I’ve been a busy beaver this past week – I’ve made over 60 cards – a mix of birthday and Christmas so blogging went by the wayside. Hopefully I’ll now have time to share the remaining Christmas projects with you.
Today’s card was a CASE from a swap I received from a fellow demo – Bev Poultney. It uses the stamp set #Elfie from page 22 of the Holiday Catalogue. There are no dies with this set so get ready for some ‘fussy’ cutting of the images.
Starting with a standard card base I die cut the square ‘window’ using the Layering Square dies and then cut a coordinating size frame using the Stitched Shapes dies. The presents have been stamped on a piece of scrap, coloured in with Stampin’ Blends and adhered with Mini Dimensionals.
From the inside you get a better look at how this card works. I die cut a Stitched Rectangle (this die set has got to be a must for every crafter) then stamping directly onto the rectangle added the ‘no peeking’ image and the parcels in Memento ink. The parcels were then coloured in with Stampin’ Blends to coordinate with the front parcels. On a scrap of cardstock I restamped the ‘no peeking’ image, coloured it in then fussy cut the elf out. Once cut I added the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint for the trim on his hat and top. The cut out image gets adhered with dimensionals on top off the fully stamped image.
Here you can see how the stamped image is suspended to show through the ‘window’. When you close the card the image stand lies flat. Here’s another view.
This was such a fun card to make – thanks Bev for sharing this.
Well that’s all for now. Until next time …
