Hello everyone! Welcome again to another CHA project post. This is the last of the projects I have to share featuring new Tim Holtz Idea-ology and Sizzix. Next up is Tim Holtz Stamper’s Anonymous.
This card is pretty simple to create. Begin 12″ x 4 1/4″ piece of cardstock (Tim Holtz Shattered Kraft Core). Fold the cardstock in half so that it creates a top fold card. Cut a piece of pattern paper (Tim Holtz Merriment) to 12″ x 4″. Fold the pattern paper in half so that it creates a top fold card. Use an ink blending tool to apply Black Soot Distress Ink to the edges of the papers. Adhere the pattern paper card over the cardstock card. The fold will make the pattern paper piece seem slightly shorter in the front.
Die cut a large Sized Oval from black pattern paper (Tim Holtz Collage Mini Paper Stash). Apply white Christmastime Remnant Rubs to the black oval. Apply a black Remnant Rubs sentiment to a small scrap of manilla cardstock. Trim around the sentiment to create a small text strip. Use an ink blending tool to apply Black Soot Distress Ink to the edge of the strip. Dye a piece of Crinkle Ribbon using Peeled Paint Distress Stain. Tap over the ribbon with Vintage Photo Distress Ink on an ink blending tool. After drying the ribbon, tie it around the oval. Tie the ribbon in a bow on the left side of the oval.
Adhere the oval to the front of the card. Machine stitch around the oval and around the card front.
Embellish the bow with a Wire Pin. Use a Jump Ring to adhere a few small Baubles to the end of the pin. You can color the Baubles with Alcohol Ink the give the a touch of color. Flatten the prongs on a Custom Fastener and glue it in place over the pin and bow.
Die cut a set of Victorian Carolers from manila cardstock. Mist the die cuts with Black Marble Dylusions Ink Spray. After drying the ink, mist the die cuts with Pewter Perfect Pearls mist to give them a silvery shimmer. Adhere the male caroler to the front of the card on the right using adhesive glue dots.
Adhere the female to the right using thicker adhesive foam squares. Using the two different types of adhesive will allow both to be lifted off of the front of the card at two different heights. It is an easy way to get three levels of layers without create a card that is too thick.
Ok, I am off now to edit the photos of the 12 cards I made for Stampers Anonymous. See you tomorrow with the start of those!
