Hello Everyone, Pamellia here! So glad you dropped in to Frilly and Funkie today for my Saturday Step by Step. I have put together a complete tutorial on the Christmas card I made for Jenny's "All Lined Up" challenge. I really had fun playing with my wonderful new products from The Funkie Junkie Boutique!! I hope you enjoy!
I cut three panels from the Pion Design paper stacks Siri's Kitchen and A Day in May, sizes 6", 5.5" and 5" squared. I layered them onto slightly larger panels of white, distressed all the edges and layered them together with foam squares.
I cut a panel of corrugated cardboard about 5" x 3".
I cut a deer from striped Pion Design paper using the Tim Holtz Reindeer Flight die, and edged it with Potting Soil Archival ink from Ranger.
I chose a great image from the Tim Holtz Festive Ephemera pack and distressed it.
Some seam binding that I coloured with Distress ink spray Walnut stain and then tied in a bow.
I cut a doily with a Prima die and pulled out a couple of these fabulous wood chippies from Southern Trading Co.
I made this ruffled ribbon using May Arts ribbon. To see a full tutorial on how to create these wonderful ruffles, visit my Friday Focus on May Arts Ribbon here.
Time to layer a few things together to make sure the base design has a good balance.
Next I cut some leaves out of a striped page from the Tim Holtz Yuletide paper pad and edged them with Potting Soil.
I used some of this lovely baker's twine, a beautiful reindeer charm and some jingle bells to add a little extra festive cheer.
I added some Petaloo flowers and Wild Orchid flowers as well as some Tim Holtz Mirror Stars.
Some last minute touches with some Prima Gesso, Holiday Words die, a little clothes pin, Chit Chat stickers and a spritz of Picket Fence for good measure.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial. Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions. There's still lots of time to enter our current challenge "ALL LINED UP". We'll be back first thing on Monday to announce the winners of our last challenge, so make sure to check in for that.
Thanks for stopping in!
Hugs, Pamellia :)
