As promissed.. I've been working on a new little workshop for you all!! As Christmas will be here in a blink of an eye, I decided to do a Christmas card!!!!
Just like for my first workshop, I'd like to challenge you all to create a little card with this workshop and post it on your blog or somewhere else!! Don't forget to post a link to your card in the comments section of this post at latest on Saturday November 17th. I'll have my BF to pick a random winner for a little something on Sunday!!!
Needed: Piece of white cardstock in any size you want (distress the borders with ink or chalk), 5 strips of patterned paper (1 large one, 2 smaller ones and 2 tiny ones), 2 handcut stars made from patterned paper, a piece of floss, 1 safety pin, 1 stickpin, 1 little tag, 6 jewels, staples, Puffy Paint (or another kind of 3d paint), 3d foam tape, a hole puncher (or eyelet setter), if possible a sewing machine to stitch without thread on the borders of the cardstock.
Take the 2 handcut stars in front of you. Wrap the floss around one of the stars and add the safety pin with the tag and the stickpin to it. Distress the borders of both of the stars with ink or chalk.
- Take the 2 smaller strips of patterned paper in front of you and create a row of holes along the border of the paper by using a hole puncher (or eyelet setter).
- Tear the holes open to create a 'notepaper' look (just like it was just torn out of your notebook!), and distress the border and holes with ink/chalk. (I got this fun idea from Peggy!!)
Layer the strips of patterned paper and glue them to the middle of the card by starting with the smaller strips with holes, then add the biggest strip to it and end with the tiny strips on top of it. (distress all the edges of the strips if you like)
Add the 2 stars to the card (as shown)
Add the jewels to the upper right and the lower left part of the card (as shown). I added an extra jewel to the little tag, just to give it a finished look.
- Add little dots of puffy paint (or 3d paint) around the borders of the 2 stars
- Add 2 staples to the lower right part of the card.
YOUR CARD IS FINISHED NOW!I really hope my explanation makes any sense.. hehe.. I'm aware of the fact that my English isn't 100%...hehe... So if you have any questions left.. just contact me!!!!
