Red, White and Blue


Hi there, my team mates over at Get Inky! are feeling rather patriotic lately and are posting their versions of the current challenge: Red, White, and Blue.  Here is my twist on the project.

I made a Victorian style inspired lace and paper cone which holds candies and a sentiment for the recipient.  So it is like a gift and a card in one.

To make the cone I simply took a double sided sheet of scrapbook paper which I trimmed down to an 8 inch square.  I drew the top of a heart in the upper right hand corner to make the scallops.  I trimmed the paper and put double sided tape along the left side straight edge.  I shaped the paper into a cone and pressed down the opposite side to the taped side.  I used a Doily about 8 " also and cut out the ;ace outer ring.  By using a tacky glue on the inside of the cone and by slightly pleating the doily lace, i glued the lace to the inside top portion of the cone.  Using a stapler and staples I affixed the tri colour ribbon to the top to act as a handle.  with a piece of the doily centre I covered the base of the cone by gluing the white paper over the red paper.

The front panel was made with white cardstock and a Stampin' Up! Sizzix Big Label Die cut.  I had printed the Buzzing Bees Get Inky! by Blue Moon Creation digital on the card stock first.  Afterwards I used Scor-Tape and extra fine micro glitter by Elizabeth Designs Monochromatic in warm tones.  Finally, I coloured using some alcohol based markers.

I hope you enjoy.  Please visit the Get Inky! blog where I am on the Design Team and see other examples.

I am also entering this card/cone in the Red, White and Blue challenge at ABC Challenges, the Stamping Dragon., and Created With Love.
