Can you believe that in only 3 weeks, we will be preparing for the best day of the year!! Can’t wait!! (Although I have so much to do between now and then!!)
This week, we are casing a colour combo from either the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue or the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.
I’m still needing Christmas cards, so I turned to the 2017 Holiday catalogue. I decided to go with a non-traditional combination which I found on page 35.
Isn’t silver and Pool Party amazing!
I don’t usually start with the end in mind (well, except for the fact that it will be a card! lol!) and today was no exception! I decided to use the embossing paste and coloured it with a few drops of Pool Party ink. I also added in a bit of dazzling diamonds glitter. I then remembered that I got some Silver embossing paste in my pre-order of the 2018 Occasions catalogue, so I decided to give it a go as well. As I’m needing a few more cards, I made two of each base.
The silver is a slightly different texture to the regular embossing paste and it took a bit longer to dry.
Whilst I was waiting for the bases to dry, I had a look through my Christmas framelits. I decided to go with the retiring Quilt Builder framelits. I haven’t actually used the framelit which embossing quilting lines so I decided to make that my feature. And it looks amazing on silver foil!! The flower is also from the same set of framelits.
To create the banner at the bottom, I used the dotty thinlit from the Swirly Snowflakes thinlits and added a strip of white cardstock down the middle, which I stamped with the sentiment from the Merry Patterns stamp set.
Here’s all the cards that I made.
Next up is the talented Peta.
