For this card,
I used The Stamps Of Life ornaments4Christmas
and the ornament dies
with some papers and inks I already had in my craft room.
First, I cut white card stock into a 2 1/2x12 in strip and used my score board to score the strip ever 1 5/8in. Then, I accordion folded along the score lines. This gave me way more than I needed, so, I cut the strip to where there was only 3 folds making it 4 layers of paper.
With the largest ornament die, I lined it up on the folded card stock where it looked centered.
This is where tape comes in good.
Ran it through my WONDERFUL BigShot and got this...
I also cut a single ornament to use as a mask to cover the red one and make it look like it is in the front and stamped one on each side in yellow then blue then the black outlines.
I cut the tops out of Recollections foul paper...
So, the red ornament has no top because I trimmed the top off and filled it in with black ink because I wanted it to be on it's side. For this, I cut out another ornament and stamped it in red with the black outline and put Zots on the back of it. I also added the tops with Zots.
Very tiny Zots.
Isn't that cute? I masked the and sign and put it on the other side of joy
This is where I found out the yellow ornament was going to be on it's side because when I trimmed it to fit, the top was cut off.
The next thing I did was spend about 20 minutes trying to find what paper I wanted to use. That has always been the time sucker for me. I found some green textured paper for the background and some shinny red paper to make a ribbon strip 1/4in. wide. I took an extra 2in. folded it in half, fish taled it, and added it with a brad.
and used the snow flake stamp to do the background only to find it was too big for the card face.
So, I did again, trimmed it, matted it in black,
and put Christmas Wishes on the inside of the card.
