A Christmas Hostess Gift

November 22, 2011


Last weekend I held a workshop for a lovely lady and her friends (Hi Linda).  The workshop focused on using our Stampin’ Around Wheels, Heat & Stick powder and also using the Designer Frames Embossing Folders.

I used my favourite box pattern (Gwen’s Quick Box which you can find at the Three Sisters Blog) and added 4 cards.  Now I thought it appropriate at this time of year to make Christmas Cards and I used one of our wheels in keeping with the theme of the workshop.  The colours used are Early Expresso, Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White.

The base card is Early Expresso card stock and I have added a layer of Whisper White card stock which has been embossed using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.

I used Cherry Cobbler ink and the Sassy Sparkles Jumbo Wheel to cover another piece of Whisper White card stock.  I punched one long edge of a narrow piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock using the Eyelet Edge Border Punch attached this behind the wheeled panel, wrapped it with Old Olive 1/8″ Taffeta ribbon and tied a knot.  This piece was then attached to the card front.  I embossed a piece of Early Expresso card stock using the “rectangle” Designer Frame Embossing Folder and then cut the frame out.  I stamped the greeting from the Word Play stampset onto Whisper White card stock and attached it inside the rectangle frame.  The greeting was attached to the card front using dimensionals.

The box is decorated in a simalar fashion to the card on both the front and the back.

I love making my Hostess something that reflects the theme of the workshop.  We had a lovely afternoon paper crafting and I will pop in tomorrow and show you the card that I demonstrated.

Bye for now, Kris.

    So festive! The designer frame is a great accent to your card.
