Had a great day yesterday at Phill's Martin's Sheffield Store - it was lovely to see so many of Phill's customers. Hands are now clean by the way!
I have a pop-out card to share with you today -
A4 Coconut White Card. I scored both of them on a scoreboard to Half Fold A4. One of them I scored along the A4 Gatefold lines on both sides. I trimmed both pieces to 6 1/2" tall.
When making a pop-out card, it's easiest to decorate the outside and the inside pieces separately before assembly. I've used Phill Martin's Snowflake 8 x 8 Paper Pad throughout.
So, let's look at the inside first -
I used the largest die from the Justrite Snowflake and Tags Dies from the centre along the middle fold. I positioned the die slightly closer to the top edge of the card.
I stamped a little motif from the Justrite Large Oval Christmas Wishes Stamp Set in the 4 corners of the inner section using Phill Martin CS Chic Aubergine Colour Cloud applied with a Smoothie.
Justrite Hope Oval Frame Dies.
Purple Dazzler. This completed decoration of the inner piece.
CS Glue along the 2 long edges only - the paper has to be free to move. I left it folded and added it to the fold of the Coconut White Card and then closed the card over it. When you open it up, you will see a gap at the fold between the paper and the card. This is correct - it needs to be there so that the paper folds correctly when the card is closed and doesn't bunch up (hope that makes sense).
Now to the front of the card. I dusted a piece of patterned paper from Phill's Paper Pad with an Anti-Static Pad and stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Inside and Outside Christmas Sentiments Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS True White Detail Embossing Powder. I matted the paper onto another paper, using the plain side.
8mm White Pearl to the centre.
Single White Pearl Strips around the edges of my front panel.
I stamped the smaller of the poinsettias from the Justrite Multi-Step Poinsettia Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Phill Martin CS Chic Aubergine Colour Cloud applied using a Smoothie. I stamped the veins and the centres using Watering Can Archival. I used the Justrite Multi-Step Poinsettia Dies to cut the flower and centre out. I cut a pair of leaves out of Coconut White Card using Sue Wilson's Pine Twig Dies.
