Hi – how is your week going? Have you had time to create or maybe you need a little inspiration?
We have a great challenge over at Holly Jolly this week and it will definitely inspire you to get going on those Christmas cards.
This week I am hosting the challenge and if you haven’t already guessed it is an inspirational photo challenge.
There is a warm fire place, candles, Christmas trees, decorations, lots of different colours and the list goes on!
For my card the inspiration has been taken from the rug on the floor which is black and white and I have added the family Christmas tree image from the Welcome Christmas stamp set as there are lots of Christmas trees in the picture.
The image has been embossed with black embossing powder and cut it out using the Labels Framelits. I have also gone for a white on white look as there are two lovely white arm chairs placed in the picture. A scrap of Whisper White cardstock has been embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The image has been added to the embossed background with dimensionals.
For some colour (inspired by wrapped presents) I added some Real Red 5/8” (1.6 cm) Satin Ribbon and a large bow. I have not added some ‘bling’ for a while to my projects but it has been added to this card!
Here is my card:
Stamp set: Welcome Christmas
Card: Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories: 5/8” (1.6 cm) Real Red Satin Ribbon, Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Labels Framelits, Black Embossing Powder, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive
