This card I made for a friend for Christmas. I used lots of stuff from my stash (I have a whole room of it!!!) I took card stock and made a square card then covered it in a patterned paper and then glued on two flower corner pieces that I cute out using my Cuttlebug from the same cardstock as the card. I also cut backing pieces for the embossed snowflake rectangle and the Wizard Nestabilities Scalloped Circle. I then cut out a plain circle from patterned paper to go inside the scalloped circle and a rectangle from white card which I embossed with the snowflake folder with the Cuttlebug. The Magnolia stamp I stamped onto white card and then painted her with water colours using my water colour crayons. I added two brads to the rectangle and then layered it all together. And added on the Season's Greetings embellishment.
I used a sketch for this one from one of the lovely ladies whose blog I read. I will endeavor to do better at giving credit in the future posts and also hopefully more details on materials used.
Again this one I cut a square card and then layered it with different Christmas themed papers from my stash. I also added peel offs around the center square and the sentiment. I just love this Santa and he paints up beautifully. On the papers I inked the edges of the large square and the smaller rectangle. I also found that the Santa was too bright looking so I took some tan coloured chalks and rubbed over him to make him a bit more blended looking. This one I used my own sketch for layering up. I did play around with different shapes before settling on this one for him.
Anyway I hope you all enjoy my first cards here on my new blog and hopefully more to come in the near future.
