I have three projects to share today. Here is how I created these projects.....
Fancy Fold Ornament Card...
Sponge the edges of the kraft card stock pieces with Memento Rich Cocoa.
5" x 7 1/2" scored at 5"
4" x 8" scored at 4"
Square Shaker Frame DIE002-Z
Mini Rectangle Tags 2 DIE014-J
Stamp Delicate Snowflakes F6602 on the card base with Memento Rich Cocoa.
Sponge the edges of 3 Vintage Ornament DIE032-J, 4 gable decorations from the Brick HouseDIE119-Z, the label from the Mini Rectangle Tags 2 DIE014-J
and a 4 15/16" x 4 x 15/16" piece of card stock with Memento Teal Zeal.
Stamp Delicate Snowflakes F6602 with Memento Teal Zeal on the ornaments. I stamped off on scratch paper first for a softer blue. Adhere the Square Shaker Frame DIE002-Z to your blue square.
Adhere one full doily to the inside of the card base. Cut another doily in half and adhere one half to the front of the card base on the 2 1/2" flap. Save the other half doily for another project.
Adhere the blue square to the front of the 4" x 8" piece. Open the card base and adhere it over the center of the full doily.
Score the down the center of each Vintage Ornament DIE032-J.
Fold along the score lines and stack/adhere them on top of each other (only putting your glue on the outside of your ornaments).
It should look like this after adhering.
Adhere the ornament to the center of the shaker frame and the Gable decorations to the corners. Stamp Joy from the Deck The Halls CL484 with Memento Rich Cocoa and attach it to the tag. Add a strong adhesive (I used score tape) and attach the tag to the edge of the card base. This is now the closure for your card.
I added a snowflake from the Snowflake DIE024-X,
to the center ornament as well as some string pearls and tinsel. Added some self adhesive pearls rhinestones to finish the front off.
Last but not least I stamped Tapestry Ornament E8824 on the center of the flap that you see when the card opens in Rich Cocoa. This looks more complicated than it is. The ladies at our Pampered Crafters Retreat loved making this card.
