Book Style wrapper holding Christmas cards, tags and envelopes

Christmas projects

Thank you to all the lovely ladies who came to the Adult Education Christmas classes in November and December. They made a gorgeous Book fold box with pockets to hold the cards, tags and envelopes they made during the day.

There were 4 project tables set up and the ladies moved from table to table during the day making 2 cards and 2 tags at 3 of the tables and the Book style wrapper and pockets at the 4th table.

Here are the projects they made.

Star of Light – a happy accident

I just love this card, so happy with the way it turned out and to think it started off as a DVD wrapper that I accidentally scored in the wrong places………aaarrgh don’t you just hate when that happens!!! I was loath to throw the stamped piece away and started to cut it down, and it turned into this fab card.

1-dscf8456I saved two 4” by 4” panels which were stamped in Pool Party and Archival Basic Black ink on Whisper White cardstock using the Star of Light stamp set. I mounted one of the panels onto a layer of Basic Black cardstock then layered this piece onto a panel of Whisper White. The second stamped panel I cut into two 1 ¾ “pieces and added them onto the same black and white layers.

Using the Big Shot and the Starlight Framelit dies,  I die cut the detailed star 3 times from Whisper White cardstock and layered them, one on top of the other using Tombow to give some dimension. I added the smaller detailed star cut from Black Glimmer paper and topped the star with a White Perfect Accent coloured with a mint green promarker pen. The star was added to the square stamped panel with a dimensional.

1-dscf8458I added the panels to a 5½” by 5½” Whisper White card base folded as a modified ‘Z’ fold card. The backing dsp is from a retired pack called Perfectly Artistic. The sentiment was added in Archival Basic Black.

I made an envelope using the Perfectly Artistic dsp, the Envelope Punch Board and the super strong Tear and Tape.

This card is designed for my lovely Mum. Hope she likes it. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Come back soon

Star of Light Christmas Class

The November classes featured the gorgeous Star of Wonder stamp set and co-ordinating Starlight Thinlit Dies and non-traditional Christmas colours. I don’t know about you but I get a bit tired of red and green after a while and fancied something a little more modern and decided that Elegant Eggplant, Pool Party, Whisper White and Copper Foil would look amazing.

1-dscf8405The first card involved die cutting the solid star shape from a panel of Whisper White cardstock. This panel was then adhered to the Pool Party cardstock layer which was then added to an Elegant Eggplant card base. We then inset the detailed star die cut from Copper Foil and looking sensational especially when we added a large Basic Rhinestone to the centre. We added a sentiment from the same stamp set using Elegant Eggplant ink and called the card finished.

1-dscf8406For the second card we stamped the fantastic ‘swoosh’ stamp along with the smaller single star onto the Whisper White panel using Versamark Ink covered it with Copper Embossing Powder  then melted it using the Heat Tool and yes I did use the Embossing Buddy before stamping…… go me!  We then added random stars using Pool Party ink. The whole piece was added to a layer of Copper Foil with Tombow glue. This panel was then added to a Pool Party card base. We die cut the solid star from Elegant Eggplant cardstock and topped it with one of the smaller die-cut detailed Copper stars and added a Rhinestone to the centre before adhering it to the front of the card.

Top Tip – we die cut the detailed stars for all three projects from this layer, no one will know once the stamped panel is adhered over the top and it makes the best use of expensive, speciality cardstock.

1-dscf8407The DVD holder was based on a YouTube video by Tracey May – Bedlam and Butterflies –  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWzqbertbQs

We covered a 10¾” square of Whisper White cardstock in randomly stamped  ‘swoosh’s’ in Pool Party ink and the tiny trio of stars in Elegant Eggplant ink. The belly band was made using Elegant Eggplant cardstock with strip of Pool Party Stitched Satin Ribbon along the centre. I took the solid Whisper White star, saved from the first card and added a large detailed star cut from the Pool Party cardstock and topped it with a Copper Foil star and added the whole star to a label die cut from the Lots of Labels Framelit dies and used this to close the belly band as the sides don’t quite meet.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. Hope you like the projects I shared and that you will drop by again soon
