Advent Calendar Day 4

Well, we're already on Day 4 of the Advent Calendar.  If you're seeing this post for the first time, I am posting one day of the Advent Calendar for the month of October , so the task of creating the calendar isn't so onorous (is that a word?) The links for the Days 1-3 are at the bottom of the post.


Day 4


Stamps: 25 & Counting - Day 4, Any number stamp set

Papers:  Garden Green, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Inks: Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green
Accessories: 1 14" circle punch, 1/2" circle punch.




Method:


  1. Cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock 2 by 2"
  2. Using a 1 1/4" square punch, punch out one piece of Whisper White Card stock
  3. Stamp image using Garden Green ink in the middle of the Whisper White card stock.  Conversely, the image can be stamped then punched out with a 1 1/4" square punch.
  4. Optional: Using different color markers colour each element of the image in different colours i.e. the number 4 in garden green, the presents in cherry cobbler, the star in daffodil delight, and the lines around the stamp garden green.  I did this in a couple of calendars and I like it much better.
  5. Adhere the Whisper White to the  2 by 2" piece of Cherry Cobbler.
  6. Adhere the Cherry Cobbler to the back of the scalloped peek-a-book window
  7. For the lid:  stamp the number 4 in Cherry Cobbler 
  8. Punch out with a 1/2" circle punch
  9. Adhere to a 1" chocolate chip circle
  10. Adhere this to the outside of the window lid
