Flourishes and this months challenge is to make a shaped card or a 3D item. Well, I couldn't decide which one to do and in the end, I made both!! For the card, I die cut a piece of folded white cardstock with a Spellbinders Labels One, then I die cut more white card with a Spellbinders Decorative Labels One and attached it to the folded base. The paper is from Christmas Basics paper pad (Crafters Choice). Next, I added red cardstock die cut with a Spellbinders Standard Circle die. Then, I die cut white cardstock with a Spellbinders Renaissance Hearts Pendant. I stamped the image from Flourishes Sweets of the Season stamp set with Memento ink onto blending card, coloured it with copics, punched it out with a Fiskars 2" circle punch and layered it onto a red circle. I put foam tape between the paper and the first red circle and more foam tape between the pendant and the image piece. Finally, I added white pearls and small red rhinestones around the edge of the pendant.
The 3D Christmas Ornament was made in much the same way, using a cardboard ribbon spool for the base (the back of the ornament is the same as the front).- I've been saving my empty ribbon spools and now have a handy little pile of them to make ornaments for this Christmas.
I just can't wait to see this months release from my favourite stamp company..........five sets this month - Wow!
Copic Colours used were: R22, R24, R27, R37, R89, YG63, YG67, C1.
