Countdown to Christmas #7

Countdown to Christmas #7 is another project from my recent ‘Crack Your Christmas Cards’ Class.

Countdown to Christmas #7. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

The class used the Tag Buffet Stamp Set and the attendees made 16 cards, 4 each of 4 designs.

If you’re a regular reader, you will know that I do like a project with diagonal stripes, so I just had to have one in this class.

Projects with stripes are make your cardstock or DSP go a really long way, plus they are quick and easy to make.

Real Red, Garden Green and Very Vanilla are my colour combination here. I have also used Basic Gray for the sentiment.Countdown to Christmas #7. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

Using just 5 strips and alternating the colours, it looks very festive.

To ensure the card looked balanced, I measured the same distance from the left and right to line up my centre strip. Then worked out from the centre adding my stripes, before cutting off any overhanging pieces.

Don’t forget that these pieces can be used for other projects too.

As not everyone had a punch to shape the ends, they have been cut by hand.

A loop of the pretty Braided Linen Trim sits on top of the stripes. The sentiment then sits on that using Dimensionals.

Finally, some Wonderful Gems are scattered across each strip.Countdown to Christmas #7. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

You can change the colours, sentiment, number of strips, width of the strips, angle and more on these projects.

Why not take a look at the final classes I have left for 2020. Head to my Class Timetable for full details.

Happy crafting
