Not long back from Glasgow ... the craft show was busy, I've spent a small fortune, I'm exhausted and my feet are killing me ... I had a great time :) Understandably, this is going to be a very short post - just the latest in the Christmas Alphabet series of cards I'm working on - I for Icicles.
As you can see, I've used elements from a Joanna Sheen CD Collection - the Thomas Kinkade Christmas Selection. In this particular painting the house and shed is dripping with icicles so perfect for my theme. The ribbon is threaded through a slit cut in the crease of the card, which has the bonus of ensuring the insert stays beautifully in place when you open up the card.
The insert comes from the same disc and the greeting is computer generated.
I printed the insert twice, trimmed it down to produce a topper for the back of the card.
This was a super easy card to make. Here's a list of materials used.
- Base: White cardstock cut to form an A6 (4"x5.75") tent card
- Matting: Pale blue card (recycled from a commercially produced card received last Christmas) and a snippet of silver holographic card
- Toppers & Insert: Thomas Kinkade Collection by Joanna Sheen - Disc 3, Christmas Selection - greeting computer generated
- Stamp: Docraft’s - free with magazine; VersaMark; Sheena WOW! EP Blueberry Regular
- Embellishments: Blue stitched grosgrain ribbon, punched holographic snowflakes, and iridescent glitter - all from stash
That's me done for this evening - I'll be back tomorrow to show you my haul from the craft show though. In the meantime,
