Santa's List...

'Santa's List' provided by QKR Stampede
I know, I know, I know!  It's July!  But Aud Sentiments is having a Challenge for "Christmas in July"!  It is inspired by those of us who reach December and panic with having to decorate, make all our cards, make gifts, prepare for guests... oh my!  I am breaking out in a sweat just thinking about it.  So there you have it!  One card done!  LOL!


You can check out the wonderful Christmas projects made by the other DT and get the details of the prizes offered by the two sponsors at the Aud Sentiments Blog.

[Note: specific information on supplies and sources will be found below under “Supplies”.]

  • Used A2 size card in a 'Z' fold
  • The punched border was adhered to the back of the front panel which has been embossed with a 'Swirl' Cuttlebug E-folder. The inside panel is embossed with 'Dots'.
  • The focal panel and the sentiment are both matted on white and adhered to the front panel.
  • I used a "Paper Sculpting" Technique that consists of: coloring with Copics, fussy cutting different elements of the image, sculpting the individual pieces from the back using a large ball tool and then elevating each with foam tape to maintain the dimension.
  • The inside reads: "Need a hug?"
