Bright Lights Blog Hop
Loving the versitilty of this Lawn Fawn die, there’s just so many ways to use it as you will see through this blog hop.
I started with a standard A2 size card, 5½ by 4¼ which I created using red card stock 100lb base.
I then cut two layers of white card stockn down tow 5¼ x 4 , one layer is from 100 lb linin white cardstoc, which is for the top layer of the card and the other was from Bazzill marshmellow cardstock which was the base for the shaker.
I started by die cutting the bulbs from black card stock, I used the largest light bulb and the medium one that would nest in nicely to create the light bulb frame. I also die cut the string and all the accessories to create the whole string of lights
From there I die cut the three light bulbs from the 6x6 lawn fawn Bokeh in the snow pattern paper as well as from the linin card stock. While I had the die cutting machine out I die cut out the Large wreath pieces and all the trimmings from multiple colors of card stock
I adhered the light weight layer of white cardstock on to the red card base, I then took the top layer -which was the linin card stock and layered it over the top, not adhearing it at the moment, I used this as a way to line up the pattern paper light bulbs, I then adheared those to the bottom layer which was attatched to the cardbase. Once that was adhered I was able to start building the shaker, I added the sequins, which happend to be mini iridescent stars and mini cold stars to the middle of the colored light bulbs. I adheard the acetate using be creative tape to the back side of the die cut white white linin panel. After the acetate was added I made the channels for the shaker but outlining the light bulbes with foam tape, and the rest of the panel.
For finishing touches I added the black die cut frames on top of the bulb openings, added the silver little accent to the bulb, the string and on the corners I took the large wreath branches and layered them in the corners to draw your eye toward the center of the card. The sentiment is from an old My favorite things stamp set that I believe is retierd now. I stamped the sentiment with versa mark black onxy ink on to matching red cardstock and cut a banner tail into the strip to finish it off.
Thanks for hoping a long, I hope you found inspiration.
