Hello and happy Thursday!
Is everyone recovered from World Card Making Day 2014? I hope so.
Today’s card is a little unexpected and whimsical.
This card has an adorable little reindeer suspended in the center of the frame.
To Make this card I used a standard A2 size with a top fold. If I had to make this card again I probably would have made it with a side fold, but that’s OK it is still fun.
To make this card I cut a frame from some patterned paper and the smallest one on the front of the card. I then colored and cut two of the reindeer so that I could glue them together and they would look the same if the card was closed or open. I next cut a piece of my husbands fishing line and laid it in the center of one of the backs of the reindeer and taped it down, I then glued the other reindeer on top of the first one back to back. Now I taped the line in the center of the card base opening and at the bottom. Finally I adhered the pattern paper to the front to cover up the tape and fishing line ends. I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed on the front and on the inside towards the bottom where you can’t see it when the card is closed. Finally I added glossy accents to the reindeer’s nose on both sides for shine.
Here are the goodies used to make this card:
I hope this card gives you some new inspiration to see what you can used to suspend in the middle of you card. Just use your imagination and give it a try.
If you have any questions please leave a comment and I will get right back to you with an answer
