Here's one of the cards we made on Friday night. We had a great time! E-mail me to join us for the next Christmas card class on November 20th!
TUTORIAL: PACKING TAPE AND GLITTER.
Step 1: Stamp images for the top layer of your card.
Step 2, Using the 1 1/4" circle punch, punch out a portion of the image (this part will be colored later).
Step 3: Using the 1 3/8" circle punch, go back and punch around the first punched hole, making it larger (this will produce a small ring, which you can discard or use on another card).
This is what you'll have after you've used both circle punches:
Step 4: Color the image on the piece that has been punched out.
Step 5: Place (but do not adhere) the top layer of the card onto the next layer (in this case, the white piece is the top layer and the gray piece is the next (or second) layer). You're just putting it there so you can see where to correctly put the colored circle back into place.
Step 6: Put adhesive on the back of the punched out (and now colored) circle piece and place it into the back into place, lining up the petals of the poinsettia. Press down on the circle to adhere into place.
Step 7: Lift the top layer, leaving the circle adhered into place
Step 8: Place the top layer face down and place a piece of packing tape over the hole.
(Look closely to see the tape over the hole - sorry it doesn't show so well in the picture).
Step 9: Flip the top piece back over, exposing the sticky side of the packing tape, and sprinkle glitter on the tape.
Step 10: Adhere the top layer to the next layer down.
Finish your card by adhering all the layers together and adding ribbon or other embellishments!
