Craft Barn Xmas Club makes


Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend. I've realised that I have a few Craft Barn Christmas club projects that I haven't shared yet and this first set of makes involved making backgrounds with gelato sticks, gold leaf and stencils and then creating flip-it cards, gift boxes and rosettes.

I used Woodware Stamps stamping with gold ink and also with sticky glue to add mega gold flake and I also used the flake through the Tim Holtz harlequin diamond stencil.

For the boxes I used a Sizzix matchbox die to make the box from plain gelato coloured card and then uses the stencilled pieces for decorative bands.

Gelato's are great with stencils, you can push the colour through them or colour the card and then take colour out through the stencil or do a mixture.

The Rosettes are made from coloured printer paper and I added a gem Brad coloured with alcohol ink to hold the pieces together.

Back soon,
