I hope you’ve had a great weekend.
My class on Saturday
went really well.
The thing I like most about my classes is that it’s just like having a few friends round for a bit of crafting, chatter
and a giggle or two!
All the ladies were exceptionally pleased
with this project, with all of them being very surprised at how easy it
I’d seen this design
on Pinterest and found several videos on YouTube.
I think this is a
fabulous design, but I wanted my own design for my class.
In class we used Wild Wasabi
as our accent colour, and for the card I made yesterday, I changed to
started by stamping one of the sentiments from the stamp set, towards
the bottom of the top layer.
I used my Real Red and Wild Wasabi Marker Pens to
ink the stamp.
I used the long branches of holly, one towards the top left hand corner,
and one to the bottom right hand corner.
I used Wld Wasabi Ink, first generation stamping for
the leaves outlines, and then Wild Wasabi Ink stamped off once for the
lined the letters up on my Magnetic Platform on my Big Shot, and used a
ruler to gently push them into a straight line.
When I was happy, I put
the second cutting mat on top and cranked it through.
I removed the die
cuts from the dies and also kept the centre of the O.
Next I put the top
layer into the Softly Falling Embossing Folder, and carefully put the
centre of the O, inside the O in the embossing folder.
Next I started to
put my card together by adhering the top layer onto the Real Red CS layer.
Using my tweezers I placed the letter O inside the die cut O.

After applying some Tombow to the
inside of the centre of the O, I adhered it on to the red layer placing
it very carefully into the centre of the O!
Then I removed the O die
cut, and applied some of our Foam Adhesive Strips on the backs of all
|Night in Bethlehem in Elegant Eggplant and So Saffron|
These strips are twice as high as the Dimensionals and are
absolutely great for this technique!
know there are plenty of videos on YouTube demonstrating how this
technique is done, buut I’ll be making my own so I can share what I have
If you haven’t tried this technique, I certainly recommend giving it a try, not just for Christmas but birthday’s, too.
As long as the recipient has a short name, how easy to personalise a card, or maybe use Mum, Dad, Love, etc.
If you want to use a longer name or word, all you need to do is to make a bigger card!
That’s it from me today. I hope you have a great week, and until tomorrow, happy crafting!
