Winter Fir Christmas
Today since it is raining I decided to make a Christmas card which ended up with quite a bit of layers on it. I used pattern papers along with dies and stamps to create it. I am entering this into the Die-Namites Sketch & Dare Challenge for August which is an Anything Goes theme. Counting all the layers I think with what I added inside there are nine.
I used Sketch #3. You see there were four options for sketches but this was one I decided fit my purpose the most.
The Die-Namites die I chose is called Winter Fir. I added that to some oval die cuts from Cheery Lynn Designs and then added some pearls which I colored red with my red alcohol marker.
The pattern paper is from Gina K. Designs and is from the Merry Little Christmas paper pack. The sentiment is also from Gina K. Designs and is from the Stately Flowers 5 set which is illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger. I also used Gina K. Designs Cherry Red card stock for the red layers and the card base. The winter fir die was cut out of Gina K. Designs Christmas Pine card stock.
Well, I managed to sneak in a bit of crafting for the day and even had to shut the computer down for awhile but decided to risk it now since I had not heard thunder for several hours. I hope you are having a great day. And, I certainly am as there is no better way to spend a rainy day then in the craft room or in my case the kitchen. LOL
Take care and God bless,
