Hello fellow crafters,
In a big contrast to the card I last posted, this one is rather bright, isn't it. It is for a friend who lives overseas.
I have used another Stampavie clear stamp called 'A Rosie Rabbit Gift' and it has been coloured with my Promarkers.
A close-up of super cute 'Rosie' and her Christmas shopping.
The poinsettia was made using Spellbinders Poinsettia die set. I "umed and ahhed" about acquiring the dies last Christmas, and after seeing so many beautiful cards using them, on blogs, I succumbed to temptation recently. I LOVE them! I have used the 3 smaller of the 4 petal dies in the set. My other new goodies are the Cheery Lynn 'Holly Leaves" - the die is a strip which has 2 sizes of leaves. I also LOVE this die. I bought it at Di's Scrapbooking Shop (her blinkie is on my sidebar). The gold 'twigs' are cut from a large branch that was a Christmas decoration, bought at an after Christmas sale several years ago.
Inside the card co-ordinates with the front. I used my new Martha Stewart 'Aspen Snowflake' PATP punch down the side of the Kaisercraft 'Mint Twist' DP. My faithful old Spellbinders were used to cut the scalloped square and rectangle.
Challenges I would like to enter are -
Passion for Promarkers #174 - 'In the Garden' (Poinsettias, holly, branches)
Penny's Paper Crafty #101 - 'Lots of Layers'
