Hello everyone, it’s Donna Wright here today. I am very pleased to be here again, this time showing you some lovely new dies from Karen’s Farm 2 and merry & bright collections. As there are only 142 sleeps to Christmas I thought I would get you into the Christmas spirit with this adorably grumpy goat.
I used the goat rather than the reindeer you can also get from the Merry & Bright collection as it fitted so nicely with the words Baaa Humbug in the speech bubble from Karen’s accordion rectangle die set.
After applying plain cardstock to a double sided adhesive sheet I cut the goats horns, nose and the blade of the sleigh then sprinkled the pieces with pewter microfine glitter. I used brown patterned paper to cut out the goat overlay and black cardstock for the goats body.
I used a half inch strip of acetate to make it look like the white cardstock speech bubble was suspended in place above the goats head. I hand wrote the Baaaa Humbug with the calligraphy pen I received as a Christmas present. I need to practice cursive writing more!
From the Katie label accordion die set I cut two labels in red card stock, one with double sided adhesive applied to it and one plain. I stuck them together slightly offset and sprinkled red microfine glitter on the lower one. I secured the label in place with one of my coloured mini clothes pegs.
I then cut one piece of patterned Christmas card 12×6 cardstock fold it in half, placed it unfolded on the cutting plate with the gift card holder pop up die in the centre position assembled my cutting sandwich and ran it through the machine. (Watch a video tutorial for the Sleigh Gift Card Holder.)
Using red cardstock I cut one sleigh from the sleigh die set.
After applying red cardstock to double sided adhesive I cut one sleigh overlay die and sprinkled red microfine glitter on it.
I hope you enjoy my tutorial for this quick and easy card…
