Our challenge this month is to create three samples using new items from our catalogs. And I had such fun! I decided to focus on the new Holiday Catalog, and I have one project for each holiday.
What's first? Why Halloween, of course!
Then it was time to think about Thanksgiving:
This card needs little embellishing, so I just stamped the sentiment from Among the Branches using three ink colors, Crushed Curry, Mossy Meadow and Tangelo Twist:
And finally, Christmas:
Next comes a piece of Season of Cheer Designer Series Paper. This piece is 5-1/4" x 8", folded in half and looking like a traditional card, but attached to the Mossy Meadow base. I cut an oval in the front, using Oval Framelits.
Now opening this layer gives you the full effect:
And I don't want to forget the sensational Expressions Natural Elements on the front:
I "pounced" Versamark ink all over the element, then heat embossed it using Gold Embossing Powder. The process was repeated twice, resulting in a very shiny embellishment. I used the wonderful new Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere it permanently to the front of my card.
Well that's it for me! Thanks so much for visiting; I'll have a video on how to make this double-fold card next week, so please come back.
And now go see what Heidi has in store! She is our fearless leader and always has the best projects! Thanks for stopping by!
