I have finally got around to taking some photos of some of the cards I got made up a few days ago
Its left me totally spoilt for choice regards which do I share first
So I opted for a favourite!
This is a kit by Card Buddy's called Seasons Joy Decoupaged OTT card kit and it was bought from www.cardmakingdownloads.com
The kit has the main card, decoupage, choice of inserts, envelope in 2 pieces...so good value.
So materials for this card I used ….
Heat mat to work on and protect your surface – I always use it...
A4 red card
Decoupage sheets and envelope
Double sided tape
Eazi Score Board & tool
Tonic 8” guillotine
Shaping tool from www.dimensionstamps.com
Foam shaping mat – stamping mat or even a mouse mat
To make the card ...
I sprayed the main card with crafters companion stick and stay then stuck that direct to the red card and cut it out.
This was then scored down the centre line and the insert was cut out and added with a small piece of double sided tape on the front and back along the score line.
I cut out all the decoupage and added it with small sticky pads – have to say there wasn't a great deal to cut out for the cow or the sentiment beneath it
So once they were done I decided to embellish – so the berries were covered with PVA then covered with red glitter, the fur on the hat covered with PVA and glamour dust and I used glossy accents on the hooves and nose!!!
The envelope pieces were cut out and double sided tape was placed on the fold lines then the 2 pieces were lined out and pressed together
This is my kind of card – every time I look at it I just have to smile
Its not the 1st subject that springs to mind when I think of cute christmas cards I have to say
What do you think to it then?
