Hi girls. Thanks for visiting my blog if this is your first time, or even better, for coming back if you have been before. I hope you like what you find here.
Well the weekend is over and it's time to start another round of challenges. I had a great weekend and found out that I had won the weekly prize over at Crafts4Eternity - I'm really chuffed.
Well enough of that let's get to the card. I liked the look of the sketch for the Papertake Weekly challenge this week and decided on a Christmas theme. I took the chance to use my recently aquired Inkadinkado Holiday Sentiments Set No. 99507 and used the christmas tree and the sentiment. The card is very loosely based on a card I made a few weeks ago at a class at Stampaholics in Perth (where else I hear you ask) taken by Siobhan.
The backing paper is from Doodlebug Designs. I cut a scalloped narrow rectangle out of Dark blue card and used that as a backing for another Nestie rectangle cut out of white glitter card. Mounted on that is the stamped design on white card edged in blue. The sentiment is on white card, cut with a Nestie, edged in blue and is mounted on blue ribbon across the bottom of the card. All the card and ribbon are from my stash. The snowflakes were cut from Snowflake Nestie No.2 and the Alpine Snowflake punch.
I hope you like the overall effect of this card enough to find time to leave a comment. I love reading your comments, they are so encouraging and helpful.
