This is another one of those little projects I’ve been dying to get to….another punch project, yes but a super fun one – SCROOGE!
I have to admit, most of the punch projects I do have been inspired by others (I just don’t have the patience to do them on my own) but this one is ALL ME (as was yesterday’s).
My starting point for this card was certainly the Scrooge idea but also the Stamping 411 sketch for this week.
The base of this card is Always Artichoke and is layered with Basic Black. The strip across the centre is Always Artichoke and is layered with some Nouveau Chic Designer Paper.
Now for Scrooge – he was placed on a piece of Bashful Blue designer paper which was layered on Always Artichoke. I used Basic Black, Always Artichoke, Basic Gray, Going Gray, Garden Green, Real Red, and Blush Blossom card stock to complete this project.
Face: large oval, 1/4″ circle punch
Hat: small oval
Scarf: small oval, large oval
Body: large tag punch, word window (arms), silver brads
Hair: what else? LEAVES #2 DIE!
I cut the holly leaves by hand and used the smaller punch on my Crop-A-Dile for the holly berries. I drew the face on by hand.
To finish the project off and in keeping with the sketch, I cut out letters with my Naturally Serif Sizzlet strip and cut out the words “BAH HUMBUG” and adhered them along the bottom of the card. Using the Christmas Punch stamp set, I stamped the wide oval saying in Always Artichoke and cut it out around the outline. I then backed it with a wide oval punched out of Real Red cardstock.
Thanks for stopping by!
