I had e successful workshops yesterday. Everyone loved the cards. We had a snow/snowman theme. Needless to say there was a lot of bling involved with these cards! Today I have an appointment and a dentist appointment. Then I am planning on spending some time in my craft room.
We have a new theme this month for our Coloring Down the Lines blog hop.
The only stipulation was we had to use silver and gold on our card.
I went looking at my challenge blogs to see if there was one I had not participated in yet. I found the perfect sketch at Fab Friday
I thought the gold and silver foil doilies would be perfect for the circle element. That took care of my
gold/silver requirement so I was ready to see what other colors I would use. Since we could use any other colors, I opted to use some more of my This Christmas designer series paper. I took my other colors from the patterned paper. I cut my dsp and mounted it onto a Cherry Cobbler card base. I then used Garden Green for the horizontal strip in the sketch. I stamped it with the snowflakes in the Greetings From Santa stamp set. It was attached just below the dsp. Now that I had my card base complete I was ready to address the circle element. I used the sentiment from Holly Jolly Greetings and stamped it in Cherry Cobbler onto Very Vanilla. I used the 1" circle punch to punch it out. I punched a 1 1/4" circle from Cherry Cobbler. The sentiment was layered onto the Cherry Cobbler. I used the small gold doily and attached the sentiment layer to it. My card was complete. Here is my interpretation of the sketch.
