Hi there - just letting you know that there is another Challenge over at CCAYR this month and the theme is Christmas Ornaments! Yup I know it is only April but as I've said (many times before ... sorry) you can't start early enough making your Christmas cards - especially when you have loads to do. This is one that I will probably hand deliver and not trust to the Royal Mail - bless!
The bauble is a die from Couture Creations, which is a favourite, and the poinsettia is a Spellbinders one which I cut out several times in parchment, adding some opaque white seed beads to the centres of each one. I decided against using yellow because I wanted to keep the card red and white with a hint of gold for the sentiment and the top of the bauble. The other dies are listed below.
7" x 7" white card - Anna Marie Designs
Holly Jolly Christmas Collection die - Couture Creations Dies
Layered Poinsettia die - Spellbinders Dies
Pine Needle Border die - Memory Box Dies
Giovanna Snowflake die - Memory Box Dies
Happy Christmas sentiment die - Cheery Lynn Dies
Holly Flourish Emb. Folder - Tattered Lace Folders
Ribbon, Beads, Glitter - Stash
I hope you can join us over at CCAYR and enter a card or three into our Challenge - not only will you have some Christmas cards in your stand by pile but you could also win the challenge! This month we are being sponsored by Dee Dee's Digis
Must be orf now as this post is being scheduled and I want to watch a programme called 'Code of a Killer' about the man who discovered DNA fingerprinting. These and medical programmes all fascinate me - might tell you about my Op. Theatre experience one day.
Catch you again soon with another card for a DT challenge!
Loads of hugs to you all and please take care.
I would like to enter my card into the following 10 challenges -
