Hello everyone and a particularly warm welcome to Natalia of Nataliascraft blog who is a new friend joining us as a follower this week. Natalia does amazing things with die cuts and embossing folders, so why not pop over to say hello and get some great inspiration from her elegant cards.
I've been doing a little happy dance now that spring is officially here, and I'm feeling a bit smug that my Christmas card pile is slowly growing over the weeks. If you fancy making Christmas cards this spring it is time for this weeks challenge over at the Christmas Card Challenge Blog and the theme is the ever popular 'anything goes'
I came up with this CAS card
In celebration of the pale green shoots and buds of spring that I'm seeing all over the place, I chose a delicate green and white colour scheme. I cut several of the 'peace' Papertrey Ink One Liner Dies and stacked them to give a chipboard look. I added a stamped line in an aqua green colour underneath using a border stamp from the Candy Cane stamp set. This stamp wasn't long enough to cover the whole card but it is so easy to line up, and, (note to self) it reminded me that some stamps in Christmas sets can be useful for general cards and don't need to be kept just for Christmas. I put a thin strip of aqua card between the two to give a bit of contrast to the white, and stamped the sentiments from Simon Says Stamps Sending and Wishing set. To fiish it off, I cut some holly with the Holly Jolly dies from PTI and sponged some green ink on the leaves before adding some Wink of Stella and drawing on the berries with a glaze pen
