Good Morning Ladies,
Before we get too carried away New Project's and this weeks challenge i would just like to share the rest of my Christmas cards.
The first is Lynda's card, an absolute work of art, the camera didn't pick up the incredible sparkle this card has, I think Lynda said she used Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens for the background, they give such a vibrant, intense effect. Lynda has then built the amazing scene around this background, using a variety of Sue Wilson
Dies to create the scene. Lynda then added Gilding Wax to the die cuts to highlight their detail. An absolute fantastic card that I will treasure.
The second card is from Michele, she used a Spellbinders Tree die and a Spellbinders Grand Circle die to create this lovely Card,
Some die cut sentiments finish Michele's design. I love this card Michele, thank you so much.
Lilian's card is next, Lilian used the fabulous Crafters Companion 'Merry Christmas' die, cut in Silver Mirror card as the main element of the card, the background of the card has been beautifully embossed with Snowflakes to match the snowflake element of the Sentiment, a sprinkling of snowflakes over the background add just the right amount of sparkle. Such a lovely card Lilian, thank you.
The final card is Pat's Christmas card, a really fun card, a beautifully coloured Snowman on a Navy background, Pat then added a layer of Snowflake Acetate to give the snowy effect, 4 gingham Card Candy finish the corners and are also a good way of hiding the glue used to affix the the Acetate. This is one of those cards that you see something new everytime you look at it the little robin in the Snowman's pocket and there is another, can you spot it?
Such a fun and fabulous card, thanks Pat.
Receiving your amazing cards makes me feel so Special, i know you all know tgat feeling, the fantastic special handmade Christmas cards really stand out among the Shop bought ones, they are always the ones that guests notice, usually Wow is the reaction! Thank you all so very much xxx
I spent yesterday packing up my craft room, it feels like an endless task, i packed 15 boxes and have barely scratched the surface, i want to leave essentials until last, so that i can continue to craft up to the last few days before moving.
More packing today but i am going to schedule a couple of hours crafting into my afternoon too, if only as a reason to sit down, this packing is exhausting!
I hope you all have a lovely day too,
Love and hugs
