card details

  1. First, I cut, scored and folded my base. I am making a 5 x 7 card. You can use and size base, just adjust the size of of shaker card element.
  2. Next, pick a holiday sentiment. I used Happy Chrismas in red and green. Here, I used the Happy Day set.
  3. In this step, cut the Ugly Sweater paper(polka dot) with one of the Never Ending Rectangles.
  4. Next I cut 5 Reverse Scallop dies. Mine measure 2.5 x 4.875.
  5. In the next step, glue together 4 scallop pieces.
  6. Next, glue down the acetate to the back of the fifth panel only. You can trim the extra acetate from the sides.
  7. After this, I glued acetate and allowed it to dry. Adhere the additional 4 to the back.
  8. In the next step, add sequins to the back of the frame.
  9. Now, carefully add glue around the backside of the frames. Add your Ugly Sweater panel. If it is a bit big you can allow it to dry and trim it.
  1. Now, stamp, color and cut the cute little sweater and hat for the Quokka.
  2. It is now time for the Quokka, stamp, color and cut the image.
  3. Next, I glued the hat and sweater to the Quokka.
  4. For some bling, apply glitter gel to the puff on his cap and the polar bears hat.
  5. Next, I applied the scalloped frame to the polka dot panel.
  6. Add your Christmas Quokka to bottom corner.
  7. Now add foam tape to the back of the polka dot panel. Glue this to the 5 x 7 card base.
