Here's my card to share with you this week using this elegant color scheme:
The ornaments in the photo really inspired me as well as the color. I used some Dazzles stickers from my stash (I'm been really good lately about trying to use up what I have before buying more) - aren't they lovely? I made the larger ornaments first by placing them on a piece of red cardstock and cutting around them. I found this to be a bit too tedious, so I just placed the smaller ornaments directly on the card base when I added them (can you image cutting around those little things? Not for me, thank you :o) ). The scalloped layer was sitting on my desk (its hard for me to toss out those negative images). I just jazzed it up a bit by running it through a snowflake embossing folder. I'm a bit bummed that the sentiment didn't show up more. It was stamped with gold embossing ink, but I didn't emboss it as it was very late and I didn't want to fire up my heat gun and wake everyone up. So I just used some of that "hot air" of mine and huffed on it til I was out of breath and decided to go to bed and hope that it looked darked in the morning - lol. In real life it does show up better than in this photo, but still not as dark as I would have liked. Overall I'm really please with how this turned out - hope you like it too.
The other lovely ladies on the 52CCT DT have made some gorgeous creations to share with you as well. Please go visit them too - you'll be glad that you did :o)
I hope you will decide to play along with us this week. Til next time...hugs and happy crafting! D
