World Card Making Day 2012; Challenge 1, Holiday Greetings
I'm thrilled to finally get some play time in my "rubber room" and participate in World Card Making Day! It seems like forever since I made a card.
In honor of WCMD, "The Classroom" is hosting a day of challenges from some awesome designers with a prize of a $150 gift card to Ellen Hutson's store up for grabs.
The first challenge was to "create a holiday greeting", and since Julie used a collage of holiday sentiments on her sample card, I took the "greeting" part of the challenge literally. Starting with a Tim Holtz alterations folder, I created an embossed greeting layer and colored with a real red marker from Stampin' UP! a couple of the words for emphasis. Then I die cut a poinsettia using Spellbinder's dies, adding some gold bling to the center. A scrap of ribbon for leaves and a cherry cobbler card base and done! Whew! Boy am I rusty! But it definitely feels good to get inky.
Thank you for stopping by.
