Quick and Easy Christmas Decoupage Cards

Hi everyone. Kay here - owner at White Rose Crafts - dropping by to show you the Dovecraft Christmas Decoupage and Paper Pads, which truly are like a "mini kits". 

I decided to have a play with one of these $5.99 pads, to see how many cards I could get out of it. Each pad contains four 8x8 inch glittered die-cut decoupage sheets in two designs, four 8x8 inch glittered sheets in two designs, four 8x8 inch backing papers in two designs and four 8x8 inch double-sided sheets in two designs. 

We have four different pads, and I chose the purple-themed "Brown Bears" pad, partly because I love purple, and partly because it's not one of the traditional Christmas colors , and I do like things that are a little bit different. 

I also thought the little teddy bears were super cute.

I decided to keep the cards fast and simple, because Christmas is one of those times when we do send cards "in bulk", so being able to put a pretty card together quickly is definitely an advantage, so I avoided complicated or fancy techniques, and just let the papers speak for themselves.  

I was also focusing on value for money, so I haven't used a ton of extra items - mostly just odds and ends that I had in my stash - plus a couple of Peel-Off Stickers sheets from Craft Creations for the sentiments. I chose the silver on white version of "Let It Snow" - I LOVE the snowball splotches! - and the silver version of the "Across The Miles" sheet, which I really like because my family are a long way away, and I like the idea of sending them loving wishes "across the miles".

I'm here to tell you that I have only used HALF of the pad, and I've already made TWENTY Christmas cards out of it, and I've still got exactly half of the whole sheets left, plus quite a few usable scraps. 

I'm amazed! I hope you like them. Thanks for reading, and...

Happy Crafting from us all at White Rose Crafts!

New Stock Release Day

 It is Release Day here at White Rose Crafts and we have all kinds of new international crafting supplies to our store!  We have added new papers and paper packs from several companies, toppers, and what we are most excited about a new line of stencils from 13@RTS.

We have been loving the Polish line of 13@RTS ever since we started carrying them, and are so excited to be expanding our collection.  Today our design team has been playing with a few of the new stencils and we wanted to give you first peeks.

Design Team Member Chris is playing with the the new stencil Moment in Time from the new Unforgettable Collection.  We love how this stencil can be used as one piece or used as two different stenciled images.

Design Team Member Bernadette created this gorgeous mixed media project using the new Grungy Butterflies stencil.  Needless to say, we are in love.


Design Team Member EK created this holiday card using the new Falling Flowers stencil.  We just love how she turned the floral stencil and snow flurries.  Pop on over to her page to see a full pictorial tutorial on how she created this card.

Make sure you hop on over the store and check out all of our new products.  They can all be found in the NEW ARRIVALS section of the store.
