Warning - a lot of glitter was used in the making of this card! Fortunately it is either in the form of embossing powder or Stickles!
I loved Linda's tag but couldn't see at first how on Earth I was going to come up with anything.
I saw the little circle wreath at the top with the red bow and an idea came to me!
We had to stop putting a wreath on our door when we got our new door a couple of years ago - if only I had thought about Christmas in the middle of Summer I would have asked for a knocker, not that we need one to attract our attention in our small flat, but it would have been so useful at this time of of year.
Once again I used the tag, number 10 of Linda's 12 tags Of Christmas Funkie Junkie style, as inspiration to make a card.
The challenge closes tomorrow and it's looking as though I am going to manage to complete my tags. The challenge is being sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique.
I started with a kraft card onto which I stamped some wood using a Prima wood stamp and brown ink. I then added some random Cosmic Shimmer black sparkle glitter to give weathered look.
Well, that's if glitter can look weathered!
Next I grabbed a couple of my Winter greenery bags and found I had enough holly and mistletoe diecuts done to avoid getting my big shot out.
I used a corrector pen to add white berries and some snow on the leaves.
I then realised that I DID need my Bigshot out to cut some snowflakes! I have so many snowflake dies but found this combination worked well, I added Icicle Stickles and also used a little on my wreath.
I cheated slightly on the bow by tying a knot and snipping the ends (yes I am rushing things slightly!)
The words came from two different chit chat sets.
The glitter doesn't show up very well so I took a longer shot - it still looks shinier than this
I hope you are willing to forgive me for not making many blog visits at the moment - with just two more tags to go I am hoping to get back to 'normal' soon!
Thanks for looking, Chris
