Hello eCrafters! This week has been full of Christmas inspiration! and today, we get a double treat! Raven Baca designed some easy Christmas cards that would be a breeze to make and send out in time for the Holidays! Using colorful cardstock, the ecraft and Pink by Design Stamps, Raven created eye catching designs that will stay with you long after Christmas!

 Here is how she did it: 

Ornaments Card

Hi eCrafters. I hope this Thursday finds you doing well. Ready for the
weekend I'm sure!!!

This week I am so excited to share my projects with you all. I just

love the ease and swiftness of this beautiful eCraft. I started making
Christmas cards and realized it will be so quick this year to mass
produce Christmas cards for family and friends. Yeah the eCraft is
AMAZING!!! ;)

So with that said let me show you how I put this little cutie together
so that you can reproduce something similar if you'd like


What you will need for this project:
eCraft
Blue, Pink and white cardstock (I used Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink
from Stampin up as well as Wausau White Cardstock)
Vintage Stamps (I used Peace On Earth from Pink By Design)
eCraft Central Image (I used Frame 1)
Pattern Paper (I used Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses Paper Pad)
Ink (I used Cotton Candy and Peeled Paint Tim Holtz Distress ink, and
Bashful Blue from Stampin' Up!)

The finished dimension of the card is 6.5 x 5
Cut your pretty in pink cardstock at 4 7/8" x 6 3/8". Layer on top of card.
Cut your pattern paper at 4 4/8" x 6". Layer on top of the pretty in
pink cardstock.

Using your eCraft and White Cardstock place Frame 1 From
eCraftcentral.com into eCraftShop Pro. Change the style to blackout
This will remove anything drawn or framed in the inside. Cut frame at
4" x 4" . I had the tabs turned off and my pressure setting was at
4.5.

Next load Bahful Blue Stampin' Up! cardstock into your eCraft and
repeat the previous steps. The only difference was that my pressure
setting was set at 6 with the Stampin' Up! Paper because it is
thicker. ;)

Using a paper trimmer cut around your Bashful blue frame leaving about
a half an inch on each side.

Using your dye ink stamp three ornaments onto your white cardstock.
Stamp another pink ornament onto a scrap piece of white and cut around
it. Adhere your cut ornament to your main image using dimensionals.

 Deck The Halls


What you will need for this project:
eCraft
Blue, Pink and white cardstock (I used Pretty in Pink from Stampin up
as well as Wausau White Cardstock)
Vintage Stamps (I used Peace On Earth from Pink By Design)
eCraft Central Image (I used Mirror Frame 2)
Ink (I used Vintage Photo, Cotton Candy and Peeled Paint Tim Holtz
Distress ink, and Bashful Blue from Stampin' Up!)

The finished dimension of the card is 6.5 x 5

Import the cut files into eCraft Shop pro and resize to 2" x 3" Repeat
x3 or select copy on the upper left hand side and paste.
Next select the images and change the style to Shadow as opposed to
normal. This will give you that layered affect.

Stamp your image onto the white cardstock using Cotton Candy and

Peeled Paint Tim Holtz Distress ink, and Bashful Blue from Stampin'
Up!
Next with a sponge applicator apply Vintage Photo ink to the edges
Adhere the blue and green stamped images to the right and left sides.
Using a dimensional adhere the pink stamped image in the center. I
made it a little off center just because I like the messy look of it.
Finally stamp Deck the Halls onto the bottom center and voila another
finished Christmas card.

Thanks again everyone for stopping by!!! Have a great day!

Aren't those cards sweet?! Thank you Raven for the double treat!
