Masculine Gift Bag and Card using A Good Man - Video Tutorial


Hi There!

In today's Video you get two projects for one! The main focus is this fabulous Gift Bag ... but I also show you how to create the coordinating card.


The paper is from the Come Sail Away 12" Designer Series paper pack. I wanted to create something with this beautiful Mossy Meadow stripe ... and so my project was born! :o)


The Gift Bag is a great size. It's 8" tall, 3¾” wide and 2" deep - a really great size for your gifts!


I was very careful when scoring my paper for the Gift Bag and was able to save a strip of it for my card - I show you how to do this in the Video. 


The images were stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with the Stampin' Blends Alcohol markers. Of course the fabulous image is from the A Good Man stamp set.

I also show you how I made the sentiment strip smaller than the actual die I used - super easy! 

Here is the Video ...




Measurements


Gift Bag:

Come Sail Away DSP                                              30.5cm x 30.5cm   (12” x 12”)

Check your pattern orientation and score the Base and Lid lines first:

Score at 2” and 10”

Turn the paper so that the pattern is running vertically with the BASE score line at the TOP of the score board and the LID score line at the BOTTOM of the score board (i.e. the pattern should be upside down on the board).

Score at ½”,  4¼”, 6¼and 10”

NOTE: The 6¼and 10” lines should go through the 1st horizontal score line but stop at the 2nd.


Card:

Note:If you use A4 as your standard sheet of card – follow the metric measurements (cms).
If you use 8½” x 11” as your standard sheet of card – follow all the imperial measurements (inches).

Mossy Meadow card base                                ½ an A4 standard sheet of card
                                                                                                              (US 8½” x 11”)

Free As A Bird - Patchwork Card - Video Tutorial



Today's Video will show you how I created these lovely Patchwork cards :o)


I've been playing with my Free As A Bird stamp set and Bird Ballad paper :o) So much so that I had a pile of small scrappy bits saved that I didn't want to throw away - this paper is just too gorgeous!

So .... my card was born. The inspiration came from a design layout over at Pagemaps. 



I dug out my Basic Black marker and had a play with some faux stitching .... it's been a while since I did this! 

This card was my first attempt at colouring these super sweet birds on a branch. I had to cut one off ... but I managed to save him, so will no doubt use him on another card somehow ... somewhen :o) 



This is the card I create in the Video. 

I changed the main colour for this one, switching from the Pool Party to Daffodil Delight. The flowers this time were Calypso Coral - in the first card they were Petal Pink.


 The sentiment was cut out using one of the Smooth Sailing dies.

Here is the Video ...




Measurements

Note: If you use A4 as your standard sheet of card – follow all the metric measurements (cms).
If you use 8½” x 11” as your standard sheet of card – follow all the imperial measurements (inches).

Basic Black card base                                                  ½ an A4 standard sheet of card
                                                                                                                        (US 8½” x 11”)
Whisper White (inside)                                               14.4cm x 10cm        (US 5¼x 4”)
Daffodil Delight                                                           14.4cm x 10cm        (US 5¼x 4”)

Whisper White                                                            14.4cm x 10cm        (US 5¼x 4”)
   ... trimmed after adding the Patchwork to …         14cm x 9.6cm          (US 5x 3”)


You will need more Whisper White, Daffodil Delight and Basic Black card for stamping and die cutting. You will also need ‘scraps’ of the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to create your Patchwork.
