2018 Christmas Card Challenge – Card 5

Kaisercraft First Noel – Card 5

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.

Supplies:

Tools:

Preparation:

Tie a medium sized bow from the black satin ribbon.

Cut a three inch circle from the Gold Splatter on Black print. There should be enough left from the page used in the first three cards to do so.

Cut a three inch strip from the Gold Foil Stripe Print and cut it down to fit across the full length of the card base.

Cut a two and a quarter inch strip from the White Spot on Grey Print and cut it down to fit across the full length of the card base.

Cut a one and three quarter inch strip from the White on Gold Spot Print and cut it down to one inch shorter than the full length of the card base.

Cut a banner end into this strip by folding it lightly in half, print side out, and cutting diagonally from the outer corner into the centre.

Assembly:

Adhere the Gold Foil Stripe Print strip vertically and in the centre of the card base.

Layer the White Spot on Grey strip over this one, taking care that it is centred on top of the Gold Foil Stripe piece, and glue it in place.

Centre the White Spot on Gold banner cut piece on top of this, and glue it in place.

Adhere the Gold Splatter on Black circle on the top of all these pieces, leaving enough room at the bottom of the card for both the ribbon bow and the end of the banner strip.

Centre the Large Merry Christmas Wreath Collectable on top of the Gold Splatter circle and glue it in place.

Adhere the black bow in place under the Merry Christmas Wreath. I use Ranger’s Glossy Accents for these sorts of jobs because it sets clear and creates a strong bond.

I struggled, again, to photograph the foil papers,  hopefully you at least can see a hint of the gold foil print background behind the ‘Merry  Christmas’ circle. I’ll keep trying and if all else fails I will just as to stop using foiled papers!

Sit back and admire completed card number 5! Well done you.
