The challenge over at the Bah Humbug Blog this week, is Crackers. I was a bit stumped at first, but I googled cracker templates. I downloaded a template that I liked, and decided to make a cracker and matching Christmas card.
I decided to go for a Kraft and red colour scheme, which was a nice warm blend of colours, and threw a little bit of green in there too. I stamped a swirly Elusive Images background onto brown wrapping paper for the cracker itself, and thicker Kraft card for my actual card. I made a couple of Poinsettias from sticky backed canvas mounted onto Grungepaper, after I had sprayed it with Adirondack colour wash sprays. I fixed the layers together with large brads, curling them a little bit. I used an Elusive Images sentiment for my card, and cut out a piece of cream card, using an oval Nestability. To get a fine mount for this, I drew around the same Nestability onto my red card, and cut this out by hand. I use the small curvy parchment scissors, which are great for cutting curves.
