I am absolutely amazed with some of today’s photographs
because you can see the shimmer on the Shimmery White
Cardstock!! That’s something I’ve never achieved before,
and it’s sheer luck it happened today!
See the second photograph for the best example!
I decided to use my Stamparatus to line up where I wanted
to place the strings of lights. It was so much easier linking
two strings together – as I did for the two strings below the
ribbon – because I didn’t have my hands obstructing my view!
After I had stamped the first string, I cleaned the stamp, and
then moved the cardstock into a different position for the
second string. This was much easier than trying to
move the stamp each time.
I coloured all the bulbs using Real Red, Old Olive and
Shaded Spruce Marker Pens, and then I stamped the three
images using the same three colours but in inks.
I die cut the image using the third size Stitched Shape
Circle Framelit, and layered it onto a scalloped circle die cut
using the no.6 size Layering Scallop Circle Framelit.
I adhered the top layer of the card onto a layer of Real Red
Cardstock, and then adhered a one inch strip of a green
design from the All is Bright Designer Series Paper (DSP)
Pack across the centre of the card.
I then added a strip of Real Red Cotton Ribbon across the
strip of DSP, and then a strip of narrow Whisper White Sheer
Ribbon, above and below the Real Red Ribbon. I applied
some fine tip glue to each of the light bulbs which has
given them all an amazing shine.
I finished the front of the Shaded Spruce card by adding a
row of Real Red Rhinestones across the Real Red
Ribbon and then three more on the sentiment.
To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped a string of
lights across the botton right hand corner of another
Shimmery White Cardstock, and painted it in
the same style as the front.
That’s it from me today. I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing
today’s project. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
