Time once more for the girls in the
Christmas Card Club
to show our makes.
Carol chose todays theme which is
Use a Stencil or Embossing folder.
I don't have any christmas type stencils
but I do have a few E.F.'s which fit the bill.
My first card uses an embossing folder
by Darice called
'Pine branches in Corner'
I used gold shimmer card to emboss
and then found a recycled card which had
a circle sentiment in the design which
just fitted nicely onto my card.,
I cut out using my Xcut circle dies and then
ran through a dots E.F. to look like snow falling.
(Actually it's to hide the marks from my
scratched cutting plates that I'm too much
of a skinflint to replace!!)
Backed onto black cardstock to pick up the
black wording and then mounteed onto
cream shimmer card stock for the card base.
A fairly quick CAS card with the added
bonus that the left over card can go back into my stock pile
to use another time!
I love it when a plan comes together.
Now it wouldn't be Christmas
without the old acetate would it
so here is the 2nd card I made.
Camera decided at this point to go all pinky on me
but as I love pink i'm not complaining.
This time I have used an E.F. by
Couture Creations called 'Rudolph.
I embossed onto green Vellum
and it came out a treat.
It looks just like parchment .
I backed onto green card which then makes the base
with the acetate sheet sandwiched into the spine
I used check washi tape to cover the spine
along with a strip of adhesive peel off ribbon
which had the sentiment already on it.
Gold /green stickers completes the look.
2 more cards for the pot and still sticking to
my resolve to use one recycled card and one made
from my stock of stamps/digis/E.F. or die cuts.
Entering the above card into the following challenges:
