December meeting make-n-takes
I had our annual December Holiday Party/Meeting for my downline yesterday. We enjoyed a potluck lunch of Honey Baked Ham, Marcia’s “funeral potatoes”, mashed potatoes and gravy, cooked cabbage, salad, veggies, gingerbread, cookies, and pies, oh my! After lunch, we chatted about SU! promotions, viewed some of the new products from the Occasions Mini, shared some projects we’d been working on, had a gift exchange, raffle and card swap. Even with all that, we still had time for a couple of make-n-takes:
This one uses the new “Petal Cone” die from the Occasions Mini catalog. I wheeled the “Sparkle and Shine” jumbo wheel across both sides of the Garden Green cardstock using Garden Green ink. The die also gives you these scalloped half circles that fit under the flaps. I gently folded the scallops up so they wouldn’t “fight” each other where they meet at the top. I used Dimensionals to hold the flaps down but they had popped open this morning. I’m going to try Sticky Strip and see if that holds better. I used Crystal Effects to add the Silver Chunky Glass Glitter around the flaps. 1/4″ Red Grosgrain ribbon is added for a handle to hang on the tree.
This card uses the new “Fun Flowers” die, “Framed Tulips” embossing folder and “Springtime Vintage” Designer Series Paper – all from the new Occasions Mini catalog (you can order these products beginning Jan 4th
