Making the most out of my scrapbook paper kits is always my goal. For today’s project, I’ll be showing you four types of cards made from Carta Bella’s adorable Santa’s Workshop collection kit with a little help from the 6×6 paper pad.
DIY Die Cuts:
Most of the scrapbook kits have larger designs on the various papers that are easy to cut out. For this card, I simply used my Cutter Bee scissors to trim out the Santa from the cut apart papers included in the kit. I added in a sentiment I cut from the smaller scale 6×6 pad with some of the buffalo check paper for the background. Everything was adhered to a white notecard with foam tape. That Santa is so cute and jolly!
Using some papers from the 6×6 pad, I created a simple shaker card with one of the stickers from the kit’s sticker sheet as an embellishment.
For the shaker window, I used a circle die to cut a hole, then adhered some clear cardstock over it from the back. I stretched some Scotch Foam tape all around the edge of the circle so the sequins would not fall out.
I adhered the tree paper to a white notecard and piled some clear sequins on top. You could use glitter, beads, or any type of shaker material you have on hand. The last step is to just place the window over the top and push down so the foam tape adheres.
Clean and Simple:
I simply blended some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink over the top of a white note card and placed a sticker from the kit over the top with foam tape. For more embellishment, I scattered a few of the snowflake stickers too. I used a sentiment stamp from Avery Elle’s Merry Merry stamp set for both the outside and inside. The red ink on the inside is Memento Luxe Pigment ink in Love Letter.
Create a Scene:
For this card, I trimmed out part of a little snow scene from one of the papers in the kit that had different strips of scenes. I adhered this to the bottom half of a white notecard I created. Over the top, I layered more stickers from the kit with foam tape.
The bright colors of this kit really make these cards stand out. You need only a few pieces and you can create so many cards. I hope I’ve inspired you to take your scrapbook paper out and use it for more than just scrapbooking. Thanks for joining me today!
