Last Wednesday a Product Review about The Ultimate Crafter’s Companion  was posted on Splitcoaststampers. Whenever there is a Product Review we try to include tutorials for the product that is reviewed.

For the Crafter’s companion I wrote tutorials for Dry Embossed edges , Creating Bows and Creating Envelopes with The Ultimate Crafter’s Companion.

My card base is a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of textured Real Red cardstock folded in half. After double embossing a decorative border on the bottom of the card front, I cut around the edge of that border with my scissors. Snowflakes from the Verve set Frosty Flakes were stamped in Fired Brick distress ink over the front of the card front. The edges of the card front were sponged with the same ink.


A 1 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Bo Bunny Paper was taped on a 1/8″ bigger piece of White cardstock and taped on the lower half of the front.  Tiny Twinkles were glued between the the two dry embossed edges. Another strip of different Bo Bunny paper was taped behind the dry embossed edge to add a bit more color.

The sentiment is from Verve’s Christmas is in the Air. It was stamped in Adirondack Espresso Ink, cut with Label 8 Nestabilities and sponged with Adirondack Willow ink. A Chocolate Grosgrain ribbon bow was added to the bottom left of the sentiment layer and a snowflake to the top right. The snowflake outline is from Christmas is in the Air, the inside is from Frosty Flakes and was stamped in Adirondack Aqua Ink. The snowflake was covered with Crystal Effects and then sprinkled with Dazzling Diamond Glitter. A Bo Bunny i candy jewel finishes off the flake.
