Fourth from the end of the book now! Here is today's, called kindness is a blessing, and designed by Sue Wilson. Here is her version
I warn you now, her version is much better than mine! For a start, I have finally come to the conclusion that I cannot tie a bow for the sake of my life. So from now on it's paper bows! What I wanted to take from this one is the use of one colour in both embossing and die cuts. I think that, if you are limited to only white card, you can still do a very effective card if you have some embossing folders and dies. Enough blathering though, here is my version
I also set the challenge with this one of using stuff in my stash that I had never used before. So I used a snowflake embossing folder, which is very effective for a simple background, and the cut and stamp chandelier in the middle, which I coloured using mica powder. I also used the mica powder to colour a clear button in the middle of some ribbon. I know there should be a bow there but I didn't want one (that's my excuse anyway)
What I like about this card is that without a sentiment it can be for any occasion, except perhaps sympathy. I also like the pegs, only because it's the first time I've used them as an embellishment.
I'm having a little trouble posting at the moment. Well, not so much the posting but the actual creativeness. Whenever I have time off I just can't muster up the energy to do things. Hence the project book posts. I promise I will get back to normal soon, I'm just in a slump.
Happy crafting everyone
