Happy weekend everyone! After the madness of Halloween and Trick or Treating, we’re rounding off half term with a firework display at our local Scout group – unlike the big displays, they don’t feel the need to include explosions that make your chest feel like it is going to implode, so the little ones (and slightly bigger ones!) don’t get scared!! I can smell the sausages on the BBQ already 🙂
The card I’m sharing today is another crisp, simple Christmas card.
This time, I’ve made poinsettia flowers using one of the Tonic Petal Punches, using three layers (1 green and 2 red layers of leaves) and then popping some gold seed beads into the centre for the flower. These have to be the best punch investment I have made this year – they’re so flexible, I’ve been able to create a variety of flowers, simply by changing the paper or popping beads in the centre or combining different petals together! I mounted the completed poinsettias on a kraft ring, cut using the Silhouette, to retain the circular shape.
The wreath was mounted on the textured white card background with 3D foam pads. For the sentiment, I combined print and stamp – I only had the word Christmas as a stamp but felt that it needed a little more than that. So I printed “with love at” on a tag shape, then used the print and cut option on the Silhouette, adding “Christmas” by hand afterwards. I recut the outline of the tag in a contrasting colour, to frame the sentiment, then added it to a strip of festive red satin ribbon.
I’d like to enter this card into the following challenges:
