Hello and welcome to my crafty blog.
Today my post is my DT card for the Craftymessers Challenge Blog. The theme, chosen by teamie Shirly-Anne, is for a card using non-traditional colours and/or images to create a Christmas Card. Our sponsors this time is Meiflower and Crimson cloud with some great prizes for the winner of the challenge. The challenge starts today and runs for a forthnight.
I'm a big fan of the Non-Trad Christmas card and I have been known to use bright pinks and greens and even black in previous Christmas Cards. This time my card was made using a Navy coloured card-base with a strip of lime green card, torn to create rough edges. A piece of bright pink ribbon was stamped with snowflakes and adhered to the lime green card. Some pink gems were added to the centre of the snowflakes. I stamped some tree outlines and the sentiment with Versamark and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. I stamped the image on to white card and coloured it using Copics and the finished image was adhered to the card with some dimensional adhesive pads to make it pop. I like how the colours work and still have a Christmas feel.
The stamped images and sentiment come from the same Polka-Doodles stamp set that was a freebie with a Christmas issue of Papercraft Essentials.
Thanks for stopping by to read my blog and don't for get to leave me a comment. I love hearing from you!
