Who fast forwarded the clocks again!!
It's time for the girls in the Christmas Card Club
to show their cards using the theme picked by Asha
The Holly And The Ivy.
A quick look through my used christmas cards
and I found this robin card with lots of Ivy.
Artists name is shown as Audrey North .
I decided to give it the tiled effect
so I first adhered the card front to cardboard
from a cereal box and then another layer
of the same for more strength.
I trimmed to 4" x 5 and marked out on the back
a grid of 1" squares which I numbered 1 to 20
in order to know where they all went once cut!
I then marked a piece of red cardstock
into a 1.25" grid with my Scor-pal to give
the appearance of the grouting between the tiles
and adhered them all into place.
So that was the ivy element now I needed the Ivy
Remembered I had a Joanna Sheen Ivy die
and cut it out twice using white shimmer card.
I didn't have any green card stock the right shade
so once cut out I coloured in with a promarker.
A little glue from a glue stick and a sprinkling
of glamour dust gave the frosted look.
I used a Britania word die for the sentiment
which was cut and coloured the same way.
The little bit of ivy was left over from
where i arranged it round the tiling .
