Festive Friday #0116- Grandparent's Day - Sweetest Christmas

Woohoo Another Festive Friday Challenge!

Screen Shot 2022-08-15 at 6.57.39 AM

Welcome to the Festive Friday #0116 Grandparents Day. 

Festive Friday Badge used to link

This year, it is September 11/22.  It is a day that helps people celebrate the connections we share with older generations.  I truly believe that it is Grandparents day everyday.  

Here is the Inspo list for Grandparent's Day.

The goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project and link up! #festivefridaychallenge  At Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion. I hope you’ll make a card, scrapbook page or 3-D project and join us. You don’t need a blog to enter Festive Friday. Check out this link on how you can play along with this challenge.  If you want help entering, please email me at [email protected] and I’d be happy to help you!  Again, your entry doesn’t have to have anything to do with Grandparent's Day.   I picked some items from the Inspo list and just started creating.

Here is my Card.  I used the Sweetest Christmas Suite.  I was struggling with some of the items on the list.  I wanted to try this Accordion Pocket Fold Card and the only thing that I had with Candy on it was the Candy Canes,   The items that I used was:  Sweets/Candy, Fancy Fold and Pearls. I will be sure to include the supply list below.

The video gives the measurements and how to score and cut.  The measurements for easy reference are:

Basic White Thick: 5 1/2" x 11" scored @ 4 1/4", 5 1/2"6 3/4"

Basic White: 2" x 4" for Tag, 2 3/4" circle, 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" for Banner

Real Red: 4" x 5 1/4", 2" x 4" for Tag

Garden Green:2" x  4" for greenery die cuts

Sweetest Christmas DSP: 2 @ 1" x 5 1/4", 2 @ 4" x 5 1/4", cut out candy Canes

As I said above, the video gives you the extra scoring and cutting instructions.
