I hope you are having a good weekend....I have been playing in my craft room this afternoon and have made some cards to join in with this week's Muse challenge. The lovely Michele from icardeveryone set the challenge to make 3 cards using the same patterned paper.
I don't often use patterned paper (although I have loads of it) so this was a real challenge. I found a fresh stripy print and made 3 Christmas cards:
The first card features my current favourite snowflake die from Hero Arts stacked up on several layers and covered in a generous layer of Wink of Stella. The lovely sentiment is from Clearly Besotted. I used some Winnie & Walter stamps to create my trees on the second card and a Spellbinders ornament die on the last card.
I will also link up at Less Is More where this week's challenge is to use non traditional Christmas colours and at the Anything Goes Challenge at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.
Finally, I will join in the November challenge at Make The Day Special which is to make a Christmas card using one of their colour combos. I bought my HA Snowflake die from the store....
I hope you like these designs.
Thanks for stopping by!

Sarah!! I love the aqua and red combo the most!! Each is gorgeous but #3 gets my fave vote... did you pierce that yourself or does the die do it? Perfection. Love the silver embossed sentiments with those colors. So happy you are playing cards with me at the Muse this week... so happy!ReplyDelete
Love all three cards, Sarah. The last one with the paper peeking through the die is one that I will have to try with my abundance of patterned paper. :)ReplyDelete

Love your interpretation of the challenge colors. The red and light blue go beautifully together and I love how you interpreted the color combo differently on all cards, yet kept with the stripes. Awesome!ReplyDelete
