Happy Christmas - parcel and bauble DL Kraft card - 
Day 328 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

It is now day 328 of my 366 day challenge and this time I have made this card using some Tonic Studios background paper, some peel off stickers and some Tattered Lace dies.

How I made this card:-

  • I first of all cut a panel of the "Bauble" background paper from the "Christmas Wishes" 8" paper pad from Tonic Studios - this measures 8cm x 18cm) and backed it on to a larger black panel. 
  • I then added a "Jagged Edged" border strip to the centre of this panel using Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue.
  • I stuck the whole panel on to the front of a DL Kraft card using a tape pen making sure that it was in the middle of the card.
  • I cut out the "flower" shaped die cut (from Tonic Studios) in white cardstock and whilst still in the die, coloured it using some "Orange/Red/Pink" dye based inks. 
  • I then added the "parcel" peel off sticker (from Craft Creations) and coloured it using "blue and orange" alcohol markers and, using foam pads, attached it to the border strip.
  • Finally, I cut out 2 oval picot edged panels (from Tattered Lace), one in black and the other in Kraft card, mat and layered them together using Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue and added the white/gold "Happy Christmas" peel off sticker to it and glued it to the bottom of the panel.
And there you are - a stylish and cheerful Christmas card which is suitable for all ages. It is quick and simple to make using a card using Tattered Lace dies, Tonic Studios backing papers and some Peel-off stickers,  and some inks. You can also buy it from my website here
