Muse 152 - Merry Christmas


Here's my card for this week's Muse Challenge, where Anita has given us this beautiful inspiration:



I just can't help it - when I see red and green together, I think Christmas! (Plus, I'm missing Muse: ChristmasVisions - not long until we start up on March 2!). My card has a dramatic tilt from the camera to try and capture the shine on the mirror card, which I think gives a classic, vintage feel.

I focused on Anita's:
-colour scheme
-layout
-red die cut
-green leaves
-red berries

I used:
-Hero Arts DC170
-Papertrey Tinsel and Tags Sprigs Dies
-MFT Blue Prints 11 for the tiny berries
-MFT Pierced Square

I love where the muse cards take you and this is another fabulous interpretation. So beautifully crisp and I love the way the holly leaf extends off the edge. LOVE! x

I wondered what you'd do with Anita's card! It's beautifully CAS, and in keeping with her design. Love the one holly leaf hanging off the edge. And shiny too! Trying to catch up my friend, hope your weekend is going wonderfully. Miss you! Bev

Wow! Amazing cards (strolled back to see all the ones I missed!). Your arrow card is a twin to the one I made for Eric! Adore this Merry Christmas card - especially the red paper and the over-the-edge leaves!!

While I did break down and reluctantly make a Christmas card today, I am mostly waiting for Christmas Muse to return. ;) Love this classic in red and green... especially those shiny holly leaves.

Cat Craig said...

That shiny mirror card is just fabulous, and I agree with the red and green...definitely Christmas time.
