My favorite designer series paper in the Holiday catalog is Festive Farmhouse. I'm a sucker for plaid! And Cherry Cobbler! As I was trying to decide on a seat gift for my Bingo last week, I kept coming back to that paper. So, each person got 1/4 of a pack of Festive Farmhouse. I slipped it inot a bag and then needed to decorate. The bags I used go up about 2/3 of the way on the paper that is cut 6 x 12. They come from Clearbags, VL86, 6 7/16 x 8 1/4. You can get them at ClearBags.com. These bags are perfect for a 6 x 6 share. Here's my seat gift.
Please pardon the glare. I started with a Mossy Meadow circle cut using the Layering Circles Framelits. Run this through the Big Shot with the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Add this to the bag with dimensionals. The saying is from the Dashing Deer stamp set. Stamp on Whisper White with Cherry Cobbler ink. Punch this out with the 1 1/2 inch circle punch. Using the In the Woods Framelits Dies, cut the evergreen shapes in Whisper White. There is a larger tree and also a little smaller tree that cuts out some of the pine boughs. Starting at the bottom of the tree with cut outs, kind of roll out the bough. Do this all the way up. Glue the smaller tree in the center of the larger tree. Glue the tree to the background circle and the sentiment. Add a bow make from the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine to the top of the tree.
After all is said and done, that decoration is just too cute to throw away. Take it off slowly and use it on a card. Here's the card I made!
This card has a base of Mossy Meadow measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. The patterned paper is from the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper. It measures 4 1/8 x 5 3/8. This is larger that normally cut. I had a piece that was already that wide. If you are trying to get more cards, then use 4 x 5 1/4. You'll get more cards from your paper and the look is not that different.
For this card, I changed the sentiment. This one is from the Timeless Tidings stamp set. Everything else is the same. I did add some small snowflakes. They are cut using the Blizzard Thinlits and Whisper White card stock. I used the smaller ones. Be sure to save the others for other projects.
Here's the inside of the card. It's all from Timeless Tidings.
Here's both of the projects using the same focal point.
These projects ended up using quite a few of the new items from the Holiday catalog. Have you made your order yet? My product list below should help you. Order online here.
