The Heart of Christmas - Handmade Christmas Inspiration 2017 - Week 1



Hi everyone, for todays card I used Tranquil Tide card stock for the base, front of the card is Vanilla Card stock and I ran this through the big shot using Softly Falling Textured folder, I cut 3 Daisy's out with the Daisy Punch using Tranquil Tide & Cherry Cobbler card stock and Vellum, I off centred each Daisy so you can see each colour and curled the petals downward using a bone folder then popped a dimensional under the daisy and used the large Gold Faceted Gem on top.  The Happy sentiment I cut out of Cherry Cobbler card stock using the Happy Birthday Thinlet and just cut them apart and used Tombow liquid glue to adhere to the card.  I glued the Very Vanilla Lace trim on top of the Burlap ribbon for a bit of texture and wrapped around the card sides then added dimensional on the back, the Christmas sentiment which is from the Oh What Fun Stamp set, I used the 'Happy Christmas' stamp and just inked the 'Christmas' with Cherry Cobbler ink pad, the little bells are also from the same set.  I used cherry Cobbler ink pad and Tranquil Tide marker then punched it out using the Label Punch.  The bell I inked with Cherry Cobbler and wiped the inside with a baby wipe and then used the Tranquil Tide marker for inside of bell, cutting the bell out with the Bell Punch and finishing of with a small bow using the Gold 1/8th ribbon. 
If you have any questions about this card please feel free to ask.  Hope you enjoyed todays card.
