Welcome to the November Control Freaks Blog Hop. This month's theme is Happy Holidays. I'm sure you'll be inspired by the wonderful projects you'll see.
You may have just arrived or maybe you've come from Kelly's blog. She is so creative and amazing!
First I'll share one of the cards we made at my Card Clubs this month. It's a spinner card using the Seasonal Chums bundle. These little characters are adorable and so fun to color in with our new, incredible Blends alcohol markers. And one of the best things about this set is that it comes in a bundle with a set of coordinating framelits. No fussy cutting!
My colors here are Real Red, Whisper White, Garden Green and Sahara Sand. I used the Ovals Collection framelits to cut out the window for the spinner. To make it spin, just wind the snowman or reindeer up and close the card. When they open it up it spins!
That adorable little scalloped tag and Green holly leaves are also included in the framelits. The White circle is our 1" punch and the little berries are from the Cookie Cutter Builder punch. The tree die-cuts are from the Card Front Builder dies.
I've created a video tutorial on making this fun card. Stop in later this week!
Next I have a gift card box I created for a Relay for Life craft show I participated in this weekend. It's super simple and you can whip quite a few up in no time!
I used the Tags & Trimmings stamp set in the Holiday catalog for the cute greeting. Isn't is perfect for a gift card!? The new Everyday Label punch fits the greeting nicely. I punched a second Real Red Label punch and cut it in half to get the Red border.
I kept the colors to traditional Real Red and Garden Green here to coordinate with the Quilted Christmas designer paper from the Holiday catalog.
I've drawn up an easy template for you. Start out with a piece of Red CS measuring 4" X 6 1/4". Score at 1/4" along each long side. Then at 1 1/2, 1 3/4", 4" & 4 1/4" on the short sides. Remove the areas with the X's. Use a corner rounder or the Envelope Punch Board to round your corners.
The designer paper on the flap is 1 1/4" X 3 1/4" and the belly band is 3/4" X 5 1/2".
