This week at http://craftyhazelnutschristmaschallenge.blogspot.co.uk/ the theme is Penguins or anything else beginning with P.
So I sat down and made a list and am currently searching through the bag of recycled cards to find images to fit the theme.
Hers is the first one I made.
The image is the front of an A6 size card but I matted it onto silver card and a pretty paper that was the insert from inside another card and then put it onto a 5x7 card, the snowflake embellishment was snipped from yet another card and added using a dab of gel glue to add dimension. I trimmed the edge of the backing paper with silver peel offs to finish.
It is quite surprising how many subjects beginning with P can be found on Christmas cards - and several of them will be making an appearance on here over the next week.
I am entering this into the following challenges

- I have been crafting since May 2008, when in desperation to find an unusual birthday card for my Mum, I gave up looking in the shops and decided to have a go at making my own. I soon realised that crafting is addictive and I haven't brought a card since. I am slowly starting to sell my cards now to friends, family and work colleagues. As my confidence has grown I have started to enter Challenges on line and in magazines, and I love having to think outside of my comfort zone to come up with something different. I really like the current trend for vintage and shabby chic. I really enjoy using die cutting in my designs and am just starting to poke my toe in the water with regards to stamping and colouring my own images.
