Hello Everyone - apologies for not posting much these last few weeks but things have been pretty hectic here and it seems like the garden needs attention every day!!! This warm and wet weather is brilliant for the weeds........they're growing like....well.....weeds!!! lol Also my conservatory looked like a jungle with all the plants I have grown which definitely needed to be planted outside - Tony thought they were taking over!!!
Anyway onto my card for today's challenge over at the Christmas Card Club. This week it's the lovely Sue who has set the challenge which is a Nativity Scene.
As soon as I had time to think about what I was going to do a little parcel slipped through my letterbox (don't you love it when that happens???) and out pops this lovely die that I'd ordered - and I got a "ding" and knew what I wanted to do. So here is my first offering - 'cause I felt guilty not joining in the last couple of challenges I've made two cards:
I've used an Anna-Marie 7" square card blank for the base and I embossed it with my dotty Embossalicious e/f. The nativity scene was downloaded from the internet. I made a couple of frames using my Lil'Inkers stitched mats and layered them over the image. I then used my gorgeous new die which is the Sweet Dixie "Star" SDD015 - isn't it lovely? I added a thin strip of acetate and glued it behind the frames so it has movement - if you look carefully you can see that the star on the image is actually the same shape as my new die - how about that for serendipity! The sentiment is SU Gifts of Christmas stamped using my Delicata gold ink and punched using my EK Success ticket punch.
My second card again uses an image from the internet mounted behind a frame from Spellbinders Card Creator Mystical Embrace. This is then mounted on some dark blue mirri and then onto an embossed mat gold base. The sentiment is from a polymer stamp set but it's got no name. That is mounted on a banner from the Spellbinders Card Creator Tranquil Moments set.
Thanks for dropping by. Please pop on over to see the offerings by the rest of the girls in the Christmas Card Club (links on my sidebar) - if you fancy joining in with us send an email to Margaret.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
