Hello. A new challenge has started at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge – here is my card:
For this card, everything except the dark teal card base – and the colouring – is from Heffy Doodle. The images from ‘Santa’s Village‘. Even though I stamped most of the images in the set, these four were the one’s I chose for the card. Once coloured with Copics, and die-cut with the matching dies, I set them to one side to create the base card and layers.
Very simply, the scalloped layer is from Heffy Doodle ‘slimline pull tab’ die set, and the white layer is Heffy Doodle ‘stitched slimline trio’. The base card is pre-cut and scored, from Papermill Direct, and having the scalloped layer being at that exact size length-wise meant there was no border at the sides, but a good border top and bottom.
I quite like the look, which is why I chose a darker more obvious base-card – instead of trying to hide it – we have to use our stash, don’t we?
I decided to keep the square die-cuts inside each window – not even raising them up or even raising the frame – liking the clean look it gives with just that pattern around each square. No ink-blending, no splatters – just a clean almost monochromatic look.
I went searching for a suitable sentiment – the correct size etc – but decided not to put one on the front, and left it as you see.
I hope you can come and join us – anything goes Christmas/festive – and I look forward to seeing you in our gallery. xx
