Good Tuesday morning. I have been enjoying playing with the holiday sentiment dies. They are so perfect to create clean and simple cards. My project today was made using the new Impression ObsessionPeace die paired with the Pine Sprig Cluster, Holly Leaf Cluster and the Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames. I know I keep repeating myself saying this over and over but I just can’t seem to help it. I love the crispness of the red and green against the all white background.
I started by apply masking tape to the back of the frames and attaching them to the card base. I popped the sentiment up on the card base with rolled up 1/8” double stick tape.
Attach the tape to a hard surface.
Roll up with your fingers to create a long thin string of adhesive.
The designer paper was applied to the card base with ATG. The green frame was attached the card base using rolled up 1/8” double stick tape. The tag was applied to the card base with mounting tape.
I applied Crafter’s Pick glue to the holly and pine and dipped in crystal fine glitter. The peace sentiment and holly berries were cut from red glitter cardstock. I formed the foliage with my stylus and molding and attached to the tag with glossy accents. I rounded the berries with the large stylus and attached to the foliage with rolled glue dots. The sentiment was attached with rolled up 1/8” double stick tape. I had a difficult time getting good pictures of this. The berries and sentiment were cut with the same cardstock yet show so differently in the photos. It really is so much cuter in person than shows in the photos.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a great day.
Good Saturday morning. My project today is a lovely and elegant ornament card made with the Creative ExpressionsSentimental Bauble set. I paired it with the Holly Accessory Kit and the Granada decorative panel. I layered the ornament over a piece of retired small patterned holiday paper to give it more depth and to show better against the all white background.
I cut the Granada layer and attached it to the card base with small pieces of mounting tape. I cut the ornament using red glitter cardstock and then cut the outline of the ornament out again with the decorative paper and attached the two together with glossy accents. I cut the peace sentiment layer and hanger using gold foil cardstock. I attached the ornament to the card base with mounting tape.
I cut the holly leaves, applied a light shading of crushed olive with a mini applicator, scored them with my leaf tool and leaf pad, lightly formed them with my stylus and molding pad and attached them to the top of the ornament with glossy accents. I created a gold organdymulti loop bow and attached over the tops of the holly leaves. I cut three red berries with my 1/4” circle punch, rounded them with my stylus and molding pad and attached each one to the holly leaves with rolled up glue dots.
Here’s a closer view of the ornament and holly and bow embellishment. I love the Holly Accessory Kit. It has different sized holly leaf combinations that makes it very useful for holiday card making.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
I started by applying pumice stone ink with a mini applicator to the tree trunks and branches of the birch trees. I created double mounted frame, attached rolling hill sections to the back of the frame to create the ground areas, attached the trees with ATG and attached it to the card base with mounting tape.
