Hi Crafty Friends,
It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Tracey Farr our challenge hostess for the month finishes off her month with one last challenge.
Wreaths - Tracey just loves the look of wreaths, she says there's just something about them that appeals to her eye. So our challenge this week is to put a wreath on your card, any style or theme you like.
I created a christmas themed Centre Step Card using Divinity Designs Center Step Card with Layers die set. For my card today I omitted the layers and stencilled bricks direct to the base of the white card to create the look of the house.
I added some glittery snow to the base of the card using the snow/dirt border from Elizabeth Craft Designs Adventure Edges 2 die set. I die cut this from white cardstock that had Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the front and covered the adhesive with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter.
I then used Elizabeth Craft Designs Christmas Door die set to decorate the front of the card. I love this die set, it has everything you need to create a front view of a house scene. Of course the wreath which I needed to add for the challenge, is adhered to the door.
For the inside of my card, I added another snowy hill along the bottom of the card. I also added a large Christmas tree to the left side of the card using dies included in the Sleigh die set.
To finish off the card I added two sentiments "From Our House To Yours" and "Merry Christmas To You & Yours". Both sentiments are from a long retired Waltzing Mouse Stamps stamp set, as I wanted to include the "From Our House To Yours" on my card. I believe ECD has a similar sentiment included in their "Joyful Wishes" stamp set but as I don't have that set I used what was on hand. I have linked to the ECD version below in case you are interested.
