Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

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.
