Instructions

Watch the picture change before your eyes as you remove the tag/book mark

 .

  • Make a tall, rectangular side fold card blank. I make them to fit whatever envelope I have available, this one measures 9cm x 19.5cm

  • Cut a slightly smaller rectangle of Snowy Jo ĖĎJo to the worldí paper.  Iíve dry embossed mine with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.

  • Cut/punch a circle at the top (see picture) big enough so show the image youíll have peeping through.

  • Using a sewing machine, zig-zag stitch across the top of your paper rectangle then Zig-Zag stitch the paper rectangle onto your card base BUT DONíT STITCH THE TOP!

  • You now have a pocket to slot your tag/bookmark into.

  • Finish off the front by adding Snowy Jo rub-ons, stickers, starflowers and brads. I cut a large snowflake on my Silhouette digital craft cutter to frame the circular aperture.

  • Book Mark/Tag: Cut some snowy Jo Paper to fit the space you have in your card pocket then cut two more rectangles, decreasing the size each time. Ink the edges, tack together then sew together on your sewing machine. Add the Christmassy images from the snowy Jo rub on sheet.

  • Finish off with some eyelets and ribbons .

For that special finishing touch, stamp and colour a paper insert  for your card using the snowy Jo stamp and pencil crayons.

Top tip: Donít use DS tape or anything else too sticky to position your paper before using your sewing machine. Your needle will get gunged up and end up causing problems inside your sewing machine. I use a couple of dabs of glue stick in places that wonít be stitched.

Products used: Imaginisce Snowy Jo range of products

Instructions

You donít have to have a wealth of stamps and embellishments to make a beautiful Christmas card, sometimes some stylish paper is all you need!

  • Make a rectangular tent fold card blank. I make them to fit whatever envelope I have available, this one measures 7.5cm x 21cm

  • Fix a slightly smaller rectangle of Snowy Jo ĖJingle Baubles paper onto the card blank.  Iíve dry embossed mine with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.

  • Repeat the layering process to create the smaller, central rectangle and fix into position with foam pads.

  • Take some of your left over patterned paper and cut or punch out matching baubles to go over the baubles on your centre feature, attach with foam pads.

  • Finally add a rub on Snowy Jo sentiment.

Your card is complete! Simple, yet stylish.

 

Top tip: Use up any left-over scraps of patterned paper to line your envelope for an even classier look.

Fold-Out Card

Products used: Imaginisce Snowy Jo range of products

Instructions

Hereís a simple way to create a unique, pop out Christmas card Ė sure to stand out from the rest.

  • Cut a rectangle of card measuring 28.5cm X 15.5cm, I like to choose a colour that contrasts with my chosen patterned paper, in this case black.

  • Lay it in the landscape position then score and fold in half.

  • Take the image/sticker that you want to pop out Ė in this case itís a Snowy Jo Trim-a-Tree sticker. If youíre using a sticker or a paper image, mount it onto a scrap of card and cut it out first to strengthen it. Lay it centrally onto the fold on your card blank and make a mark on your card approximately 5mm from each side of your pop out picture.

  • Fold and score the card twice where you marked it (parallel to the centre fold), this time folding in the opposite direction to your centre fold. You should now have a mountain fold in the centre of your card.

  • Lay your card flat, lay your pop out image in your desired position on the mountain fold and draw around one side. Carefully cut along this line with a craft knife so that when you push up your mountain fold, one side of the image shape pops out. Now fix your image to this pop out section.

Now you just need to decorate your card however you wish. All of my embellishments are from the Snowy Jo Collection (with the addition of a few brads and scraps off ribbon)

Easy Gift Box

Designed by Louise Brigden

Products used: Imaginisce Snowy Jo range of products

Instructions

For this cute little gift box you can either buy a ready-made box to decorate, make your own using a template of your choice or do what Iíve done and use a box template on your Silhouette digital craft cutter to cut out the box shape, and simply stick it  together.

First make/decorate your box with Snowy Jo Tinsel to The Top paper.

Wrap a strip of adhesive paper ribbon around the box.

Then just add your choice of snowy Jo embellishments! Iíve used Build-a-Jo stickers, Snow Flowers fixed into position with Gumdrop Glitter brads and a Tinsel Tag 3D sticker.

I told you it was easy!
