Well, I'm jumping into some Christmas card making today, by entering the Merry Monday Christmas Club #77 challenge at Always Playing with Paper.
The idea this time is to use red, pink, light green, dark green and white in a Christmas card.
So, I made this--
You may be thinking the angle I shot the card at is awfully weird. It was the only way to make all the glittery stuff work properly. I have two glitter papers in the ornament (one is from a Springtime pad, don'tcha know) and there is Ranger holographic powder embossed as snowflakes on the striped paper. Oh yes, and a tiny bit of Sakura red glitter pen on the scallops.
I made this card in about 30 minutes, because I wanted to get in on this challenge. I may have reconsidered the twine and button, otherwise. I think they lend themselves to a more rustic setting, really...
I do like the overall idea of this card, and I like these Spellbinders dies that made the ornament. I bought them for like, $4.00 at Michael's last year after Christmas, and they should be some fun, decorating them!
SO! I changed out the twine and button, after all. Bad photo, but it looks like this now--
I think it's more in keeping with the rest of the elements now. Call me crazy....
Thanks for stopping by!
