This month I decided to make some Christmas cards and enter them in the Christmas all year 'round challenge blog. You can find it here. If you follow the blog and make 5 cards a month, you will have 60 cards done by the time Christmas comes around. Great idea.
For the August challenge we were to use 4 of the 9 items listed. They were
C chip board
H hand stitching
T textured paper
M metal embellishments
A alphabet stickers
I actually used 5 of the items-ribbon, inking, stamping, metallic embellishments and textured paper.
This is the chipboard shape I made to Cuttlebug the wreath shape. I cut out two layers of chipboard and glued them together. I used Stampin Up Petals a Plenty embossing folder.
I put the white layer in the folder and then carefully lined up the chipboard on top of the folder to emboss exactly where I wanted it. Only the area under the chipboard embosses, giving the wreath shape.
I then inked the flowers and added Glitter Ritz to the centers in the same color I used for the accent layer and the little sentiment banner. I also sponged the edges of the white layer. It does not show up in the scan very well, but the gold on the purple card is Glitter Ritz. Very nice and sparkly.
I added the ribbon and sentiment banner, adhered everything together and it was done.
I hope you like my cards today and thanks for stopping by.
