And a few others bits:-
White card, white card for stamping, Black memento ink, Soft Suede, Highland Heather, Pear Pizzazz and Sahara Sand ink pad. Pear Pizzazz card stock– Stampin Up!, fine silver glitter, silver sparkly bakers twine, wet glue, Foam pads, hot glue
I coloured it with Copics:- Wings -Y00, RV00, Ox – E59, E35, chicken – R14, E43, Mary headdress – RV00, RV02, crib – E84, E43, shepherds headdress – Woo, W1,W3, W5, Skin – E000, E00, Shepherd – E31, E35, Shepherd 2 – W00, Y04, Y00, Shepherd 3 – B000, B00, B2, hair – E59
This is how I made it:-
Cut 2 pieces of white card 7.5” x 5” and score at 3.75”, 1.25”, 6.25” and 6.75”, fold the 2 inside score lines into a mountain fold and the outer score lines to make a valley fold.
Select the paper from the pad and cut a square slightly smaller than 5” and 2 strips the same height slightly less than 1.5”. Edge with Pear Pizzazz ink and adhere the square to the card front using wet glue, allow to dry. When dry, die cut a circle using the largest basic circle from the die set in the centre of the paper to form the aperture at the front of the card.
Make a Pear Pizzazz frame:- using the eyelet circle die cut the eyelet circle, then position the largest basic circle in the centre and die cut. Adhere the frame to the aperture you created on the card front.
Select a paper from the pad for the card background and cut a square slightly smaller than 5”, edge with Highland Heather ink and adhere to the back section of the card. Using the aperture on the front part of the card as a guide, position the nativity and secure into place with foam pads.
Stamp the pine needles in Soft Suede ink on white card and colour using pear Pizzazz and sahara sand ink. Die cut and shape the pine needles using the flower shaping kit. Position a few of these around the crib using hot glue – retain 3 or 4 for the front of the card.
Adhere the 2 strips of paper to the front edges of the card and glue the front and back pieces of the card together.
Stamp the branches in soft suede onto white card and colour the branches in sahara sand ink. Colour the ornaments in copics to co-ordinate with the characters. Add glitter where the snow is shown on the branches. Shape and add to the top of the card using wet glue.
Add the shepherds and angels using hot glue.
Die cut the sentiment and position at the front of the card with the remaining pine needles. Tie a sparkly bakers twine bow to finish.
Happy Christmas in July
