Traditional Christmas Day 6

I think that we have now reached the time of year again where all card maker's are starting to get their heads round the fact that Christmas isn't too far away and cards need to be made.  What style will they opt for Traditional or the more contemporary style.  Hopefully this week I have covered the theme of Traditional.

The stamp I have used is one of Jane Gills 2016 collection.  The card has also used the distress inks and water brush.  Also its fairly quick to complete.

So here is this week card

What I used
Christmas Horn Stamp JGS467
Distress ink pads
Stickles red glitter glue
Red organza red ribbon
Cream card blank 7'' x 7''
Gold mirri card
Patterned Paper
Small piece of cream card

This is the process for completing the card

1  Take the 7'' x 7'' base card and fold in half.

2  Cut a piece of the patterned paper so that you have a 1/4'' border all the way round.

3  Cut a piece of gold mirri card smaller leaving a 1/2'' border.

4  Cut a smaller piece of patterned paper leaving 1/4'' border all round.

5  Cut a piece of gold mirri  card that leaves 1/8'' border 

6  Cut a piece of cream card that leaves a border of 1/8'' all round.

7  On to this last piece of cream card cut, stamp the image of the Christmas horn, and using the distress inks paint /watercolour the piece in.

8  Its time to edge and get the layers together.  Take the brown distress ink pad and run this down the all the sides of the patterned pieces and the stamped piece.

9  For edging the gold mirri card I used a brown alcohol marker and ran this down all the edges.

10 Go back to the base card and using a blending tool distress the edges that will show when the matts are applied.

11 Start to layer up the matts, until the stamped piece and with this one use the blending tool and apply the brown ink blending so that h edge is darker than the internal section.  Once done apply this to the card

12 The final steps are to make a multi looped bow and stick this to the card and lastly use the stickles glitter glue to add decoration to the corners of the card

There you have this weeks card, a quick and simple card with a vintage, traditional flavour.  I hope you like it and for more inspiration and ideas go to the Woodware blog.
