Thanks to everyone who sent their good luck wishes or stopped by my Stampin’ Up! booth at the Seattle Creating Keepsakes Convention! It was fun to set up as a vendor this year though it turned out to be quite the eventful weekend with my entire family getting taken out suddenly by the stomach flu. But everyone made it through and life is getting back to normal – and I look forward to having some new crafting friends in the future from the show. 🙂
Well, today I thought I’d share a card we made in one of this year’s Christmas stamp-a-stacks. Each month we have been doing a different set of cards and this was one of the first.
The designer series paper makes it look a little like you are looking out the window to a snowy forest to me, do you see it?
Then we made a “wreath” to hang on the bottom part of the card. We started by taking some Cherry Cobbler baker’s twine and gluing the two ends together and under the Cherry Cobbler cardstock so that you have a loop on your card front. Then use a Stampin’ Dimensional to glue down the twine where the wreath will be – because you are using a foam dimensional, you can make the loop spreadout so that it looks kind of like a triangle…. does that make any sense? 🙂
Basically make your loop of bakers twine look like a teardrop and stick the dimensional across the fat base of your teardrop to hold it in place. Then cover up your dimensional with your stamped images from the Mixed Medley hostess set.
