The start of a new week ....... and what a way to start!
I'm so pleased to be back with you as this weeks Guest Designer on the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge. There's only 30 days to go now until the big day ...... eeek!!!! At least my Christmas are nearly done ..... how about yours?
If you haven't made a start yet, how about taking up this week's challenge ........
It's all about that seasonal colour combination of Red, Green and White ....... very festive!
I've gone for the traditional look with Christmas poinsettias for the Red part.
The stamp is from a Penny Black 'T' for Transparent set that came free on Issue 113 of Papercraft Essentials craft magazine ......
I stamped the flower onto the corner of a piece of white cardstock, and then made myself a few masks (stamped the poinsettia onto Post-It notes and cut them out).
I placed a mask over the stamped image and then stamped the poinsettia again on either side.
Using the masks, I covered up all three of the stamped images, and then lightly spritzed the White background using one of the new Distress Spray Stains ......... Tarnished Brass
I removed the masks, and stamped the poinsettia a couple of times onto more white cardstock, then fussy cut around the petals. I coloured the poinsettias using Copic Markers, and then the layers were added to the centre bloom on the card, to add a touch of dimension
The Christmas greeting is by Penny Black and has been stamped with Crimson Red Versafine ink and then embossed with a clear powder
The pretty satin ribbon and matching bow add the required Green to the card, and I finished off by adding the poinsettia to the inside along with a greeting
Now it's your turn to join in the fun. I can't wait to see your festive Red, Green and White designs. Have fun!
It's been a pleasure being part of the Merry Monday team again ....... thanks for having me ladies (I do love your little challenge!)
Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your Monday and have a great week!
Cheerio until next time
