Now onto the Christmas card. I will link all the products I use at the bottom of this post.
Originally I was going to use the background that was stamped with Party Dress and Something Borrowed but I felt the colours clashed too much with Grass Skirt. So I stamped another panel of white card – in landscape instead of portrait with Grass Skirt ink. I learnt to knit a few years ago so know that the V’s in the pattern point downwards and stamped with little fill in pattern with Party Dress, again making sure that the V’s went in the same direction as the poinsettia pattern. I did consider using Something Borrowed for this stamping.
I stamped three of the knit trees in Grass Skirt and diecut them all out. While I was planning on only using one tree for this card but wanted to have a couple others just in case I decided to add more – and I can save them for another card. The sentiment is stamped on a diecut Wonky Stitched rectangle.
Filling In Gaps
There was still too much white space for me, so I took the small knit heart from the stamp set and stamped in the spaces between the pattern. I tried to use Something Borrowed ink and tested this colour on a part of the card that would be covered, Garden Party ink as it gave a softer feel. The rectangle and tree are both popped up with some foam squares. I adhere this to an A2 standard sized card base and it’s ready to go. I did consider adding some Nuvo drops or sequins but I don’t think this card needs any bling. What do you think?
Don’t forget to leave a comment over on YouTube for your chance to win a prize! Comments must be commented by November 7th and you must indicate if you are USA or International.
I hope to see at our Facebook group – The Little Paper Treehouse Tribe, and hope you will share your card making creations (and other paper crafts) with us.
