It's late on a Tuesday, or perhaps early on a Wednesday which can only mean it's new challenge time over at Addicted to Stamps and More. We've moved onto the next theme in our regular sequence which is...
(a public holiday such as Christmas or Easter, or vacation themed cards this week please)
Our sponsor this week is the fabulous A Day for Daisies who are kindly offering a $12.00 gift certificate as a prize for this week's winner.
Easter has passed and so has Mother's Day here in the UK so I decided to add another Christmas card to my 'very small' stash of 3 so far this year! It did seem a little odd creating a Christmas card when Spring has finally sprung but it's never to early to build that collection is it?!
Here's my DT card this week...
I used my shiny new Mini MISTI for the first time to create this card. It's so great for getting crisp images but I will say, it's not very user friendly when stamping off the edge as there's not enough free space around the card area, the original MISTI would be better for that. But I must say it's well worth purchasing...I will certainly be using it when stamping within the card area and especially sentiments so as not to ruin my cards right at the end!
This design was pretty simple. On a panel of cardstock I stamped the leaves. I then stamped the poinsettias and die cut them out with their co-ordinating die, and then did the same with the sentiment banner. I adhered the panel to the card base using 3D foam strips and then adhered the poinsettias, one on 3D foam as was the sentiment banner. I finished by adding some dots of gold Stickles to the flower centres.
