So excited today, I am on my way to Birmingham for Onstage, which happens tomorrow and is a big convention for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. So come back on Monday to see some of the photos of the event and the instructions for my swaps 🙂
Every year I make the crackers for us to have at home, this is a much better way of doing them, than the mess of card and crepe paper I used before Stampin’ Up 🙂
Christmas Cracker – Under the Mistletoe Suite – Page 95 Annual Catalogue
Cracker Base – Under the Mistletoe DSP 10” x 6 ½”
Whisper White cardstock 3” x 2”
Simply Scored Scoring Tool
Envelope Punch Board
1 3/8” Scalloped Circle Punch
½” Circle Punch
Mistletoe Season Stamp Set
Memento Black ink
Shaded Spruce Ink
Daffodil Delight Dark Stampin’ Blend
Real Red 3/8” Cotton Ribbon
Tear and Tape
Lay your DSP portrait on the Simply Scored Scoring tool, and score at 1”, 2”, 4”, 5” and 6”. Turn the DSP to landscape and score at 1 ½”, 2”, 2 ½”, 7 ½”, 8” and 8 ½”.
Fold all your scorelines, folding the landscape folds into hills and valleys.
On each valley section, punch a hole using the Envelope Punch Board.
Run a bit of Tear and Tape down the long small section and tape to form a cracker shape.
Tie a piece of ribbon at each end.
Stamp your sentiment on to the piece of Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the 1 3/8” Punch. On the edge of your scalloped circle stamp a fern top and bottom with Shaded Spruce. Attach the scalloped circle to your cracker with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Stamp two bells and colour them with dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and punch out. Affix to the scalloped circle with glue dots.
Until next time.
