Telescoping Card

September 12, 2013

I made this Christmas Card after seeing one on Pinterest by Julie Davison.  It gave me the perfect opportunity to try out my Circles Collection Framelit Dies.032

I used the Scallop Circle from the Circles Collection Framelits Dies to cut Cherry Cobbler Card and then the largest circle to cut a piece of Whisper White card.  I stamped the Whisper White card with the tree from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set using Old Olive ink.  The greeting from the More Merry Messages stamp set is stamped using Cherry Cobbler ink.  The stamped piece is attached to the Cherry Cobbler scallop circle.  I cut Old Olive card with the Circle Framelit Die the same size as the Whisper White card and the Polka Dot Paper from the Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack using the Circle Framelit Die one size smaller.  I attached the Designer Series Paper to the Old Olive circle. 028 I lined up the Old Olive circle with the stamped Circle and pierced a hole in the top and inserted a Silver Mini Brad.  If my Polka Dot circle had an image I would have made sure that the image was upside down when I lined them up. 029 Next I cut Cherry Cobbler card with the same size Circles Collection Framelit Die as the Polka Dot Designer Series Paper and Whisper White card using the Circles Collection Framelit Die one size smaller.  Once again I attached the Whisper White card to the Cherry Cobbler card.  I stamped the 2nd largest snowflake from the Festive Flurry stamp set onto Whisper White card using Cherry Cobbler ink and cut it out using the matching  Festive Flurry Framelit Die.  I attached the snowflake to the centre of the Whisper White card and lined it up with the Polka Dot Designer Series Paper.  I pierced a hole through the top of the snowflake and the Designer Series Paper and inserted a Silver Mini Brad.  You need to make sure that the bottom piece is out of the way when you do this and that the image panel is upside down (didn’t matter in the case of the snowflake).  031I added small Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the remaining points on the snowflake and small Pearl Basic Jewels to the centres of the small flowers and also one large Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the snowflake centre.

033This was such a fun card to make and looks so cute, don’t you think?  There is a great tutorial for Telescoping Cards at Splitcoast Stampers.
