Clean and Simple Pine Christmas Cards

Rubbernecker Stamps October Sale

Good Sunday morning.  I have two clean and simple pine Christmas cards to share with you today made using the new Rubbernecker Twigs die.  For my first card I used the twigs to create a small pine wreath and paired it with the Window 4 Pane die and embellished the wreath with a bright red multi loop bow.. 

Come see how I make pretty clean and simple pine Christmas cards.

The Window and Card Base

  • Cut a piece of green designer paper 4.25″ x 2.75″ and attach it to the top of the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Cut a piece of white card stock 4.25″ x 3.00″, score it every .25″ across the paper using your Scor-Pal and attach to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Cut two windows using white cardstock.
  • Use the window as a template to draw cut lines on the card base.
  • Cut the opening on the card base using your craft knife.  Cut about 1/8″ outside the drawn cut lines.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the window and attach over the front opening of the card base.
  • Apply ATG adhesive to the back f the second window and attach it to the inside opening of the card base.

The Wreath

  • Cut a circle wreath base using green cardstock.
  • Cut several sets of the Twigs.
  • Trim off the top half of the twigs to make small enough for this wreath size.
  • Attach the twigs to the wreath base using glossy accents. Alternate the the direction of the twigs, one left, one right and one center and continue all the way around the wreath. 
  • Create a multi loop bow and attach it to the wreath using glue dots.
  • Attach the wreath to the lower window using glossy accents.
  • You can check out my wreath video and step by step tutorial on Splitcoaststampers.

Come see how I make clean and simple pine Christmas cards.

My second card paired the Twigs with the Borders #3.  I created a pine twig bough on the pretty white layer and embellished it with a red multi loop bow.

Come see how I make lovely clean and simple pine Christmas cards.

The Scalloped Layer

  • Cut the Borders #3 using white cardstock.
  • Attach the layer to the card base using strips of mounting tape.

The Pine Twigs Bough

  • Cut several sets of the Twigs die using green cardstock.
  • Begin attaching twigs in the center of the white layer using glossy accents, alternating the twigs left and right to create the the bough base.
  • Trim off the bottom third of several twigs and attach them to fill in over top of the base to create a full bough.
  • Create a multi loop red bow and attach to the bough with glue dots.

Come see how I make elegant clean and simple pine Christmas cards.

I had fun making these die cut pine Christmas cards.  As much as I love creating detailed scene or floral projects with lots of part and pieces, it is always nice to make several clean and simple cards to have on hand for those last minute card needs.  Today is the last day of the Rubbernecker sale.  Be sure and check out all the new dies that I have used over the last several posts. Thanks so much for coming by.

Die Cut Paper Flower Wreath

Good Sunday morning.  I have a colorful die cut paper flower wreath card to share with you today that I made for this week’s Featured Stamper challenge over at Splitcoaststampers.  The featured artist this week is Preethisc and I was inspired by her Loose Water Color Wreath card.  I kept her wreath theme and color combination but used die cut flowers and foliage instead of stamps.  I used Rubbernecker 5106D Mixable Flower Stack, 5109D Mixable Flower Stack, 5112D Mixable Flower Stack, 5147-10D Tiny Flower Buds, 5110D Small Leaf Group and 5027D Nested Square Scallop5027D Nested Square Scallop.  The sentiment is from the 3032 Best Friends set.

Come see how I made this die cut paper flower wreath card.

The Scalloped and Purple Layer

  • Cut the scallop layer using the largest die in the set and white cardstock.
  • Cut the purple square layer 1/4″ larger than scallop layer.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the scalloped layer and attach to the purple layer.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the purple layer and attach to the 5.00″ square card base.

Come see how I made this colorful die cut paper flower wreath card.

Forming The Flowers

  • Cut one full set of each of the 5106D, 5109D and 5112D Mixable Flower Stacks and a set of the Tiny Flower Buds.
  • Place the purple and pink flower sections face down on the molding pad and press down on the petals with the round stylus to curl them.
  • Place the purple and pink flower sections face up on the molding pad and press down in the center with the small tipped stylus to push the petals up.
  • Apply gloss accents to the flower centers and attach the sections together, offsetting the petals for a natural appearance.
  • Use needle nose pliers to curl the petals of the yellow flower sections. Curl some petals backwards and some forward.  
  •  Apply glossy accents to the yellow flower sections and attach them together.

Forming The Foliage Wreath Base

  • Cut several sections of the Small Leaf Group.
  • Apply glossy accents to three of the largest leaf sections and attach them in a secular formation on the white scalloped layer. 

Completing The Die Cut Paper Flower Wreath

  • Attach the three largest flowers over the ends of the three leaf sections using glossy accents.
  • Tuck additional leaf sections under and around the flowers and attach with glossy accents.
  • Attach the smaller flowers to the foliage using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the flower centers and attach pre made white and black Nuvo Crystal Drops. 
  • Stamp the sentiment on a strips of white cardstock using black Versafine and emboss with super fine clear embossing powder. Attach the sentiment inside the wreath opening using mounting tape.

Come see how I made this pretty die cut paper flower wreath card.

I sure appreciate you coming by today and I hope you are inspired to make your own die cut paper flower wreath.  Are you familiar with Splitcoaststampers?  If not you need to hop over and check it out.  I have been a member of this community since 2004 and have learned everything I know about paper crafting from the generosity of the community members.

Summer Wreath with Die Cut Flowers and Foliage

Today I want to share my pretty summer wreath with die cut flowers and foliage.  I love how the green foliage and pink and white flowers pop against the all white background.  The pink organdy multi loop bow adds a touch of softness and additional dimension to the project. The frame was made using the Rubbernecker Square Combo OPC Frame and the wreath base was made using the Nested Circle set. The foliage was made using the Leaf Group and the flowers were made using the Flower Buds.

Come see how I made this pretty summer wreath with die cut flowers and foliage.

 

 

The Foliage Wreath Base and Frames

I started by cutting a circle base for my wreath using two of the smaller dies in the circle set.  Next, I cut several sections of the Leaf Group and cut the branches apart to use to fill in the wreath base.  I began attaching the foliage pieces around the circle base using glossy accents and worked my way around until the foliage base was complete.  You can check out my step by step Wreath Tutorial to see how I make my wreaths.  The frame sections were attached to the card base using strips of mounting tape.

Coloring and Forming the Flowers

I used a mini applicator to apply touches of the Rose ink to the center of each flower but intentionally left the outer petals white to create contrast.  I used my small tipped stylus and molding pad to form each flower.

Come see how I made this lovely summer wreath with die cut flowers and foliage.

Completing the Summer Wreath with Die Cut Flowers and Foliage

The flowers were arranged and attached to the foliage wreath base using glossy accents.  I filled in with lots of flowers all the way around the wreath and left a small space open to attach the multi loop bow.  Once complete I applied glossy accents to the back of the wreath base and attached it to the card base. 

Come see how I made this elegant summer wreath with die cut flowers and foliage.

I really love how the white scalloped frames adds dimension to the card base without distracting from the colorful wreath.  I sure hope you have been inspired to create you own summer wreath with die cut flowers and foliage. Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a wonderful Labor Day holiday.

Die Cut Fall Leaf Wreath Card DTGD Day 3

My project today is a die cut fall leaf wreath card made for Dare To Get Dirty Day 3 of the Splitcoaststampers Dare To Get Dirty week long challenge event. This event is a special thank you to all of the fan club members who support the site all year long. Have you had a desire to be on the Dirty Dozen design team?

If not go here to check out all the benefits of being a member. If you are a member hop right on over the special challenge forum here.

Come see how I made this colorful die cut fall leaf wreath card.

The Frame

The frame was made using the All-in-One Frames Squares 2.  I cut the frames and attached the two largest sections together using double stick tape.  next I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the 5.00″ square card base.

The Wreath Base and Branches

The circle wreath base was cut using Kraft cardstock and the the die from the Wreath Builder set  The branches were cut using the Wide Tree die.  I cut the die three times using Kraft cardstock,  I applied Vintage Photo ink by swiping the pad directly on the branches and wreath circle base and heat dried with my heat gun.   I cut the branch sections apart into smaller branches to use to fill in around the wreath base.

Coloring The Leaves

The leaves were made using white cardstock and the Small Leaf Set.  I cut the leaves out four times to have make sure I had enough to create the wreath.  I used Shabby Shutters, Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink and mini applicators to color the leaves.  Check out my Leaves with Distress Inks tutorial if you would like to see step by step pictures of how I color leaves.  You can also check out my short leaf coloring YouTube video.

Come see how I made this brightly colored die cut fall leaf wreath card.

I start building the wreath by attaching the small branches all the way around the base using glossy accents to completely cover fill it in.  Next I attach a multi loop bow to the base of the wreath using large glue dots.  Once the bow is secure I begin tucking leaves in around the bow and in between the branches and attach them using glossy accents.  The leaves cover most of the branches so I left a section of it open to show them as I think they add so much interest to the arrangement.  I added a touch of shimmer to the leaves using a sparkle pen.  You can check out my Handmade Twiggy Wreath Tutorial if you would like to see a larger version of this wreath.  The tutorial shows using the whole wide tree branch but the concept is the same.  You can see my Multi Loop Bow video if you would like to see how I tied my bow. 

Come see how I made this bright and colorful die cut fall leaf wreath card.

Thanks for coming by today and I hope you enjoyed seeing my die cut fall leaf wreath card.  I had lots of fun making it and I love how it pops against the all white background.
