For the card project this time I decided that I would try and go down the simple route. I was given these card cutouts from another card maker and I wanted to see what I could do with it.
Over on the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge Octobers Colour challenge this time is Silver. You can choose to use either a little or a lot – I chose to use a little.
I embossed the background green paper with a grass die to try and give the impression of foliage of the tree. I cut by hand a piece of maroon paper for the Christmas Tree stand. Over the tree I added some silver stickers that I thought gave the impression of tinsel and some holographic silver circles for the baubles. Then I added some Mowed Lawn Distress Ink to the bottom of the card before adding a gold Merry Christmas Sticker and this finished off the card.
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my project. And as always before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought
Handmade is so much better than mass produced. It has that personal touch that can only come from someone putting a part of themselves into the product.
