So for each sketch I have created a card, and I challenge YOU to create something too, and link me to it using the inlinkz tool below. I'd love to see what you come up with. And there may even be a prize... Upload your card by midnight on Sunday 8th January.
Hi everyone: I have had this post scheduled for a while... so before you all think I'm back in the studio already, I am not!!! I am enjoying snuggling with my little one too much at the moment. :) But because I love The Ribbon Girl, I made this card before Lily's arrival so I didn't miss the challenge. Hope you play along... On to the scheduled post:
It's time for a new Ribbon Girl colour challenge, and this month the colours are red, cream and black. Yum.
My card is made using Hero Arts gorgeous Dogwood stamp. Love this stamp. I simply stamped it onto some lovely patterned paper, then again onto red cardstock and paper pieced. I added some red seam bindingand button twine, and some pretty pearly buttons, then rounded the corners to finish. A very simple card. Sometimes simple stamping is so pretty. :)
Hope you get a chance to enter the challenge - there'll be a fab prize as always!
If you're worried about postage costs with your Christmas cards, hybrid cards could be an option. On this simple card, I used the new Fancy Snowflake Digikit to create a snowy background for my snowman. I just resized it and layered it over some pale blue digi paper. The I just layered over the snowman and the snowy base, both from the Winterize digikit, and the sentiment which is taken from the new Festive Borders kit. After printing, I coloured the scarf and hat for extra brightness and added some simple black stitching for a little texture. Such a simple and totally flat card, easy to mass produce too.
