Hi there. After quite a few days without posting, I have a couple of cards for you today. There is a new challenge starting at Cardz 4 Galz and this time the theme is ‘Get Ready For Christmas’. I am sure a lot of you are making lots of Christmas cards at the moment, and it would be great if you were to join us in our challenge.
Here is my card:
After I had stamped and die cut the Christmas tree, I stamped and die cut the poinsettias and leaves and arranged them all as you see. I wanted to add some ‘girlie’ pearls to the tree, and found some pink and green gems in my stash – goodness knows where they came from, or who made them, but I added quite a few. They are so tiny I thought I could get away with it……
The sentiment is from the same stamp set, and I think the font is simple enough against the trees and flowers on the bottom of the card.
As I stamped and cut two trees, I went ahead and made another card with a completely different layout:
This time just the tree, but with a larger sentiment – same stamp set – stamped and heat embossed using a green Wow! sparkly embossing powder.
The two cards together:
I hope to see you in our gallery, and I look forward to seeing what you create.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
AAA Cards – CAS one image, with option of shimmer
Twofer Card Challenge – Christmas Greenery – can both be Christmas this time
Addicted to Stamps – anything goes stamping
Christmas at Sweet Stampin‘ – Christmas and Trees
