Material card

I bought this Christmas material years ago and have never used any of it until today:


I've used the sketch for Always playing with paper merry Monday 26:


The material is for Festive Friday 24 product challenge: fabric, also for Tando creative June challenge: fabric.

It's a simple card with the material stuck around a square which was then mounted on to the gold background. The scalloped circle with the little house etc was rescued from a card received a few years ago and the sentiments from stash - I put a small strip of 3D foam on the left hand edge to even up the height.

Why is it that sometimes photos make cards look crooked? And the colour of the sentiment panel IRL is more like the green on the material - ah well!


This is also for:

Make my Monday 55: red, white/cream and green
ABC Christmas: L for lyrics - 'The holly bears a berry ...'

  1. What a clever way to use the material. I am going to have to try that. The reason your card does not come out square when you photograph it is you don't have your camera on the same plane as the object you are photographing. It takes a lot of effort to do it unless you use a tripod.
