Its a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and we have been set the theme of White with a hint of colour.
Now I like a lot of colour, normally quite bright so a subtle card like this is outside of my comfort zone. It is of course full of bling and twinkle so that is definitely more like me LOL
The card is quite large at 8" square but that is perfect for special cards. The scalloped edge is already on the blank so I thought it would be perfect for a Julie Hickey stylee card with loads of Craftwork Cards card candy. I know they are only like discs of cardboard but that is exactly why I like to use them. You would be very hard pressed to use this many gems or brads on just one card wouldn't you?
Anyhoo, the starting point for this card is the word 'snow' which is a Christmas Tree decoration from ASDA. It's got a snow type texture to it, a bit like artex paint and had plain white sequins on it. Of course, this was not sparkly enough so I immediately covered them with bling from my stash.
I opted for the icy colour of pale blue and punched a border in an offcut and wrapped it with some white organza ribbon with metallic stars on. Last but not least I added some posh pre-made stars from a Craftime pack from QVC.
We are sponsored for this challenge by the fabulous Joanna Sheen who is offering a prize to the winner of a £10 gift voucher so we would love to see lots of entries and I look forward to visiting your blogs.
