Aft'noon me ol' lovelies! I haven't been around for a while... busy doing commissions, but now I am back (for the time being).
I'd like to show you a funny, cute little card I did for the last issue (Oct 2013) of Crafts Beautiful.
What you need...
Card stock: white, aqua, pale grey, black
Stamps: Freezy Fellas, All Yule Need - Paper Smooches
Embossing folders: D'Vine Swirls, Snowflakes - Cuttlebug
Promarkers: Ice Grey 1, Lime Green, Lime Zest, Pear Green, Raw Sienna
Ink pad: Onyx Black - Versafine
What you do...
Emboss aqua card with snowflakes, distress with a sanding block and cover the top two thirds of a 12.5cm square blank.
Trim a wavy edge along one side of grey card, adhere to the blank overlapping the aqua card. Emboss swirls on white card, cut a wavy edge along on side and fix to the bottom of the blank, trimming any excess.
Stamp the tree four times onto white card, colour three in shades of green. Cut the tops off three and layer at an angle finishing with the white one, trim any excess.
Download and print the snow drip and snow pile from Crafts Beautiful. Stamp and cut out two stick arms and attach to the side of the snow pile, then add two googly eyes.
Attach the tree, snow pile and drip to the blank and cut a wavy edge along a piece of white swirl embossed card and adhere to the blank with foam tape so it covers the bottom of the snow pile and tree trunk.
Stamp and trim the sentiment into an arrow, mount onto black card and attach to the top left corner. Finish with a few gems.
Of course you can use any stamps or embossing folders you have in your craft stash. The snow drip and snow pile are free to download from the Crafts Beautiful website, plus there are lots more images and free patterned papers to choose from. You just need to register, which is also free.
Just before I sign off, I am pleased to announce that one of my lovely chickens, Bren, laid her first little egg on Tuesday. She also laid one whilst I was with her yesterday and there was another waiting for me this morning. They are only small, but oh so perfectly formed. I have a suspicion Hattie may be then next one to go into production. Watch this space....
Thanks for dropping by xxx
