In keeping with the season, I created this make-and-take featuring Elizabeth Craft dies and stickers, Darice embossing folders, Scor-Tape and Copic markers.
First, I cut a 3.75" piece off Elizabeth Craft's SS 0102 White Iris Shimmer Sheet and embossed it on my Grand Callibur using Darice's snow flakes embossing folder. I then placed a strip of .25" Scor-Tape along the bottom quarter of the shimmer sheet. After removing the top cover of the tape, I placed ribbon from my stash along the tape trail and secured the ends on the back of the mylar. I then added more adhesive to theback of the Mylar and centered it on the A-2 card cover.
To make the tree, I cut a 2.5" x 11.5" piece of cardstock and placed it on the sticky side of a 2.5" wide piece of score-tape. I cut it off the roll and placed the five elements of Elizabeth Craft's EC 755 - Five-Part Pine metal die face down on the top of the Scor-tape piece. I ran those five elements through my Grand Calibur. Once cut, I removed the blue waxy tops from the adhesive and added glitter to them using SparkleNSprinkle's semitransparent Sparkling Snow glitter. I finger burnished the glitter, pushing it into the adhesive and then colored each piece of the tree with Copic G29 - Pine Tree Green marker. In my original sample, I colored the entire tree in green. In this one, I left the tips white/clear to accentuate each section of the tree. This was the sample I started in my make-and-take and that I quickly finished at home
I attached vertical strips of the .25" Scor Tape to the back of each tree element and layered them accordingly. I cut a 1" strip off my transfer tape and picked up either Merry Christmas or Christmas Wishes stickers using EC 351G - Merry Christmas (Gold) or EC 376G - Christmas Wishes (Gold), depending on availability. I positioned the sentiment on the Myylar, pressed it into position and removed the transfer sheet from the card front.
The results, a finished card! Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas to you.
