Mornings Beautiful People!
It is time for a new challenge at
And this week’s theme is....
Cut it out & pop it up!
Remember the challenge theme is optional, the only real rule is you must create a new Christmas Holiday, winter or Hanukkah card / creation.
I was not much in the mood for sitting and coloring in this week so I thought I would try taking this challenge to a different level for myself and try something I have always wanted to do and never done and that is, popping my card up off it's base! (I know! How simple and I have seen it done heaps of times and it looks wicked but have never done it myself!)
Well .... Until now!
Every-thing is 'popping' off this card, including the card popping off the base! I have been inking up my Snowy Background that I have embossed with black embossing powder and then blinged up the snowflakes with an assortment of pearls and jewels. I then cut it out in a triangle shape, distressed the edges with some TH inks, & added a distressed rectangle piece for the tree stump (makes a pretty nice tree if I say so myself :) And the tree is then again, popped up on some foam dots.
For the sentiment I did some masking and used black embossing powder too, TH inked the edges and cut up and did some tricky placing of a Marianne Designs Creatables Frames LRO116.
