This month the Page 2 Girls are creating with WRMK Cotton Tail products. Although this set is all about Easter and Spring, I knew I had to squeeze a baby welcome card out of that beautiful chequer paper! Here are my projects for this month:
Card #1 - Welcome Baby
Cut Kraft cardstock 8” x 6”, score and fold. Hand stitch a frame on your Kraft with white embroidery thread.
Cut WRMK Cotton Tail Colour Me Plaid (pink side) to 5 ½” x 3 ½”. Cut WRMK Cotton Tail Colour Me Plaid (chequer side) to 5 ½” x 2 ½”. Cut WRMK Cotton Tail Sweet Spot to 5 ½” x approx ¾” (just enough to get the pink scallop). Ink all three pieces with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. Attach all three pieces together, then attach this to Kraft base inside the embroidered frame. Attach WRMK Cotton Tail Embossed Sticker – chick hatching. Stamp ‘welcome baby’ from Darkroom Door All Occasions Set in Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
Card #2 – Spring has Sprung
Cut Bazzill Walnut 8” x 6”, score, fold, ink edges in Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and set aside.
Cut WRMK Cotton Tail In the Meadow (pattern side) 5 ¾” x 3 ¾” and ink edges with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink. Cut WRMK Cotton Tail In the Meadow (blue side) 5 ¾” x 1 ½” and ink edges with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. Attach the blue piece to the patterned piece and machine stitch the edges and join. Die cut a small dragonfly using Tim Holtz Fanciful Flight die & ink up the wings and body using Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Chipped Sapphire and Shabby Shutters Distress Inks and assemble. Cut out ‘spring has sprung’ tag from WRMK Cotton Tail Sentiments and edge with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.
Attach some seam binding around blue section. Tie a bow in some May Arts Burlap String. Fold a piece of seam binding to make tails. Attach pattern/blue panel to Walnut card base, attach seam binding tails & tag, attach WRMK Cotton Tail Crochet flower and string bow, and finally the butterfly.
Card #3 – Happy Easter
Cut WRMK Cotton Tail Color Me Plaid 2 ¾” x 10” and score at 5” on the wrong side & ½” away from this score line on the right side, and ink edges in Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
Cut WRMK Cotton Tail Sweet Spot (blue side) to 5 ¼” x 2 ¾” and ink edges in Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and attach to inside of card so the scallops are visible on the open side. Punch or cut a circle in the front of the card. Attach WRMK Cotton Tail Embossed Sticker ‘happy easter circle’ to inside so that it is visible through the circle hole.
Attach the ½” section (between the two score lines) to the inner card (so it looks like a bound book). Finally, attach some May Arts Burlap String around the fold.
Post-it Note Folder
Cut WRMK Cotton Tail Sweet Spot to 3 1/8” x 9” (measuring from the scallop edge). From the short straight edge score at 3 3/8”, 3 ¾” and 7 ¾” and ink edges and folds with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
Trim the tulip square image from WRMK Cotton Tail Sentiments (ink edges in Victorian Velvet Distress Ink) and mount on a piece of blue WRMK Cotton Tail In the Meadow (ink edges in Tumbled Glass Distress Ink) and attach to folder front.
Attach the scallop flap to the base just at the fold and add some brads. Attach the post-it note pad to inside.
