Christmas Card - "Use Metal"
Life is settling a bit. My mum is home and getting stronger each day following her heart surgery last month. She lives quite close so I'm able to pop by when she needs help. Thanks so much to those of you who have been asking about things.
This week at My Craft Spot, we are challenging you to use metal (real or faux) on your creations. I decided to use some of my red and silver metallic cardstock to create a Christmas card. I cut a metallic red mat and also cut some Christmas designer paper for my background. I then used the Small Alphabet metal dies to cut out my sentiment, using the same metallic red cardstock as I used for the mat. The colours likely look different due to my incredibly limited photography skills!!
Using a variety of metal dies - Tiny Doilies 2, Small Alphabet and Snowflake Border, I cut some snowflakes out of metallic silver cardstock. For an extra splash of colour, I added a red gem to the centre of each. The large, layered snowflake is popped for added dimension.
Please head over to My Craft Spot to see the rest of the design team creations - and don't forget to use metal on your own project this week in order to link up to be eligible for this week's gift certificate to the My Craft Spot Shop!!
Have a wonderful day!
