As you can see I did play a bit with the sketch, it's upside down and there's no sentiment or ribbon, but I don't think it needs either of them. I used this week's Merry Monday - MM#111 challenge for the colours - to use aqua, white and a splash of colour(s). I've been itching to play with my new die - I've seen many fabulous cards using the die and just had to play with it. I covered the card base with a sheet of design paper - love the geometric snowflake pattern. I used silver mirri card to make the parcel ribbons (the sketch reminds me of a parcel). I cut a panel of white card and die cut the candle trio and then I repeated the die cut using silver mirri card, aqua, green and yellow card. I used the inlaid die technique to create the image and I'm delighted how well it turned out. I added a touch of sparkle to make the veins on the holly leaves and used my Copic marker to add the holly berries. I adhered the image panel with dimensional tape, but the great thing is that the card is still quite flat and will go through the post easily!! On the inside I cut a couple of mat layers in silver and the design paper and on the white panel I stamped a simple sentiment.
Our Guest Designer this month is Marie from NJ Stamping Queen - for more inspiration using the sketch check out the fab card she's made, and see the lovely cards from the rest of our talented team.
It's so nice getting back into my normal routine and be back to making some cards!! Today the weather forecast is gorgeous, which is good as we are all off to a photo shoot today - a pool party with lots of super models!! That's all for now, have a great weekend.
