12 Days Backgrounds...
Ive something new to show you in the 12 days collection today these are the backgrounds, of which there are 4, to match the stamps and paper pack. I designed these specifically to pick up some of the designs on the pack to compliment all the papers and stamp sets. However these are also sized so that you can use them, on their own, for simple batch christmas cards should you wish to.
The first card is made using the vintage snowflake A6 background stamped in Geranium Red archival onto coconut white foundation card. I mounted this onto a couple of layers of rich red and coconut white and wrapped a piece of the bakers twine (from the brights set) around a twice and tied a quick not.
The main pears are made from one of the other backgrounds the Pear Square which is a 4 x 4" square background stamps. here I have cut it into quarters and used 2 of them, lined in the red, offset as the topper.
to finish this card I simply stamped the sentiment, from the Partridge stamp set, in jet black arrival on a strip of coconut white, added a couple of layers of red and white, and foam mounted this on top at the bottom. A quick but effective card that could be simplified further.
Next are 2 more, one A6 and another 4 x 4" square the stitched hearts background and the 12 days square. For this card I stamped the square twice using jet black archival one of these i mounted on red card. the other I cut some of the individual squares out form, mounted them in red and foam mounted them on top of their counterparts.
I stamped the stitched hearst background, cut it out and again mounted it onto red card. I added this to a 14x14cm square of coconut white card on the left hand side. I tried a strip of the thin scarlet ribbon around and added d double bow. I foam mounted the main square over this and mounted the whole piece on a square of the red before adding to a white card blank.
These backgrounds will be available on the Create and Craft shows tomorrow .
To be in with a chance of winning one of the sets of stamps and the backgrounds just let me know which of these 2 cards you prefer!
