Time to grab yourself some bargains!
Check out our latest $2 Tuesday deals below for some hip pocket savings. This month we have a Christmas in July theme happening and included a template pack of Page Drafts, Digital Kit and an add-on pack of Vignette Impressions to this months selection.
OOOH & Look... our fabulous Nifty Gal Sanna Lippert has done another awesome tutorial for you, this time a Christmas inspired treat!

I know, I know it's only half way through the year but if you are like me the next few months will fly by and before you know it, it'll be too late to get those handmade cards created. That's why Sanna decided to share with you a fantastic tutorial on how to make a set quickly using digital kits in this case our Berry & Fawn christmas kit. I hope you find it as inspiring as I do and motivator to kick start your christmas card making before its too late, the clock is ticking remember!
Even though these cards are very easy and FAST to create they still have lots of layered effects and detail to make them really stand out. The best part since the layers are digital they aren't bulky in the mail allowing you to send them with regular postal fees...a total win win here!!!

So my first step was to choose a blue patterned paper from the Berry & Fawn digital kit as my starting point and then in my phot editing program I clustered and layered various digital elements from the kit and stacked some sentiments over each one. I don't do much measuring when creating, I just estimated enough space between each cluster (6 in total) so that when it came to cutting them after printing they would fit within the confines of the card bases.

After printing and cutting each hybrid sentiment I adhered them to the kraft card or white card bases. Now the fun part, dressing each card up. Some of the techniques I used were spritzing in and black or white ink, die cut some glittered stars and added them for extra dimension. I stapled twine to some or border punched some accents to create even more layers.

There are endless ways to spiffy up your cards some other nifty tips would include, adding dimensional magic to some elements giving them a glossy dimensional look. Paint Glimmer Glitter Glaze for sparkle or layer some fine tulle/ lace for an added tactile feel.  Just be mindful of not getting too chunky so you keep postage costs to the minimum.
