The ScrappyDew- Dew-ettes are fantastic designers and this is the page where they can showcase their hard work
December in Costa Rica is beautiful.
The weather is dry and warm, ideal for hit the beach.
Today, for example, the temperature reaches 88°F at the beach.
This is Playa Hermosa, one of my favorite beaches in the Costa Rican Pacific.
For that reason and for my Christmas greeting, I have to use the "Beach Santa" cutting file from ScrappyDew Creations.
This Santa surfer rocks!!!!
Greetings from this sunny land to you all.
You can find this lovely cutting file at
Today for my Gift Card Holder project I'm using ScrappyDew Creations Free Poinsettia pattern file.
You can download it Here for a limited time!
I also used Brenda's Gift Card tutorial. With so many cards to make I needed something easy and quick! This project was perfect. Once my poinsettia was cut, I took my stylus and distressed the paper a bit. Because the paper has a white core I couldn't distress it too much. I added some yellow Stickles to the center. The front mat was embossed using a Sizzix embossing folder - Hello Kitty I believe. I don't have the packaging any longer.
This is the inside of my card. the stamp is from Inkadinkado - Holiday Filigree. I love that set! It was stamped using Martha Stewart Ink. The Cardinal is a Die-Cut from K&CoMPANY - Elizabeth Brownd. The ribbon was purchased from Big Lots over a year ago. The gift card gets tucked in between the cardinal and the stamped sentiment.
A closer look at the poinsettia. I used Scotch 3D Foam to give it some dimension.
I hope you enjoyed my quick project.
I think I have finally decided on a design from ScrappyDew to use for my Christmas Cards. (gosh, maybe i won't be sending them in january) The file can be found at www.scrappydew.com in the vault members area. Now of course I had to spruce it up a bit. For the ends of the scarf, I used some embroidery floss, and for the eyes I used some black sticky gems. Since it is out, I used some wide Christmas wrapping ribbon down the side of the card. All the papers are scraps and do you see it? The dreaded glitter paper is the snowman. (hint: using my KNK Zing force is 135, speed 9 and 2 passes) So here is what I have came up with.
I think that it's pretty cute. I will make 10 cards with envelopes with this pattern. Then there are a couple more snowmen patterns that I will use (10 in each set) to complete the total of 40 cards (a few extra to start me off for my bazaar next year). When making batches of cards, I cut all my pieces and create an assembly line and put them together. I cut all the envelopes in once session. (it's just the way my mind works)
From my home to yours, have a blessed Yule!
