Christmas in July Challenge for cardztv.blogspot.com

Hi
I love Christmas and there have been so many challenges going around but I really like Mary from Cardz TV. She is awesome. I made this card using my metallic stack by DCWV.  I chose the gold textured for my card which measures 6′ x 5 1/2″. I also used a Christmas pack from K& Company I bought last year. I used the red snowflakes background but I used silver Stickles to make the snowflakes pop. I cut my Christmas tree using my Potpourri cartridge at 4.5″. The jewels are a find from Downtown Los Angeles  garnet district (the have awesome crafting supplies here and for 1/2 the price than the big stores).  Finally, I just printed Feliz Navidad onto plain paper using my Cool Dots font at size 16. I used green card stock for the shadow of the tree and the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy!

 

365 Cards Challenge – Day 129 – Aged Look Card

I love 365 Cards Challenges because they always give me a visual image to work with. I did an “old” Victorian house using the Heritage cartridge. I folded an 8.5 x 11″ sheet in half from Colorbook – yellow paper – and cut the light blue layer from a piece of scrap I also had from Colorbook pastels. The layer is 5″ X 8″. The house is found on page 39 and was cut at 4.5″  I embossed with my Cuttlebug using the Houndstooth folder. I distressed the house using Martha Steward metallic inks. I cut my own curtains and the “stained glass” in the windows with older scraps from Martha Steward glitter paper. Here is mine take on the “old” challenge:
