October Challenge - A Very Krista Christmas!


Welcome my crafty friends!

Once again it is time for Elizabeth Craft Designs Team Designer Challenge.  Be sure to check out the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog to see what all the designers have created for this challenge.

Our challenge for October is A Merry Krista Christmas.  We are using stamps and coordinating dies from Krista Schneider's new release for this challenge.

The question of this month:

Which of the new Krista Schneider stamp sets would you use to create a Christmas card.

Here is how I created my card.

Step 1   Form card base 4-1/4" X 5-1/2" card base using white Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step 2  Cut white Soft Finish Cardstock 4" X 5-1/4" add Clear Double Sided Adhesive to top.  Remove protective covering a little at a time pouring Periwinkle Silk Microfine Glitter over exposed adhesive once covered with glitter tap off excess glitter polish with fingers.

Step 3  Using curved die From Joset Designs Sliders and Spinners place cutting edge down on glittered cardstock approximately 1/2" in from left edge 1-1/4" up from bottom right end should be approximately 1-1/4" down from top - die cut slot.

Step 4  Lay glittered piece in position on card front lightly trace the arch remove glittered piece add piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive which is cut slightly larger that slot use Periwinkle Silk Microfine Glitter cover area on card front tap off excess polish in with fingers (by glittering this area it will be almost look seamless).

Step 5  Cut white Soft Finish Cardstock 1" X 4" add Clear Double Sided Adhesive on top using Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter pour over exposed adhesive tap off excess then polish with fingers.   Tear lengthwise to give snowbank effect.  Adhere to bottom of larger glittered piece.

Step 6  Using moon die from new Krista Schneider Reindeer set cut 1 moon from white Soft Finish Cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on top.  Remove protective covering add Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter tap off excess polish in with fingers. Color with yellow alcohol marker.  Adhere to upper right corner of glittered cardstock using Kids Choice Glue (I think it sticks better to glittered surface).

Step 7  From red cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on top die cut Suzanne Cannon's new Merry Christmas - small remove protective covering add True Red Microfine Glitter tap off excess polish in with fingers adhere to glittered cardstock piece lower right corner using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 8  Using Krista Schneider's new Reindeer Clear Stamps and Dies stamp reindeer using black ink compatible with alcohol markers on white Soft Finish Cardstock die cut using coordinating die set.  Color using alcohol markers.

Step 9  Cut 1/2" - 3/4" circle from white cardstock add 2 dimensional dots one on top of other.  Add dimensional tape on back of glittered piece being sure to stay away from slot as you want your reindeer to slide freely.  Place circle with pop dots behind glittered paper making sure the pop dots come up through the slot.  Adhere glittered cardstock to card front keeping pop dots aligned in slot.

Step 10  remove protective covering from top pop dot adhere your reindeer onto it.

I do hope you have enjoyed my tutorial today!
