Happy Wednesday! I had such fun creating the ornament card that I shared on Monday, that today I’m sharing another ornament card! If you missed Monday’s post, you can see it HERE. The die used is the Tim Holtz Carved Ornaments Die.
This Carved Ornaments Die is a ‘bigz’ die, which means that you can cut multiple layers of cardstock at once. You can even die cut other materials, such as fabric, fun foam, even thin metal!
Monday’s card featured both ornaments from the die, and they were coloured with alcohol ink. Today’s card features one ornament, die cut from foil paper.
I received a paper pack from Scrap ‘N Stamp (I’m on the Design Team – it’s a wonderful perk!) that I used for today’s card. It’s a 6″ x 6″ Holiday paper pack from American Crafts. What I love about this paper pack is not only does it have patterned paper, but it also includes foil and glimmer paper! And it’s all colour coordinated to work together! Be sure to pick some up – I’m including the link at the bottom of this post.
First, start with the red foil from the paper pack. Cut it to a 3 1/2″ strip, to fit this ornament. Run it through your Big Shot for the die cut. Next, either add a wide strip of double-sided adhesive tape, or a wide line of liquid glue, across the middle of the ornament. Now, layer on some chunky gold glitter on top of the adhesive. Set it aside to dry, while you work on the card front.
Take a piece of white cardstock, and blend on Broken China Distress Oxide around the outside edges. Next, place the Fir Branch Stencil from The Crafters Workshop to the front of the blended cardstock. Use blending tools or brushes to add Pine Needles and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks through the stencil. I like to use Purple Tape, to hold my stencil in place while I work. For the sentiment, use the Poppystamps Christmas Quotes stamp set, and stamp in Versamark ink onto red cardstock. Next, cover the ink with gold embossing powder, and then set it with a heat tool. Use the coordinating dies to die cut it, and another circle from gold foil. (I bought the Christmas Quotes Bundle, which includes the stamps and the dies).
LAYER IT TOGETHER
Now you’re ready to put your card together! Attach the blended panel to a red cardstock base, with either fun foam sheet or foam tape. Next, attach the die cut ornament with foam tape. Finally, layer the sentiment circle on top & offset over the gold foil die cut circle with foam tape, and then glue to the card front.
It sure is difficult to photograph this foil ornament, trying to show the colours without the glare! Well, you can sort of see the red ornament, and the ‘flare’ from the gold circle!
Even though this card has multiple layers, including the stencil, it came together fairly quickly. You could easily do multiples of it, in an ‘assembly line’ fashion.
