Untraditional christmas colours @ creative cottage


Hello and happy Wednesday to you !

Wednesday means that it is time for another challenge at the Creative cottage challenge blog.

This week Carol has challenged us all to make a christmas card using UNtraditional christmas colours.

I have used pink and black as my colours and added plenty of sparkle - which is the law at christmas or should be !
That gorgeous paper is from the swirly cupcake mini set which is super value at just 80p !
For that you get the paper and a beautiful cupcake topper along with some great sentiments too and as with all of Tracy's kits the quality is first class - you can check it out here.

For my base card I used a piece of 8 x 8 scalloped cardstock folded in half to make a tall skinny card.
My image is from whimsie doodles - a set called Christmas greetings. I have covered the entire image with versamark and embossed it with a clear sparkle to give it a sparkly shiny finish - I've also done this with my scalloped diecut circle and snowflakes (before diecutting).
All that was left to do was add MORE sparkle with my stickles and add a ribbon bow - voila - simple !

I do hope you like it - I had fun making it as I haven't had my heat gun out for ages x

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

2 Sisters Challenge Blog

Stamps R Us - Sparkles and scallops
