FFC38 - Merry Christmas!


Time for a new Festive Friday Challenge! Here's the inspiration photo!




For this card, I used my Stampin' Up tag punch with kraft cardstock. I added a Li'l Inkers snowflake (I cut this with Tracey's die when I met up with her a few weeks ago) that was stacked and embossed with iridescent ep. I used a Creatiate sentiment to complete my tag. For my card base, I tried to create a similar look to the black and white stripes from the photo, but less busy. I added 'smeared' Stickles to the edges of the white panel - this easy technique (ie put a thin line of Stickles down the edge of the cardstock and then pat/smear the Stickles with your finger), gives a pretty edge and subtle sparkle.

Now it's your turn - there's so much in this photo I know that the cards will be amazing! The deadline is Wednesday August 27 at midnight.

This is very classy Ardyth. Lovely.
All my Stickles lines tend to be smeared anyway, it's the thin lines I have trouble with :-)
Have a great weekend. Pat x

Beautiful take on the inspiration, Ardyth. The tag and snowflake are a wonderful focal point against the black trimmed white background. This is festive in a subtle way - love it.

Love this one, Ardyth. It's in my top 5 Christmas cards made by you. Love the black edges; they bring your eyes right to the white and kraft. This is just amazing. Have a great weekend. Bev
