It’s the start of a new month, a new year and a new challenge at Love to Craft. As always it is an anything goes in the widest sense of the term. So whatever your craft is this challenge is for you.
Because I am primarily a card maker, this time I want to share with you the Christmas card I made for my husband. I usually go for a more traditional religious image but saw this one and knew I had to use it. When we moved into our retirement home one of the first things we did was to replace the condemned gas fire with a log burning stove. We share the log fetching duties but not equally, Tim gets the lions share of the work!
Mo’s Digital Pencil – Carrying the Wood
Docrafts – Christmas Greeting (not sure if it is still available)
X-Press It card
green glitter card
A5 card blank
Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels – Diamond Sprinkles
black archival ink pad
The image is printed on X-Press It card and coloured with Copics. The snow is made using Collall Tacky Glue quite thickly then sprinkled with Dimond Sprinkles. The glue kept it’s dimension adding to the snow effect.
The image is trimmed to size, matted onto green sparkly card and attached to the card front. The greeting is stamped on in black.
The challenge at Love to Craft runs for the month so you have plenty of time to join in the fun. Remember we are an all-crafts challenge blog and welcome any and all kinds of handmade creations – from cards, tags, ATCs and scrapbook layouts – to 3-D projects, mixed media canvases and altered projects – and even knitting, crocheting, quilting and jewelry-making! Whatever you’re working on, we want to see it!
