Good Morning & Happy Wednesday!
My card for today is for our 'Celebrations' challenge this week over on the Cheery Lynn Designs blog, and the lucky winner will recieve a $20 voucher to spend in the online store - brilliant prize! :)
Now I decided to make a Christmas card for our 'Celebrations' theme this week, without using any obvious christmas dies, papers or embellishments just to see if I could still make it look jolly festive! :) lol.
My card base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches, as this Penny Black stamp is quite large and I didnt want to squish it up or cramp it and I coloured the image with PM's
I hand-stitched Memory Box papers to taupe coloured bazzil card and tucked the Anastasia border just underneath to the left. I then layered the Horizon Coved reflection die in contrasting colours and the gorgeous little mini-doily was from the Polynesian Sails die (its a little extra in the middle of the die and so cute! :)) I made the flower in the top right using one of the corners from the Lace Corner Deco D die set and used a pearl brad to hold it together.
The wintry looking flower in the bottom left was made using 4 layers of a 3 leaf die and stamen from the Build a Flower set also held together with a pearl brad.
All dies used on this card are:
I really hope you find time to join in our challenge this week, there is still lots of time to enter and I cant wait to see what everyone is celebrating! :) Dont forget there is always fresh daily inspiration from the rest of the very talented DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration blog too!
