Gift Box of Handcrafted Greeting Cards

It’s never too early to start creating handcrafted projects to give as gifts for Christmas!  Create a gorgeous card gift box and fill it with a variety of greeting cards.  Anyone would be thrilled to receive this, don’t you think?


Here is the inside of the gift box; complete with a pocket where you can insert postage stamps.


For my project I used retired Designer Series Paper along with the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card Pack (now on sale in the Clearance Rack for only $4.00).  With this card pack, you will be able to create a lot of cards!

Below you can see a simple masculine card:

  •  trim a Memories & More card to 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • adhere it to a Night of Navy Card Base
  • add a few Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots
  • admire your card – it’s as easy as that!

To create my tags, I added images from the Animal Outing & Delightful Day stamp sets.

Stampin’ Up! put together a Delightful Day Tags Bundle.  Use the bundle yourself or purchase it as a gift.  Since the acrylic block, stamp set, mini pizza boxes, and the Tags & More Accessory Kit are all included in the bundle, this is perfect for beginning stampers!  It’s a GREAT Christmas gift idea

Merry Moose & Itty Bitty Christmas

It’s World Cardmaking Day!  I’ll be busy today hosting a Stamp Camp at my home.  Check my Deb’s Stampin’ Grounds Facebook Page later for photos of the event.

Have you started creating your Christmas cards yet?  I’ve made several with great products featured in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  Below you can see a card I created using the Merry Moose stamp set.  I didn’t use the coordinating Moose Punch on this card but it turned out pretty cute.

Cardstock – Real Red, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Ink – Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Real Red, Momento
Accessories – Classic Label Punch, Smokey Slate & Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends, Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive

There are some great sentiments in the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.  This set is a great addition for anyone who loves Christmas Stamp Sets – add it to your next order!
