Catch the Bug #4

Back again with my fourth card, still got some catching up to do and not sure I will be able to do all of them before the deadline. This time there is a recipe to follow: 3 embellishments, 2 designer papers, 1 ribbon/twine.

Materials used:SAM_1801(watermarked)
Bugaboo Stamps – Christmas 25
Copic pens
2 scraps of designer paper from stash
sheet of Christmas tartan card
tartan ribbon from stash
black candi
silver metal snowflake
Happy Christmas stamp
black archival ink pad
A5 white card blank
circle dies
Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Sprinkles

I printed out my image, coloured it in with the Copics and cut it with a circle die. I also cut two pieces of designer paper with larger dies and stuck them together offsetting them. I cut the corners off the card blank to make it into a giant tag shape and covered the front with the patterned card. I attached a length of ribbon around the card front and attached my topper on top. I attached the snowflake with it’s brad and the black candi. Finally I stamped my greeting at the bottom of the card.

The eagle-eyed among you will have no doubt noticed the error in that I cannot count and ended up with 4 embellishments. By the time I noticed it was too late to alter it and too late to start again so I hope it does not disqualify it from entry. Fingers crossed! The card can actually be used as a greetings card or as a tag for a very large present.

Thank you for visiting. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
