Hello and welcome

Today it’s time for the next challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday!  This week Karen is our host for our “All About Occasions” Challenge.

I started by stamping an old favourite – Papertrey Ink Year of Flowers Poinsettias, colouring and fussy cutting the flower.

After die cutting  a scalloped circle in green, it was stamped using Versa Mark ink and an old wood block holly stamp.

To make a circle card, a second white scalloped circle was cut for the card back. This was attached to the green circle with tape along a folded section at the top of the back.

A piece of tartan ribbon was attached to the side of a white circle, before attaching it to the green circle. Verve Stamps – Glad Tidings sentiment was stamped on the front and the flower was attached with raised tape.

A sentiment from a Kaisercraft Christmas set was silver heat embossed, fussy cut and tied to the tartan ribbon.

To finish, some Nuvo drops were added to the flower centre.

Although it is not a traditionally shaped card, the colours and elements are definitely a more traditional style.

Don’t forget to head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of our Design Team.

I look forward to seeing what you create this week!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Have a great day

Cheers

Helen

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
