Seasons Greetings

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card - an easel card that was another demo on Hochanda.

I used a 5" square Kraft Card Blank. I folded one side in half. I cut 2 pieces of Rich Red Card and 2 pieces of Milk Card to form my mats. I ran the mat for the lower section through the Grand Calibur with the Counterpane Mask. I inked around the edges with Crimson Kiss Colour Cloud using a Smoothie.

I cut the Couture Creations All Wrapped Up Die our of Emerald Card. I glued it to a piece of Rich Red Card and cut around using scissors.

I spread some Cosmic Shimmer Clear Texture Paste through one of the corners in the Christmas Corner Mask. I added Cosmic Shimmer Bronze Lustre Embossing Powder to the cones and then Cosmic Shimmer Golden Green Sparkle Embossing Powder to the leaves. I then heat set them. They bubble up a bit - it's really cool and is very tactile. I repeated the process in the opposite corner.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Peace on Earth Stamp Set using Vermillion Archival.

I cut the Couture Creations Cardinal Wreath out of Rich Red Card.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm Cream Pearls.

Had a great day yesterday at my workshop. On with my prep for Tuesday now.

Thanks for stopping by.

  9. I think the mask you used for the corners is really nice. It makes a great card.

    I am going to take for granted that you and all the crafters had another great and fun-filled session at YG yesterday. Can't wait for the days to get longer so I can make another one.

  26. Hi Julia

    I love how you used the mask. Timely reminder to be sensible by making some smaller cards... 40 odd 8 x 8's is a bit much!!! The little parcels are a lovely touch on the easel.

    Hugs, T x
