Kraft Christmas card with gilding flakes

Hello and welcome.

I loved making my card for this week’s colour challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown

I just had fun adding flitterglu in a random pattern over a piece of crumb cake card, which is the nearest I have to a kraft coloured card.

I then added gold gilding flakes and pressed gently with my fingers, before removing some of the excess flakes.

I popped up a stitched star die cut, added a simple greeting and some gold sequins.

The gilding flakes pattern is different every time, so each card is unique – which I love.

I hope you’ve been inspired and that you join us over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.

Enjoy your weekend

Winter Wonderland in rose gold

The colour challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week is grey, rose gold and white …

This was the perfect excuse for me to shop for some new craft supplies …

I chose pretty rose gold cardstock.

But I am still on a mission to use more of my paper scraps. Flicking through my collection of paper pieces, I found this grey and white polka dot dsp by Stampin’ Up, which was actually from a 12″x12″ Halloween pack – Howlstooth and Scaringbone – from many moons ago! It was just perfect for the background. My dad always used to say, keep anything long enough and you’ll find a use for it!

Next came the die cuts – stitched square in smoky slate, stitched star in glitter rose gold, vellum snowflake, and the reindeer in rose gold mirror card.

I popped up the die cuts on foam adhesive, added some punched circles and a hand-cut sentiment. A jingle bell I found in a pot of bits and bobs, was tied to one of the antlers with baker’s twine. 

I’m joining the Happy Little Stampers March challenge with their Anything Goes with Dies challenge, and changed things up a bit with added pearls to join the Tic Tac Toe challenge at Christmas 24  – I think it adds a certain something.

 

 

 

I hope you like my card for this week and feel inspired to join us at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.

Enjoy your weekend.
