I am rather sad as she is my best friend, moving to north Wales and I live in the south west. No more quick meetings for lunch or coffee. I may be wandering round the playground looking for new friends.
Here is the card I made:
I need to give credit here as I was struggling to fit the sentiment on the card. It was too long and I had stamped it bout 17 different ways when I saw this card in the playground and ding, that was the answer. It is still not quite perfect and I wish I'd angled it slightly differently but I was tired of stamping it.
I used snippets for the houses and sentiment and then found this paper which, I hope you agree, matches nicely. The ribbon is also a snippet and the card base is pre-loved and discarded. So I am hopping over to Pixie's Snippets Playground with this one.
So then at Merry Monday it is a One Layer Card challenge.
Often a challenge. Sometimes I can do one layer with no trouble and luckily this was one of those days.
I have unashamedly copied the layout of Nina from the Design Team's card. Thank you for the inspiration.
I drew a faint pencil line to make sure I stamped the house vertically. I coloured it with Pro-markers,leaving the roof white and added Stickles for glittery snow.
I bravely drew the black line around with a glitter gel pen and then drew a second which looks deckled so there is a frame for the house. I could have ruined it all but a shaky hand and a ruler did the job.
Please be impressed by the teeny, tiny wreath stamped with a teeny tiny flower stamp which came in the set. Again without the aid of a safety net.
I'd like to link this one to the Merry Monday challenge and the first Rudolf Days challenge of 2016 - always a Christmas card or project.
So, two very different cards from one set. I am very pleased with the stamps. I hope you like them too.
