It’s that time again! Time to get cracking on Christmas cards! Today, I’m sharing a holiday card and ornament using products from Lawn Fawn.
To start, I first cut a piece of plaid paper from the perfectly plaid remix paper pack using the largest stitched rectangle die. Then, I cut the center piece using the reverse stitched scalloped circle window die set. This was repeated twice with two different plaid pattern papers. Next, I used an A2 white card base and used the scallop circle die to cut one side of the panel to create a window.
The inside of the card was ink blended using distress oxide inks in candied apple, salvaged patina and mermaid lagoon. Peppermint scrub added to the top for a deeper red.
Images from the following sets were colored and cut using the coordinating dies:
Mice on Ice: sentiment
Cheery Christmas: tree, ornaments, little bear hat, presents
Joy to the Woods: star for tree
Beary Happy Holidays: skating bear
Yeti or Not: scarf and hat on the bear, presents
Snow much fun: bear in the snow (for ornament)
Den Sweet Den: baby bear and big bear (inside of card)
To create the spinning bear, I added a thin piece of nylon sting and adhered it to the center of the skating bear die cut. The edges were then sandwiched between the plaid cardstock and card base. I used the second piece of plaid paper and adhered it to the inside of the card behind the window.
To create the snow bear ornament, I started with half the plastic ornament and found a coordinating circle die from my stash to use as the base/backer to the ornament. Next, I die cut a piece of white cardstock from the outside in stitched scalloped circle stackables die. Next, I placed the image of the bear from snow much fun on top of my scalloped circle and added various Pretty Pink Posh sequins to mimic sparkling snow. Then, I pushed everything to the front of the plastic ornament so that the sequins and bear would be in the front and the scalloped piece in the back of the ornament. The scalloped piece creates a wedge between the front and back of the ornament and keeps the larger sequins in front. Lastly, I used liquid glue to adhere the backer circle to ornament and I left everything to dry overnight.
