For my Grandchildren

December 20, 2018

When it comes to making cards for my grandchildren, I go the extra mile and make them something special.  They love receiving cards from me and always like it when it “does something”, pop, slide, stand up!  Anyway this year I created two each of three different cards.  Today I will share the first one with you.  This card has a base of Cherry Cobbler and uses the template which you can find under Fancy Fold card on my Free Tutorials Page.  I cut four small pieces of Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper and attached them to the card base.  I stamped the tree trunk image from the Winter Woods stamp set onto Whisper White card using Gray Granite ink.  I embossed the stamped pieces with the Corrugated Dynamic Embossing Folder, attached them to Gray Granite card and then the card base.  I stamped the small branch image from the Winter Woods stamp set onto Whisper White card using Mossy Meadow ink several times.  I stamped the pine cone image onto Whisper White card using Gray Granite card and cut them out using the co-ordinating In the Woods Framlites Die.  The pine cone image is attached over the ends of the stamped branches.  The stamped card is attached to Gray Granite card and then the card base.  For the large panel on the right hand side of the card, I cut a piece of the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series paper and stamped “Christmas” from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set using Cherry Cobbler ink.  I cut “Merry” from Cherry Cobbler card using the Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies.

To decorate the front of the small folding card, I stamped the multiple tree image from the Winter Woods stamp set using Mossy Meadow ink.  I stamped the single tree image twice onto Whisper White card using Mossy Meadow ink.  I cut out one complete tree and then one detailed tree using the In the Woods Framelits Die.  I attached the complete tree over the stamped trees and then attached the detailed tree over the top.  To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the small branch image using Mossy Meadow ink.  I stamped and cut out one pine cone as before and attached it over the ends of the stamped branches.

I love the way this card turned out and I am sure so will the granddaughters who receive it.

Bye for now,

Kris
