Today, being a Tuesday means it's time for a new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.
This week it's my turn to choose the theme and I went with -
CHRISTMAS IN JULY
That's it, we want to see your Christmas cards, a chance for you to get ahead in your Christmas makes.
I've noticed a few challenges that have had the same idea but the topic has been on the books for a couple of months now!
Anyway, here is my card.
I used a Woodware wreath stamp and a Paper Smooches greeting.
The layout was influenced by this card over at Muse Christmas Visions by Kimberly Weiner.
It did start out as a OLC but I managed to get ink on one corner whilst trimming it to size, :( .
Anyway I managed to rescue it. I coloured the wreath with Copics and some Paper Effects White Pearl on the tiny white flowers and a pinky red gel pen was used over the really tiny dots. A little bit of blue was coloured in behind the wreath for shadow and a scrap edged in the same blue Copic pen gave me the frame. Everything is mounted flat to be post friendly, I even used a scrap left over from diecutting a circle so the weight is reduced.
Quite a simple card, except for colouring the foliage!
For more Christmas inspiration, please check out the rest of the DT and our GD Sharon.
