.... yes, I know I went mad with this week's Jingle Belles challenge. I'm enjoying playing with paper!! Most of my recent cards haven't featured much in the way of designer papers - I've most stamped my own backgrounds, so this is lots of fun. And I'm starting to use my (huge) supply of designer papers :)
This time I've gone for a blue/green colour scheme - a bit more traditional in colour, but not so much in design.
The card is themed, loosely, on snowflakes. The papers are all from a Dovecraft pack that I've had for a few years - it may last a few more :))
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Sewing Box - Christmas
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black
Paper: Dovecraft - Christmas Blues
Spellbinders: Eyelet Circles (S4-304) die # 3
The close-up photo shows the bauble in greater detail and here you can just about see the soft pale green of the textured mirri card. It's ever so pretty in real-life!!
I've enjoyed this challenge, and think that I may make a few more cards - although I don't think I'm going to get them done in time to beat the deadline!
And that's all for today. It's been a really fun day - family, friends, crafting TV - what more could I want. Oh yes, I'd love to have Jonathan home from India - still it's only two months to go!!
Do drop by tomorrow - it's the launch of the June challenge for St Luke's Charity Card Challenge - we have a super theme this month - so come see my card.
