Up today, a Christmas card -
I used a Collage Glue stick to cover a piece of Grungeboard with Merriment paper, then ran it through the Vagabond machine using the Vintage Cabinet Card die. I needed the shape to be a bit smaller to fit on the card front so I cut off about 1/4" off each side. If I had planned better, I would have just made the card wider but that part was already done so I just went with it.
here. Once the oval was complete, I peeled off the backing and adhered it to the foundation.
I should mention the bow and Baubles before I finish up. The bow is made from the new Linen trimmings. It comes narrow in the package but can be stretched to create a bigger bow. See the difference in the band wrapped around the cabinet card and the bow itself? Two different sizes. It can also be stained whatever color you wish.
The holly is from the Sizzix decorative strip - Festive Greenery. I cut the leaves and scored the veins with the end of my Tonic scissors. The "berries" are a couple of sizes of pearl Baubles that have been colored with 3 different colors of Alcohol ink - butterscotch, red pepper, and mushroom. Once dry, I threaded the three Baubles onto a string to hold them tight, then glued them to the card with a bit of Glossy Accents.
On the inside, I used more Merriment paper stash (kids in the snow), pieces from the festive greenery die, a vial label and more Remnant Rubs.
that's it for today...
