Robins on branches - C6 gatefold cream Christmas card - Day 349 of my 366 day challenge

Robins on branches - C6 gatefold cream Christmas card - 
Day 349 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

Only 17 days left to the 366 day challenge and I have once again used some "Peel off stickers" to make this C6 gatefold Christmas card.

Robins on branches - C6 gatefold cream Christmas card

How I made this card:-
    Robins on branches - C6 gatefold cream Christmas card inside
  • I first of all cut 2 "pentagons" out in white card and coloured them in using some "Blue" distress/pigment inks leaving some white in the middle to give it some lighter shading.
  • I then cut out 2 label tags (approximately 8.5x6.5cm) in blue card which i felt coordinated well with the pentagons.
  • Before sticking the topper on the tags, I added the "Robins" peel off stickers to each of them and coloured them in using "Brown, Red and Green" alcohol markers.
  • I used Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue to attach them to each of the label tags and placed them on the gatefold panels so that they were "looking" at each other...
  • I then once again used my favourite coloured Nuvo drops "Caribbean Ocean" to each of the points of the pentagons.
  • Finally, I stamped the inside of the card with the sentiment "Christmas Wishes" from the Christmas sentiments set from Creative Expressions (Phill Martin).
And there you are - a really cheerful "Christmas" C6 gatefold card! It is simple to make as it just used a few peel off stickers, some alcohol markers and a stamp!
