It has been a few weeks since my last post, I have been making cards but just not posting. I have also been creating craft items for an upcoming Christmas Market Day that I attend in Moora each year, so I have been busy stitching for that as well.
I recently purchased the Crumb Cake medium envelopes from Stampin' Up and Crumb Cake being a favourite colour of mine I decided to make a Christmas card using it as the base card to go with the envelopes. I am going to make sets of these for the Christmas Market Day.
I had a lot of false starts before I created this card and with the medium envelope being slightly smaller that the average C6 size I had a few issues with my measurements until I got it correct (I was having one of those days).
The stamp sets used are Christmas Lodge, Petite Pairs and the Take a Ticket Stampin' Wheel.
The Christmas Lodge was stamped with Staz On Black and the snow was coloured using the White Gel Pen. The border was stamped using the small leaf stamp in the Christmas Lodge stamp set.
The ticket was made by colouring in the outline of one of the tickets on the Take A Ticket Stampin' Wheel with a Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker and rolling this onto Whisper White cardstock. The sentiment, from the Petite Pairs stamp set, was then stamped in the middle of the ticket and the ticket then cut out.
Once the centre piece had been finished, Whisper White Bakers Twine was wrapped around the piece before it was adhered to the card using dimensionals. The ticket was also layered up with dimenionals and a button from the Neutrals Designer Button added with a piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine tied through the holes. The button was adhered using a glue dot.
The measurements for the card are:
Crumb Cake - 14cm x 21cm, folded in half to create the base card.
Whisper White - 13.5cm x 10cm, embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing folder.
Crumb Cake - 10.5cm x 7.5cm.
Whisper White - 10cm x 7cm.
Crumb Cake - 9.5cm x 6.5cm, image stamped on this piece.
