Yesterday’s woven “bandage” card gets a Christmas makeover today and we swap ribbon for paper. The woven paper is made more of a feature by turning it into the “wrapping paper” of a present and then tying it with the wonderfully soft, Sweater Trim.
The papers are from a new mini stack, Festival of Prints (£6.25) in the Autumn/Winter catalogue. There are 48 sheets in the stack (4 each of 12 double sided designs) but they’re a much more manageable size for card making, 11.4cm x 16.5cm (4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″), so you won’t be stuck with loads left over after Christmas. That said, the patterns and colours will work year round, so that wouldn’t be a problem anyway.
This isn’t a great card for posting. Tying the Sweater Trim creates bulk and I think it would push this small square card into the Large Letter size, so please check before sending – better still, keep this one for hand delivery
The card base is a small square of Cherry Cobbler card, matted with Very Vanilla. Two different patterns from the Festival of Prints DSP Stack (126904) were woven together (please pop back tomorrow for a tutorial on how to do this). The sentiment from the Petite Pairs set (W122495 or C122497) was stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink onto Very Vanilla card, punched out with the Word Window (119857) and a hole punched in the end. Cherry Cobbler Sweater Trim (129938) was then tied around the woven square and the sentiment label tied on before creating the final bow. Finally, the woven square was popped up on the front of the card using dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by.
