So, I don't really know what to think of this card. I'm really afraid of making cards "too much" and honestly I like my cards to be really simple. But the cards in the challenges are always really worked through, and the more I work with my cards, the "more" they get... Anyway, I'm a bit happy with it even though glitter and such isn't really my cup of tea. This is an entry for the Susie & Vikki's Christmas Club challenge for this week. The theme was blue and silver. A really nice combo and the Design Team cards are beautiful. I wanted to make a weave with paper so I wove different paper strips together and put the paper mat on the backside of the front of which I had cut a hole. I've stamped the front with light blue, dark blue, silver ink and finished it of with embossing the same pattern. I also coloured and embossed the edges. Not sure how good its shown on the photo. I cut snowflakes (by hand!) from silver paper. Not the easiest thing I've done... Put a silver ribbon at the bottom of the front and then went nuts with flowers, stars and rhinestones on the weave... And then went even more nuts with my newly bought glitter glue. (Yes, I know my budget had been overdrawn long time ago this month but... I couldn't help myself...) What materials have I used then...? Honestly, this is a real budget card. I got a Christmas Scrapbooking Kit from my mother-in-law last Christmas, no idea from where... I used some papers and decorations from that package. And some stuff from the Clas Ohlson Winter kit... I have used some papers from DCVW Linen Closet... It was really fun to do at least. Stayed up until after 3 am last night. Finished it off this morning. Just need the glue to dry before I put it in my "Finished cards box". Planning to sell some of the cards in a market festival late this summer. In Dalarna of course!
