Please refer to my Card A for the One Sheet Wonder pattern and cutting instructions following Rebecca’s pattern. For some reason, I can’t get to Rebecca’s page. Here are her cards on Pinterest – maybe you will have better luck! Now on to Card B or the 2nd card of 5.
One Sheet Wonder Card B – Tidings:
Prepare card by cutting white cardstock at 5-1/2” x 8-1/2”. Fold in half to create a top fold card – a bone folder gives you a crisp fold. Ink and stamp off with the snowflake stamp using Crumb Cake ink. Use the thicker branch stamp and stamp at the top left corner using Mossy Meadow ink. Stamp and sign the back. Set aside.
Remember the writing tablet? Perfect for the inside of cards. Fold a piece in half.
Stamp a phrase and over stamp with an image. Adhere to inside of the card.
Cut a flag on one end of each of the ½” wide DSP strips with the Banner punch.
Starting at the right side of the card, adhere strip at 3/8” away from edge. Glue second strip 3/8” away from the first strip. Finish the other two strips the same distance apart.
Ink the holly and berries stamp with Mossy Meadow ink. Apply under each flag as shown above. Set aside.
Stamp phrase on white cardstock using Cherry Cobbler ink. Use the template to cut to the right size. Adhere to Mossy Meadow panel cut ¼” bigger than the phrase or at least 2” x 2-3/4”. Trim if necessary. Adhere to the card front. Set aside.
Die cut 2 small pine branches from Mossy Meadow cardstock and one berries from Crumb Cake cardstock. Die cut two pine cone fronts and two pine cone backs from Crumb Cake cardstock. Sandwich is: Magnetic platform – cutting pad - cardstock – wax paper - die with cutting blade down – cutting pad. Ink half of the fronts of the pine cones with Versamark. Heat emboss with white embossing powder - quit embossing the minute it is melted to avoid burning. Repeat for the other half. By doing it this way, you have something to hold on to when heat embossing. I re-inked and heat embossed a second time so that the embossing powder was nice and thick. Adhere the backs of the cones to the fronts using the fine tip glue pen.
Adhere pine cones and branches to the card front in a pleasing manner.
Cut Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine at 7”. Tie into a bow with my bow maker that hubby made for me.
Trim ends. Thread two green bells with 6” of gold metallic thread and tie on to the bow. Glue bow to the top of the pine cones. Tuck the stem of the berries under the pine cones – you may need to rip some of the stem and berries off to make it fit. Add Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details to each of the berries under the flags and to the berries under the pine cones – may need to re-apply once it dries.
Make an envelope using the envelope punch board. Decorate with stamp images.
