Hi and welcome to a scheduled post to announce the start of a brand new challenge at ATSM.
Here's my inspiration card.
This is because the latest challenge is -
I know my daughter hates it when I post a Christmas card so early in the year but it does mean I'm not madly making them at the last minute in November and December! I think it is a particular good idea this year as I think I may be a little busy towards the end of this year, wink, wink.
To inspire me I had a root through some ideas I'd saved awhile back and saw a card using a monochrome snowflake bauble on grey here. Loved the tone on tone effect with the contrast sentiment.
I've had this freebie bauble die for quite awhile awaiting the perfect opportunity. This was it and I decided to go with a navy option with white and silver accents.
To start I cut a panel of navy card with a MFT blueprints die and then the bauble with snowflake pattern in the same blue card and black fun foam. I glued the two together to get the dimension then added some fine silver chord from the stash and the die cut JOY (a Tim Holtz alphabet strip from Sizzix). I added an extra silver die cut snowflake to finish. The sentiment is from Uniko and was stamped and embossed with white EP. The bauble was attached to the blue panel and a bow from the same chord finished it off. The blue panel was then popped up on a panel of fun foam over a white base.
