I can't believe we are already into March, where does the time go lately?
We have a new challenge starting over at SPARKLES CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE today and the theme is:
USE SILVER OR GOLD
I have been trying out a couple of ideas for batch making Christmas cards that are quick and also flat to post - I don't want to be sending them at the large letter rate!! I think my DT card today might fit the bill:
This is a 12cm square card and in real life the tree die cut is quite glittery and sparkly against the slightly textured black background. This is the best picture I could manage, last night my camera was seeing the gold as a muddy green colour - not sure whether it was the lack of light or the camera having a strop!! As you can see, I've had another retro moment and added a peel off sentiment and corners. My original thought was to heat emboss a sentiment but when it came to it, the stamp I planned to use was a touch large. Then I thought about previous disasters embossing on black - I always seem to get a few stray dots of cooked embossing powder on the background, no matter how much I use anti static dusters etc. Suddenly peel offs seemed to be the way to go and goodness knows I could do with using up a few!
