The north pole

  • Hunkydory cute Christmas luxury card collection: the north pole
  • 8x8" & 6x6" card blanks
  • Gold mirri card

For the 8" card, I cut a mat of mirri card to fit the card front. I then trimmed the cardstock down and layered this onto the card, with the border down the folded edge. I then added the snow globe topper and sentiment on foam pads to create dimension.

inside

I created the first 6" card using the other patterned cardstock from the set. The decoupage layers for the snow globe fit the printed images on this sheet. I cut the card to sit on the card front with a mat of mirri card. I then layered up the santa and added the north pole beside him to add the mirri shimmer, give the card dimension and complete the scene. The finishing touch was a sentiment above.

inside

I used the remaining cardstock for the final card. I trimmed the border to sit across the base of the card and glued it down flat. I then measured and cut the printed North pole piece to fill the space above. I then added the postcard topper, positioned to be framed by the north pole sign.

festive treats

  • Hunkydory festive elegance luxury card collection: festive treats
  • Hunkydory second little book of Christmas
  • Silver mirri card
  • A5, DL and 6x6" card blanks
  • I made the first A5 card using the little topper squares from the collection. I covered the card front with the bright patterned card, cutting the section with the bow print to fit. I then spaced out the four square toppers in the mid section of the card and glued with foam pads. I added the matching insert inside to complete the card.

 Using the other half of the cardstock to create this 6" square card. I turned the sheet on its side so the pattern ran as a border down the side and trimmed to fit the card front. I then added the large rectangular topper, with the sentiment overlapping.
I used a coordinating sheet from the little book to make this A5 card. The rectangular frame worked well to edge the little book image and create separation from the patterned card stock. I covered the card front with the patterned card, then glued the image flat and the frame on foam. I finished the inside with the coordinating insert.
inside

For this DL card, I used the remaining patterned cardstock and another of the square toppers. The image was printed on the cardstock, so I simply trimmed it down to fit on the DL card with a border of silver mirri card. I completed with the sentiment topper on foam in the space above the image and the insert trimmed to fit inside.

Merry Christmas, sausage!

  • Hunkydory cute Christmas luxury card collection: Merry Christmas, sausage!
  • 7x7", 6x4" & DL card blanks
  • Gold mirri card
I created this 7" square card using the largest topper from the set. I mat and layered the patterned cardstock and gold mirri onto the card front. I then positioned the topper on using foam pads, so the scarf border on the topper lined up with the dog on the backing card. I completed the card with the coordinating sentiment from the set, overlapping the topper on deeper foam pads.
inside
Using the other piece of patterned cardstock, I created the DL card. I chose the DL format as it fit both borders on, I simply cut the cardstock to fit the card front. I then added the oval topper and large sentiment on foam pads for dimension. I completed the inside with the matching insert trimmed to fit.
inside
For the 6x4" card, I cut down the remaining cardstock to fit the front of the card, this time removing both borders. I then layered the bottom border onto the card with foam pads to create dimension. I added the square topper above the border on foam pads to complete.

Let it snow


  • Hunkydory snowy season luxury card collection: Let it snow
  • Hunkydory the little book of snowy scenes
  • Hunkydory essential book of Christmas sentiments
  • A5, 5x7", 7x7" & 6x6" card blanks
  • Silver mirri card
  • Silver ribbon
I began with the 7" square card, using the largest topper. I cut down the patterned cardstock to fit the card front with a mat of mirri. I kept the embellished corner and positioned it to the base fold of the card. I then used the frame from the other topper and glued this down flat. I added the image topper layered on top of the frame with foam pads to add dimension. I completed the card with a sentiment from the little book, as this was a more fitting shape than the sentiments provided in the collection. The inside was completed with an insert, trimmed to fit.
inside
 
I used the off cut from this cardstock to create a 5x7" card. I simply matted the cardstock onto the card, again retaining the corner embellishment. I created a topper by layering a trimmed down a little book image onto silver mirri card. I glued this onto the card with a sentiment from the collection. I added the insert to finish the inside.
inside
 
For the A5 card, I cut down the other patterned cardstock to fit the card front. I positioned the topper to sit below the sleigh print, using foam pads for dimension. I used a little book sentiment, positioned beneath on foam pads to complete the card. I took the coordinating insert and trimmed to fit for the inside of the card.
inside
 
With the final card, I created a 6" square card combining pieces from each of the patterned cardstock. I used the printed image from the darker cardstock as the main section of the card. I then trimmed down an off cut of the lighter cardstock to create a border, edged with silver ribbon. I added the sentiment tag to sit over the border and finished with a silver ribbon bow.

Christmas greetings


  • Hunkydory  Christmas classics luxury card collection: Christmas greetings 
  • Hunkydory the second little book of Christmas
  • Gold mirri card
  • 5x7" & 6x4" kraft cardblanks

For the first 5x7" card, I cut down the cardstock to fit the card front with a mat of gold mirri card. I positioned the border to the base of the card and added the topper above. I glued the centre piece down flat, then raised the surrounding frame. I also raised the sentiment on foam pads, which I placed  on the border edge.
 
For the second 5x7" card, I followed the same steps to mat the cardstock onto the card front with the mirri border. I then created a topper using the coordinating little book image. I matted this onto gold mirri and glued flat to the card, making it perfect for posting.

With the other patterned cardstock from this collection, I was able to create three 6x4" cards. I made the first using the image section of the cardstock, trimmed down with the border edge to fit the card front. I simply finished the card with a sentiment from the collection, positioned across the border.


 
For the second 6x4" card, I filled the card front with the patterned cardstock. I then added the topper centre piece flat and completed with the frame raised on foam pads.
I created the final card using a border strip and coordinating topper pieces. I covered the card front with the patterned cardstock, leaving a border of the kraft cardblank. I trimmed the border strip to size and glued this down the length of the card. I then added the the oval topper and frame to the side of the border, with the sentiment topper beneath.

    inside
    I used the remaining piece of pink cardstock to cover a 5x7" card blank. Since this had the image on, I simply embellished with the border strip down the side and a pretty sentiment from the essential book. I trimmed down the other half of the insert for inside, to be stamped with a greeting later. 
    inside
     With the lilac cardstock, I used the sentiment banner printed across the split in patterns as the base of the card. I finished this by matting onto silver and positioning the image topper in the centre. Again, the insert was placed inside to match the card front.
    inside
     I chose a little book image from another collection to compliment the remaining lilac cardstock. I cut the cardstock to fit the front. With the little book page, I rounded the corners and matted onto silver with rounded corners. The sentiment from the collection was positioned overlapping the topper. I finished the card with the coordinating insert glued inside.

cosy christmas

  • Hunkydory christmas classics luxury card collection: cosy Christmas
  • Hunkydory little book of Christmas
  • Hunkydory essential book of christmas sentiments
  • A5 & 5" square cards
For the first A5 card, I cut the patterned paper to fit the landscape card blank. I added the image topper, then positioned a coordinating sentiment from the essential book to sit on the border of the cardstock.
I trimmed down the remaining cardstock to fit a little square card. I used the image topper in its frame and a sentiment beneath to finish the front of the card.
I used the other patterned cardstock to create this A5 card. I took the frame from the collection and trimmed the matching image from the little book to sit inside. I glued this down with a sentiment topper beneath to complete the card.
For the final card, I covered the card front with the insert sheet from the set to create a soft background. To make the topper, I cut down the image from the patterned cardstock to sit inside the largest frame. I glued the image down flat, with the frame and border beneath on foam pads for dimension. I completed the card with the little sentiment in the top corner, again on foam.
