Whimsical Holiday Cards

Greetings and welcome to the SEI Blog, it's Rhonda Van Ginkel here to share a few cards that I created featuring the Merry Mistletoe Card Kit which includes card bases, envelopes, die cuts, glitter elements, stickers, pearls and adhesive foam squares.

This kit has instructions and materials to complete 8 holiday greeting cards. I thought it would be fun to come up with a few other designs.

My first card is "Joy To The World" and has a pop up feature to it in the interior. I selected the red micro dot pop up card base, added the blue striped border to the edge finished with a touch of gold string that I had on my desk. The sentiment was adhered using the foam squares.

I started with the mistletoe and layered a bit of the floral trim which I cut into a banner at the end. The mistletoe is embellished with the gold glitter circle accents and a few of the pearls. I added some foam squared to the die cut bird and adhered.

For the interior, I added the gingerbread house to the pop up fold, then adhered the candy cane stickers on either side on top of the gold string. The glitter lights banner was added above the sentiment block.

My second card, "May your Holidays be Bright and Merry" is more clean and simple in design. I love that the kit elements give you so many fun options! For this card, I chose the light green card base and added the multi color fold accent. I used a gold accent strip and tied a bow using some of my gold string.

The snowman was attached using foam squares, then I tucked in the sentiment and added one small package using a foam square. The light banner was trimmed and layered to fit under the snowman and up to the trim. I accented the lights with a bit of glossy accents for shine.

I have the kit and will make some cards this week. I always try to make some cards that go beyond what's in the instructions - thanks for the ideas! Love what you've done!
