It is time for another Kristina Werner Color Challenge, and this week's colours are:
Kristina did say that you could substitute the Sahara Sand for a metallic, and I have done this, but have used a metal edge tag for my metallic. I have also substituted Real Red for Riding Hood Red, as we don't yet have that colour here in Oz.
This is my card:
The base cardstock is Real Red and has been stamped with one of the snow flake stamps from the Merry, Merry stamp set. The hat lining is Whisper White and has been punched out with the scallop punch. I have mounted the triangular piece of the hat up on dimensionals. The hat ornament is a metal edge tag, mounted up on a scallop of whisper white cardstock. The sentiment is from the Merry, Merry stamp set, and has been stamped in Real Red classic ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and punched out with the 1 inch circle punch.
I thought I'd make you a really quick tutorial in case you were interested in making one of these Santa Hat cards yourself:
Step 1: Cut an A4 sheet of cardstock in half, length-ways:
Step 2: Score at halfway mark and fold cardstock. Make pencil marks at 0.5 inch and 1.5 inch from the bottom, on both sides, and at 1 inch from each corner at the top. Draw lines connecting marks as shown in the image below, and cut along these lines:
Step 3: Cut along the lines you have drawn, then stamp cardstock. Run SNAIL adhesive along the bottom 1 inch of the cardstock as shown below:
Step 4: Mount four scallop circles along base of card, to form hat lining (if you want your card to fit in an envelope, you'll have to make sure you don't extend the scallops too far past the edge of the hat, or reduce the width of the base cardstock):
Step 5: Using a piece of cardstock 2 inches wide and 3 inches long, mark out a triangle:
Step 6: Decorate triangle, cut it out, mount on dimensionals and affix to top front of card:
Then just add your hat decoration, and you're done!
Hope this helps :-).
