FILL YOUR DAYS

Morning blog friends....

Either this year, or last, I showed you how I made a Christmas card using non-traditional papers/colours, well, today's card is using a Christmas paper but it's not for Christmas.  Another, I think, for the males, even with the swirly bits!  But these could easily be removed

I do apologise for using cream and black card again, but actually it's peach coloured card by Creative Expressions and their black card!

This is a 5"x7" top folding card with a smaller panel of black card then the designer paper

When you take a good look at the design of the paper you can see stars on it although the whole design is subtle

The paper pad is by Craft Sensations and called Christmas Party, bought at The Range

Once the black card and paper were adhered to the card base I wrapped black jute (CE) around it three times and secured it at the back with tape and added the metal charm (make unknown but possible with CE or Ranger) as shown 

I die cut one of the tags from Spellbinder's 'Fancy Tags Three' twice in the peach card and twice in the black.  These were adhered to overlap to create a shadow and the sentiment (unknown make) was stamped using a black ink pad

The two die cuts were then glued together to form the shape as shown on the card 

I added another panel of peach card to the inside of the card to conceal the twine

I scored the back of the card about half an inch from the top then added score pal tape to this so that I could adhere front and back card together 

 Whilst the card has a distinct yellow look in the flesh it is a delicate peach! 

Until tomorrow....

  4. Yes, me too, im seeing it in a yellow colour???
    No matter though as, its really the design, ppl like me need, who have no skill or inspiration of our own.😡😡😡
    Not that im copying what ive read but, i too would use this as a males card BUT, if i saw it in the peach colour, it may have a totally different "feel" to it.
    I Thank you for it, as much as any of your other designs. Not only are you so kind by sharing your beautiful creations with us but, you have the added tasks of taking the photos at the 'right' angle or making the videos for us and, im very grateful for them All xxx

  7. Same here it does look yellow. A lot of my cards look a different colour when I photograph them. Whatever it is a lovely card and as has been said would make a great mans card. Thank you.
