Here late .. .. .. again!!!
I spent a bit too much of my evening creating a card for taking over to Fezziwig's Festive Frolics Challenge .. .. .. where Hazel is looking for Christmas projects using summer colours.
I must admit I was stumped for a while but eventually came up with this little creation.
Memory Box Die "Clairmont Ornaments"
Sentiment Stamp: Dovecraft "Winter Blooms"
My Trusty Sewing Machine
A die cut from the "heart tin"
I desperately wanted to add small ribbon bows to the top of each bauble but I am trying hard to make some "postage friendly" cards for my collection.
Plus all that white space was also freaking me out a little, but once the card stood on the mantlepiece, which is where my cards usually go for a couple of days before they get stashed away, I decided it was OK after all.
You hit Hazels brief on the head,beautiful summer colours and a stunning CAS Christmas card,love the vibrant green against the white space
This is a gorgeous Jules, must admit I've been scratching my head over this theme! Anyway your card has just the right amount of sparkle to make it look fabulous xx
A lovely card and such pretty colours too. I've got a Memory Box 'Crisp Bows' die which I often use if I want a bow on an ornament - it's not the same as a proper ribbon one but it does keep the card flat.
Odd challenge to make Christmas cards in summer colours but you've done a great job with this super die. Know what you mean about white space but I'm gradually becoming a bit more comfortable with it. Do like my layers though. If you have a tiny 'bow' die amongst your collection you could always add a one layer die cut one to each bauble. I often look through my die sets to remind me what is lurking which could come in handy for another purpose (magazine freebie sets often come up trumps).
Fabulous card ...love the colours ....
I found my flowers ...took me all day ... made a card last night .... thanks for the idea ...
Hugs Sylvie xx
I glad you put your cards on the mantle, I too do this everyone thinks I have an occasion every day! Lol xx
Morning Jules...what an unusual challenge but you've nailed it...love the summer colours you've chosen.. sometimes it is hard to know when to 'stop' when you've got white space on your card..your card is perfect.
Great color combination for the summer colors challenge. I love the glitter. I know what you mean about keeping the cards flat for mailing, I hate spend the extra postage for a lumpy Christmas card.
Oh yes, this is a lovely card, wonderful colours and the glitter makes it extra special ! Hugs, Enny
A really lovely CAS card with great dies and love all the glitter.
Ohhh goodness, how pretty is this card, I love those colours, they are super. I too struggle not to keep adding with lots of white space. When I now want to add more I leave it for a few hours and come back, then I usually have changed my mind and leave it :) Thanks for sharing with me over on Fezziwigs Festive Frolics this fortnight, Hazelxx
so very pretty...
Your card is a delight to look at. I love the summery colours. Hugs Mrs A.
Waouh ! J'adore cette carte.
Très belles couleurs.
Wow, this is a bobby dazzler!! Loving the pink and green combo, works brilliantly with that fabulous die xx
