Christine chose the theme this time which was Snowy Trees.
A quick riffle through my box of used christmas card fronts turned up this snowy tree scene
which had the added bonus of already having a sentiment added.
I trimmed down and used a fiskars corner punch for extra interest. Backed onto silver pearlescent cardstock and then onto a sheet of silver holographic card stock. Finally adhered to light blue cardstock to make the base card. Premade navy bow and pearls from my stash completed the look.
I already had the following card in my never shown file as it was for a swap I did back in January.
The theme was use stencils and winter
I made the base up using acetate for the front and sandwiched the embossed card in between.
The stencil is by Imagination Crafts which I coloured in with a grey promarker. The white base card
had a fine grain effect on it so the grey showed up really well. backed onto navy pearlescent cardstock. Silver stickers were in my stash along with the blue sentiment tag. The sentiment was generated in word and I used Su's Modern labels punch to die cut out. I used blue cardstock to make the rest of the base card with.
Two more cards for the pile and still sticking to my resolution of making one card with a recycled christmas card and one using my stash of stamps. digis', die cuts and stencils.
