Little Angel

Hello everyone,

This is my last Christmas card this year, not that I made enough, but I am so far behind that the best option is to buy cards and  to  get them to my friends and family in time. The challenge at For Fun Challenges is week is to create a Christmas card – so for all of you that need more Christmas cards why not enter into the challenge. There is also a DT call at the For Fun Challenges. If you are interested to become part of a lovely design team and have lots of fun hop over to For Fun Challenges for details. I am stepping down from the For Fun Challenges design team (this was really a tough decision) due to my professional workload. My six months with the design team was so much fun and I had learned so many new things from the design team ladies – I am going to miss you all. I will still be around in blogland to join challenges and visiting your lovely blogs for inspiration.

For this week’s Christmas card I choose a green, pink, maroon and silver colour combination. For the layout I used a Lili of the Valley sketch by Dena. I am trying to do more sketch challenges as I am always struggling with sketches – don’t know why because sketches are supposed to make layout easier!

I also enter my card for the following challenges:

 A close-up to see the Crystal glitter on the flowers and the angel’s wings and garland.

 

I used the following to create the card:

  • Lili of the Valley stamp ‘Angels praying’ (So80)
  • Computer generated sentiment
  • Peel Off’ silver corners
  • White and green cardstock
  • Wilson and Maclagan Designer paper CB122 – Paper pack Brown
  • Silver gemstone
  • Silver cord
  • Petaloo Velvet Hydrangeas – Chantilly Collection
  • Cuttlebug “Floral Borders”
  • Marianne Design Creatables LR0106 “Leaf”
  • Lyra Rembrandt-Aquarell watercolour pencils for colouring
  • Skwiglues Glitter glue “Crystal PCR01”

Hope to see your card at For Fun Challenges this week. Enjoy your week and happy crafting

Greetings from sunny South Africa,

Amelia

    My new years resolution is to work from sketches/page layouts as well, as I too struggle!
