Mini Pizza Boxes – Where’s The Pizza?

Gold! These Mini Pizza Boxes are GOLD! Can anything call out “Gift Box” more than gold? Oh, so they are really a little small for a pizza but think of all the other things you could put in these, including a gift card! I made some recently as door prizes for my monthly classes and a bunch for an upcoming Craft Fair.

Design Notes for Mini Pizza Boxes:

Well, it’s all pretty simple. I used the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set to stamp the sentiments. The doillie, bell, and sentiment are all attached to the terrific Wrapped in Plaid Designer Paper. I added that to the Cherry Cobbler Card Stock band and called it done!

The box is perfect for a small gift, jewelry or a key chain. It’s also perfect for a gift card. Because of that, I added at tag to the back of each box.

The Stockings Were Hung ….

Well, we are back, just in time to hang our stockings. Our trip was wonderful. We visited lots of Christmas markets in beautiful cities and towns along the Rhine River. Really, the trip of a lifetime. But, back to reality. Here’s a card I created a while back for November card class. Seems appropriate for Christmas Eve!

It was fun to color with our Stampin’ Blends.

Design Notes for Stocking Card:

Well, not that I think you are going to drop everything and make this card but you might want to think about it for next year. It was really pretty simple.

First, we stamped the stocking and sentiment on some Whisper White card stock, then colored the stocking with Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends and, my favorite, Wink of Stella.

The Real Red card stock was embossed with the Quilt Top embossing folder and adhered to the beautiful Gold Foil Edged card base.

I added to ribbons to the stocking after I cut it out. I added one of the Samta’s Workshop Enamel Shapes to the sentiment to finish it off.

Remember, if you want to think about making this for next year, many of these items will retire on January 2.

This and That:

Have a wonderful Christmas!

Thanks for stopping by.

Here’s a picture of us at one of the Christmas Markets in Cologne, Germany. I’m not very good at selfies!

 

 

 

 

I’m Not the Only One Who Makes Cards…

For me, one of the best parts of the holiday season is receiving cards from friends both far and near. And, as you might imagine, I have a number of friends who also make cards! I thought it would be fun to share some of the cards I’ve received. Keep this post bookmarked. You’ll want the inspiration next year when YOU are thinking about making cards!

 

 

When I return, I suspect I will have more cards to share!

Thanks for stopping by today.

My Last Christmas Card!

Joyous Noel Designer Paper, christmas, Timeless tidings stamp set, Stampin' Up!, Diannescards.comA few years ago, I decided to make a few different cards rather than just one card to send to our friends. Today I’m showing the last one I’m sending this year. The Joyous Noel Paper made it so special.

 

If you follow my blog faithfully, you will recognize the fold. It’s called accordion fold. I did a tutorial for this fold awhile back and even designed this card as part that.  Here’s a link to that tutorial Directions for Accordion Card.

I made more than one version of the card, by the way.
