A Kiwi Lane & Authentique Paper Christmas!

EVERY Day until Christmas we are celebrating with Kiwi Lane Designs! Join us here on the blog for inspirational projects each day from our Design Team!

********************
Shellye here with a couple of quick projects using 
Kiwi Lane templates and Authentique's Joyous Collection!
I love the simple and classic shapes found in the Christmas Accessory Set
and I've used a couple of the pieces in the card and gift tag below.
First up I have an ornament shaped card:
I traced the larger ornament shape onto the 12X12 Joyous paper twice, as shown below:

You may line the inside of the card (if the paper pattern is too dark).

The smaller ornament was traced and cut out from one of the 6X6 Paper Pad pages and then attached to the side of the larger ornament with foam adhesive.

Peridot glitter added some sparkle to the ornament tops and a fun puzzle piece and stickers completed the smaller ornament's decoration.  I added a black/white baker's twine with a glue pen.

Next I have a really quick poinsettia gifting tag.  I'm always in need of pretty tags!
I cut the shape from the Joyous 12X12 paper twice and then sanded around the edges.  For the leaves, I used the same poinsettia template on one of the green 6X6 Paper Pad sheets.

Embellish with a vintage sticker from the collection and you're finished!

  1. Do you know I went shopping today and bought a load of papers and when I got home it turns out they are all Authentique. How cool is that! Love Kiwi Lane templates but not on facebook so will have to visit their site instead. Love the poinsettia in the christmas accessory set. Flower power cards.....
