World Card Making Day 2021

Last Saturday was "World Card Making Day 2021".  I had planned to have a day of crafting, but you know how things go, life kind of happens so my card making didn't happen.

Sharon Everett of "The Kraft Kabin" had arranged lots of tutorials by different names from the British card making world to provide free live or video tutorials, which she hosted on a Facebook group.

Today, I found time to make a card, loosely following a tutorial by Martine Smith.  I didn't use the products she used, but used some similar from my existing stash.

For the base, I used a Provocraft Cuttlebug embossing folder of holly.  I used the flat side to coat the area in two shades of Distress Oxide Inks:  Antique Linen and Tea Dye.

I then used a Crafters Companion "Script stamp" with Memento "Rhubarb Stalk" red ink.  Next I die cut some holly and fir branches using a Sizzix/Tim Holtz thinlet set (658759).  I found some paper poinsetta flowers and layered them up.

I used a Simon Says Stamp for the "Yuletide Greetings" sentiment and then die cut it into a banner, I then assembled the foliage, flower and greetings together.
