MCT 12 Days of Christmas - Day 6


Welcome to the My Creative Time "12 Days of Christmas"!  You are in for a lot of fun for these twelve days - daily projects by Emma and the design team, along with some fabulous prizes celebrating Emma's one year anniversary!  If you arrived here from Jeanne,  then you are headed in the right direction.  If not, please start at Emma's blog here.

Today I have a pretty simple card for you that is flat and easy to mail.  It's an A7 size card, so the base is cut at 10" x 7 1/8", scored at 5".  The brown layer is 4 3/4" x 6 7/8", and the patterned layer is cut at 4 1/2" x 6 5/8".  The beautiful branch is from the Cricut Winter Woodland cartridge, cut at 2 1/2".


The reason I made this card on a larger scale is because of the intricacy of the gorgeous ornaments.  They are from the Christmas Solutions cartridge, which was one of the free downloads to they Gypsy last year.  I cut this red one at 2 1/2", and the purple one is cut at 3".  To attach them to the branch, I used some embroidery floss.


For my sentiment, I die cut a banner from Emma's Build a Banner Kit and stamped it with a sentiment from her All Around Christmas stamp set.

Recipe:

Papertrey Ink Ripe Avocado & Dark Chocolate Cardstock
Close to My Heart "Typeset" Patterned Paper
Core'dinations Textured Cardstock
DCWV "The Metallic Stack"
My Creative Time "Build a Banner Kit"
My Creative Time "All Around Christmas" Stamp Set
Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate Ink
Tim Holtz Distress Ink
DMC Embroidery Floss
