I’ve been on a clean and simple kick using a lot of white recently and this is one of the ideas I came up with. It works nicely for this challenge as there is a lot of white in the mood board and I added a pop of red with a poinsettia. I got the inspiration for this style from something seen on Pinterest and this is my take on what I’ve seen. Using Hero Arts infinity star dies I cut two shapes on a 4″ x4″ piece of card stock. After adding foam tape to the back I pulled the gold thread through where the star shapes connected. I then added some corrugated (made by me) CS behind the die cut layer before adding it to the card front, which is a 1/4″ larger. As well I added the sentiment, which is from a Divinity Design set, prior to adding it to the card front. Using a Sizzix set of foliage dies I cut the holly piece in white, cutting it down slightly and tied it on using the thread and a bit of glue to hold it firm. The poinsettia is from Dee’s Distinctively and I had cut and put together quite a few ready for use. Once I had the little bow the way I wanted it I pulled the longer threads out so it gives more lengths. I did several variations of this style, all of them slightly different, and am happy with how they turned out. I think these cards are my favourites this year. Because these cards are all small squares and I didn’t have the right size envelope for them, I handmade envelopes using my board and some thin CS.
Thanks for taking a look and have a great upcoming weekend everyone.
