Cloth Tree Card
This card is being entered in the Mod Squad Challenge – Frosty the Snowman – where the theme is snowmen. (http://modsquadchallenge.blogspot.com/2014/12/frosty-snowman.html)
This card is also being entered in the Perfectly Rustics Design Challenge No. 37 – Sentiment (Not Birthday). The focus of this challenge is the sentiment on the card, but NO HAPPY BIRTHDAY sentiments are to be used in this challenge! They want us to think outside of the standard (most commonly used sentiment) and come up with something different than Happy Birthday. The “Warm Winter Wishes” sentiment was chosen to go with the “warm” fabrics for the tree, scarf and hat. (http://perfectlyrustics.com/2014/12/01/prdc-37-sentiment-not-birthday/)
This card is also being entered in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Christmas/Holidays – where we are to create a holiday themed project. (http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/wednesdaychallenge/simon-says-christmas/)
The snowman on this card was hand-cut from a piece of corrugated cardstock and inked with Gina K dark chocolate. The hat and scarf were hand-cut from a piece of burlap ribbon, a small bell was added to the end of the hat, and mini button brads were used for the eyes.
To make the tree, I first airbrushed a craft stick with Copic Marker E59. Then I cut plaid fabric in strips, tied them to the stick, and trimmed them to resemble a tree shape. I cut a piece of burlap for the bag at the base of the tree and added a piece of twine. A star (used to make jewelry) was adhered to the top.
I used Gina K dark chocolate card stock, and the patterned card stock is from the DCWV “The Storybook Christmas” stack.
The stamp for the greeting is from the Stampin’ Up “Warm Winter Wishes” set and was stamped with Gina K dark chocolate ink. The matted panel was adhered to a piece of burlap.
Thanks for checking out my card project!
