So, with that said, please forgive yet another Christmas card!
This time, I used the sketch from Kazan over at 2 Sketches 4 You, and utilized some patterned papers and my punches to do all the work for me. I love how quick such things can add such impact.
I started with a Kraft card base, and used some of my favourite peacock blue paper to matte my patterend DP from last year's K & Company Christmas Cheer pad. This paper has a metallic shimmer to it, which doesn't show up well in the photos! I added some clear rhinestones to the center of some of the flakes to just dress it up a little. I added some graph paper from Cosmo Cricket - Girl Friday. I used some puches for my scalloped diamond (square on it's side, of course!), and my sentiment tag. "Merry and Bright" is from PTI's Signature Christmas. I used a snowflake from Snowflake Serenade stamped in Pacific Point behind my sentiment. Finally, I added some organza ribbon, a vintage button, and a coordinating pin to finish it all off!
This card also works for Mona Pendleton's colour challenge - I hope she doesn't mind me entering twice! I forgot to include her inspiration board in yesterday's post, so I have included it today so you can see what I was actually working with!
