I wanted to enter the challenge this week at Joan's Gardens . Her criteria intrigued me as I am not sure that I have made an all white card or if I have I don't remember it. Here are the requested items:
- Make a Christmas Card
- Use all white
- Use something from nature (deer, bear, bird etc)
- Use glitter or stickles
I used Papertrey Ink products from the paper to the dies and the stamped sentiment inside which are part of their "In the Meadow" sets. Love the clean way the dies cut. I also used 3 different embossing folders. the one I used on the tree is actually a full embossed tree in itself, I simply slipped my die cut tree into the folder where I wanted it to be and ran it through the Bigshot. The swiss dot and divine swirls where used for the background and my snow. I used mica glitter on the swirls to create my snow. I just love the deer in this set. I added some white pearls from Want2Scrap where we all picked up some bling on our last shopping trip.
Now to my second holiday card, I am showing you another of the beautiful sets that Laurie released this month at Doodle Pantry featuring this gorgeous color French Horn. This is a previously released set which she brought back in color form for August along with a card kit, if you have not seen those yet.....please check out this month's releases which you can find here .
This is a great card to mass produce using whatever background paper you desire as there are several color variations in this set. I used some of my fave retired SU papers along with cherry cobbler and black card stock. Choose your favorite die and layer for a quick card.
I used the same die to cut my sentiment (which comes in the new "Holly Stag" set and one that I want to use soon) and a black layer....call it done.
There are still specials going on at Doodle Pantry and our challenge is still going on at the DP Challenge Blog until the 24th of August, so be sure and take a look.
I may just have my cards ready this year, wouldn't that be great!!
Hope you will come back soon to visit.
Thanks for stopping by!
