Christmas Diagonal Swing Front Card

Sunday means that it's time to share another fun card that I've made with this months Rubber Cafe' Creative Card Kit!

Today I have a fun "Diagonal swing front card" to share with you that I made with The Rubber Cafe' October Kit of the Month, "Christmas behind the scenes".

I used the add on stamp kit, "Santa's Workshop",  Scrap Happy Gluememento inkcopic markers, and Score Tape.

Here is a look at the front of the  Card. Keep scrolling down for step by step instructions to create one on your own.


Here is the inside.


To create the front diagonal flap, cut a 4 1/4" wide white panel and a 4" patterned paper panel.  Cut the diagonal top on the two panels.
Score the long edge of the white panel.


Adhere the patterned paper panel to the 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" tree panel with Score Tape.


Here's how it will look on the front.


Here's how it will look on the back.


Adhere the panel to a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" panel of green cardstock.


 Create a tag and stamp "Merry Christmas" on it.
Tie the tag to the front panel with twine.


Create the main image panel by die cutting a red scallop edge circle panel with a Spellbinders die.
Die cut another slightly smaller scallop edge green circle with a Spellbinders die.
Stamp elf on a die cut white circle and color with markers.
Adhere all the panels together as shown and then adhere to card with Scrap Happy Sheer Glue.


When you adhere the image to the card, only use Scrap Happy Sheer Glue on the part that is attached to the "Present Patterned Paper" so that the front panel can still swing open.


Then on the inside of the card, create this panel by stamping and coloring the image.  Back it with red cardstock and adhere to card.



That's it!  I hope you you enjoyed today's "Diagonal Swing Front Card" tutorial and that you will give it a try! 


Supplies:
Stamps: The Rubber Cafe' - October Kit of the Month, "Christmas behind the scenes" and the add on set.

Adhesives: The Rubber Cafe' - Scrap Happy Sheer GlueScore Tape

Embellishments: The three colored twines are from the October Kit of the Month, "Christmas behind the scenes"

Here's my project for our final day:
I made a fun box perfect for gift giving.
It's the perfect size to put a small present in and put under the tree for a special recipient!


For today's project I started with a cardboard box from Hobby Lobby.
I painted it with Deco Art Acrylic Paint and let it dry.



When dry, I stenciled Rain onto the top of the box with Pearlescent Embossing Paste.




I stenciled one Southwest Snowflake on each side of the box.



Then I die cut Leafless Tree out of Core'dinations Cardstock.  I sanded the tree to make it snowy.
Then I stamped, colored and cut out Jumbo Cling Rubber Snowman Woodland and adhered it to the box.



I created the "snow" with "snow"....Spoonful of Snow embossing powder and elements!



The final touch was to add the little critters that come with Jumbo Cling Rubber Snowman Woodland



One final view!

Stampendous, Coredination, and Dreamweaver Christmas




SANDY Claus is Coming to Town!

Yes...SANDY Claus! All of this week, the Stampendous and Dreamweaver teams are playing with a mix of their products, along with some wonderful, SAND-ABLE papers from Core'dinations. Join us as we sand our way to the "core" of all things Christmas and the Holiday season. Of course, there will be prizes, and we give away the best...this time with a mix of funCore'dinations products as well. To be one of three prize package winners, follow the posted link lists each day, leave a comment, and winners will be selected from these comments at the beginning of next week. Here is what you might win:


Here's what I'm showing off today...a festive 5" x 7" canvas to hang on the wall!


I started with a 5" x 7" canvas and colored Gelatos across the surface.


Then I blended it with a wet wipe, purposely adding in some white to make it look windy/snowy.


Before stenciling I found a block that fit perfectly in the space on the back of the canvas which allowed me to create a flatter surface to stencil on.


I taped the Heart Ornaments stencil on to my canvas with Removable Magic Tape being sure to cover the hearts.


I mixed green acrylic paint with matte embossing paste and stencilled the branches on to the canvas.

While it was still wet I sprinkled Ultra Fine Glitter on the branch.


When the branch was dry I replaced the stencil and stenciled the hearts and string with embossing paste that I created with red acrylic paint and regular embossing past.  Then I covered the hearts with Red Micro Glitter and let dry.


When dry, I dumped the loose glitter back into the jar.
Then I tore the edges of some Core'dination glitter Cardstock.
I colored the torn edges with a B000 Copic Marker and then adhered it to the bottom of the canvas.


To finish my canvas, I stamped the images from the Jumbo Cling Rubber Forest Friends stamp set on white cardstock with Memento Ink and colored with Copic Markers.  Then I cut the images out and adhered to the canvas.

I adhered the red ribbon on to the edges of the canvas to create my hanger.


Here's a closer look...


And here's a better view of that fantabulous Core'dination Snow!


I hope you enjoyed my project today!
