Hi crafty people, how on earth is it Friday already?! Thanks so much if you joined in with last week’s challenge. It was fun seeing how people used the fireworks theme.
I hope you are all doing ok, especially if you are now in a lockdown again. In Scotland, we are continuing to live with restrictions but so far we are not in a lockdown which I am very grateful for. However if the numbers show we need to break an upward cycle and have a period of lockdown again then we will cope, this won’t last forever.
Anyway in the meantime we have another Daring Cardmakers Challenge and as it’s the first Friday of the month we have a photo inspiration challenge. Take (at least) 3 elements from this photograph and use them to create a card.
What a gorgeous scene! I decided to use the turquoise from the Christmas baubles, the JOY from the pillow and the flourish pattern from the rug. I started with some patterned paper from the Vintage Turquoise Pretty Papers Pad from Craftbox UK.
I used the Christina Collection alphabet dies to cut the J and Y and then instead of the O I used a Tattered Lace snowflake die from my stash. I layered it all up with some silver card, centura pearl in blue and white glitter card. To finish it off I added some gems to the snow flake and the card base.
I hope you will join us this week. It’s a great excuse to make some Christmas cards and a lovely distraction from the scary stuff happening out there in the world.
Thanks so much for everyone who leaves a comment, it means a lot to me.
