Ideas for Holiday Cards

Mosaic Moments Grid Cards make wonderful Holiday cards using a wide choice of dies from which to choose. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

  1. Joy (Circle Center Die, 1×4 Horizon die, Holly Border die set)
  2. Plaid Christmas (Fir Tree Die Set)
  3. Snowflakes (Snowflake set)
  4. Glitter and Pearls (Forest Border Dies)
  5. New Year (Hand Bell Die, Alpha 3 Caps, and Numbers dies)

I’ve focused on a few of the 2×2’s and border dies for these cards and I hope they will give you some inspiration for creating some of your own.

1. Joy

Quick and easy to assemble, this card was perfect for adding Nuvo drops. A small pool on drops in the well of the holly berry adds color and texture and when it is fully dry is self-leveling. The word JOY is stamped and then colored with Prismacolors and Gamsol technique. They are trimmed apart and centered in each section of the Circle Center Dies. The KaiserCraft Peace & Joy papers are perfect for cardmaking!

2. Plaid Christmas

Paper was cut so it would all stay in the pattern. The center 2×2 section I used the Fir Tree die and a square of plaid were laid in the background. Each tree is topped with a single sequin.

3. Snowflakes

Cut the pale aqua with the circle grid, the Swiss dot with the 2.125” square grid. Cut 3 snowflakes from the teal and 3 from the white. Assemble. Use the Stick It for the snowflakes. The Merry Christmas greeting is cut twice and stacked and centered on the card

4. Glitter and Pearls

Use the Basic Dies to cut the blue pearl sections. I increased my pressure on my Evolution Advanced just a tad to cut through the heavier weight glitter cardstock. I took the outtakes of the tree dies and lined a trio of trees overlapping just a bit for each of the side sections. To line up the trees, I used a T-Square ruler secured to the side of my mat to help me to line things up so very nicely! Once everything was on the card I put some weight on top to allow the glue to dry and keep all the pieces flat and in place.

5. New Year’s Party Card

Three squares in patterned paper, 1×6 sections and 6 – 1” squares are for the bases. The bells are cut from the mirror cardstock. To get the red bell to ring in the opposite direction I cut the red from the backside of the cardstock. The Letters are cut from the silver and glued in place. My new mini-strip die from Taylored Expressions is a huge time saver for me and it makes precise strips for the type of tagging I enjoy on my pages. I wrote the message with a white gel pen and trimmed one to the size I needed.  If you are having a party to ring out the old and in with the new, this just might be a fun card to send to your prospective guests!

If you have a few special friends that you’d like to send a special Christmas greeting to you just might find you’ll love playing around with your die and the Mosaic Moments Grid Cards!
