The first thing that we will do is prepare our paper. We need an A2 base in blue gray cardstock. So, to make the base cut an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock in the middle at the 5-1/2″ mark on the long side. Then take one of those pieces and place on a paper scoring board and score in the middle on the long edge at 4-1/4″. Now, you have a base!
For the other cuts you’ll need:
- Cardstock – Blue, cut to 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
- Cardstock – White, cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″ and 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″
First, emboss the blue cardstock. Using a ruler run the silver gel pen down each side of the embossed cardstock, then create another line a bit from the edge on all sides.
Place the cutting edge of the circle die about 1-1/4″ from the top and about 1″ in from left and right of the white cardstock panel. Place through the embossing machine and remove the center circle. Run the silver gel pen the same as you did with the embossed panel.
With a make up brush sponge the edge of the white panel with Bahama blue ink. Place the dots stencil and rub the same blue ink on it. Reposition the stencil and color in with the silver gel pen.
Stamp the sentiment on a bit of scrap white cardstock in Bahama blue ink and fussy cut. Set aside.
On the scrap white cardstock, trace the circle die and then stamp the Mini Snowflakes one per ink in paradise, blue belle, medieval blue. Mix up the three peg stamps and fill in with morning mist. Place the die in the middle and run through the die machine. Fussy cut around the edge of the wreath.
On that same scrap paper trace the third from the largest die and stamp the Mini Snowflake Stamps one per color in warm breeze, fantasia, and twilight and then do a bit of each stamp in monarch as you fill out the wreath. Die cut the center as you did the first wreath and fussy cut the edge of the wreath.
Line up the centers of the wreath and glue together just at circle. Glue the wreath pieces just at the circle onto the white panel. Wrap the white ribbon up from the bottom of the white cardstock and tape on the back. Glue the sentiment in the center of the ribbon.
Glue a piece of acetate to cover the hole on the back of the white panel. Attach 3-d tape on the back of the white panel all the way around the card, then create a square around the hole to hold the beads.
Now, let’s put the shaker parts together. This is tricky to get good placement. I found the easiest way to do this is to remove the tape backing on one long side and the top and bottom. Place the wreath panel onto the embossed panel, very lightly, not pressing the long side and top and bottom all the way down. We’re hoping to just attach enough together to keep the spacing correct, but with enough room to fill the well with beads. So with the embossed panel being on top, gently pour some beads into the center circle. Then gently pull the backing paper off all the 3-d tape that remains and then adhere the panels together securely.
For the envelope, die cut two circles from the masking paper and apply to the to and from section of the envelope. Stamp whichever stamps you want and whichever inks and cover the entire front of the envelope. Remove the masks and stamp “to” and “from” in the respectable places.
