Thought I would pop on with a quickie I knocked up yesterday while the kiddies had the compy. It's a Christmas card again, sorry about that. But there are a couple of challenges that are asking for Christmas this week that I wanted to enter. I will list them at the bottom of this post.
I wanted to do a simple card that was really quick to make. My inspiration was from a new challenge blog that a few of my old ex-teamies have started up. Keep It Simple is the name of the Challenge Blog, why don't you pop over and check it out. Their challenges start today! I am going to enter this card there, but ladies - if you don't think these are traditional colours the please delete my entry. Just wanted to show my support in your new venture.
Talking of new ventures - I am having a DT Call over at Delicious Doodles, so if any of you lovely ladies fancy working with my digital images, pop over for all the deets and how to apply!
So, to the card then. A simple white, black and silver combo, not too many layers or too much froo-froo! I used a pearlescent white cardstock, printed out a greeting and trimmed the paper to just a bit smaller than the cardstock. I wrapped some silver fibre stuff round it before sticking down and stickles-ing round the edges.
I printed out my Christmas Tree image in a frame of black dots, cut this out and layered it onto some silver mirri card, which was raised on foam pads. Then I popped a few wee gems in the centre of the snowflakes on the tree. Job done!
OK, so the challenges are:
SCSC - Christmas
Totally Gorjuss - Christmas in August
Totally Papercrafts - CAS
Bee Crafty - Open theme
Wild Orchid - Sparkle
Keep It Simple - Christmas Card with Trad Colours
(is white and silver traditional??)
