Wrapped In Plaid

Wrapped in Plaid, Pine Tree Punch

Today I tackled a spinner card and it was such FUN to do. Yes, a bit tricky, but after doing a Pinterest search for a video, I figured it out. One thing to remember is whatever you want to spin, it mustg be a reversible image. There are some things I have to learn about this new computer too, like how to load my own video onto this site… And this card with the spinning tree is cute! Until I learn how to do that – still shots of the card are what I have.

The base of the card is Cherry Cobbler. Additional card stock used is Whisper White, Shaded Spruce, Wrapped in Plaid Specialty DSP. Other supplies include: Pine Tree Punch (a carry over item to 2020 BTW!), and 2 3/8″ Stitched circle die, clear thread, Tear ‘n Tape, Tombow glue and Toile Tidings Glitter enamel dots, and finally Glimmer dots from the Christmastime Is Here Suite.

Dashing Deer Wrapped in Plaid

Hi Everyone, It’s been a couple of days since I posted and I wanted to touch base again. Today’s card is simple and elegant and was our project for class Monday night. Each person’s was a bit different as the various patterns of Wrapped In Plaid DSP made it distinctive.

Here’s the card:

Isn’t it elegant? I like that it has no sentiment on the front, just the simple beauty of the deer.
Here are the deets:
Thick Whisper White CS – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
Wrapped In Plaid DSP – 4″ x 5 1/4″
Shaded Spruce – 3′ x 4 1/4′
Whisper White – 2 3/4″ x 4″ (cut 2 of these, one for stamping and die cutting the deer), 4″ x 5 1/4″ for the inside.

Instructions:
* Adhere the Wrapped In Plaid DSP to the Whisper White CS.
* Adhere the other Whisper White CS piece to the Shaded Spruce. Add dimensionals to the Shaded Spruce and adhere to the card.
* Stamp the deer in Cherry Cobbler. I used my stamparatus since sometimes I want to ink and stamp the deer again and this makes it so easy to do! Using your favorite die cutting machine, cut out the deer. Place on dimensions, including the legs. Yes, it does mean you have to cut dimensionals apart, but it’s worth it for the stability. Adhere the deer to the card.
* Make a bow and adhere with glue dots. For this card the bow is a non-SU! product, but linen thread could have been used and that would have looked great too.

For the inside I used a scrap from cutting down the 6 x 6 DSP (about 3/4′ x 4″) to the bottom of the additional pice of Whisper White. Stamp your favorite greeting and voila – done!

Gift Card Holder

Thought I would share with you the gift card holders I made today. Inspired by one of my students. here they are… see below

* Card stock is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored on the long side at 3 1/8, 4 1/4 & 5 3/8
* Fold in half, burnish; fold the other two scored sides the opposite direction. Card now looks as though it has a W in the middle. Adhere that ‘W’ inside.
* I made the front piece to hold the gift card by using tear n tape on the ends of the fold.
* Decorate as desired: my sizes for the front were..CS: 3 x 5 3/8, DSP: at 2 7/8 x 5 1/4. The inside dimension was 3 x 5 3/8

Have fun!!!
This is the outside: the envelope is a standard small envelope, decorated to coordinate with each individual card holder.

And here’s the inside:

As I made several (5 to be exact), here are photos of the outside of the others:
