Julekort i marts

At det i går var den 24. marts, kom noget bag på mig. Tror bare, at den her måned er gået en del stærkere, end jeg var klar over… Den 24. betyder jo, at jeg skal være klar med endnu et julekort til OSH-bloggen. Heldigvis står jeg tidligt op, så jeg nåede at få lavet et kort til bloggen. Pyha!

Inspireret af flere forskellige teknikker på Online Card Classes Stretch Your Stamps kurser lavede jeg et kort, hvor jeg udstansede bogstaver i et stykke karton, satte glimmerpapir bagved og dekorerede lidt. Enkelt og hurtigt at få lavet men forhåbentlig alligevel et julet kort.

Naturligvis kune jeg bare have udstanset bogstaverne i glimmerpapiret og limet på forsiden, men jeg synes, der er noget fint over at bruge det negative område i stedet.

Til et projekt som dette er det super at have Sizzix’ magnetiske plade, fordi det holder ens dies på rette plads. Jeg bruger både den magnetiske plade og en lille smule washi tape for at være helt sikker på, at bogstaverne ikke flytter sig.

OCC Clean and Simple 4: Stitching

Day 4 at OCC Clean and Simple 4 inspired us to add texture to our cards in various ways and I was very inspired by Jennifer McGuire’s idea to stitch the card’s main image. I quickly settled on the idea to do a few different images and I first did an orange (which will turn up here eventually). I came up with the idea that I wanted to stitch a very simple snowman and it turns out that that is in fact relatively easy – and fun!

Once I had my stitching done, I knew I wanted to add some extra embellishments to the snowman. I seem to alway add some holly to my snowmen’s hats and a little heart is also a nice addition – both were diecut in thin felt. I struggled more with coming up with a sentiment but I eventually settled on a single word Christmas diecut from Simon Says Stamps Merry Christmas die. I diecut in silver glitterpaper and added it across the belly of the snowman using Tombow Mono Multi Glue.

Choosing what background to add the snowman to wasn’t easy either. I tried a few things but eventually settled on a very simple embossed stripe background. I used an Artemio background stamp and some clear embossing powder to create the tone on tone background.
