Today I wanted to show you the second card everyone got to make at the Hot Chocolate Bar Holiday Catalogue Launch. If you missed the other card head back a post.
This card is made using the Christmas Gleaming Bundle but I matched it with the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper. It gives it a totally different look.
I made this card for a swap group I have been in too. I will show you the other cards I received in the swap in a later post.
So this is the card. It’s a half-fold card. That’s what I call it anyway.
The card was inspired by a card by Julie Davison. It was using a totally different stamp set and paper but I liked the idea.
To create the card, cut your card vertically in half giving you a long piece of card. Score that in half. Then I cut one section of it in half. It’s a very easy fold to do but something a little different.
I cut a length of the Wrapped in Paper and punched the end with the Banner Triple Punch. You can create it any length you like. The width though is 5cm (2″) so it can fit in the punch.
The ornament was stamped in Cherry Cobbler on white card and punched with the Gleaming Ornament Punch. It was then layered on a Cherry Cobbler circle cut with the Stitched Circles dies. The little flourishes were stamped in Shaded Spruce on the front of the card.
Here is the inside. Adhere a piece of White card inside and you will see this from the front which I stamped the holly on. The little dots are stamped in Crumb Cake around the holly.
It’s a fun card and very easy layout.
Here are a few cards using different prints from the Wrapped In Plaid paper.
Try it sometime yourself with maybe even a different stamp set.
