Welcome to my castle. I hope you are enjoying the tour so far. Princesses have come from Kingdoms everywhere and there is so much to see!!
For thy tour of my castle, I chose to do projects using "A Cardinal Christmas". Very fitting for a castle, don't you think?? :) The first project I have to show you is an altered frame. I decorated the frame using the luscious Deck The Halls Designer Series Paper. I added the cardinal image to the frame using Stampin' Dimensionals over the stamped branch and matted the verse and mounted it where the photo would normally go. I think it turned out beautiful:
Here is a closer look at the cardinal (I apologize for the color variance, the lighting is not the best in a castle tower):
For my next project, I decided to make a set of cards and wanted a cute little holder to store them in. I went to the pattern dungeon and pulled out some ideas. I altered this a bit to fit my cards as they are layered with dimensionals and came up with this:
Of course I had to use my Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. My loyal subjects would expect nothing less :) They are well aware that it is my favorite!! LOL! The full set of cards is revealed when the folder is opened:
The cards show much more detail with a close-up. The cards and folder have a vintage look because they have been around the castle for quite some time:
I finished off the inside of each card using the beautiful verse that comes in the stamp set:
I really must be giving these away so they do not start looking any older. So, I will offer them along with the frame as BLOG CANDY!!!
