12 Days of Giveaways - Day 9 | Merry Christmas | Becki Adams December 9, 2021 07:00 2 Comments

 

Hello Just Nick Studio friends! Becki here to share some simple Christmas cards with you for day 9 of the 12 days of giveaways. The free cut file for today is the "Merry Christmas 3" cut file.

These cards are simple but eye catching and easy to make! The Merry Christmas 3 cut file makes creating these cards a breeze. 

I went with a non traditional color scheme for these cards. Sometimes, I like to change things up. This time, I changed it up and made these cards with a cool color palette of teal, purples, and blue. I wanted these designs to be easy to reproduce so I used strips of cardstock to create the backgrounds on each of these cards. The "Merry Christmas 3" cut file makes adding sentiments to these cards SO easy! I filled an entire 12x12 cutting mat with the cut files so that I had sentiments for several cards.

Each card has 4 sentiments stacked together to create a "chipboard" effect. I love giving my cards a little bit of dimension. On this card, I adhered many 1/8" x 4" strips of cardstock. Then, I adhered the Merry Christmas sentiment. For a last minute finishing touch, I added a few iridescent sparkles.

This card is similar to the first but comes together much quicker. On this one, I adhered 1/4" strips of cardstock at an angle across the card panel. Again, I stacked the Merry Christmas sentiment I the middle of the cardstock strips. And again, I added a few sparkles to finish the card.

I cannot wait to see what you create with the FREE Merry Christmas 3 cut file!!

This offer is only valid until midnight CST on December ENTER DAY AND YEAR at midnight CST.
No purchase necessary. The correct cut file must be loaded to the cart in order for discount to auto-apply. No refunds will be given. The design will still be available in the JustNick Store for purchase after the discount code expires.

Happy Holidays and happy crafting!! 


Photo Embroidery Hoop! | Morgan Langley December 19, 2017 07:00

Hey crafty friends! Today I am showing a project that is perfect if you need a thoughtful handmade gift to give for Christmas! I used the "Snowflakes 2" and "Holiday Tags" cut files! 
            
To start I got my embroidery hoop ($.97), fabric ($1), elastic ($1), and felt sheets ($.23) at Walmart. Then I opened and loosened my hoop, laid the elastic across where I wanted it and then placed the fabric on. I closed my hoop and pulled the fabric and elastic tight. Then, print your pictures!
These felt flowers are my favorite part and they are super easy to make! First start with the middle part of the flower cutting a strip and then cutting strips all the way down. 
Then fold it into a circle and add some hot glue. Then add your petals! Depending on how large you want your flower is how long to make the middle of the flower and how big you cut your petals! 
Then add layers of petals to make it look more full! 
For the leaves I cut the shape and then add some hot glue to the tip and fold it. 
I also add little felt roll ups, (buds maybe?) to add texture. You just cut a strip that tapers a little and then roll and glue! 
I cut my snowflakes from white and blue card stock and they really helped to fill in the extra space tucking then between the elastic and under the photos. 
I added the joy tag layered with a patterned paper circle and a felt circle connected with bakers twine. I also tied a red bow to the top of my hoop and glued a button where the elastic pieces met. I added pom pom ribbon along the hoop for added fun! 
Thank you for stopping by today! There are so many ways to use these beautiful cut files and so many projects to create with these felt flowers! Merry Christmas and happy crafting! Follow me on instagram @morewithmorganl and follow Just Nick @justnickstudio
