Our theme this time is ....
Christmas in July
I know some people groan when Christmas is mentioned this early in the year but if you make something for this challenge that's one thing less to do nearer the big day.
I used the Shawn Jenkins CD to purchase your copy click on the image below.
I decided to try something a little different for this card so rather than printing off the lovely backing papers and matching topper, I just went to the embellishments folder on the CD. The lovely image of the ice skates is already there in the form of a bauble so I took that as my starting point.
In addition to the Ice skate bauble I also printed the snowflake bunting and the diamond patterned bunting. I added the letters to the diamond pattern bunting using my craft studio. I printed one topper from the Believe folder.
I cut out all the elements the two baubles in the background and the blue bow at top centre were cut from the Believe topper. I added glitter to the two baubles and bow and also added glitter to the ice skates.
I embossed white pearl card with a snow flake folder and then matted this onto white glitter card and a pale lilac pearl card.
I used strings of silver sequins to 'hang' the baubles, then added the bunting and the glittered bow across the top. I raided my die cut box to see what embellishments I had, the leaves flowers and snow flakes were all left over from last year's Christmas crafting and were cut using a mixture of Tattered Lace and Joanna Sheen dies. I then just played around with what I had until I was happy with the design The Happy Christmas Banner was one left over from a pack from about 5 years ago which I bought at 'Lakeland'. Once I was happy and all the flowers were stuck down I added Gem and pearl centres to finish.
