Today’s video shows how I made a card similar to the poinsettia wreath card I shared last week. I had fully intended the card to be the same but I wanted to use a different green. I used Call Me Clover for the first card. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a ribbon in Granny Apple Green. I decided to use just the red ribbon on its own, but then I adhered the two layers to the card base before adhering the ribbon! I used some Granny Apple Green Cardstock instead! Grrr! Never mind! Onwards and upwards!
The main reason for making the video was to show how I used two masks, and how I used four masks. If you have the patience to cut four Post-it masks, and you’re making more than one card, this is the easiest way for this technique. However, If you’re only planning one card, two masks are ample. I love the Snowflake Trinkets I have used on this card, but I like to enhance it by adding one of our large Rhinestones in the centre to cover the smaller one that’s already there! In the video I stamped, coloured, and fussy cut two robins – one for the front and one for inside. I could have stamped the second robin directly onto the Whisper White CS layer. I preferred to do an individual robin, even though it meant fussy-cutting, because if I messed it up, I’d only be wasting a small scrap of cardstock!
That’s all I have for today. I’m about to get myself off to church to see the children present their Nativity! I wish you a very blessed Sunday, and I look forward to being back with you tomorrow. In the meantime, happy crafting.
