Christmas Cards with Eileen Hull Designs by Sizzix


Do you have your Christmas cards made? Me? ha ha ha, no I don't.  My cards usually end up being Happy New Year's 'cause I just can't seem to get it together!

But today I am sharing two cards I made using some of Eileen Hull Designs dies.
This is a simple layered card using Eileens's Mitten and Credit Card Sleeve & Tags dies.  Gift cards are always appreciated and this year shopping with the crowds is not an option for me.  So I'll be gifting some cards but I like to put those gift cards  in either a fun box or card.  The gift card is inserted in the glove on this card.  Then, there's plenty of room inside to write a personal message.

There are 4 layers: 1) the red card base, 2) ivory cardstock, 3) green striped and 4) Santa's Wishlist.  Those layers make a nice presentation for the pretty glove.


I die-cut a mitten and then used the slot die from the Credit Card Framelits Set and cut a scalloped slot in the glove where a gift card can be inserted.  I decorated the glove with paper ric rac, also cut with the mitten die.  Then I tied a bow and glued at the wrist of the glove.





This is one of my favorite style cards, a step card.  They are fun to make but cutting the card base is a little bit of a challenge.  Here's a template you can use to make a step card.  I used a couple of layers in the center and a cut-apart as a backdrop for Eileen's cheery snowman.

You can't see it much in this photo, but I used Stickles to highlight the berries, pinecones and branches.  It gives the card a really pretty sparkle.  I also popped up the snowman to add some depth to the card.



I cut the snowman pieces and assembled.  I trimmed his stocking cap with Stamperia Arctic Snow. 




Here's a side view of the card so you can see the step.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Be sure to go over to Eileen's blog to see what else the design team has been doing.

  2. So many cool techniques her Maggi! I love how you used the Credit Card scalloped element to cut a slot for the gift card- genius! And the layering just adds richness to the overall effect. The step card is amazing too.
