MCV18 - Holiday Season
This is my card for MCV18, where Kimberly has given us this coppery, artistic inspiration:
This card took my breath away - I am fascinated by how Kimberly made such a festive, holiday-feeling card, with autumn-feeling colours!
I focused on Kimberly's
-theme (Christmas tree - mine is from Technique Tuesday Trendy Trees)
-colour scheme (copper and white with warm, autumn tones)
-use of embossing
I embossed the tree using copper ep, then coloured it with copics before coating it with Stickles. I then 'fussy' cut it (I put the fussy in quotes for because cutting straight lines is not fussy, but it's probably the only fussy cutting I will ever do! lol!).
I finished with a sentiment from Essentials By Ellen Mistletoe and Holly that I stamped at our most recent stamp day - I think it's Emily's set. I love this EH set, but I just purchased an Altenew set that has a very similar feel although it doesn't have these sentiments, so I may justify this purchase yet!
I hope you'll get a chance to join us this week - September has started and you know that means we're at the top of the rollercoaster that won't stop until December 26 (at least that's how it feels around here!). Time to get started on those holiday cards!
The deadline is Wednesday at 8 am. At that time you can vote for your 3 favourites until Thursday at 8. Voting results will be posted on Thursday at noon.
