Patridge in a Pear Tree

Hi Bloggers.

Here's another card that I made for John's shows on Thursday -

I used a paper from John's 12 Days of Christmas Paper Pad. I trimmed it down a little and edged it with Stonewashed Adirondack Dye Ink using a Smoothie. I picked a couple of the stamps from John's Partridge in a Pear Tree Stamp Set and randomly stamped them over the paper using Cobalt Archival.

I stamped the main design from the same stamp set onto Coconut White Card. I cut it out using Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics A and inked through the die with a little Stonewashed ink.

I cut the largest die out of Sue Wilson's Times Square Die Set.

I cut a couple of Sue's Classic Poinsettia Dies out of the same patterned paper and inked around the edges of the petals with Stonewashed ink. I shaped the petals using a Woodware Shape-it Tool on a Moulding Mat, stacked them up securing with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue and added a Brad. I cut a pair of Sue's Holly Sprays out of Dark Navy Card.

I assembled the card as shown adding a White 8mm Pearl to each corner and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

 Thanks for stopping by.

  12. Hi again Julia I have looked at the 'Twelve days of Christmas' pack of papers but it doesn't look as though this paper is in it? Am I wrong?

  20. Hi Julia
    Love this card. I like the idea of using the papers you've used in the background for your poinsettas. You and John must think alike as he's done this on his post today. Two great minds me thinks.

  30. Hi Julia

    Wonderful card. I love the colours. Using patterned papers for the poinsettia is a great idea and one I shall be using. I don't use patterned paper enough and have loads sitting around so will die cut with patterns more. Johns stamp designs have really impressed me too.

    Hugs, T x
