Same But Different Christmas Card Series 2020 – Strips & Stripes + Video!

Do you like stripes on a card… how about stripes on a Christmas card?… or SIX! Welcome back to my Same But Different Christmas Card Series for 2020!

I had such fun playing with these strippy stripes from Ellen Hutson but you could certainly trim your very own to whatever size that you like with a paper trimmer.

I chose some beautiful colours from the Concord & 9th Sampler Pack and stacked them up in all different patterns. It was very easy to do! But what makes it real fun is the critters that I added today starting with a polar bear from MFT’s Merry Moments.

This sentiment is from the Holiday Tag Talk set and I made it into a Chat Bubble.

My second card features a deer and tree from Ellen Hutson’s Santa’s List.

As well as a simple sentiment from the Modern Poinsettia set.

Next I thought it would be fun to die cut a ‘stippy’ sentiment using the Fine Alphabet Die Set from Altenew.

I added a sweet little mouse and some enamel hearts.

Time for some Christmas Cheers and a Sun-Lovin’ Santa flamingo.

I thought it would be fun to have the stripes featured in a negative space frame.

And here is a sweet little Penny Black hedgehog,

  1. I love the theme of stripes with these cards today. We all have bits and pieces of card stock squirreled away that we can’t throw out and this is a great and creative way to use them. Those little animals make a cute appearance on the cards.
    Merry cheers
    Lisa

  2. Great cards Therese. Love the stripes and the sweet little images, all beautifully coloured. Think my favourite is the mouse and the CHRISTMAS die cut. Very clever ❀️

  3. Another EH product that slipped by me?? Well, I see those stripe-makers made it into the proper hands, my friend! LOve how finished each wonderful strip of cardstock has a perfect edge! KNow what else I love?? Every bloomin’ thing about every card! [you started the kitties without me! lol]
    Off to watch… xo
    =]

  4. Wow! what a wonderful array of striped Christmas cards Therese. Love that they are not traditional but such a lovely way to make an amazing variety and in such a fun way.

      1. um yes definately Covid kilos here – no walking to the train since the start of the year, no lunch time walking for 4 months! oh and things like pancakes! Had my first day back at work this week since the start of stage 4. Youngest daughter has actually made an ab workout for me! Not seeing any results yet though.

        Great video. A fab way to use up all those little bits of cardstock if you don’t have the die. Agree don’t know how I ever stamped without a repositioning tool!

      2. ooh I think I need your daughter’s ‘ab workout’ too lol. My problem is I would look at it with the best of intentions… we were lucky that our lockdown ended quite fast compared to yours at least I have been able to go swimming again. I am also glad to hear that you are back to work, what wonderful news!

      3. The workout is crunchies, dead bugs, russian twists and one other that I can’t remember the name of! Plus push ups.
        My family are swimmers too, except me, and it has been really hard for them not being in the pool pretty much since March. Recently they have been able to get a couple of swims in, (hubby usually swims 3 times a week) but they keep missing out on the bookings – demand is high and very few spots!
        Back to work 1 day instead of 3 until further notice. I’m rather happy about that, one day is nice! I still might make a dent in that stash. πŸ˜‰

      4. There is my problem I like the sweet stuff! Really must start practicing moderation now my metabolism isn’t what it use to be! The last exercise is toe taps if you want to give any of them ago πŸ˜‰

  5. I absolutely love all of these adorable cards. I could watch this video for hours…..you are always such an inspiration, but TODAY! Thanks for all you share and wishing you the best.

  6. These are all amazing. Thank you for the wonderful inspiration. I’ve been struggling with creating lately. I don’t know if it’s the pandemic, or just brain overload. This has given me some wonderful ideas. I always love your videos, and I really like that we get to see you in them now. Enjoy your day!

  7. Your luscious coloured stripped stripes paired with cute critters are all so inspiring, Therese … brilliant creative ideas, so wonderfully presented. Each one is special … my white space loving heart is especially taken with the Merry Christmas skating mouse and the Be Merry reindeer and Christmas tree! Watching you create is such a lovely way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon … merci mille fois! Hugs, Anita πŸ™‚

  8. Echoing the others: your cards are strips-and-stripes sensational! Now I have even more reason to ‘collect’ my little bits of cardstock! Love these!
    I don’t comment often, but do know I see – and LOVE – everything you make!
    hugs~carol

  9. LOVE these cards! Love the colors and simplicity of them. (although I think I would have had the stripes all wonky!) Thanks so much for sharing.

    1. hahaha wonky stripes can look great too! Acutally they weren’t difficult to line up as the cardstock is quite sturdy. Thansk so much for your lovely visit here today Mona!

  10. I love watching your videos on my ‘big’ screen. Since I get to see you when you introduce them it’s like having you in my own craft room. The stripes are so colorful and fun with the darling critters.

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
