I'm delighted to be joining the Creative Belli Blog with a couple of Guest Designer projects this month. The first is for the current challenge... Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
As I need to boost my stack of Christmas cards I stuck with a festive theme.
Old: the DCWV white core card has been in my stash for five years or so and the square crystal brad is probably not much newer!
New: the stamp set is a recent release and one of my latest acquisitions
Borrowed: the layout is from a sketch on Kathy's Sketch File and I borrowed a tool from the world of sewing (a tracing wheel to do the piercing round the image panel)
Blue: cardstock for the snowflake panel and crystal brad
I used several of the smaller stamps from the set to create the background directly onto the card base. The glittery strip was done with a piece of double sided sticky sheet with glitter pressed on top and then I think the rest is self explanatory!
