Good afternoon, just.
Its been a bit of a strange morning today, weatherwise. Went out in my fleece even though the sun was out its been chilly these last few days, but I was absolutely sweltered!! Weird weather we are having at the mo.
Anyway here is a card I made yesterday in between making table runners for my daughter's new kitchen/diner but it got too dark to take a photo by the time I finished it.
I made this with a few challenges in mind and the fact that Christmas is around the corner and I need to get a few cards made before the mad rush!
in which she hopes to encourage us to use our design papers.
I saw this and thought immediately of my Memory Box dies, Country Landscape and Calm Countryside. The latest challenge at the Cutting Edge also has an image using the cloud theme and
and over at Merry Monday's Silent Night is the theme.
So as you may be able to see, I've taken a little bit of inspiration from all three images.
,I used the Calm Countryside die to cut an aperture then extended it with a Cookie Cutter square die.
I then used it again to create the back layer of hills and the Country Landscape for the two nearer hills. The papers were from the stash, just odds and ens in the Christmas paper box. I chose one's that suggested snow on grass. I cut the houses again in kraft and brown and coloured some paper with a Copic to create the lights in the windows. The sky was also from the stash, showing twinkling stars. The base card is covered in some textured green DP with diagonal stripes, but I can't get them to show on the photo! The frame was popped up on pads.
OK that's about it, thanks for calling by.
