I recently received a box of wonderful new Holiday products from the Jolee’s Boutique line. It’s never too early to get started on holiday projects so I sat down and made a couple of cards, a wall hanging and even got a gift wrapped!
My first card, shown above, was really quick and easy. The Jolee’s embellishments are so detailed and already have adhesive on the back all you need to do is peel and stick and you’ve got a lovely card in minutes. I layered gray cardstock on a red cardstock base and then added some of the beautiful new cream Crinkle Artisan paper (the best thing about this paper is it’s self adhesive!). Next I strung some of the silver Fabric Cord across the top and added the stocking and sparkle circle felt stickers and a stamped saying.
This next card was made with a green cardstock base and I die cut some of the adhesive red Glitter Paper. This paper die cut beautifully and I love how it sparkles with all the glitter in it. I also stamped on the paper, it takes ink really nicely. Then I added the pretty Poinsettia stickers and wrapped around some more of the Fabric Cord.
I wanted to try some of the larger Hand Dyed Artisan papers for wrapping a present and it turned out great. I used some of the Paper Tape to close the package, it adds such a nice touch and then I finished off my gift with a Paper Tag that has a sweet resin embellishment on it.
Lastly I used some of the Embroidery Silk Petal papers, these stitched and self adhesive papers are really stunning, on a wall hanging. I adhered the paper to a paper mache’ hanger adding a copy of a vintage post card, a red Burlap Flower embellishments and more of the felt sparkles. I can’t wait to hanging this up for the holidays!
I hope you enjoyed looking at my new holiday projects. Be sure to visit the Jolee’s Boutique website for more product info and ideas.
