Well most of the Christmas cards are on their way now and it's back to making birthday cards for family and friends. This is a birthday card for a niece.
This image called 'I wonder what is this' is from The Paper Shelter and I coloured it using Promarkers. I then cut it out using a Spellbinders square die and while it was still in the die coloured the edges using distress ink. I then matted it onto orange core'dinations cardstock which had been cut out using the Tattered Lace die Chatsworth scalloped square.
I cut a square of yellow centura pearl card and onto this attached four pieces of paler orange core'dinations cardstock which had been cut out using the Tattered Lace die Chatsworth corner. I then wrapped a quarter inch ribbon round the middle of this card and then a second narrower ribbon on top of this. The prepared image was then threaded through the longer edge of the four corner pieces and fixed in place. The whole was then matted onto white card.
I cut two tags using one of the Spellbinders holiday tag dies from two shades of yellow core'dination cardstock and attached peel off sentiments to them. I threaded a piece of the narrow ribbon through the horizontal ribbon on the card and attached a tag to each end. Finally I atteched a bow to the top of each tag.
