part in this fabulous project?  I'm sure that Share-a-card would love to have you participate and mail off your cards to them.


Today we have a few more of our Design Team members sharing their cards that they've created for the Share-a-Card Holiday Card Project.


Let's see what they've created!

Santa Joy Card
It's easy to create your own banner by using this simple method:
1- Decide how wide you want the top of your banner to be
2- Decide how tall you want your banner to be3- Using those two dimensions (mine were 1"W x 1.25"H) cut a square of that size4- Divide the width in half and make a mark in the middle (bottom of square)5-Using a straight edge, draw a line from each top side to the mark at the bottom; cut
This may seem a little elementary, but when you have a limited space (such as a card front) it helps to keep
the banner tops from being too wide :)  Tying a bow of baker's twine to one side gives the appearance that the banner
has actually been strung across the card.

Bell Card
Large die-cuts from any Imaginisce Collection are simply perfect for making cards!  I like to add that little 'extra', so I often
remove small accents from the Sticker Stackers and layer them with a larger element...perfect.  And when setting out to make a bundle of the same card, use your home computer and printer to easily create a row of sentiments.

Hi there!  I was so excited that the gals here at Imaginisce are partnering up with such a great organization!  I created two cards, one pretty clean and simple and another featuring our Snag 'em Stamps with our Christmas Cheer Collection.


I loved the elegant look of the embossed white against the red card stock, so I used it and a cute die and layered with a bit of foam tape.  I accented the "Ho Ho Ho" with a bit of bling with my iRock.  


For my next card, I used our Rudolph Snag 'Em stamp for inspiration, colored and cut him out and layered with a few other elements.  I punched a snowflake from my little folder tab die for some negative space interest and layered a white punched snowflake on top.  I really had fun creating these cards and hope that you'll join us in supporting Share - A - Card!
