Day 1...

Welcome to the beginning of the Queen Kat Designs version of 12 royal days of Christmas. We will take you through Christmas Eve with fun and inspiring projects. Nikki and I have created 12 fun and exciting cards, tags and ornaments for you. Each of these projects can easily be transformed into other occasions, themes and colors. Make sure you print out the info we're about to share with you for your technique/idea folder. :) I will share 6 projects on my blog and Nikki will share 6 on hers. They will all be shared day by day on the QKD Blog!

So.. with out further adieu... Here's day 1's card for you. It was made by me..
For this card you will need:
1 card base (4.25" X 5.5" folded)
3 different patterned papers
1 plain cardstock
2 colors of dye ink pads
ribbon tied into a small knot
Nestabilities- Round Scallop (you can also use nested punches)
Die Cut Machine
pop dots

Step 1: Cut 2 pieces of patterned paper to 5.5" X 2.18" and adhere them to the card base vertically.

Step 2: Cut 3 circles with your nesties or punches. Stamp on the top circle. I used the snowflake stamps from the December kit of the month from QKD.

Step 3: Stamp a sentiment onto plain cardstock and mat with patterned paper.

Step 4: Using pop dots, adhere the circle and rectangle onto the card and add ribbon.

Below is the sketch I used for the idea on this card. Feel free to use the sketch over and over. :)

How easy was that?? I hope you've enjoyed this card. See you tomorrow @ Nikki's Blog.

Paper used on this card was Cosmo Cricket: Oh Joy Christmas paper from the QKD December Royal Kit.
