Free Handmade Holiday Cheer – Christmas Card Giveaway!

Bella Stitchery Christmas Card Giveaway

Woo! Christmas! I love this season SO much that I’m doing my part to spread the joy by giving away this three-card collection! I have lovingly designed these one-of-a-kind creations with a large die-cut greeting embellishment – complete with hand-cut star and pink rhinestone. I have also added baker’s twine and festive polka dot cardstock along the bottom. The inside is also fully embellished (just like a present!).

Each card is about 5.5 inches square and comes with a white envelope.

Birthday Girl

I recently made this birthday card for a very special 4-yr-old.  I thought the image looked just like her, so I was excited to make this unique greeting for her. 
I was also in the middle of moving, so I only had about 1/2 my scrapbook supplies on hand (how did I make it through without my goodies, you ask?  It wasn’t easy!)
I had no access to buttons, brads or ribbon, so I had to be a bit creative.  🙂 
I went a little Stickles crazy here and then embellished the card with tons of flowers and rhinestones.  The scalloped ovals and swirls in the corners are from the Storybook Cricut cartridge.

Back to School with Hello Kitty

My niece is starting the 4th grade tomorrow and I wanted to make her a special back to school card.
She loves Hello Kitty and I found this great SVG file for those of you who use Sure Cuts a Lot with your Cricut.  I added red glitter to her bow using Martha Stewart’s Garnet glitter and some Ranger Glossy Accents

I also hand-cut the pencil and paper from the Cosmo Cricket “The Boyfriend” line of cardstock.
I used lots of sold cardstock and white ink to make the card itself look like a chalk board.
I’m off to see her now ~ hope she likes it!

Pop-Up Graduation Card

I caught up with my music teacher from jr. high on Facebook (don’t you just love it there?!) and she asked me to make a special card for her son’s high school graduation.  She said he loves guitars and his favorite color is red.  She also sent a picture of him playing a guitar from his music video.
What a fun project!  I knew I wanted to go 3D in some way to make all the elements fit.  Here’s how it turned out…
I hand-cut this hat and used the tassel from the Wild Card Cricut cartridge.
I found this guitar image online and then cut it out by hand (using VERY small scissors and watching my favorite reality TV show).  I also used a needle and thread to add strings and finished it off with brads.
I had a lot of fun with this piece and am really happy with the way it turned out.
My teacher and her son loved the card and that is the best part of doing any project!!
