I used our sketch from May 2013 for my card. I really like it and this card is quite different from the cards I made last year. I wanted to let the sentiment be the focus of the card and use pretty design papers. I made the base from Real Red card and cut a panel of this fab design paper to cover it, leaving a narrow border. I cut out an oval of white card onto which I stamped the sentiment and snowflakes and layered it onto a red scalloped oval. I cut a coordinating piece of DP for the strip across the middle and added some bold red gems. On the inside I cut another piece of the poinsettia paper, layered on some white card leaving a big border and finished with a sentiment from the paper pack.
The rest of the team have made stunning cards to share with you - do pop over to our blog and leave them so love. It's only 3½ months to Christmas, so now really is the time to join in with us and get a head start on your Christmas cards. These are the cards I made in May 2013:
I think you'll agree that the cards I made last time look totally different to the one I made this year!!
Before I go, I'm having a proud Mum moment! I took Kathryn out yesterday to have her hair done - she's back at school next week - it looks super and I decided to take a few photos of my fabulous girl:
You can see the lovely cut and colours in this photo - she actually smiled too!!
Here Kathryn is looking more like a teen! And she'll be a teen in 17 days!!!! Eek!
That's all for today - sorry to be late with my DT card - but sometimes life gets in the way! See you soon.
