As you probably realise by now (haha) I've been using the new Funky Hand Christmas downloads a LOT recently, so that file is often open on my pc. Rather than go on a paper hunt for suitable things to use, it just seemed obvious really to open the blue collection; "Winter Wonderland" and see if I could use them for a non-Cword card.
This is how it turned out
I just LOVE downloads as they allow you so much scope to play around with them - which is what I've done to create the base "layer" of colour on this card.
To begin with I did a bit of on-screen editing to make one of the "textured" designs into a perfect square. I resized this to 13x13 cm sq, then positioned it so that it would print with a border onto a sheet of A4. Once printed I folded and cut the card down to make a card with a 0.5cm border all around the printed square.
I then used a couple of the other designs to make the layers and shapes for the rest of the card. I try to always use the same paper or card to print on for any particular project to ensure that the printing quality and colour stays the same. Different papers print in different ways so mixing designs printed on card and paper may not look uniform - better to stick to one type per project.
Materials and Tools
Papers: "Winter Wonderland" from Funky Hand
Lace and Ribbon from Creative Treasures
Baby feet, Teddy and Cross charms from "A Charming Place" (USA), Silver thread for attaching
Small silver brads
Sentiment printed onto plain white card
2cm circle punch
Quite a simple card, really, but I hope those concerned will like it.
