Going for Gold....and Silver!


I hate to say it, but "that" time of year is getting ever closer! Do you like to prepare in advance or are you someone who thrives on rushing around at the last minute? I have to confess to being somewhere between the two, but I'm getting better at spreading the load when it comes to cards and I'm finding that even easier this year thanks to Craft Artist. When I have a spare few minutes I'm designing card fronts - some come together in one go and some I come back to several times, usually because I run out of time in one session. At the moment this one is still just a card front created in CAP2 but it will be finding it's way onto a card blank soon.

What I've used:

  • Main bp from 8x8 silver collection, peel offs from Rhapsody in Blue and snowglobe from the Trad-temporary Christmas kit (all from Crafty Ann's)
  • Rudolph inside the globe is from Robyn's Fetish and coloured digitally. The snow inside the globe was done using one of the new brushes in CAP2
  • The gorgeous flourish is from All in the wood by Miriam's Scraps and was changed to gold in CAP2.
  • The red flowers are from Christmas Gifts from Daisy Trail
I'm entering my card into these challenges:
Thank you for dropping by today and I hope your day is a good one
