Rød og guld jul


Jeg havde dette julekort med i sidste års jule-særudgave af Ett Trykk. Udfordringen var at lave julekort i bestemte farver, og dette kort er altså rødt. Jeg stemplede baggrunden med ordet Christmas fra Winnie & Walters The Big, The Bold and Merry. Derefter samlede jeg en sandwich af glimmerkarton, hvidt karton og det stemplede karton, og syede dem sammen, inden jeg monterede dem på forsiden af et rødt kort.

Kortets dekoration er også kortets hilsen, og det består af et udstanset “Merry” (også fra Winnie & Walter), et banner udstanset i vellum og stemplet med “Christmas” (fra Lawn Fawns Joy to the Woods) samt lidt pailetter. Ordet merry udstansede jeg flere gange i hvidt karton og en enkelt gang i guld glimmerkarton. Jeg limede dem alle ovenpå hinanden for at give ordet lidt mere dimension.

Caroline 4 år

Keeping with traditions, I’ve made a shaped card for Line’s friend Helle’s daughter who turns four today. This year I went with a balloon because balloons are good plain fun!

Of course I had to add Caroline’s name and age to the card so I decided to do a strip across the bottom of the balloon. In this strip I die cut her name and age using Sizzix’ Alphanumeric die set which is brilliant because you can die cut the entire name in one go. Love this alphabet set. In order to make sure that the letters could be seen against the bigger balloons pattern, I mounted some vellum behind the strip with the letters.

When I’d mounted balloons and clouds on the card I still felt it needed something. This led me to add two small birds that I quickly coloured in using PrismaColor pencils.

I added some string to the bottom of the smaller balloons and glued down the loops so they would stay in place over time. And obviously, I had to add some bling to this rather girly card. Now all that is left is to ponder which shape I might chose next year…
