Create a squashable Christmas Card with Kylie.Video included.

August 8, 2017

Hello friends, Kylie with you all today and I am very excited to be back for another term on the Kaisercraft Design Team.Such a wonderful company to represent.I am so grateful!

Today I have a fun tutorial for you all using the new Christmas Jewel collection.

This lovely collection features lots of silver glitter and foil as well as a beautiful array of tonings in mauve through to purple.Since it was so festive I really wanted to make a unique and fun card. I recently completed a ‘Squashable’ Christmas Card.Once folded this pint size cutie only measures 7.5cm x 7.5cm, BUT!…………..

When it opens out……..

It reveals your Christmas message as well as some photos for that personalised touch.

Since it folds in to be so compact it makes it the perfect size for adding to a gift or for mailing.Thanks to its numerous panels, it makes way for being able to add lots of embellishments-

The folding technique can be a tiny bit tricky to begin with…..Just a little,promise…… But once you master it you will find it very simple indeed.I have prepared a video tutorial today which will show you all how I made mine from start to finish.

I hope you have enjoyed my project and it inspires you to give one a go!

 Happy Crafting!

Kylie. xo

Hanami Garden slider card tutorial with Kylie.

February 17, 2017

Hello lovely friends!

It’s Kylie with you all again today, sharing an easy slider card you can make using a bobbin.I am using the new Hanami Garden collection for my card.

Here’s a closer look at my completed card.

I really love how this collection offers so many colour way choices, yet keeps the same theme.I have opted for a pink,black and gold colour palette for my card.The Cherry Blossoms from the collectables are soooo pretty!

I like making slider cards as they add that little bit of interest to the front of your card.You can also make them to any size you like.

I really loved the clear stamps that came with this collection.In particular the Cherry Blossom.Here you can see I have stamped it onto vellum and embossed it as an extra feature.

Lots of the collectables have been used, layered upon each other to create dimension and texture.

Here is a short video of how I made my card.

I really hope you have enjoyed my project today and you have a go at making your own slider card.

Until next time,

Kylie xoxo

Card Making Decorative Dies

Shaker card bonanza, by Kirsten Hyde

February 13, 2017

I am often giving classes, and get asked about how to create shaker cards. I decided to go through the process of creating some different shaker cards.  These nine 4″ x 4″ shaker cards, are created from one sheet of patterned paper. I used glass beads, half beads, sequins and micro beads inside the shaker boxes. The shaker boxes has been made from packaging or hand made with dies, acetate, paper and 3d foam.

I have used micro beads, beads, sand, sequins and half beads inside the cards. In the video below, I am going through the different ways of creating these shaker cards.

Individual cards shaker cards:

Cards with shaker boxes made from packaging:

Card created with a hand made shaker box, from a frame from the collectables:

Cards with hand made shaker boxes, created with dies:

Cards with a shaker box with a pattern:

Cards with several shaker boxes:

These shaker cards are great, where you want different colour beads or sequins inside different parts of the card. To create these cards, you create several shaker boxes behind the front cardstock.
