Well the nights have been dark early so I have taken the opportunity to start prepapring cards for the forthcoming year.
Christmas cards are made and behind us and although the day itself is two sleeps away, what better time than now to take some time for family, friends and of course ourselves.
So as an early start to my New Years resolution to take part in more Blog challenges, I have my second blog challenge entry below for Cupcake Crafting based on their sketch.
This was created on a navy blue A5 card blank from Craft Creations and I rounded the two right hand edges with a Cropodile Corner Chomper. The base backing paper comes from Faye Whittakers CD Rom available from Joanna Sheen and was distressed around the edges with Stormy Sky Distress Ink, I then punched the base of the panel with a ribbon punch and threaded the naughtical silk ribbon through. The knot was tied and added seperately. This panel was then applied to the right hand side of the card.
I then affixed the sentiment on to a small amount of card and added to the top right slightly over hanging the panel using glue gel. I then made the main image matt, this took the Faye Whittaker Decoupage Image and mounted it on a base matt of Navy and then a subsequent matt of glitter red. I added this to the card front using glue gel and once dried applied the further decoupage layers.
As a final finishing touch I then found the flip flops in my crafty stash and appied these to the bottom of the card for effect.
I hope you like this card, and thank you for taking the time to look at this creation.
