Getting ready for Christmas

Today I am delighted to share for project as a Guest Designer for Crafting by Designs, the theme is Getting ready for Christmas'.

I have been seeing a few cards around that look like giant bows and really wanted to try this, so I found a design by Sandras Scrap Shop, she has some really beautiful designs, I must admit I purchased a couple.

There are about 10 different cut files for this card, so it was very time consuming, also I think the card I used was way too thick because it was tricky to bend, so next time I think I will use paper for the bow and just card for the base.

The papers are from Polkadoodles and the image is called 'Christmas Tree Sprite' by Aurora Wings and has been coloured with Copics and a little silver gel pen.

I added some snowflake and mistletoe die cuts, a greeting and some pearls to finish.

I am really pleased with how this turned out and will definitely try it again using paper.

Thank you so much Doris for inviting me be a Guest designer.

  1. This is gorgeous, Julie!! Such a stunning work. Love the dimensionality of the bow, and I'm such a sucker for blue & white for Christmas anything, so I find this particularly appealing.
