You may wonder what you
are being asked to find.......
Worry not Find It is the name
of a die cut company, new to
us but some of you may be
familiar with them.
We thought we'd give them a
whirl this week and here is
Jane Castle to start us off:
"Well time is marching on at a pace
and if you have not made all of your
Christmas cards yet here's a
fairly quick idea that can be
changed with a different centre piece
so as to not get boring in the making.
To begin with I did all of the die cutting
using a fab set from Find-It Media
called 'Christmas Card Set'.
This set is great value for money,
cuts and embosses beautifully and
some elements can be used all year round.
Below I've added a photo of a piece
I cut, embossed and then stamped whilst
the card was still in the die.
This leaves a very fine clean edge all the way
round rather than cutting after stamping.
Whoops, back to the job in hand!
Next I stamped the crate image from a
Craft Emotions stamp set onto white card
and kraft card. The kraft card was then
cut so as to form the outside of the crate.
Both images were heat embossed with clear
embossing powder. Colour was added using
Distress Markers and Jelly Roll pens.
The card blank had DI in old paper added
to the edges and then using the same ink
stamped the zig-zag lines from Jofy 07.
These were then brushed with Perfect Pearls.
A tag was stamped using Jofy 47 stamp set
and this was attached to the crate with some
ribbon before fixing to the card.
A little Treasure Gold was rubbed onto the
die cut mounts after lightly sanding.
The gorgeous holly die-cuts were then
slightly shaped and curled as I prefer things
not completely flat.
Stickles were added to the berries and
Pewter Liquid Pearls added to the crate
to enhance the nails.
It's a long while since I made any traditional
red/green Christmas cards and they do have
that magical feel to them, I wonder if it will catch on!!
Enjoy your Christmas card making X"
Many thanks Jane, a super
project to start us off
At the rate I'm going it doesn't
look like I shall be sending any
cards this year! Better get
my skates on......
