3 Fun Christmas Cards from Cyndy G.

Hello again crafty friends.  This week is Christmas in July with My Scrap Chick.  I'm glad to see you back today! 

I have new Christmas cards to share with you today.  All these projects are inspired by Father Christmas and feature traditional Christmas designs.

CG - Fireplace Slider Card
The Fireplace Slider Card is a penny slider card and Santa comes down the chimney. Santa's legs and boots slide up and down for a fun interactive card. The young and young at heart will love playing with this. Written instructions have been included in the pdf download.

CG - Santa Box Card

Next is a Santa Box Card.
This box card has 4 layers to create the traditional 3D scene of Santa checking his list. It folds flat for mailing so you can send it to anyone on "your" list.
CG - Santa Shape Card
And finally I have this jolly Santa Shape Card. You will love how simply this fun card goes together with Santa wearing his "spectacles" and colorful hat.
These are all cute cards to celebrate Christmas.  I hope to see you again tomorrow.

Be sure to join along with us in MyScrapChick Makers Group on Facebook for this week of Christmas in July.

Do what inspires you,
Cyndy G.

Mason Jar Box Card for Christmas

So happy to see you back today.  I have another box card to share - a Christmas Mason Jar Box Card.  This one is super cute.  How sweet is this card.  It would make a fun birthday card.  I think it would also be a great card to give to someone you bake Christmas cookies with!

I wish I could stay decorated for Christmas all year, it truly is my favorite time of year.  Hope you see you tomorrow.
Do what inspires you,
Cyndy G.

Inspiration from Christmas Past

Sharing these special projects by the design team from a Christmas past during our Christmas In July week at myscrapchick.com

 Gingerbread Man Shape Card
This is such a sweet card by Nancy @ The Nickel Nook 
"He'd make a cute decoration too, wouldn't he?
He just needs a bunch of friends around him!"

Here's another wonderful card by Nancy where she plays with her new "Opal Magic Paint". If you want to learn how she did this just visit her blog post here at The Nickel Nook and she will walk you thru the steps.

The snowman, tree and snowdrift were attached to the base with foam tape to give the card some dimension.

"This was a fun, easy card that is so cute!"

 The Nutcracker Set becomes Shape Cards
Sue turned the paper pieced characters from the Nutcracker Set in to these beautiful shape cards for her family. She shares all the "how-to's" in her blog post @ Sue Stamping Stuff.
 3D Poinsettia Christmas Ornaments 
Shirley @ Scrappy Sam Designs used 3 different files to create these gorgeous Christmas ornaments. I think they would look lovely too strung along as garland on the fireplace mantel.

Marlene aka Scrappin Cookie from the DT is the brain child behind our Bath Bomb Gift Box design. These have been a fun design to create and you can expect to see a few more for other holidays.

This beautiful sleigh and all it's beautifully decorative touches was done by Els @ The Art of Els Schutte
