This fortnight, our lovely Clare has the privilege of choosing the theme: Use Kraft on the Card. Sounds simple enough...but the execution was not so, at least not for me. I just could not decide on the colours...apart from the kraft element. In the end, I relied on this week's Colour Throwdown #234 for inspiration. Bit by bit, my card evolved into this:
|The patterned papers are from HOTP's "Forever Christmas". The sentiment is from CB's Song of Christmas set, stamped in Brilliance Cottage Ivy. I'm using kraft for layering and the scalloped trim.|
|I made a window card. For cutting and layering I used Spellbinder Standard Circles and Scalloped Circles dies. For embellishments, I have green bling and a sheer white bow. I did my stitching with white thread.|
|Here's the inside. The image is a stamp from Chocolate Baroque's "Christmas Song" set, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I coloured the bird with SN markers (GB 7, GB8, GB10, EB5, CR10). Now that's what I call a krafty bird!|
|Here's a close-up of the stamped image. I used som clear bling in the centre of each ornament. On the branches I dabbed some Stickles Frosted Lace and Icicle for a frosty look. It's not really showing up well in the photos.|
I'm playing along with Colour Throwdown #234; Amusing Challenges "Kraft"; Christmas Stampin All Year Long #8 "Anything Goes"; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge #117 "3 of Something" - 3 clear bling; CHNC Challenge Extra - March; Drunken Stampers #120 "Birds"; 4 Crafty Chicks "Break Out The Circles" and Make It Monday #133.
That's all for today, folks. Thanks for stopping by today. Have blessed Sunday and I'll see y'all tomorrow.
