Scrappymo of Scraps Of Life By Scrappymo, after taking over from Sarn who stepped down at the end of last year. The idea of this challenge is to get a head start on making christmas cards by making at least one each month. Of course you can make more if you wish but you only need one to enter. The challenge opens on 25th and remains open until the end of the month. There are a friendly bunch of cardmakers who take part every month so why not pop over to Scappymo's and join in.
So onto my card which I had intended to make at the weekend ready for Sunday 25th, but it just didn't happen so here I am a few days late. This is an unusual card for me as it has no stamping on it. I bought this Dovecraft paper pack before last christmas but didn't get round to using it. It is also different colour wise for me as well but I really liked it. The folded card is A6 size and I cut the christmas words paper to fit the front leaving just a narrow border. I then cut a panel of the green fir cone paper and matted it onto some plain brown from the same pack. After sticking these together I wrapped some matching ribbon around and secured at the back before sticking the whole panel to the card front. I think it was a Britania die that I used to cut the fir branch and cones at the top. I felt it needed a little brightening up so added a tiny red bow made from the ribbon cut from the shoulders of a jumper and then I also tied another piece through the holes in a button from a set coordinating with the papers and glued to over the ribbon greeting.
Thank you for visiting here today and for your lovely comments which are really appreciated.
