Well amazingly I am entering a challenge this week! I just haven’t had time for any extra lately, with my design team work for Just Add Ink and the Dirty Dozen. But I have missed them.
My club hostess this month asked if we could do a Christmas Card and so I went searching for a good sketch and found this great one at one of my favourite sites Freshly Made Sketches.
I coloured the girl with watercolour crayons and sponged the card a fair bit for an “antique” look. I used the core’dinations card stock for the first time too and I was happy with how it turned out.
I always like to teach my club something new and so I made it a Pop-up Gift Card Holder. This is how the card looks on the inside.
There is a great tutorial for this on Splitcoast here if you’d like to give it a try. I did change mine slightly though.
Stamps : Greeting card kids, Curly cute
Card : watercolour paper, vanilla, crumb cake, cherry core’dinations, festival of prints dsp stack
Ink : stazon, crumb cake
Other : sticky strip, aqua painter, watercolour crayons, linen thread, big shot, petals a plenty ef, square punch
This card was lots of fun to make and nowhere near as hard as I thought it was going to be :)
