Grid Pattern Card

Grid Pattern Card



Hey there, with just over 12 weeks till the big day, I thought another christmas card was in order. I've been a bit slow with them this year so wanted to use a tried and tested technique that I could batch make if i'm pushed for time and inspiration. That's where the Grid Pattern comes in, Basically you line up your images/die cuts in a grid. It's easy and always looks good.



I will be using the Ugly and Bright Stamp  and Die Set from Lawn Fawn. I just love ow adorbale the images are, and as they are small it's easy and quick colouring! I stamped out 3 of each of my chosen Jumpers and coloured them using non traditional Christmas colours. I then cut them with the matching die.



I cut a piece of Teal card using a large Stitched Rectangle, I then embossed a piece of white card using the Buffalo Plaid 3D embossing folder. I then trimmed this to measure 9.5 by 13cm. I always cut embossed card to size after embossing as the pattern can warp the dimensions of the cardstock and you end up with wonky panels.


I adhered the embossed panel to the teal rectangle and then set about working on the sentiment. I chose to white heat emboss onto black card using Lawn Fawn's White Embossing Powder. I then used a Pretext Banner Die to cut it. All that was left to do was add all the elements to the embossed panel.



I started by adding the sentiment banner in the centre of the card using black foam tape. I then decided on the order of the images, as two sets were mainly pink I decided to keep them apart by placing them at the top and bottom. I started by adding the centre images and the added the ones to either side, this helps to keep them spaced evenly. I also chose to use silicone glue for this, it gives height, wiggle time and works well on the embossed bakground.
