So I am kicking off the week by using Core'dinations Seasonal Impressions cardstock to create a Christmas card. Each 12" x 12" embossed cardstock pack includes 20 sheets total, with the following holidays: Valentine, Christmas, Halloween, Fall, Spring and 4th of July. As you might imagine, I am using the paper with the Christmas words.
Back it with 1/2" wide Wonder Tape and adhere it to the card.
The crochet trim was very delicate so I didn't really want to sew in place. The narrow Wonder Tape was the perfect solution to avoid sewing.
For this one I used a Memo pin, Glossy Accents and flower from the Idea-ology Foliage set.
NOTE: The Idea-ology brand also has Festive Foliage that is a poinsettia shaped flower. I did not have this one in my stash but I suspect the card may look more "christmas-ie" if that was used.
here to add glitter with sticky embossing powder. I like to give it an extra little heat with the Heat tool after the glitter is on the metal flower. It seems to almost embed the glitter onto the metal flower.
I sanded a leaf from the same set and bent it just a bit.
I put all the pieces together on the card and then decided it needed a bit more of what I like...detail.
I cut a long piece of dyed cheese cloth and tied it around the flower pin.
Then took a leftover piece of a small Tattered Banner (seriously, it was a torn off scrap on my desk), wrapped it around a big pearl corsage pin and stuck it under the band just like I had done with the flower pin. I clipped a dovetail in the chitchat word "believe" and stuck it to the tattered banner. The word is only stuck down on the left side so it is almost like a double flag. I did add 1/2 of a pop-it dot under the tattered banner to keep it in place.
I will be back on Wednesday with another simple project using Core'dinations Seasonal Impressions cardstock. Until then...
