Welcome to this week's
StampTV Kit Addicts - Friday Funday Tutorial!
I am so honored to be hosting the Friday Funday Tutorial for this week. I think eyelets add a lot of interest and dimension to a card project and I feel the same way about twine. So to play along all you have to do is add either eyelets, twine or both to your card project. Super fun!!!!
I chose the Winter Cheer Stamp set from the 2014, Winter Cheer Stamp TV kit, because it is by far one of my favorite Christmas stamp sets. And I am so excited that Gina just release matching dies for this fabulous set.
To begin my card project I created a Cherry Red card base cut to 8 1/2 X 5 1/2 inches and scored at 4 1/4. Next I cut a layering white panel to 5 X 3 3/4 inches and in Christmas Pine I cut a panel to 4 3/4 X 3 1/2.
For the main background panel I chose tone on tone in Christmas Pine. Both paper and ink are the same color. Because I wanted a random pattern, I used a clear block to randomly stamp the pine branch all over the panel.
I flipped the panel over and marked the back where the eyelets would be placed. Then using a punch tool I cut the all four eyelet holes.
Using an eyelet setting tool I set the eyelets into place. You do not need to use an eyelet setting tool to do this. You can use the back of a pen. Click HERE for a quick video on setting eyelets.
Next I strung red and white bakers twine between the four eyelets and taped the twine in place on the back of my panel. This formed a nice frame on the front of the panel.
To match the color of the eyelets, I heat embossed the penguin and Merry Christmas banner in gold. Using the coordinating dies I cut out both embossed images.
To assemble the card I attached the white and green panels to the card base and popped up the gold embossed images. For a touch of bling, I added a very small red gem to the penguins hat.
