I know you are all just getting over Christmas, relieved that you managed to get all your cards made, written, stamped and posted by the deadline ... but here I am back with my first Christmas card for 2017!
I'm thrilled to say I'm now a member of the Christmas Card Throwdown design team.
If you struggled to get all your cards done in time last year - we're here to help. Pop over and see what the talented team have come up with.
There will be two challenges a month, each lasting for two weeks. This time it's sketch:
Here is my card:
|This picture is doing funny things to my eyes, sometimes it looks de-bossed. It isn't!|
I haven't gone too mad with the glitter yet, I'll ease you in gently. I love Christmas greenery so that is what I chose.
I was rummaging for something to frame the embossing, I fancied gold but this was the nearest I had - a bit of an envelope! I worked perfectly, it is very thin so doesn't add too much weight or thickness. It wasn't quite big enough for mat so I cut four strips and used these corner dies to link them all together.
Leane Creatif dies - 'Holly leaves and pine branches' and 'Ivy swirl'
JustRite corner dies- 'card front basic dies'
Adirondak meadow ink.
Sissix embossing folder - sorry I don't know the name.
Sentiment - Crafty Impressions
A bit of ribbon salvaged from a cracker.
I hope I haven't scared you. It's a nice easy sketch so have fun and link up with us.
