I hope this finds you well and enjoying a fabulous weekend.
I can't believe it's almost two weeks since my last post. Bet you thought I'd left the planet, stowing away on the Soyuz rocket that took Tim Peake to the International Space Station no doubt but, no, I'm still here on planet Earth and just about getting by. The EM and I haven't been so well recently but we're both recovering and can look forward to enjoying Christmas again.
How they were made:
- Two 5" square black card blanks were covered with patterned paper, from Trimcraft's The Night Before Christmas Trimcraft 8" x 8" pad. The paper was trimmed to leave a ¼” margin of the black card uncovered.
- The greeting, IndigoBlu's Dinkie I Wish You A Merry Christmas, was stamped on to two snippets of black cardstock using Color Box Frost White ink pad. Next, I trimmed the greeting to size and then matted and layered on to snippets of white and red cardstock to create the toppers. They were then mounted, using dimensional sticky pads, on the front of the cards.
- Both cards are finished off with some Paper & Script black and white wrapping twine I found in my local WH Smith's.
That's all there was to the cards. A big stamped greeting like the one I used for the cards is perfect when time is at a premium - it makes the perfect topper!
I plan to submit the cards to the following challenges:
