Hi there Fellow Crafters, Friends and Visitors, Jennifer back again,
Hope you are all well and feeling happy and managing to fit in some special crafting time. My day started out quite leisurely then whoa ! it suddenly changed to a bit of a manic day lols, but I have had a somewhat more peaceful evening.
The card I would like to share with you today is.....yes you guessed ....another Christmas card !! We only get to make Christmas cards once a year unlike birthday cards etc., so let's make the most of it. This card was made in August 2012 for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Crafts. So...let's get started shall we?
The base card is made from red cardstock and onto this matt a smaller piece of silver mirror card. Next take a slightly smaller piece of white card and emboss using the owls stencil. Colour around the edges of the white card with black soot distress powder and a blending tool. Matt this onto the base card.
Use some red card and the oblong die and cut and emboss it. Cut an oblong piece of black card to fit the centre of the red oblong. Lay the owl stencil over the black card and spread the metallic sparkle medium over it. Remove stencil and leave image to dry. When dry fix the black panel to the red oblong.
Using a die cutting machine, black card and the branch die, cut out and emboss three branches. Glue two of these behind the red oblong and glue the oblong to the base card.
On a small piece of black card, spread some silver sparkle medium through the dots on the snowflake embossable. When dry, cut out two triangles and put one in the top left and the other in the bottom right corners.
Break off a couple of tree branches from the third branch and glue to the bottom right corner just above the black triangle. Add a red ribbon bow on top of the branches. Cut out one set of silver owls, left over from when you trimmed down the owl embossed image. Glue them on top of the ribbon.
Punch out a circle from silver mirror card and screw it up ( backing will probably delaminate) we will use the top silver layer. Unfold and rub some black soot ink over it. Glue to the top of the card.
Spread a little silver metallic sparkle medium around the edges of the white embossed card with your finger.
Phew !!! well that is that....finished. Hope you like it. Take care until next time.
Crafty Hugs to you all,
Love Jennifer xxx
