CRAFTY ADDICTS FACEBOOK GROUP #2



The theme for this challenge is ANYTHING GOES - with the option LET IT SNOW

Our sponsor for this challenge is
LACY SUNSHINE 


For this challenge it had to be one last Christmas card. I love Christmas and all the wintry scenes that go with it. All white and the lovely red of the Poinsettias and the green of the Holly.

So this is what I decided to do for my DT inspiration post.
A typical Christmas card with all the above named elemnents.


This is a cutting file for my Silhouette Cameo that I purchased some time ago from  
CRAFTS U PRINT
 It is a design by a lady called LYNN SIMMS. She makes some beautiful card files at very reasonable prices. I love her files.

So I started off and cut out the base card in red cardstock. I folded this along the score line making a DL card and turned it on its side.
Then I cut a layer in a red marble effect cardstock and finally the top white fancy layer.
I matted and layered the white card to the marble effect red card then adhered the mat to the red base card.
I have some very pretty papers from MAJA DESIGN which I purchased from LIVE AND LOVE CRAFTS another place I love to shop for my stash.
I wrapped some gold ribbon around a long thin piece of card across the top of the white mat then I arranged holly leaves, fern and little rolled acorns all cut out on my Cameo. These came as part of the card file. I placed a piece of the gold ribbon in the centre of the leaves and fern and added a deep red burlap and paper Poinsettia on top of the gold ribbon.
I cut out a SEASONS GREETINGS sentiment in the marble red card, some Holly in the bottom right corner and a snowy scene small picture tilted at an angle to the bottom left corner.

I think this card has a very pretty effect.
I hope you like what I did and will gain some inspiration from it.
