Hi Susan here. This is an exciting time for Emma and I, we have been chosen to be on the Cute Card Thursday Design Team, we will be taking it in turns designing for the challenges, this week is my turn!!
They have a challenge set each Thursday morning this week the challenge is 'Get a Head Start' and involves making a Christmas Card!! Not hard is it! It has the added bonus that you have at least one card ready for the holiday season to give away....
So let me tell you about my card!!
I have used The Sweet Stop Sketch and loved it!! My backing papers are from a CD Artylicious - Seasons Greetings, scrummy papers and colours and loads to choose from. I distressed all the edges and glittered them with stickles.
I wanted a semi-vintage look and hopefully I succeeded, I kept my colour scheme to red, black and white in subdued shades in keeping with a vintage feel.
The ribbon and lace are from our local market.
This image is a wooden stamp from Hampton Art called Santa Claus!! What else!!!
It doesn't require very much colouring in so I used chalks for a delicate shading for his hat and cheeks...
The flowers are from Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts, I glittered them with stickles
The sentiment I made myself on the computer, this whole poem is on the backing paper just behind the flowers!!
This cute vintage metal charm is one I bought from a little shop in Witchita on holiday a while ago.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.
