Happy Friday everyone and welcome to Christmas in July Day 8. Today’s Christmas projects was created using the Paper & Ink Sketch #1. Here is Sketch #1 details:
And here is the card I created.
This card was so much fun to create! I really enjoyed making the poinsettia yesterday so I did the same again today. I started by creating a card base from Real Red Card Stock. I cut my card stock to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scoring and folding in the middle. I then followed the sketch from above. I cut my This Christmas Designer Series Paper to 5 1/4″ x 2″. I adhered this to the top with Snail Adhesive. I then cut and adhered the Gold Natural Trim to the bottom of the designer series paper as a border. Next I needed to create the poinsettia. I used the Festive Flower Punch to punch pieces out of Real Red Card Stock and Gold Foil Sheets. I used the Gold Foil Sheets for the leaves to the poinsettia and the stamens in the middle. I folded the leaf and flower pieces in half to give the flower character. I adhered them to each other using Multipurpose Liquid Glue a Pearl Basic Jewels. I used Snail Adhesive to adhere them to the page. I stamped the sentiment from the Wondrous Wreath Stamp Set with Jet Black StazOn Ink. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
