2018 Christmas Card Challenge – Card 4

Kaisercraft First Noel – Card 4

Supplies:

For the basic supplies used to make the cards in the series, and to see the instructions for card 1, please refer to post one here.

  • Kaisercraft Square Black Card Base
  • Christmas Stocking String Collectable from Kaisercraft First Noel Collectables
  • The Gold Foil paper circle negative cut when making card 1
  • ‘May the Gifts of Christmas be Better than Socks’ Sentiment from the Creative & Somewhat Useful download available here
  • Adhesive tape or glue

Tools:

Preparation:

Cut a four inch strip from the Grey and White Present Print in the First Noel 6×6 inch Paper Pad.

Trim the Gold Foil strip, with the circle negative in it from Card 1, so if fits the card base.

Cut out the ‘Better than Socks’ sentiment, using either a die or a paper trimmer. I’ve cut mine to about three and a half by 1 and half inches.

Fussy cut the presents from the Foiled Present Print in the First Noel 6×6 inch Paper Pad. You could use the presents from the Collectable set, but I found these to be too big for this design.

Assembly:

Adhere the Grey and White Present Print strip to the centre of the black card base.

Glue the Gold Foil strip over the Grey and White Present Print strip. Take care not to smear the glue inside the circle, it leaves a mark – ugh.

Position the Christmas Stocking String Collectable inside the Gold Foil circle. I like it diagonally as shown, #2 Son liked it straight across the centre top. Put it where YOU like it.

Adhere the ‘Better than Socks’ sentiment strip across the bottom of the circle, aligned with the right-hand side of the Gold Foil strip.

Position the fussy cut presents along the left-hand side of the sentiment strip – you can imagine how much discussion there was about where to put those! Please feel free to use your own judgement.

This card must be the most photographed thing I have ever made – oh boy does that gold foil paper mess with the camera! I think there were about 756 goes at getting a passable image – my photography skills are a work in progress!

Sit back and admire completed card number 4! Well done you.
