This week's challenge over at Bah! Humbug! is apertures and over at Die Cut Dreams it is starlight, starbright. As I'm desperately trying to sort out my craft room and moving books to our new bookcase I thought I would cover both challenges in one card.
I have taken an 8x8" scalloped card and covered with paper from Dovecraft Let it Snow series. I then positioned one of my grand nesties (Labels 1) on the front and put it through my JT machine. The paper I have used for the front of the card is double sided so I cut a frame using the same nesties but turned the paper over to use the plain back as it was a perfect match for the patterned side. I layered some acetate over the frame and glued it down and then put shaker tape around the back of the frame ready for putting it over the aperture. The image is from a stamp set by Debbi Moore and has been coloured in with Promarkers and Diamond Sparkles used for the fluffy bits on the dresses/shoes and also the stars. I then punched out stars of various sizes from red, green and gold mirri to put as the "shaker" element of the card and placed the acetate and frame over the top. The sentiment is from a clear stamp set by Dovecraft and has been embossed using detail gold e/p. The snowflakes are made using a die called Winter's Jewel 1 from Whimsy Stamps. The border has been made using a Martha Stewart edge punch. I then added a few gems to finish off.
Thanks for stopping by.
