Anything but a card.

Deedee’s Digis  is sponsoring the Allsorts Challenge which runs for a week  from today. The theme this week is ‘Anything But a Card’. My DT samples for this challenge are a gift bag and a couple of very quick ATC’s.

Materials used:SAM_2398(watermarked)
Deedee’s Digi Stamp Set – Polar Peace (still at special offer price)
1″ square punch
stamping card
silver mirri card
black sparkle card
Trimcraft Silent Night designer card
x – cut gift bag die
Copic pens
silver pen

Print out the images at the desired size onto the blending card and colour in with the Copics and the silver pen (for the stars).

Use the die to cut the bag out of designer card. Glue the two parts together but do not make up the bag, keep it so it still lies flat.

Mat the image onto silver mirri card leaving a narrow border around the edges. Then attach the matted image onto the front of the bag.

Join the last edge of the bag and secure the bottom with glue.

For the ATC’s print out a smaller image and colour in. Trim down to make up the two panels.

To make the stars crop the image so that you only have the star and resize accordingly. (I made mine so they would fit on an inchie.) Colour the stars with the silver pen and punch them out.

Cut the ATC blanks from black sparkle card and arrange the elements on the front before sticking them down.

This will not be the last outing for this particular set from Deedee there is still one more make to come before the end of the month!

Thanks for dropping by. 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.
