I have spent the last weekend working on the BMB Christmas Cards for 2014, it’s been a couple of years since I made a batch, last year because of the change of job and the year before because of work pressures.
But this year as part of my refound compulsion to craft, I have started the cards:
The key element is the Christmas Tree inspired by a pin on Pinterest. It is based on fours Squares (3, 2.5, 2, 1.5 inches in size) which is firstly folded into a waterbomb base. Once you have the base fold the two corners on the top layer down along the centre fold line to create the point.
To assemble, I drew the tree base onto a Kraft tag, using super sticky I fixed the triangles one on top of the other from the largest upwards. To give it a bit of depth, I put a single 3D foam under the peak to raise it up a little.
The star is from the original 2×2 Quickutz Nativity Die set and is embossed with a quickutz embossing folder as I needed something with small details.
As I am getting back into the crafting zone, I am starting to visit my old challenge blogs on a more regular basis and this card is perfect for the Simon Says… We’re Seeing Stars challenge this week as even my stars are seeing stars!
The card is finished by a length of ribbon and adhesive pearls.
