Hello again everyone. There is a new challenge beginning at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge – the theme is ‘anything goes Christmas’ as always. You can make cards, scrapbook pages, bookmarks, boxes – as long as it’s Christmas related.
Here is my card:
I wanted to create a wreath on my card, with the sentiment in the middle taking centre stage, so I turned to my new Memory Misti – a present from my mum and sister for Christmas………..which I forgot I had! I know, I know – it was put to one side very tidily, and it wasn’t until I was re-arranging my room a little to make some space for mixed media ‘stuff’ that I found it again……
I started with a 6 inch square piece of card, and arranged some boughs from a freebie stamp set, and some fill-in smaller boughs from Uniko to create the design around the wreath.
I used a Stampin Up ink for the boughs, and even stamped the little poinsettia flowers in green – I didn’t want to introduce black anywhere on this card……………
I coloured two of the three leaf layers on the stamp in Copics – it seemed a little plain without the red in them – and yes – I added some Nuvo drops to the centre of the flowers. I think I was quite restrained with them, actaully!
The sentiment is from the same freebie stamp set, and the two circle dies are from a Sue Wilson set.
I like the overall simplicity of this card, with the most difficult part for me was deciding which images to use………..
I hope you can come and join us with this challenge – I look forward to seeing you in our gallery. xx
