I hope you enjoyed the holiday weekend and had good weather for at least some of the time. We have had a lovely time seeing friends and family and we spent a nice afternoon singing at an arts festival with our choir. I love holiday weekends but I'm always pleased to get back into my craft room for a little down time after all the busyness. I'd like to welcome Stacey from Stacey's Creative Corner who is joining us as a new follower. Stacey is a member of a number of Design Teams, including the Silhouette Challenges and you can find lots of inspiration on her blog.
Today is the start of another challenge over at the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge, and this time we are asked to use fancy folds on our projects. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut a flip card and then cut mats with some Nestabilities Label dies to come up with this card.
I used an image called Bauble Border from our sponsor QKR Stampede and coloured it with Copics and a metallic gel pen. I also used a sentiment from the Papertrey Ink set Rustic Wreath, which I stamped in scarlet jewel, my favourite Christmas ink. Here is the card standing up.
When you flip the card, you have the same image with a different sentiment from the same set. I finished the card off with a couple of die cut hearts and a stars.
I used scarlet jewel card for the base because I think it lends itself to masculine cards and I have a few men I send Christmas cards to and even though this has a couple of hearts on it, I think it is an okay guy card..
I'd like to enter this into
Simply Less is More - use die cuts I may be pushing it a bit with this because of the layers, but I think the clean design and lack of fussy embellishments respects the CAS approach.
52 Christmas Card Throwdown - something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue - my card, ink, Copics and dies are my 'old, the image is my 'new and the little hearts and one of the baubles are the blue.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great week.
