Cabinet Card Pocket

Today's project was made for the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge. For Challenge 15 we are using the cabinet card pocket technique on page 38 of Tim's latest book. Hop over to Studio L3, Linda Ledbetter's blog, for all the details. Inspiration Emporium is sponsoring this challenge with a $50 gift certificate for one lucky entry.

I'm a fan of the Cabinet Card Frames so this challenge was right up my alley. I started with a photo from the newest Found Relatives pack. Once I had my photo in place I added a few embellishments. For the gifts under the tree I adhered patterned paper to chipboard and used the Packages & Bows Die. To dress up each package I used a variety of products in my stash. For the little red package I used Kraft-Core Cardstock, the Assembly Snowman Die, Glossy Accents and Distress Glitter for the topper. Once they were all decorated I adhered them to the card. Thanks for stopping by!

Colored Crackle

Welcome! For today's project I used the colored crackle technique on page 53 in the latest book by Tim Holtz, A Compendium of Curiosities Volume 3. I die cut the window from chipboard and then followed Tim's technique. For the view outside of the window I stamped the pine tree, an older woodblock stamp, on a scrap piece of manila cardstock and added a few snowflake remnant rubs. Next I adhered a little patterned paper, embossed brick and the window to a cabinet card. One holiday card down, a dozen or so to go. Thanks for stopping by!
