My creative inspiration for the hop, is a holiday card, inspired by one of the most recent die cut releases by Rita Barakat, the Fairy Tales collection.
Upon first seeing the Red Riding Hood die cut, I was inspired to create a "woodsy" themed card.
Why not make it a Christmas card?
And this is how I did it.
I first cut a 6x6 card from heavy cardstock the base.
I decided to layer the background using traditional Christmas colors, green & red. The first layer is a plaid pattern, the top layer, is patterned with little tree's, and very light splatters of white.
I used various sizes of miniature tree cut-outs, left over from a project last Christmas, which were PERFECT for this card. Using Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Squares to attach each tree.
Following the same concept, I used additional squares to add the Red Riding Hood die cut, after lightly gluing a portion of baker's twine in green, to add the tag greeting.
Once all was in place, I used ScraPerfect's
Best Glue Ever to go around the tree's &
Red Riding Hood, followed by some white glitter to add some sparkle to my card.
A perfect, fairytale inspired Christmas card.
How cute is this!
So easy to put together, and made PERFECT
by Rita's ADORABLE die cut!
