One of the Christmas card fronts I die cut last week ready to up cycle has a 'touch of the tartan' in the pile of wrapped gifts - and that was my starting point for this card:
- 5.5" x 4.25" white card blank, side opening
- the up cycled image from a shop bought kraft card sent by a friend last Christmas, die cut using a Presscut 'Oval Stitch Hole' die
- a panel of green tartan paper, which was a snippet already cut to almost the right size and tucked inside the back of the paper pad 'envelope pouch'. The paper pad is one of my very favourite LOTV pads called 'Classic Christmas' - and there's not much of it left in the pad!
- then a further poke around the same 'Classic Christmas' snippets pouch pad turned up a strip of red tartan paper - a fairly good match (IMHO) to the tartan wrapped gift in the image panel to pull it all together
- glued the strip of red tartan across the green tartan , snipped the really small overhang off, then glued it to the card front
- final step, after spending ages dithering over a possible sentiment and deciding against it, was to glue the oval image panel in place
A little hunt through my crafting downloads in the middle of writing this post turned up LOTV's 'Classic Christmas' papers in digital form - hooray! I bought them back in 2017, forward planning there! ☺
I've posted the results of our 'Christmas in July' themed Challenge #432 over on the Snippets Playground HERE.
Dudley Pupdate - a quiet week really. Dudley is certainly happier that the scorching temperatures have dropped somewhat. So are we! Having written that the other day, they seem to be climbing again!
