Deck the Halls

September 28, 2016

I had a tiny strip of the patterned paper I used to create the pine branch Christmas tags (Christmas Tags 2.9) that I couldn’t bear to throw away. I used it to create this card.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details: I started with a white standard sized A2 card base. I attached my small strip of patterned paper to the bottom edge of the card base. Next I die cut a rectangular frame from some kraft card stock. I added some wood grain stamping to the frame for interest.

Using a pencil I carefully marked the inside edges of the frame on my card base. Using the markings as a guide I stamped the cluster of pine cones and pine branches directly on the card base. I only masked the pine cones. I used some second generation stamping to create a lighter green shade.  I added the sentiment next.

Before I adhered the frame, I added some light blue snowflakes to the edges of the card base. Then, I adhered the frame. I thought that the card was still missing something, so I colored the edges of the card base with a light blue colored pencil. I’m not sure that I love the results.  

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Deck the Halls and Woodgrain Backdrops

Dies Used: Lawn Fawn’s Small Stitched Rectangles

Ink: Memento Dew Drops in Bahama Blue, Pear Tart, Lady Bug, Rich Cocoa, and Cottage Ivy.

Hope you enjoyed the card
