I had a productive weekend and made cards for a couple of challenges. I suppose it’s fairly inevitable that there will be similarities since I’m not good at putting everything away after making the first card. So this card also uses the sleigh ride edgelits. It’s for the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.
And here’s the banner which inspired my card:
I actually already had the night of navy buildings cut out; I’d been toying with using them for my brother’s birthday card back in August and since I didn’t, they were on my pile of things to use later. I wanted to put gold foil behind the doors and windows and realised that I only needed to attach the foil enough that it didn’t move before I stuck down the night of navy piece. So there are little strips of gold foil which are a fair bit longer than necessary so that I could glue them in place far enough away from the openings such that I wouldn’t have to worry about glue showing. I then turned it over carefully and glued it down to the soft sky card base. I stamped the Christmas sentiment in night of navy – it’s from the Holly Jolly Greetings set. Then I cut out the merry from more gold foil using the Christmas Greetings Thinlits and stuck it down using the fine tip glue pen. It’s a lot easier to use this than anything I’ve tried previously.
See you tomorrow,
