Happy Monday everyone … Scratch that … Happy Bank Holiday Monday! Oh yes … I do love a bank holiday!
Monday’s are my colour play days… And even though it is a bank holiday I still have some colour to share! This week I have gone for a SUBTLE one … Lovely and relaxing this one…
A lovely blue which to me reminds me of the sky on a lovely spring morning! Having said that I went for a Christmas card … So maybe also the sky on a clear frosty morning too!
I was actually using the sketch from Tinsel Tuesday as I hadn’t got round to making any this month yet… Go check out the sketch here.
I started with the linen cardstock and stamped the beautiful Ornament Keepsakes bauble in the Marina Mist. I decided to handcut it out as was being lazy and not getting the Big Shot out … Silly because when I then created the three strips behind the bauble I decided to emboss them so I got it out anyway! Doh!
The strips were embossed with a random snowflake folder I’ve got, and then edged with the same colour blue. I then took another piece of linen cardstock and stamped the Sanded background stamp on it in the same colour and edged the piece with blue again.
I mounted this onto the card, and then decided that I needed a sentiment, so grabbed some new Papermania ones I got as a bargain and stamped it onto a strip, which I edged and then placed on the card. Finishing touch… A bit of bling!
Love how this came together… Beautiful, subtle and calming card!
