December's Project Club

This is the card we made in this month's Project Club. The holly is stuck to a layer of acetate which is adhered over the top of the card and underneath 'Celebrate', but as you can see from the photo below we adhered the acetate whilst the card was fold flat on the table. This does curve the back of the card slightly when standing but does allow it to fold flat to go into an envelope. The St Nicholas stamp used is available on our website. The berries were stamped onto the acetate with a Promarker and then covered with red Stickles.

This is Lesley's variation on the theme. Lesley has adhered the acetate inside the front fold which allows the card to stand up straight.

But because the acetate then bulges it is not ideal if you are posting in an envelope - great if you are hand delivering. Lesley has also stamped and embossed directly onto the acetate with Twinkle Embossing Powders.

Both cards have a faux stitched border hand drawn with a Millenium Pen. The amount of people in our classes that complain because they can't draw in a straight line - my answer is always 'this is a handmade card, they are not supposed to be straight lines' and rulers are definitely not allowed.
