Last weekend I went to my first crop with a bestie of mine, Janice. We arrived at Old Orchard Inn on Friday afternoon and left late afternoon on Sunday. During that time I slept less than 7 hours, completed 13 cards, started 2 cards, had a back massage at the spa and- most of all- had a fabulously fun time. :)
One of the first cards I made used a new die from Cheery Lynn, 3-D Poinsettia. Here are the steps I used to create this card:
- Distress Ink 2 sheets of white card stock using Distress Inks in Festive Berries, Barn Door and Vintage Photo. Dry.
- Die cut three poinsettias from one of the inked card stock. Apply Distress paint Rock Candy to all three poinsettias. Allow to air dry.
- While poinsettias are drying, die cut doily from white card stock.
- Cut patterned Christmas paper to size and apply gold ink to edge.
- Cut Kraft paper, white card stock, and second sheet of inked card stock to size. Mount to tent fold Kraft card.
- Cut dried poinsettias as shown. Apply Distress Inks in Vintage Photo and Walnut stain to edges.
- Mount doily and poinsettia die cuts to card.
- Apply Stickles to center of poinsettia and in open areas of doily as desired.
Aside from the drying time for the crackle and Stickles, the card came together quickly and fits easily into an envelope. Perfect for making multiples this holiday season.
