Guest Designer - Gail Scott

Time for another guest design spot here on the Cropstop blog. Today's guest is none other than Gail Scott of I Like Paper. Gail is one of our most faithful followers and participants, I can always count on the her to get things started each month! I think Gail was trying to give us a break from the summer heat when she created her lovely Christmas card with it's beautiful Petaloo flower!

Here's what Gail says about putting this lovely piece together:

I started my project with a cut of Kraft Cardstock for my base. I ran the Kraft through my Cuttlebug Die Cutting & Embossing Machine using Tattered Edge Darcie Embossing Folder. Next,  Tim Holtz Gathered Twigs Distress ink was sponge around the embossing using a Dauber.  I won a set of  Couture Creations Ornamental Lace Die so I selected the largest one and white cardstock. I  ran them through the Cuttlebug Die Cutting Machine to create a base for the Petaloo Poinsettia [there are other flowers available at Crop Stop - I am thinking this one is out right now]. Scotch Quick Dry White glue was used to glue the Poinsettia to the Lace Die Cut.
I used my ATG to place the burlap on the card base and then used Scotch Quick Dry Glue to adhere the Petaloo Flower and Couture die assembly. 
I found some cool Kraft Striped cardstock in my stash and used that to run the Poppy Stamps Joy Tag through my Cuttlebug.  Next I used my Dauber to add Tim Holtz  Fire Brick Distress Ink around the edge of tag and on the Word Joy.

I attached the Tag with a tiny red safety pin. A metal charm was attached to the tag using Hemp Cord. I fussy cut a piece of white cardstock for the snow then added two Brads - A snowman and a Tree to the tag.

My ATG was used to attach the finished base to White Cardstock."
