A little more crafty playing yesterday to create this card:
I began by picking the colours out for the current Color Throwdown Challenge and then browsing the ‘Color My Life’ app for ideas. I had no idea where I wanted to go with these colours.
I decided to use these new-to-me dies from Honey Bee Stamps to create a couple of bells, which I die cut and created first. I then decided I wanted a dry embossed background, so turned to one of my favourite embossing folders from Stampin Up.
I wanted a gold layer beneath the embossed layer, so after cutting the panel, I die cut the sentiment – from Lawn Fawn – out of the middle, then layered the two panels together, adding to the card base with 3D foam.
I played with the placement of the bells, but thought a little more dimension was needed, so I used two ovals from a Gina K Designs Master Layouts set, and stuck everything down as you see.
The sentiment was added, but only after I had layered the gold with a couple of white die cuts.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
Color Throwdown – gold, pink, ice blue
CYHTP – embossing folder, option of Christmas not taken
Inkspirational – prompt word – gold
Dragonfly Dreams – anything but Christmas
Crafters Café – anything goes
