Second card for CCAYR mid-month


This is my second design card for Christmas cards all year round May challenge: vintage. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of others in the team and you can join in our challenge here.

As my theme for this week's CHNC challenge 228 is 'vintage/shabby chic' I'm also showing this there - the challenge is only open until 22:00 UK time tonight, so there's still time to join in.

I'll be back later with the name of the lovely paper that I used for the background (double sided). The black strips are Paper Cellar gllittered strips, although they don't look glittered here. The berries on the lovely vintage scene are also glittered.

The background of the card was made using two Embossalicious folders run through the eBosser and then brushed with stormy sky distress ink. The lovely vintage scene was rescued from an old card.

Mid-month inspiration for CHNC challenge extra for May


It seems impossible that I'm showing my design card for mid-month inspiration for CHNC challenge extra for May ... where does time go it?! Please click on the link to see the wonderful designs by my team and join in the challenge here.

My card was simply made using the lovely glittered picture that was cut off an M & S gift card, matting this on to backgrounds that I'd previously made for another card that I didn't like when it was finished, so I demolished it apart from the background layers - the top one had been embossed with a folder.

The strips and sentiment were from Craftwork cards - the sentiment says 'from our house to yours'.
