Timeless Elegance Romantic Card & Box

Timeless Elegance Romantic Card & Box

Well, it’s not everyday I go all romantic… but with this paper, how could I not?! It’s simply STUNNING!
So stunning, that I didn’t really want to cut it up…So to use it in it’s full glory I had to make it the focus of this card.

Trim the Timeless Elegance DSP to 5 1/4 inches square, and colour the roses in Cherry Cobbler ink using a sponge dauber.
Mount on a 5 1/2 inch square of Basic Black card with Snail Adhesive.
Tie a bow across the corner. I used some leftover Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen from the A/W 14 catalogue, which is unfortunately no longer available.
Mount on a 6×6 inch card blank in Cherry Cobbler using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I matched the layers on the inside of the card using Basic Black, and Very Vanilla in place of the DSP.

Now as for that adorable, teeny tiny box… I have had a tutorial for this Origami Box saved on Pinterest for months just waiting to give it a try.  I made it using a 6×6 piece of DSP, again from the Timeless Elegance series, and I think it turned out great! Perfect size for a piece of jewellery… Best bit? There’s no cutting, or gluing required! Just a pretty ribbon to keep it closed and finish it off!

Joyful Christmas Cards

I can’t believe we’re already in December! And WOW what a busy month I have ahead of me, as I’m sure we all do 🙂

I’ve been back in my crafting ‘spot’; sat on the living room floor in front of the fire! Nothing like getting toasty (even if a little uncomfortable!) and I came up with these little beauties…

Real Red, Cherry Cobbler & Early Espresso

I love colour, so I had to do a few different colour ways… decided to stick to 3 for this little project based on the amount of other stuff I was doing too 🙂

Surprisingly easy to put together… the fiddliest part was lining up the wreaths on the Big Shot, quickly got the hang of it though thanks to the little tabs.

Colours: Soft Sky, Tempting Turquoise & Tangerine Tango

If you want to make your own, here are the layers I used for mine 🙂

I cut A4 Whisper White cardstock in half, and folded in half again to creat the card blank.

Cut Silver Glimmer Paper to 3/4 x 41/2 inch strips, and cut those to points for the first layer, adhered with Mini Glue Dots

Coloured cardstock was 4 x 2 inches, cut to a ‘flag’ shape, and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals

The Wonderous Wreath Photopolymer stampset and Framelits Bundle was then used to create the lovely little wreaths on Whisper White cardstock, and cut using my Big Shot.  The wreaths were adhered with Stampin Dimensionals.

The sentiment I borrowed from the Holiday Home Stampset, and layered on top using Mini Glue Dots.

Then ‘Joy’ was cut from Silver Foil Paper from the Wondrous Wreath framelit set, and adhered with some mini Glue Dots.

The colour combinations I used are;

Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, and Early Espresso

Soft Sky, Tempting Turquoise, and Tangerine Tango

Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, and Rich Razzleberry

Colours: Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive & Rich Razzleberry
