... CAS-ual Fridays - CFC20 have a super challenge this week - they want us to make mini clean and simple cards - well no bigger than 4" × 4". I like smaller cards - so I made another today - this time I've gone with a Christmas theme using a digi image - which is the challenge at Jingle Belles - JB38. And as it's reasonably clean and simple in design - I'm entering into the Less is More - LIM33 - Anything Goes Aim for 1,000 challenge.
My card is a 4" × 4" square - it's slightly creamy in colour and has a very subtle texture to it. The image is from Pink Petticoat and I have had it for ages and ages - but I tend to forget about them. So the Jingle Belles challenge was a good way to make me check out what I had. I printed three images the same size. I cut one out using my nesties and added colour with distress inks. I used a gold marker pen around the edge to give a thin gold border. I colour the cupcake case with a promarker and then cut out the frosting layer and added lots of glitter. I also did a fussy cut on the holly leaves and berries - not easy - and coloured them with Sakura glaze pens. I'm really pleased with this - nice to use the digi image too!
