I've gone for a very soft, subtle look and I'm really pleased how it turned out. Mind, it's really difficult taking photos of mirri card. I got the idea of a wreath from this week's CASE-ing Christmas Challenge - CCC#11, Anita's wreath is so pretty. I used pale blue card to make the base and cut a couple of white panels with the largest Memory Box die - just love the border. I stamped the wreath (3 stage stamping) on white card, using blue, silver and pink and then cut it out with the matching die. I die cut the sentiment and bow from silver mirri card. I adhered the sentiment and wreath falt to the card and used dimensional gel for the bow. I added a tiny pink enamel dot to the bow. On the inside I simply stamped the blue wreath and a Christmas greeting.
For more inspiration using our soft pastel colours check out the cards from the rest of the team - they're gorgeous! If you've been playing along with us since the beginning of January you will already have 10 cards in your stash, or more! This is a great way to get your cards ready without rushing.
What a difference a week makes, this time last week we had below freezing temperatures (-10°C in fact). Today (Friday), much better we're already at 2°C (36°F) and should reach about 12°C (54°F) this afternoon. Spring is definitely getting here!! What are you plans for the weekend? Whatever they are - have fun and be safe. See you soon.
