I can't believe it's Friday already! Where does the time go? I'm busy this week getting ready for a local craft fair and the days have flown by. It's time once again for As You See It Challenges and the sketch this week is really different, but beautiful:
That curvy bit is gorgeous, but it brings to mind the Sleigh Ride Edgelits, and as a Design Team, we decided to limit the use of those edgelits to one or two cards. So how do you get a curve like that without a die? I didn't trust my hand snipping to get a smooth curve like that and I didn't have any other dies that would do the job, so in the end, I had to use the Sleigh Ride Edgelit with the trees. I used the die upside down and simply snipped off the trees. So this card was not overtly Sleigh Ride Edgelits, but I did need to use them.
- I wanted to use the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper again with the musical score for Silent Night, and I pictured a rich colour scheme, so I chose Cherry Cobbler, Black and Gold to complement the Very Vanilla background.
- I used the Sleigh Ride Edgelits as mentioned above to form the curve on the Gold Foil Sheet, then embossed it with Black Stampin' Emboss Powder, using the sentiment from Versatile Christmas stamp set. It is mounted using Stampin' Dimensionals.
- The bells from Cozy Christmas were the most musical of all the images I had and I embossed them in Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and coloured in the bow and the clappers using a Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Marker. The image wage punched using the 1 1/2" Circle Punch and a little sponging of Cherry Cobbler ink around the edge helped to give it definition. It is mounted on a smaller Gold Metallic Foil Doily using dimensionals again.
- The flags are Cherry Cobbler cardstock and some Merry Moments Designer Series Paper.
