Good morning, it’s Feature Day 2 for the LDRS Creative October/Christmas Release. I have a funky Christmas Wishes card for you! It kind of reminds me of looking out of a wonky window at a snowball fight! What do you think? Would love to hear from you in the comments below. For this card I have used the beautiful new Christmas Wishes Die w/Shadow and the Plaid 1 Cover Plate. There are three of the plaid cover plates that make beautiful patterns when layered. Another product I am using is the Christmas Sentiments Stack Stamp and Coordinating Dies. LDRS Creative has created a Shadow Stack Die that makes the perfect shadows for all the straight sentiment stack stamps! Let’s make a card.
First, I cut a top-folding A2 card base from Neenah Classic Crest, Solar White 110lb card stock. I cut a piece of green card stock to 4.25” x 5” for the border panel. The circle panel is 3.75” x 5”.
I used a 3 layer circle stencil which is no longer available but I am sure you have some sort of circle stencil in your stash. I used two different LDRS Creative inks, Kiss Me Red and Scarlet Rose.
Next I used the Plaid 1 Cover Plate and cut a piece of white card stock. I glued this to a piece of red card stock I had in my scraps. I placed it an angle onto the stenciled panel with Iquitos glue, allowed it to dry and cut off the excess.
On to the Christmas Wishes! First I used Kiss Me Red and Four Leaf Hybrid inks and blended onto a piece of scrap card stock that was approximately 2.5” x 5”. I blended the red on the top and green on the bottom. Blend lightly and build up your color. then I cut 4 Christmas Wishes from scraps of white card stock. I adhered them together with liquid glue. Once your ink blended panel is dry cut out another Christmas Wishes. Adhere this with liquid glue to the white die-cuts. Cut the shadow of the die from vellum and adhere to the die-cut sentiment. Use liquid glue to adhere this to the main panel you have assembled.
I had some of the Christmas Stack Sentiments already cut and mounted to a red card stock. I had used the Scarlet Rose Hybrid Ink for the sentiment. I added a piece of foam tape to the back and adhered this under the Christmas Wishes. Then I added some white enamel dots around.
Finally the entire panel was glued to the green card stock and then attached to the card base with your choice of adhesive. I used a double sided tape. What do you think? Kind of funky huh?
