If you thought I posted many pictures yesterday, wait until today's post!! Michelle is spoiling you here with not only a gooorgeous project but tons of details. I hope she gets tons of comments because she truly deserves it ;)
She made a beautiful "scroll card". I had never seen one of these before but I might try it!
Grab a small box and some paints, the TH alterations box is perfect.
Paint the box with Eco Green Crafts - Acrylic paint
When dry paint with a thick coat of Viva Croco Paint: transparent
Measure the width of the inside of the box (here 38mm)
Cut a piece of thin card 38mm off the long side of an A4 sheet. Stamp the LaBlanche silicone stamp: 2 meadow stamps along the bottom of the card strip then brush TH Barn Door, Broken China and Mustard Seed Distress inks along the sky area of the card.
Colour the grass and flowers in the image and stamp a message along the card using a mini alpha stamp set. See Go Kreate - Rome alpha stamp
Pierce two holes in both long sides of the box, large enough to hold a barbecue skewer
Push barbecue skewers through the holes and trim to size. Stick wooden beads on each end of the skewer using glossy accents.
Adhere one end of the card strip to the skewer using PVA glue, hold in place till set and leave to dry thoroughly.
When dry roll the card onto the skewer using the beads to move the roll.
Repeat at the other end of the card and roll up the scroll until it's fairly closely rolled.
Cut and score a piece of heavy card to fit the box.
Decorate with patterned paper as desired.
I finished the gift card off with a Tando Dove a bit of ribbon, a flower and a sentiment, all finished with a quick rub of rub and buff.
