I’m so surprised to be
sharing Peace This Christmas card number 4 with you.
It definitely wasn’t
part of a plan – it really just happened!
Yesterday, after I’d finished tidying
up after recording Sunday’s video, it was time for me to plan today’s card.
I saw the little pot on my
desk that still had several pieces that I’d fussy cut out last Sunday when I made
the first three cards in this series.
I started my card with a
base of Whisper White Cardstock (CS) with a layer of Cherry Cobbler CS.
adhered the two pieces together with Tombow.
It was a bit of a struggle as my bottle
was nearly empty – I’d already had two bottles I had to throw away during the
day and it looked as if there was going to be a third!
As I was planning a
plain looking image, I decided a patterned layer would be a good idea, so adhered it on top of the Cherry Cobbler layer!
My plan was to have a
sentiment and some of my fussy cut pieces on a Whisper White Square, turned at
I die cut a square of Whisper White CS using a Stitched Shape Square Framelits die and
also a slightly larger Cherry Cobbler square, die cut with a scalloped square
from the Layering Square Framelits Dies.
Using my Grid Pad as a
guide, I laid the stitched die cut as a diamond.
I chose the sentiment from the
Reason for the Season Stamp Set and inked it in Cherry Cobbler Ink.
I played with a few arrangements of the die cuts
and settled on the clean and simple layout you see here!
I adhered the two die
cuts in place with Tombow and then adhered the Whisper White square onto the
Cherry Cobbler Square.
I used Tombow to adhere the image directly onto the top
layer of the cardbase.
I still have more die cuts leftover – will there be number 5 tomorrow?
Next year is promising to be an exciting year for me already!
Yesterday afternoon, one of the ladies in my team asked if I’d do a Craft Retreat with her next year.
Do I breathe? Of course, I’d love to do one, so we’ve started our planning!
We were on the telphone for almost an hour yesterday afternoon covering the basics of what we both expect from a retreat, projects, hotels, and a million other topics that cropped up.
It’s going to be quite a challenge as we live a long way away from each other – about a four hour drive!
This is going to be so exciting – do watch out for developements as they happen!
That’s about it for today!
Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
