Magic & Wonder

December 25, 2021

Can you believe it? Today is Christmas Day, the most wonderful day of the year. I wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year. A little different for us this year as my two girls are spending Christmas elsewhere, so it will just be Mum & Dad, my sister, neice, great nephew and Ron & I. I hope that all of you have a wonderful day celebrating with those you love. Instead of a scrap page, today I am sharing with you the cards I made for each of my four granddaughters for Christmas this year. The vintage style was inspired by a card from a tutorial that I purchased from Create with Connie & Mary but the layout was inspired by this card I found on Pinterest by Julianne Richards. I created the first card using the colours that were used in Connie & Mary’s tutorial. I sponged the edges of Very Vanilla card using a sponge dauber and Soft Suede ink and stamped the greeting from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set onto the top right hand corner using the same ink.

I attached the panel to Soft Suede card and then Blushing Bride scored and folded card. I stamped two large and one medium flowers from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set onto Blushing Bride card using Soft Suede ink. I cut out the flowers using the co-ordinating Poinsettia Die. I sponged a little Soft Suede ink into the centre of each of the flowers before using my bone folder to add curl the leaves. I used a Glue Dot to attach the layers together and then added mini dimensionals underneath each of the curled petals. I stamped two large leaves onto Soft Suede card using Soft Suede ink. I cut them out using the co-ordinating Poinsettia Die and sponged a little Soft Suede ink onto the lower part of the leaf.

I stamped the berry image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set twice onto Blushing Bride card using Soft Suede ink. I stamped the berry fill image onto the stems using Soft Suede ink as well. I cut out the berry images using the co-ordinating Poinsettia Die. I also cut two sets of berries/leaves from Mint Macaron card using the Poinsettia Die. I layered the flowers and leaves onto the lower left hand corner of the sponged Very Vanilla card. Lastly I added three Champagne Rhinestones to the centre of the flower.

To decorate the inside of the card I sponged Soft Suede ink around the edges of Very Vanilla card before attaching the panel to Soft Suede card. I stamped and die cut, one medium and one small flower, two small leaves, one berry image and one mint macaraon berry/leaf image. The flowers and leaves are layered onto the lower left hand corner of the sponged Very Vanilla card.

When I am creating a card, like these, I only adhere the flowers in the very centre, so that I can layer the leaves underneath the outer edges of the flowers. Once I have everything in the right place, I carefully remove the backing from the mini dimensionals and adhere them to the card. For the inside of the card, I just add a little liquid glue underneath the petals to secure them to the card base.

I created three more cards using Petal Pink, Highland Heather and Fresh Freesia for the flowers and card bases. I love them all and hope that my granddaughters do too.

Bye for now,

Kris
