It is time to start thinking of making handmade Christmas cards for those special people on your card list.  When creating your cards be sure to check out all the seasonal items we have at AlteredPages.com



Today I am sharing a card made with this cute Reindeer Stamp called "Special Delivery".  Stamp the image on white card stock with black ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Color image with Copics. Tear the image from card stock, making it a little larger then an ATC. Distress edges with brown ink.

Layer Green Two Scoops Cardstock and Hello December Pattern Paper on card base with Double Sided Tape. Adhere image to the card.  Print the  Altered Pages ATC Decorative Borders Collages Sheet on Craft Attitude™ printable film.  Cut out the frame you choose to use.  With the printed side down adhere over the stamped image on the card.



Add the Mini Edge Red border on the bottom and the Merry Christmas Banner from Glitz Hello December What Nots.  With VeraMark ink the Chip Board Snowflakes and heat emboss with white embossing powder, attach clear Dew Drops to the center with Tacky Glue.

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle.


Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today.

One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer above used th…

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.



With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up. 



Decorate the flap side of your envelope.  This will be the inside of your card.  Fold the envelope again and decorate the side that will be the front of your card.





Cut a panel of card stock to fit inside the 6 1/4 Commercial (letter) envelope.  Att…
