Today is the day! A fantastic challenge starting at Really Reasonable Ribbon .....create something with shimmer & sparkle and ribbon of course! This is the only challenge for this month at RRR...so please join us. I have broke out the glitter again....always perfect for the holidays. I created two cards for this challenge...both very different in styles but both with the same glitter. I always love the softness that glitter adds to a project.
My first card is cute, bright, and very kitschy. A fun image from my stash.....using a non-traditional christmas palette. I added sweetheart blossoms in red and two tone blue and layered them with flowers from Riddersholm Designs. I used Glory blue seam binding along with a bit of frayed fabric for contrast.
My second card is one of my favorites in a long time. Using an old Spellbinders die I shaped my card into a label design. I let my image and papers from Raspberry Road Designs take the lead. I layered my image onto a stiff vintage crochet snowflake and than added in lots of vintage touches....snowflakes and vintage rhinestone buttons along with a WP cabochon. I also used a sweet tree from Riddersholm Designs. To add softness I used Bayleaf seam binding and than added my glitter to the whole card. Well folks that is it for me.....enjoy! Hugs, Cherry
