Wow, are you going to love this new idea from Laurie at Doodle Pantry where the new release has just gone live for August. She has created a PDF file which includes instructions,pre designed 4" square card panels, images, sentiments, two pages that have ready to print, cut and fold cards along with 6 tags.
Blessed Christmas has always been a favorite of mine and I was so happy to showcase it for you today.
These first two pictures show the 8 cards that I created. I printed the set out twice, on both white and ivory card stock. I created 4 of them adding just the images and sentiments and a few die cuts which if you are in a hurry to get lots finished this will sure speed things up.
My second set, I used various things in my stash to embellish them a bit more, but still keeping them fast to create and easy to mail.
This picture shows all of the elements you will be able to cut, die cut and punch from the pages you print out from your kit. There will be 4 square card fronts, 9 images, 8 sentiments and two strips of design paper....now the creativity is up to you. I used Spellbinder dies, Stampin' Up and Clear Dollar Stamps dies to cut a variety of shapes but you can do this however you want. Make them all the same or all different, that is all up to you.
These are the 4 pre designed cards that I cut and folded to create 4.25 square cards along with 6 tags...aren't they just the cutest?
This picture shows you the two sets I used to create my 8 cards, using both the white and ivory card stock.
I wanted to show you some closer shots of some of the cards. The top ones just use a circle die and scallop punch with a gem and a layer of the Labels 4 dies from Spellbinders.
I used the sentiment as my focal image for the card on the left and added the strip of design paper behind the card front image. For the other,turning my sentiment on the side and adding a couple of pearls gives this a completely different look.
I love the way Laurie has designed these to give us the options of being as creative with them as we desire and can you believe that all of this is only $3.00 a set. So hop on over and let us help you out with your Christmas cards this season. This is only one of the PDF file sets being released this month, so I know you will find one that suits your tastes. We also have some gorgeous new digital sets being released today as well as some new colored versions of our older released sets. What a great time to shop.
Be sure and look for all of the specials at the shop as well. I will try and tell you about those in the next few days. I have been away and will be on my way home when this posts and as such are unable to link you directly to the specials page, but it is easy to find at Doodle Pantry.
I also want to remind you that our DPDC26 challenge at the Doodle Pantry Blog will start today at Noon. We just ask that you use a Doodle Pantry image to enter. Be sure and stop by for this month's free image and all the details.
Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you will stop by the store and see what the rest of the Creative Team has been up to.
