She gave us a nice Christmassy one to play with and asked us to design our cards on a theme of:
but with a hint of Pink.
A good chance to practise leaving white space, I thought - I'm still struggling with that concept!
I've tried to keep the design really simple, in my head it was even simpler, but there was too much of that dreaded white space so I had to fill some of it up a bit!
I've made a couple of cards - thought I should make the effort to add to my box of cards
The trees are from last year's Cuttlebug "Winter" set, I cut them first in card, then in felt and stuck the two layers together. I mounted them onused white glitter card and bright pink Bazzill The gorgeous pink and white striped ribbon is from Ribbon Oasis
My 2nd card is a mini DL shape. The xoxoxox ribbon was some I had left over from my Bubbly Funk "Hugs & Kisses" kit from a few months ago. This time it's the new Cuttlebug tree, cut i white felt and card as before. I wound thin pink wire around the tree, added a pink flet pot, a few beads and a few blobs of pink glitter glue.
I'm planning on doing a few more using the same sort of design - I still need to bulk out my "Christmas Cards Made" box - my plan to get them all finished before the end of November looks like a failure atm.
Do head over to the DCM blog if you can and see what the others have come up with. We'd love you to join in with the dare and maybe this will help you bulk up your Christmas card stock too!
