Four Seasons Card Set Gift - Video Tutorial

By Magda Cortez


Hi All.. December is around the corner and we start planning all the gifts, but sometimes we forget somebody! Well here is the perfect gift you can make-simple, affordable, and created in less than 60 minutes. Yes!!!! A set of cards for all occasions!



But not only a set of cards! I upcycled one of the Tag Boxes from G45! Isn’t fabulous?



We can make these cards so easily!


Tip: Fussy cut in advance and you always will have images on hand to make quick projects when the inspiration comes!

Have you seen the Seasons collection? It has a lot of beautiful birds! I love them all!!!



I did a YouTube video tutorial and I hope you like it! You can see more pictures in the video!

Such a fantastic assortment of lovely cards. The use of the box to gift the cards is brilliant! Thank you for the great tutorial.

Very pretty, Magda! It would be hard to give them away. Still, I want to make a set because they will carry over into next year and I can fussy cut without a lot of these ahead of time. Thank you for sharing.

I like the tip to do lots of fussy cutting when you have time. Sometimes the mood just strikes for a quick card and it's nice to have the pieces ready. Nice!

I love this card set. They are all so beautiful, but the upcycled packaging is just the BEST idea ever! Another note for my craft ideas book! I have a set of these and always thought the box was too beautiful to throw away, now I have ideas to use!

Absolutely gorgeous! Does anybody know what type of white glue she's using? Also is there a reason she glues black strips of paper to the backs of her fussy cutting then glues them onto the card?

Love the card set!!!!
