I hope you're liking our new look at Get Funky and Craft; Anice started the ball rolling on Wednesday, and here I am with the weekend post. Allison will be along on Wednesday with more papercrafting inspiration for you. Here is the card I've made for my brother and his girlfriend this Christmas:
I've used the wordbook download Christmas Tree and
simply printed out the letters I wanted onto thick card (I think its
240gsm) and then put the card back into the printer and added one of the
plain colours from the backing paper collection so that the 'pages' are not blank on the back.
then cut round each letter and layered them up so that you can see each
letter. I then cut each page so that it lined up as a book would at
the spine. I used a corner rounder punch to keep it looking nice and
then added red glitter glue around the edge of each letter (it's
Christmas after all!) and finally simply glued each page together and
when once dry, I scored so that each page can be opened.
word 'bells' has been cut with a Sizzix alphabet die - Round-A-Bout and
I've used some of the offcuts of card from the wordbook letters and
then went to town with some green glitter glue!
finish it all off, I found some green satin ribbon in my stash but not
enough to make a fancy bow, so I threaded some red, gold, and green
jingling bells onto some thin red ribbon and tied it all together.
If you're wondering just how big this card is and if it will fit in a normal envelope, then wonder no more as you can buy wordbook envelopes to fit!
