I hope you've all had a lovely day with lots of crafting.
The painting continues so I'm still holed up in the craft space ... because of the fumes I even resorted to eating lunch up here today ... such a hardship :))
As you can see I've been busy. It's not like me to do this, but I have used all the toppers on a sheet and made five cards altogether. It all started with Hazel's challenge, CHNC Challenge # 87, to make a card for a couple. I spotted Rose and Alfie on a visit to the craft centre on Sunday and thought they would be perfect for the challenge and make a nice addition to my Christmas card drawer - after all I have a few couples to send cards to and two of the toppers, the ones with a snowman, would even be suitable to send to a child.
Here are the cards individually.
Whilst the basic materials are all the same, the papers and embellishments are all different ... I'd find it nigh impossible to make five identical cards and take my hat of to all those of you who make hundreds of identical cards, e.g. wedding invites, etc. This is the nearest I'll ever get to that.
For all cards:
Card Bases: white scalloped-edged cards - the smaller ones measure 5"x5" square and the larger are 8¼"x5½"
Toppers: Kanban Rose and Alfie Christmas Toppers
Card #1: Kanban Snowflakes and Swirls Mirri card; gold mirri card; gold ribbon; green heart-shaped gems and green flat-backed gems; iridescent glitter
Card #2: Docrafts Papermania Noel 12"x12" paper pack; snippet of smooth white card; Spellbinders Regal embossing folder; gold peel-off edging; gold cord; gold flat-backed gems; iridescent glitter
Card #3: Docrafts Papermania Tree/Stripe Patterned Xmas Paper; red/gold printed ribbon; chipboard greeting from Papermania Noel collection; red flat-backed gems; iridescent glitter
Card #4: Kanban Bouquet Stripes Green card; gold mirri card; snippet of ivory pearlescent card; snowflake embossing folder; Spellbinders poinsettia die set; snippets of two shades of gold and green/white polka dotted card; green patterned ribbon from Ribbon Carousel; Docrafts green gem brads; green card candi; iridescent glitter
Card #5: Docrafts Papermania Noel 12"x12" paper pack; gold mirri card; polka dot embossing folder; gold and red organza ribbons; chipboard embellishments and greeting from Papermania Noel collection; gold card candi
I have managed to use quite a lot of snippets in making cards 2, 4 & 5 - most of them from my boxes of bits from test driving embossing folders and the mammoth die-cutting session I had lately ... I do like it when a plan comes together ... making them suitable for submission to Di's Snippet Challenge #35 - my third visit to the playground this week :)
That's me done for the day ... it's been a long one and I'm more than ready for my bed.
Take care wherever you are and thanks for looking.
