Tuesday, and I'm happy to report the day has nothing scheduled. Hopefully, it will be peaceful and full of crafty mojo - which I am in desperate need of!
Today I've got a little holiday card to share from a recent project call. I spied this twine wrapping technique in an old holiday issue of Martha Stewart Living. I punched that scallop shape from some wood veener so I'd have a rigid base, then got to wrapping to make my little wreath. It sits on top of an embossed kraft panel with an SRM Sticker. (love those white stickers). Underneath it all a diagonal patterned SEI holiday paper. Diagonals are the best as card bases because you get a nice selection of color one each side:
Love this technique. Here's a better angle to see the embossing:
materials: cardstock: Bazzill; patterned paper: SEI; sticker sentiment: SRM; wood veneer: Stampin' Up; twine: The Twinery; embossing folder: Quickcutz
This card would be so easy to mass produce. I'm wondering if I could teach my kids how to make the little wreaths? hmmm....
Have you started making any holiday crafts/projects yet? This is around the time I always start to think about it. I definitley plan to get my family photo taken in a more timely manner this year, but other than that, I'm not making any promises!
