My first day back to work went well. Lots of hugs and happy smiles from all my colleagues. I got a lot of "hey, where were you?" from my students but I know they missed me!
Today I am sharing a card I created for "Always Playing with Paper: The Challenge #50." It was to use a color scheme of red, kraft, silver and white to create a card. At first, I was scratching my head. Then I had an epiphany. Here is what I created:
I apologize for the left part of the photo. The red ornament was reflecting off the silver and I was too lazy to go back and photograph it!!
First I die cut the background using a PTI die from silver and white card stock. I then mounted using the positive and negatives from the colors onto a white card base.
Next I used some red thread and made some nests and adhered it to the card using glue dots. I layered a stamped, embossed and die cut vellum poinsettia over the thread. I adhered a sentiment strip over the poinsettia.
I then covered the middle of the poinsettia with Diamond Stickles, added Pretty Pink Posh sequins over that and then covered the sequins with glossy accents.
I am in LOVE with this card. I had never used this stamp before and I am going to make a few more of these cards because I am so in love with it!! However, I think I am going to try to make some that are more monochromatic.
Again, I am entering this into "The Challenge #50," as well as Virginia's View Challenge #20 that is all about texture. I think the thread, the layered embossed flowers and the sequin treatment can be counted for that.
I thank you for stopping by today!! Have a wonderful Thursday!!
