I have been busy today with crocheting squares for the upcoming International Yarnbombing Day on Thursday and haven’t had a chance to do paper crafting today. So I have picked a card I did a couple of weeks ago.
I hope you all had a good Christmas. I had a lovely relaxing day and I am now getting back into crafting.
I normally use only CTMH products but the local Spotlight store had a special on Kaisercraft wood kitsets so I bought a few to have a play with. Apart from the kitset and mod podge everything else I have used in these projects is CTMH.
I love the CTMH papers and the Yuletide Carol papers are just gorgeous and I felt fitted well with this advent calendar. I have tried to create a picture of a living room with the stockings hung by the tree and the parcels waiting to be opened. I have sponged all the edges with Desert Sand ink and I love how the wood has turned into an antique gold colour. I have cut out the centre from the patterned paper and lined it up so that it would be the centre of the box. I used the red patterned paper to line the boxes (there are a number of You Tube videos that show you how) and after sponging the edges with Desert Sand ink I modpodged them all. The numbers came with the pack and I have sponged them all with Desert Sand ink and then using Liquid Glass adhered them to the front of the little boxes. The Christmas tree has been cut in 3 sizes from the Artbooking Cricut cartridge in the green paper from the Yuletide Carol paper pack, and I have adhered them with foam tape to try and create some dimension. The boxes have been made from the Artiste cartridge and I have tied them up with the metallic bakers twine. The Santa is from the Yuletide Carol Complements that I have stuck onto some White Colonial cardstock and cut out. I used tabs of Colonial White cardstock to adhere to the box. The Merry Christmas is from the Artiste cartridge.
Here is another kitset this time featuring a bird on a cage.
