For this card, I pulled out my Pine Feather cardstock, which doesn’t get nearly enough love!
For a little Christmassy pizzazz, I die cut a bow, and holly leaves which I stamped with the bough images from Bells & Boughs. This added much needed texture – otherwise they looked too flat and boring!
Now for a different technique using the quatrefoil die…this one taps into the tri-fold card trend (note: I totally just made that up. I have no clue if tri-fold cards are a trend.)
Here’s a peek at the finished product:
Here’s how these cards came together:
-start with a 5 1/2″ x 81/2″ piece of cardstock and score from left to right at: 1/8″ and 4.375″ (which is just 4 1/4″ plus another 1/8″)
-you’ll also need to die cut the quatrefoil pattern and back it with a piece of acetate cardstock (which you can’t see here…but it’s there!)
– next, adhere the edge quatrefoil/acetate layer to the 1/8″ fold –
this will create the front of the tri-fold card
-the finished card will have a cool acetate front with an inside where you can write a message without having it show through the clear card front.
I finished off the cards by using the holly die cuts and simple sentiments from a few PTI holiday sets
Okee dokee artichokies – that’s it for me and my mediocre photography! Thanks for stopping by!
