Christmas Countdown

fredag 3. februar 2012


I have tried to make a girliy, shabby chic/ vintage-styled birthdaycard - I'm not quite sure I've succeeded with the plan I had when I started, but this is how it turned out.
I even made a matching envelope for it :D
I used a digital image, bought from Funky Kits some time ago. I think Grace standing is absolutely adorable. I'm quite satisfied with the colouring on this one (ProMarkers, of course), so I figure she can't be difficult colouring ;)
I used two DPs from MajaDesign. The paper with the butterflypattern was a piece I've had laying around for ages, never finding the right use for it - until now, when I used it as backing of the image, and cut some butterflies out of it. I glittered these butterflies before I attached them to the card.
I've also used some dies to cut different swirls and the insidepanels.
All edges are distressed, and I used the sewingmachine on the edges of the panels on the frontside of the card.
Here's the inside. I used two different Martha Stewart Butterflypunches.
The textstamp is from Kreativ Hobby and the swirlstamps are from Autumn Leaves.
The back of the card; can it be made simpler...

Now; the challenges I put my card into:
CLP Challenge Blog - Sketch
Charisma Cardz Challenges - Vintage
Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog - It's All About the Girls!
One Stitch At A Time - Anything Goes
