The first day of Holiday Card Workshop 2013 from OnlineCardClasses.com was all about creative insides, so I chose Jennifer’s unique Z-fold card with the extended banner to use as the inspiration for this guy:
To save time on construction, I let my Cameo cut the card base and scalloped circles using a design from the Silhouette Online Store. I didn’t have a winter house stamp, so I chose another design from my library and had my Cameo draw it for me on the smaller scalloped circle using a black sketch pen. Then I colored it in with gel pens and popped this up on top of the larger scalloped circle after coloring its edges using a gold Wink of Stella brush marker. The sentiments were embossed in white on thin strips of patterned paper and the extended banner was lined up on the inside of the card to look like it was part of the outside banner.
I’d love to hear your comments!
