Hi crafty people, how was your weekend? We had a lovely relaxed weekend with a little bit of shopping, catching up on a few Outlander episodes and a chilly but bright walk.
Today I am here with a card for a challenge which is new to me. It’s the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge 460 and the current challenge is to make a card using red, green and white.
I pulled out a wreath die which came free with a die cutting essentials magazine a month or two back and I hadn’t had a chance to play with it yet! I cheated slightly and added gold as well as the red, green and white! I cut the wreath 3 in gold, red and green mirror card and then paper pieced the baubles. It was a bit fiddly but I was pleased with the effect when it was finished! The die set also included the bows and the word joy so I cut them from matt card and added the bows with some 3d pads to give a bit of dimension.
I mounted the wreath on a white card panel with the sentiment in the middle and then layered it on a red square before adding to a green square card base.
I think it’s a nice cheerful card with a traditional feel about it. I hope you like my card and I’d love it if you left me a message in the comments.
Thanks so much for stopping by the Ginger Ninja Crafts blog and I hope to see you again soon.
