Christmas Card Challenge: Card 2
By: Shelly Newkirk, Artistic Guide

 

 

 

 

Finished Card Size: A2, 4.5" x 5.5"

Supplies:
Stamps: none
Inks:
Dark green ink (Vivid Vintage Green)
Paper:
White cardstock (Georgia Pacific)
Dark green cardstock (unknown)
Silver metallic cardstock (unknown)
DCWV Debbie Mumm Holiday Mat Stack     
Other Supplies:
Crafters Pick Ultimate Glue
Snowflake square die (Cuttlebug)
Wavy square dies (Cuttlebug)
A2 Dotted Swiss folder (Cuttlebug)
Snow flake punches (Punch Bunch)
        
Directions:
  1. Cuttlebug cut wavy squares, using dark green cardstock, cut 2 large and 1 on the next size down.
  2. Punch out two different larger snowflakes, and use one smaller snowflake from the Cuttlebug die.  Glue these to the dark green wavy squares.
  3. Use two shades of patterned green from the stack, cut three strips of lighter green and layer these over the darker green, trim dark green to a narrow border.
  4. Dry emboss white card stock in Cuttlebug A2 dotted Swiss folder, cut to 3.75" x 5".  Glue to dark green patterned paper and trim edges.  I use my Perfect Layers rulers to make this step fast, easy and accurate.  Now glue this to your card base.
  5. Now place your strips and snowflake squares about like I have them on the card.
  6. Did you notice my mistake????? See the little narrow strip of green at the bottom of the card? I cut the dotted Swiss too short.  I was not about to waste it so.......I just cut a narrow strip of dark green and glued it at the very bottom. 

    (And you never would have known if I hadn't told you, LOL!)
