This month the theme is Seasons’ Greetings. This month’s design team members showcase projects inspired by their favorite seasonal time of the year. We really hope that you will be inspired by all the amazing creations the Pals are sharing with you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
Here’s my card:
- The Night of Navy base measures 8-1/2 by 5-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 inches to form a tent fold.
- The Balmy Blue mat measures 4-1/8 by 5-3/8 inches.
- Next, I trimmed a piece of the Gnomes DSP (designer series paper) with the sweater print to 4 by 5-1/4 inches for the background of the front of the card. I also punched a 1-inch circle for the envelope seal.
- I used other patterns of the gnomes DSP to crop the gnome and mushroom using the gnomes dies. I fussy cut the fawn, rabbit, bird, and sleeping fox from another patterned gnomes DSP. Then, I trimmed a piece of the animal DSP to 6 inches by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope seal.
- I cropped the frame for the card from Night of Navy cardstock using the two largest deckled rectangle dies. The finished size is 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches.
- Finally, I trimmed the white cardstock for the inside to 4 by 5-1/4 inches.
What I Did:
- For some strange and unknown reason, I have kept my empty Wink of Stella pens. One of them did come in handy for this project. I squirted some clear Wink of Stella on a scrap piece of printer paper. Then, I picked up the liquid glitter with the empty Wink of Stella pen and tapped the pen against the top so I could splatter Wink of Stella on the background DSP. Wink of Stella doesn’t photograph well at all. However, in person, the sparkles definitely show up.
- I stamped the sentiment, also from the Kindest Gnomes stamp set, in Night of Navy on white cardstock. Then, I cropped it using the Stylish Shapes dies and put dimensionals underneath it.
- I added dimensionals under the frame so it looks like a shadow box. There are also dimensionals under the gnome, fox, and bird. I used multipurpose liquid glue to attach everything else.
- I stamped a holiday greeting on the white cardstock and adhered it to the inside of the card.
- With that, I’d finished this coordinated card, envelope, and envelope seal set.
