Hey everyone! Happy Thursday! I wanted to share another “made from all scraps” card, this time using the Signs of Santa Bundle. This has been a very popular set in this year’s Holiday Catalog and is just now back in stock. Here are the measurements to today’s card:
- Card base in Early Espresso cardstock cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Balmy Blue cardstock cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″
- Santa’s Workshop Specialty DSP cut at 2″ x 4″ and 1″ x 4″ 1/4″
- Whisper White cardstock cut at 1″ x 3″ and 4 1/4″ x 3 1/2″
When I was cutting this adorable DSP for a prior project I saw this piece that had all the elves and just fell in love with it. The little dots in the pattern are Balmy Blue and the rocking horse has some Early Espresso, so since I love putting blues and browns together, I knew this was going to work. I added the DSP layer to the Balmy Blue, then added a piece of that new Stripped Burlap Trim and then adhered it to the card front. One of the things that I like about this set is that you can cut some of the images in the DSP out with the coordinating framelits. Easy peasy!! So I cut out Santa and added him to the top with dimensionals. Next I took the Whisper White, stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso ink and flagged the end using the Banner Trip Punch. I adhered it to the trim with Mini Glue Dots and added some of the Red Rhinestones. Next I added the strip of the DSP to the side of the Whisper White layer that I was using on the inside, stamped the sentiment and adhered down. Here’s a look at the inside:
Ya know, I’m thinking creating cards from scraps is much easier then starting with full size pieces! 🙂 I also like that this card isn’t such a traditional color palette too. I like how it turned out, how about you? If you would like to order any of the items shown today, just head over to my online store.
