No prizes for guessing how I spent much of my time today - I just love a wedding : ) You don't have to be a Royalist to enjoy the spectacle. The bride was beautiful, her gown was stunning, the bridegroom was handsome in his uniform and the ceremony was perfect.
After it was all over I was back up to my craft room to make this week's Christmas Card! I know, from the sublime to the ridiculous :)
Crafty Hazel gave us a very hard task this week. She asked for a 'touch of Easter for Christmas'. Specifically: 'use either the colour yellow - little or a lot (you can use other colours as well, as long as yellow is visible) and/or an oval shape on your card.'
This really had me thinking and mainly what I thought was, 'I can't do this.' I almost considered skipping the challenge this week until I remembered Crafter's Companion's character, 'Souffle', Popcorn's little friend. So here's my interpretation of Hazel's challenge.
There's yellow - lots of it - and there's an oval. The image of Popcorn and Souffle is decoupaged - this fact doesn't show up well in the photos though.
Most of the materials came from a Crafter's Companion Make Christmas Cards pack. All I added was the tartan ribbon,, the white cardstock (to make an A5 size card) for the base and some gold card for layering.
The inside and back are decorated with leftover design paper - the edge of the lemon paper decorated with my one and only Martha Stewart punch - and some topper from the pack.
I'm entering this card for the usual challenges:
- Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge #17- A touch of Easter for Christmas
- Snoflakes Christmas Card Challenge on Docrafts
Must hurry to get this submitted so I'll say happy crafting to you all.
