The cards I’m sharing with you today are the Make’n’Takes we made when we were in Thailand – using new products!
Photographs 1 – 2: this card uses products from the fabulous new Year of Cheer Suite.
The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is called Year of Cheer Specialty DSP, and is really gorgeous.
It’s Copper and Silver Foil on white. I suspect this may be the colour of the new Champagne Foil that’s available in the New catalogue.
The two stamps used for the sentiment are from the Cheers to the Year Stamp Set.
Behind the sentiment you can see a stunning Silver Foil Snowflake.
These come in a packet of twenty four – twelve in gold and twelve in silver. They are stunning!
Photographs 3 – 6: these three cards are the same design and feature three of the patterns in the Painted Autumn DSP.
This was created using the new Leaf Punch!
Photograph 7: These tags were made using the Merry Little Christmas DSP and the Merry Music Specialty DSP.
The black and white strip is a piece of the new 7/8″ Striped Ribbon which has a black strip running down both sides of the length of the ribbon.
We cut the side stripes off for this project.
The holly leaves were punched out using the Holly Berry Builder Punch that’s in the annual catalogue – brought forward from last year.
The cards in photographs 3 – 6 above were actually made by hubby – his first attempt at cardmaking.
On the Friday we were in Thailand, we went back into the Make’n’Take room as I wanted to see the swap boards which were ready to be seen.
I was chatting with Laura about the Make’nTakes, and told her how disappointed hubby was on Tuesday because he didn’t want to follow the script for the projects.
I said he had to, otherwise we might run out of items needed to complete all the projects!
Photographs 8 – 9: This is hubby’s creation!
Given that this was just the fourth card he’s made, I think he did an amazing job!
Hubby wanted to wrap the Baker’s Twine all around the card.
The problem was that it’s a single layer card, so I cut a slit down the fold of the card.
I wrapped the twine around until I was told to stop.
Obviously this means it’s visible from the inside, but that’s OK!
That’s it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
