WHITE CHRISTMAS 2018 - DAY 17 - Jewelry Ornament Christmas Card

Welcome back to my WHITE CHRISTMAS 2018 tutorial series! Today it's the time for the project #17. 

I am going to create a card featuring a large gorgeous Christmas ornament (created with Birch Press Design dies!) and I am going to heavily embellish it with jewels and pearls.

 I used Silver jewels that are almost the same color as the background I was attaching them to. This way the jewels add a lot of extra texture and sparkle but are not overpowering the entire design.

Watch the video down below this post for more information on how to put this card together!

Have a great week!

WHITE CHRISTMAS 2018 - DAY 15 - Tiny Snowglobe Shaker Tags

Hi, hope you have had a great weekend! Today is the DAY 15 of White Christmas Holiday tutorial series. This time I have made a set of mini shaker tags. 

These tag might look "normal" in the picture but they are in fact just 2 inches tall. You will see in the video (scroll down to watch!) that the sequins and glitter move inside easily just as inside real snow globes.

By the way, according to the weather forecast there will be first snow in my area tomorrow! Hope they are not mistaken :) 

See you again on Wednesday! Have a wonderful week!

WHITE CHRISTMAS 2018 - DAY 14 - Winter House Backlit Card

Welcome to the DAY 14 of WHITE CHRISTMAS 2018 tutorial series!

As you probably know my Halloween supplies arrived to me too late this year (after Halloween actually) but I like them so much I started looking for the ways to use them for my Christmas projects.

The stamp set I used this time is from Haunted House set. I love houses so very much and I think they can work for absolutely any season. I just had to mask off some Halloween-ish details and voila! A winter house!

As the front panel of the card is made of vellum you can place a tea light behind to create a magical glow around the house and turn the card into a mantelpiece decoration!

Scroll down for some close up photos and a video tutorial!

Have a fantastic weekend!

Hi crafty friends! It is the DAY 12 of my WHITE CHRISTMAS 2018 tutorial series and this project seems to be my personal favorite so far :)

WHITE CHRISTMAS 2018 - DAY 9 - Gnome Santa Tags

Hi, hope you have had a great weekend! Welcome back to the WHITE CHRISTMAS 2018 tutorial series!

Today's project has been inspired by one of commenters on my YouTube channel who asked me to create a no-snow Holiday project (because there is no snow in Australia where she's from). Also, the candy corn dies that I like so much arrived a bit late and I couldn't use them for Halloween. 

As a result, today I am using some dies in an unusual new way to create a no-snow Christmas tags! You can find a video tutorial and a supply list at the end of this post.
