On to the fifth project I made with the Homemade Holiday kit (I still have more, hope your not sick of them by now!).
Supplies from the kit:
- Popcorn Tree and Charles Cardinal Stamps
- Clear Card Box
- Holly Jolly Stripe and Let It Snow paper
- Maraschino, Leapfrog, Harvest and Announcement Cream cardstock
- Snowflake embellishment
- Copic Markers
- Snowflake Border Punch
- Sentiments I set (or other)
- Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa
- Distress ink in Peeled Paint
- Duster Brush
- Ruby Slippers Stickles
- Circle punches or cutters
- Foam Tape
I stamped and colored Popcorn Tree and Charles Cardinal for each card. For more info on how I colored Popcorn tree, you can go to THIS POST.
Crop around Popcorn Tree and punch out Charles Cardinal. Ink the edges with Peeled Paint Distress ink and a Duster brush. Stamp the “hello” sentiment form Sentiment Collection I. Matte both images with green.
Create and A2 size card from cream cardstock. Punch a 1 1/2″ wide, 4 1/4: long strip of green with the snowflake border punch. Adhere to the card base just slightly above the bottom of the card. Adhere a piece of patterned paper (4 1/4″ by 4 3/4″) over the top.
Adhere the images as shown using foam tape to pop up the cardinal. Adhere the snowflake embellishment.
I added Ruby Slippers Stickles to my cranberries. These new Glitz Stickles are really sparkly!
I created 4 cards for the set (varying the colors). Then I added a band around the card box. The band was made with a 2 1/4″ wide strip of cream, then a 2 1/2″ strip of red punched on both sides with the snowflake border punch (the strip is 2″ wide after punching), then a 1″ strip of Stripe paper. I matted Charles Cardinal on a circle and scalloped circle for the center. (He’s a little glitzed up with some Stickles there….).
I’ve joined Paper Craft Planet and I would *LOVE* to have more friends. So if you are on there or join please add me as a friend. (acckk… I feel like I’m in High School).
There is also a Group over there for Paper Garden Projects. I’m hoping to use it to share ideas, projects and news – so please join – if you’re so inclined.
