I'm soooo behind in posting the Holiday projects from my classes and other projects so for the next few days, I'll get some of them posted.
The first set of photos are the cards from a Christmas Card class
Santa! Ho! Ho! Ho!
The first card is my favorite.
Not only is it a shaker card, but it is also a gift card holder!
Real Red Cardstock:
(1) 4 1/4" x 11". Score at 1 1/4" & 5 1/2" and (1) 4" x 4"
Whisper White Cardstock:
(1) 4" x 5 1/4" (inside stamping piece) (1) 4" x 4" (use for die cutting the Santa front)
Basic Black Cardstock:
(1) 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" (inside layer) (1) 4 1/8" x 4 1/8" (card front layer)
Window Sheet: 4" x 4"
Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper: Scraps pieces (use for die cutting Santa's hat fur & stars)
Inside the front flap is the pocket to hold a gift card.
If you don't need a gift card holder, you can simply make the base a little shorter and not include the gift card flap on the end.
When I saw Carolyn King's metallic snowflake card here, I knew I wanted to CASE it. I cut my paper at a steeper angle and used a different sentiment.
It's a simple card but packs a huge WOW factor with the metallic paper and heat embossing.
Heavy Whisper White: 11" x 4 1/4" Score at 5 1/2"
Year of Cheer Designer Series paper: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" - cut in half (can make 2 cards!)
Gold Foil Sheets:
1/4' x 6" (trim ends after adhering to the card front)
Scrap pieces for die cutting snowflakes
Whisper White Cardstock: Scrap piece for die cutting the snowflake
Warm Winter Mittens
I LOVE these mitten dies! They are so much fun and have so many variations!
I cased this card from another demonstrator's blog. I'm sure I have it on a Pinterest board and now can't find it. Do you go back to find your pins and can't find them? If I find it, I'll come back in to edit the post to give her credit.
Cherry Cobbler Cardstock:
Card Base-8 1/2" x 5 1/2" score at 4 1/4"

Gift Card/Treat Favor
This little triangle box is so stinkin' cute and super easy to make!
I found directions on Sam Hammond's blog. She calls it a "tent box". If you ever have need of a small gift box or a cute box to hold a gift card, this is perfect! It is great for filling with a bit of candy too!
Before sliding on the cover, the inside box can be filled with candy, a small gift or a gift card.
