Final day of Martin’s challenge and I made a really cute little card for the theme of Wreathed in Joy.
I definitely struggled with doing Martin’s daily challenge and so after the first week and a bit I’ve not really managed to do much …. but I’ve kept the challenge so it’s always something I can go back to be inspired by. It’s also been amazing seeing everyone’s interpretation of the themes and given me plenty of ideas to try out in future.
It is a 4×4 card and using the fabulous bright and cheery Parakeet Party cardstock… not exactly your traditional colour for Christmas .. but it is cute and I love it.
I used the Arrange a Wreath stamp to stamp the wreath to the right of the panel and a few additional leaves which I fussy cut out to add.
Then the sentiment I added to a banner that I made with the banner punch.
Next up I found some bows I had already die cut from scraps one one of which was a light blue colour and the other white. I added the green ink to both … the blue one heavily so it became very vibrant and darker and the white with a blending brush for a softer look. I added blending too over the stamper wreath to give the card some depth of colour.
I raised up the banner for dimension and added some of the little iridescent snowflakes onto the wreath for embellishment.
So cute and with that … Martin’s Mayhem Christmas challenge is over! What a fab challenge it has been when I’ve joined in. If you go on Instagram and use the hashtag you will see all the amazing cards people have made. It has been so inspirational!
Just three more to finish for my own challenge and I think we can safely say I’ve done my Christmas crafting for the year!
