Hi everyone, our new challenge on Colour Create is a lovely combo of Lavender/Purple, Aqua, White and Black chosen by my lovely DT friend Deanne, such a pretty choice Deanne, thanks very much. There’s no optional extra for this challenge so it’s the colours and whatever you like. As always the girls have some amazing cards for the challenge so I hope you can pop over for a look and join us. Our sponsor for this challenge is Michelle’s Scrapbooking and there are two lovely stamps as the prize.
My card is a straightforward one, I had in mind to make a batch of these……………yeah, right! I’ve cut out the Christmas tree shape from an SVG file on the Cricut which is made to fit the Cuttlebug christmas tree embossing folder. The die cut was then embossed with the folder and I also cut a mat layer from black card and sponged the edges with white ink. The background is more white card embossed with the Cuttlebug snow embossing folder and I’ve finished off with lots of stickles in blue and lilac/purple, some bows, a toile bow and some gems. Think I would have liked this better if I’d left it white as I sprayed the white card with pearl glimmer mist so it’s nice and sparkly without anything else, a shame it doesn’t show in the photo. I’m also entering this into the Cuttlebug Challenge where the theme this week is glitter, Daring Cardmakers where the challenge is white Christmas, hope I can get away with this, my card is mainly white :) and SCSC has a theme of Christmas trees.
