Today, I am bringing you a Christmas card inspired by three different challenges:
- Cardz TV - Bling it Up!
- Got Sketch? - awesome sketch - be sure to check it out!
- Heart 2 Heart - Christmas Time
This card was created with Pear and Partridge paper and the Cricut Artiste cartridge. I really enjoy making 6x6 cards, so when I saw Valerie's sketch at Got Sketch?, I knew I had to do a larger card. These colors from the paper packet lend themselves well to the shabby chic look and old world Christmas. Let's look a little closer:
I've got 6 layers of poinsetta cuts from the Artiste Christmas key. I used Almond Glitz Gel to add sparkle to the leaves, and then I tucked in some metal flourishes and a button from the Antiqued Gold Mini Medleys collection.
You will see more of the ornaments next month when I introduce the October Stamp of the Month. So that's just a sneak peek! I hope that you are having a great week and that you're having plenty of time to craft!
