For My Sister

December 24, 2018

This Christmas card is one that I have wanted to make for a while, however, you need to know the person you are giving it to will take it in spirit it is intended.  This is the last Christmas card I am going to share with you using the template that Julie Burt shared on a Demonstrator only Facebook page.  She gave me permission to share this with you and you can find the template in the Fancy Fold card on my Free Tutorials page.  I used Basic Black to cut the base card and additional small card which fits on the left.  To decorate the front panel, I stamped the Buffalo Check background using Granny Apple Green ink onto Whisper White card.  I used my Basic Black marker to add the Black lines, which is such an easy thing to do and really takes this stamp to another dimension.  I cut a strip of Basic Black card using one of the Delicate Lace Thinlit Dies and attached it to the back of the Buffalo Check panel.  The whole piece is attached to another piece of Whisper White card and then to the front of the small folded card.  I stamped the lady from the You’ve Got Style stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the image using Dark Poppy Parade, Dark Daffodil Delight and Ivory Stampin’ Blends.  The image is cut using one of the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and attached to a Basic Black scalloped oval cut using the same dies.  To decorate the inside of the small card, I stamped the row of wine glasses from the Half Full stamp set across the bottom of Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the image using Dark Daffodil Delight and Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends.  The top left and bottom right corners of the card are decorated with the Buffalo Check Background, stamped in Granny Apple Green and once more with Basic Black lines drawn by hand.  The second panel in on the top and bottom of the card are stamped using three of the glasses from the image in the Half Full stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I inked the grape image from the label in the Half Full stamp set using a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and stamped in the top right hand corner of these panels. One image is coloured using Dark Daffodil Delight and Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends and the other using Dark Poppy Parade and Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  These images are attached to Granny Apple Green card before being attached to the card base.  The middle images on the top and bottom rows are stamped using the row of glasses and a greeting from the Half Full stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Again one image is coloured using the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and the other using Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend.  These panels are also attached to Granny Apple Green card before being attached to the card base.  The middle panel on the card has the holly image and another greeting from the Half Full stamp set.  The images are stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured using the Dark Poppy Parade and Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  This panel is also attached to Granny Apple Green card before being attached to the card base.  The large panel on the card has the wine bottle, glass (stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink) and grape images (inked using the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker) from the Half Full stamp set along with one of the greetings (also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink).  The images are coloured using the Dark Poppy Parade, Dark Granny Apple Green and Ivory Stampin’ Blends.

This was such a fun card to make.  Do you know someone who would appreciate this card?  Thank goodness my sister did!

Bye for now,

Kris
