Christmas Carollers


This is another of the cards I made up while at Malham – I bought it from but cant find the sheet to see who designed it sorry – I seem to be doing that more often these days – think I might have to start popping a post it note on the finished card with the info..

So materials for this card I used ….

Heat mat to work on and protect your surface

6x6 white scallop edge card blank

The printed sheet

Narrow double sided tape

Sakura quickie glue pen

Glamour dust

Glossy Accents

Blending tool and pads

Tim Holtz distress ink pads in blue, green and yellow

A scrap of gold mirri card for the sentiment

Card Candi in blue and white with silver dots

To make the card ...

I folded the white card blank in half lining up the scallops – then using a blending tool I used the distress ink to colour the scallops by using a circular motion – I start on the heat mat and work towards the card so I don't end up with patches of deep colour.

I used green, blue and yellow pads – not in any order – it was just the mix to get a colour that I liked – you might like a different set of colours altogether so play – use a sheet of copier paper and play..its great fun – and you could even use what you played at for your cards as a unique backing sheet!

Next I cut out the main image and using double sided tape then a line of PVA I stuck it to the card leaving an even border all round the card.

The panel was next to be added and this was with large sticky pads but they were just 1mm thick

The decoupage was all cut out and added using the same sticky pads but cutting down where needed.

That was the card all put together – so next I trimmed the sentiment and stuck it to the scrap of gold mirri card with double sided tape, this was placed across the top left corner at an angle.

To embellish the card I used the quickie glue pen to edge the snowman and the fluffy furry parts of the hats and scarves then sprinkled with the glamour dust.

Glossy accented were used on the parts of the mouse and the bears

White with silver dots card candi was added to the corners of the white shaped layer and pale blue were added to the 4 outer corners and also the points of the largest shaped layer

And that's another finished card!!

What do you think to what you have seen so far?

See you tomorrow
