Cardmaking

A joyful card!

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.

      1. If you’ve never read the books, you need to read them. I couldn’t put them down! I hesitated to watch it because I liked the books so much, but they’ve done such a great job bringing the books to life. I bought all the available seasons last fall and binge watched while I had the flu. You’re gonna love it!
