Wintergreen Border.


Good morning friends, followers and visitors..

Sharing my post from  http://poppystamps.typepad.com/ blog

Today I am sharing a couple of cards,  White and  Cream both have a touch of colour used on them with distress ink Bundled Sage.


Easy style card to make, using one A4 card blank.. you need  card piece 8" x 5.3/4"..score and fold  this @ 2.1/4".
Next cut two card pieces  5.3/4" x 5 .3/4"  and two @ 2.1/4" x 5.3/4" I embossed these in an embossing folder, inked the edges..adhered to the card fronts, the smaller ones back and front so you are not looking at a plain card inside.



Next cut Poppystamps Wintergreen  Border, ink with green through the die before removing it, then ink the ivy leaves, attach sticky 3d foam tape where it will not show  adhere to the front panel.

I cut the Costello Ornament  Background, I find it easier to colour card pieces in green ink!  then die cut as I have the Lexington Ornament  and Merry Christmas Banner dies.. 
3d foam tape on the back of the ornament solid, adhere the outline ornament onto this.
Next cut the Bow and String die, cut away the lines on the side of the bows and use these as hangers for the bauble.

Finished with few pearls.
Tip! if you leave the 3d foam tape of these cards ..they are flat 5.3/4"  square cards for mailing.. bow is only shaped! no foam tape, is is glued in the centre only.

Hopefully I have now finished my Christmas card makes.. 

Thank you for stopping by Pam xxx
