Some more ideas with the Transparent Peel Offs and other Christmas Card ideas.

For most of these cards I have used the Transparent Peel Offs and coloured them in with the Dufex pens. In order to do this and get an all over finish I have stuck the Peel Offs on to Acetate first, coloured them in and then trimmed them or in the case of the Lantern further down, cut an opening in the card and then cut the acetate slightly bigger to fix to the inside of the card. On this first card I have also coloured the Seasons Greetings with the Red Dufex Pen. All the products I used from my store are listed below.

Christmas Card Ideas

I have tried to put together a few simple ideas for Christmas cards using some of the tools I had already in my craft cupboard and some of the supplies from my store. 

Any of these ideas and styles can be adapted to suit the supplies and tools you already have in your cupboard. Sometimes it just means you only need to add one or two extra supplies to give your project the final touch.

Check out what you have in your craft cupboard!

Now for a few ideas.

Centre Step Card - Christmas Tree Double layered


 What a surprise I had when after writing up the instructions for the Centre Step Card following a demo on You Tube – I went to my craft supplies and I found that I had the exact size card in stock to create the card without cutting it down. All I needed to do was score, slice and fold. Too easy!

If you would like the instructions for the Centre Step card, leave a comment here or email me and I will forward them to you.


Another Centre Step Card

I will record the supplies I used at the bottom of this BLOG post.

and another


the inside


So quick and simple to make.


Another quick and simple one - what embossing folders do you have in your cupboard?


Some Peel Offs, some foil and an embossing folder!


Die cutters, coloured card stock, peel offs and embossing folder.


I painted the Peel Off sentiments with Dufex Brush Pens and now I have Green!


Patterned Acetate was used here. I think I will stock it. I like the fresh look! Now I have to decide - do I add a design in behind on the insert sheet or leave it white?


 I added a few Transparent Peel Off Baubles as well – in amongst the stars!

Moved away from the traditional Christmas colours and used silver blue ink to colour the embossed design. I used the Brush Pens again to change the Peel Off colours.


I used the same embossing folder to emboss the foil and then cut them out and popped them up on the background. The Peel Off sentiments and bows were coloured with the Brush Pens.


 I saw this idea below on You Tube and thought it didn’t look toooo difficult. Give it a try!


Half Swing Card


Half Swing Card - Inside

Mmmm kind of messed up the sentiment when I didn’t stick it down straight first time and pulled it off – didn’t get it right the second time either but…….you get the idea!

Card Ideas using Transparent Peel Offs

These new Peel Offs are fun to use as each card can have its own unique look by changing the background colour but using the same simple design. Lay the Peel Off onto cardstock and cut around the design or place the Peel Off directly on to the background. These are just a few ideas.

Baby Girl Card - Peel Off directly on to the background card stock.


Baby Boy card - placed on patterned paper and cut around.


Train - Laid on dark green cardstock and cut around - then popped up with foam dots.


Train - straight onto background.


Christmas Lantern - Coloured with special pens - 3 dimensional. Oval cut and lantern attached to acetate
