First, I want to send out a big welcome and thank you to my new followers! I'm very glad to have you on my crafting journey! I hope everyone is having a wonderful and creative summer so far! It has been a while since my last post and I have no idea where the days have gone. Summer has that effect, doesn't it!? I have lots of catching up to do and (finally) a card to share.
Nicecrane Designs and is part of a beautiful set of vintage images called Kittens and Puppies on Christmas. Thank you Ignacio; I just love these images to bits! They are super quick and easy to work with too, since they are already coloured. Just print them on some card and your good to go!
I created my first ever shaker card, which was surprisingly simple to do. I made the frame using SCAL2 by welding various shapes together and I love how it turned out. The acetate was recycled from some packaging - the clear sheets that cling stamps are sandwiched between. Since I've started putting my clings in binders, I have a lot of these kicking around. The paper is from Best Creations (Merry Christmas pad). I used a McGill punch for the branches, the holly is from My Scrap Chick and the corner is a die from Nellie Snellen. The little jingly bells were died red with Adirondack ink and the frame was filled with some coarse glitter. A little tule and my first Christmas card of the year is complete!
I would like to enter this card in the following fun challenges:
Sweet Stamps challenge - Victorian (vintage) Christmas
Charisma Cardz Challenge - Recycle (the acetate was from packaging)
Creatalicious Challenge - Christmas in July
Totally Gorjuss - Christmas
Thanks for taking a peek and for taking the time to leave a comment! Have a wonderful week!
