Joanna Sheen Enchanted Dreams Christmas card
Hello blogging peeps, sorry for the wait between posts but I have had a bad cold and nearly lost my voice because of it (can't tell you how many peeps were quite glad of it!) but has been a difficult week mostly because my job involves a lot of talking. Anyway voice is on the way back and am feeling heaps better. Todays card is an entry for the crafty bloggers network challenge http://craftybloggersnetwork.blogspot.com/which is a simple card and they have a group on facebook if you would like to join other crafty bloggers and look at lots of other very lovely creations.
Today's card is an 8 x 8 with a silver mat then a hunkydory xmas patterned paper layered on top. I used a snowflake memory box die to cut 4 corners in silver. (I originally tried colouring one a pale blue but it didn't really make too much difference so I left them silver in the end) the corners were glued with a quickie glue pen as they are quite filigree. I printed a topper from the Joanna Sheen Enchanted Dreams cd (available here http://www.joannasheen.com/craft-supplies/joanna-sheen-cdrom-dvds/cdrom-enchanted-dreams/ if you are interested) and matted onto silver and some lovely purple coredinations glitter card and arranged in the centre. To finish a nice hunkydory sentiment. Oh and I also used a sakura glitter pen on the snowflakes on the topper for a little sparkle.
This card was so simple to make, took less than 1/2 hour to put together and yet is probably one of the most striking cards I have made in a while. The silver snowflake corners add a complementary icy feel to the card and in real life looks really good, I don't know if that comes across well in the photo.
Anyway that's all for today....happy halloween peeps.
Until next time
