I was asked to make a Christmas card by an extended member of our family. It was for their daughter and her Husband, who just happens to be my Hubby's uncle.
Shirley loves bling and I wanted a feminine touch, but not over the top.
The letter dies are MFT and the Christmas tree is Memory box. The snowflake is also from MFT.
The letters and snowflake were cut from glitter paper. The paper is from my stash- and I sprayed the Crafters Companion glitter spray over them for the added sparkle that I feel Christmas demands.
The patterned paper was then edged in silver marker just to help make it pop. The stamp sentiment was MFT and stamped in silver ink. The base for the sentiment is a Spelbinders die.
I really enjoyed making this card - I googled the instructions after seeing so many on the Splitcoasters gallery that I view daily! It's great for inspiration and there are so many talented card makers and paper crafters out there.
Two more pics of the card, but please excuse the quality of the photo's. Now that I am slowly finding out what you can do on an iPad, I hope to become a little more professional.
That's all for now folks. Planning to try one of those 3d card-in-a-box soon.
BTW: today is the first day of Lent. I have given up alcohol and snacking for the next 40 days. It's gonna be hard not to nibble my way through the day, but my figure may see the benefits!
Take care x
