The Magic of Christmas: Limited Edition 2019 Holiday Kit

Hi friends! TGIF! ‘Tis the season for our highly anticipated Limited Edition 2019 Holiday Card Kit! This year it’s lovingly titled, The Magic of the Season! This kit was lovingly assembled with the traditional crafter in mind that gives a tip of the hat to classic colors or red and green, rich plaids, classic Santas, classic winter botanicals, and MORE!

Please note that this card kit is not part of our monthly card kit subscription. Even if you are a subscriber, you must purchase this kit separately if you would like to.

While we are pleased to offer many pieces of this kit individually, like our brand NEW The Magic of Christmas stamp set, this kit packs a major VALUE in buying as a set and is only available in a smaller batch while supplies last!

25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi everyone! It’s Shari here with a special tag as part of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags event on the “In My Creative Opinion Blog“.

This year I’m inspired to mix up some textures. I have Metallic, Kraft, Glittered, and natural going on with this tag.

I used a Tim Holtz Botanical 3D embossing folder on Metallic Kraft cardstock. I’ve die cut the Tim Holtz Sizzix Ice Flake from white cardstock and the Simon Says Stamp Marie Snowflake from Desert Storm cardstock. I’ve covered both with Gel Medium and sprinkled them with Distress Rock Candy Glitter. From there I added some great embellishments and finished it off with a bow on the top!

I hope I’ve given you some inspiration to mix up textures to create some holiday tags this year!
