Over at the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge their theme is 'Christmas' and I've already entered a few times. However, when I get an idea in my head for a card, I can't make anything else until its been attempted, so here is another entry:
This is my second card using the Pretty Pink Posh 'Twine die' in a different way. I hope Paulina doesn't think I'm crazy!!!!
For some reason, when I tried the twine die out I immediately saw trees....(please don't tell me I'm the only one who see's this...) and thought they would make great Xmas trees. I cut some paint chips in three different green shades and cut them to a point at the halfway point of the die shape. Hope that makes sense....
I very gently blended some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink to the card front to simulate the sky and used the Pretty Pink Posh 'Stitched Curved Die' on a piece of white CS. After I glued the tree's in place, I heat embossed the sentiment (from Neat and Tangled 'Happy Ornaments') in gold and put the panel on some foam tape. A few gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh gave it a touch more shine. I also added lots of Wink of Stella to the tree's but couldn't capture the twinkle with my camera!
I actually have one more idea of something to create with the 'twine die' but it will have to wait till I have more time later this week. I have lots of emails to check and comments to leave so better hop to it!!
