Waffle-Flower-Freckled-Fawn-Blog-Hop Hello everyone! Welcome to day 2 of a week long inspiration brought to you by Freckled Fawn and Waffle Flower Crafts! We have simplified the blog hop to two stops - our blog here and the blog of Freckled Fawn. Stop by both of our blogs for inspiration and prizes! We have our very talented design team member: Suzanne Dahlberg here today! wfc-christmas-card-by-suzanne DesignTeamHeadshots-SuzanneDahlberg Hey everyone! It's Suzanne here today with a fun holiday card that I made using Riverside die set, A Homemade Christmas stamp set, and some Pink Dew Drops from Freckled Fawn. I am going to show you the step-by-step of how I went about this, so let's get started! The first step was choosing some coordinating green and blue cardstock for diecutting the tree shapes. I chose a traditional green, along with a pale blue and an aqua blue: tut 1 Next, diecut a bunch of trees in a variety of colors. Having lots handy for embellishing the card is easier than having to go back and forth to the diecutting machine for extras: tut 2 Before gluing anything, you can play with the diecuts until you get a pattern that you are happy with. I started with the largest trees first, and then went in to add the smaller ones later, being sure to alternate colors. This technique works well with a blocked sentiment like this one since it creates a "straight line" one which you can line up the trees. Keep your foam tape nearby to pop up the trees in the front and tweezers handy to make application easy: tut 3 The last step is adding the enamel dots to mimic ornaments - I use tweezers for this too. (Actually I use them so much in my crafting that I have several pairs of tweezers scattered around my craft room!) I tried to balance the colors and sizes of the Dew Drops across the card front. Load 'em up on there! tut 4 wfc-christmas-card-by-suzanne-closeup wfc-christmas-card-by-suzanne-sloseup2 That is officially my first holiday card of the 2014 season!
