The new challenge is up over at Heart 2 Heart Challenges is up! This one is all about the embellishments! This could be taken so very many different ways! At first, I was going to do a shaker card, and then, as the card was coming together, it ended up being totally different! I love how it turned out, don’t you?
For this card, I started with the window thin cuts. Everything except the shutters have four layers of White Daisy Cardstock, the top and bottom have a layer of Charcoal Cardstock, and the shutters have a layer of Pewter Cardstock. I have a piece of acetate between two layers of the window, so that I could have some “glass” in my window frame!
I ended up stamping on a piece of the Wood Texture Paper (from the Wood Grain Paper Packet, and I love how much depth it gives it! I used two of the little sprigs from the Serenity Cardmaking Stamp & Thin Cuts. and put them on two 1″ x 1″ blocks. I used Sage, Clover, and Evergreen inks for the foliage.
I added red sequins from the Holiday Loose Sequins (that are still available online!) with the , then some of the tiny gold glitter gems on the garland. I decided it still needed a bit more, so I added a few lines with my black .05 journaling pen, then I added the larger gold gems to the end of those lines.
Of course, the outside of the house needed to have something on it, we couldn’t have it be just plain white! So, I grabbed a sheet of the brick texture paper from the textures paper pack. These bricks work perfectly!
The card is a 5×7 card that I made from White Daisy Cardstock. Though not shown, the inside reads “For You With Love”, from the For All Occasions stamp set. I used a 2″ x 2″ block for that, and combined the two sentiments onto one block.
I would love to know what you think about this card! For every share of this blog post, and comment on this post, and comment on the Facebook post with this card, you will be entered into a drawing for me to send this card to you, for you to be able to use to send to someone! (or keep for yourself!) I will draw a winner on December 11th! And, if you have made it this far, if you put a penguin emoji in your comment (here or on facebook) you will receive 2 entries!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope that between myself and the other ladies, you have been inspired to join us over at Heart 2 Heart Challenges! You have until the end of the month to participate! I hope to see you over there!
