Happy Sunday all!
I hope you're all enjoying the weekend & are doing whatever you want to do on a Sunday!
Being Sunday, we at The Crafty Pad Challenge Blog have a new challenge for you!
The theme - Christmas in July?
Get a head start on your Christmas cards..:) :)
Our sponsor is the very lovely Joanna Sheen
who is offering one lucky winner a £10 gift voucher to spend in her shop.
Here's my card
I used Debbie's Elf Sitting On Gift image available from The Crafty Pad Designs here
He's just soo cute!
I wanted to colour him in traditional colours but as at Christmas, anything goes
I coloured the gift in non traditional colours!
I then had to figure out how to tie it together!
I do wish I could plan a card properly before I start but no,
every one is a journey! lol
The Ticket is one of Debbies too & is available here.
As you can see, when it's open, I have made an offset gatefold card. (not sure what the proper name is)
The design papers are from a Scrapbookingmad download
they just went perfectly with the colours on the gift!
I punched out some little white snowflakes which I stuck on using my Quickie Glue Pen
I used promarkers for colouring & I added little touches of Glamour Dust
to the holly berries on the ticket & to the elf's hat & shoes.
It just wouldn't be Christmas without a bit of glitter now would it?
I've been looking for my Glamour Dust for ages as I hadn't used it yet.
Lo & behold when I went in to my Christmas Stash there it was! Yay!
I used a little bit of all my colours on the ticket to try to pull everything thing together!
I added some little gems to the centre of the snowflakes
& added some ribbon to match the ribbon on the gift!
Then decorated the inside of the card to finish it off!
I do hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by!
