Yes thats right, Christmas for us crafters has started. Times are a little unusual right now, so having the comforting christmas word being used in the crafting community is a nice little comfort blanket.
My project for Polkadoodles this month, is a star card. I love making these, as they look so effective and pretty when standing on a mantle piece or shelf.
This card is made from a red piece of 6×12″ folded to make a 6×6″ card blank, then the corners are cut away to make a triangle card blank and 2 triangle pieces that have been cut away.
The triangular card base and the 2 triangular pieces has been matted with white card stock and the lovely printable polkadoodles papers.
The two triangular pieces have then been stuck together to form a star shape, and the now triangular card base, has two slits cut in at the edges to act as a stand and that is what the star shape slides into.
The stamped image, has then been printed on white card and coloured in using my alcohol markers, its just such a fun image. I love the cuteness of it. 🙂 It represents the fun of Christmas. This has been added to a gold doily and a die cut scalloped white and red circles to add some depth and interest.
The tag has then been printed and then cut out to act as a sentiment for the card.
I am a little addicted to twine so then, twine was added to finish off the tag and a couple of gold gems were added to finish off the card.
I love how simple this card starts as, just one main piece of red card stock, and it just builds up and becomes magical.
It was such a pleasure making this card for Polkadoodles, and I cant wait for the next one 🙂
Thanks again. xo
