A three in one card ...

...   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!


Image:  Pink Petticoat
Spellbinders:  Big Scalloped Ovals Lg (S-251) #4
Inks: Distress - Antique Linen
Accessories: Sakura glaze pens - red and green; crystal glitter, gold pen, card

It's turned out to be a lovely day here - the sun is shining and it's quite warm - so nice!!  See you later!

This one is yummy! I love the thin gold border - you have a very steady hand!

Don't think we're going to make the 1000 cards this week - not enough new players :-(

Super card, Deborah. I love all the different techniques. I have those PP images, and just like you, I forgot I had them:)

Deb what a cute card! Love the sentiment with that fab cupcake. So cool how you got the white stripe around the die cut. I will have to give that a go. YUMMY!
