I love card designs that are different from the standard folded card base. Today’s project features a tag tucked inside of a pocket that would make a fun invitation to a holiday party, or an interactive Christmas Card with your family’s photo and sentiment tucked inside. Let’s take a closer look!
I created this project using Echo Park Paper’s ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas collection. (Be sure to take notice of all of the GORGEOUS hand-painted artwork in both Volume I and Volume II of this collection!)
The tag was cut with my Silhouette Cameo machine from the Dark Red/Cream Solid Cardstock using the “3 Tags” cut file by Lori Whitlock (Design #46903 in the Silhouette Design Store). The top of the tag is adorned with a wreath die cut and a “Merry Christmas” sticker banner.
The pocket for the tag was cut using the Christmas Time Paper (How cute is that Christmas plaid?!) and the “Library Pocket” cut file by Silhouette (Design #4301 in the Silhouette Design Store). I added some manually die cut branches to the front using the A Perfect Christmas Be Merry Branch Die Set and the Classic Green Felt Cardstock before adding the other elements.

Do you enjoy adding homemade touches to your seasonal or home decor? Greet your guests as they arrive to your home for Thanksgiving dinner this year with a beautiful Fall wreath hanging on your front door. Or try hanging it across a mirror or mantle.
You will need a package of Fall Leaf Die Cut Shapes (34115) by American Crafts, an old dictionary, a wreath form, and your hot glue gun. Let’s get creating!
I purchased an old dictionary at my local donation center for just a few dollars. I used a pair of scissors to cut several simple leaf shapes out of the book pages.
Next, I used a glue gun to add the leaves to a grapevine wreath form. First, I lightly rolled/folded the Fall Leaf Die Cut Shapes into a cone and adhered them to the wreath form, making sure I distributed the colors evenly. Then, I filled in the spaces in between the colorful leaves with the neutral bookpaper leaves.
I used my electronic die cutting machine to cut several branch shapes from 12×12 Chocolate Textured Cardstock (71047) and adhered them here-and-there around the wreath to add a bit of variety.
The final step was to top my creation off with a burlap ribbon bow. I love the way it turned out! I will be hanging this in my hallway across the front of a mirror for a bit of fall flair!
