Over at Digistamps 4 Joy there is a Monthly Progressive Freebie Challenge all about Christmas, my favourite type of cad to make. I had this image Christmas Paper from Margy Keiser for the March challenge as a reward for completing February’s.
The digi this month is a little unusual in that it is a sentiment panel rather than an image. This however presented me with the perfect opportunity to use some glittery plastic tree decorations that I bought last year. I knew they would make a fabulous sentiment for a large card and they were only 99p for 6 so a great bargain. They are very cost effective so you could make several of the same design quite inexpensively.
I coloured the sentiment panel with a grey Promarker originally intending to spray glitter on it. I then found the perfect card for my base which is shades of blue with metallic solver snowflakes on it. I matted this onto a silver mirrri card base and added the sentiment panel. The decoration had hanging loops on it and silver string but it was very easy to trim off with scissors. I then used my new snowflake Die’sire die from Crafters Companion and added a big gem to the centre.
I am looking forward to taking part in the challenge next month and getting the opportunity to build up my stash of Christmas cards. Thankyou DS4J for running this progressive freebie challenge J
