Hello Everyone! Hope your weekend is turning out to be just what you wanted!
The project I have to share today is for the Sweet Dreamers' Challenge this week which is to make a Christmas card with animals on it! I chose one of my favorite images-the Lion and the Lamb. It is such a beautiful image and says so much! I started with a blue/green card stock base. Then I embossed it with my Snow Dots folder. I wanted a distressed look to the base but my card stock was not white core and the sanding didn't show up very well. So, I versamarked the entire surface and heat embossed with white powder. Now the sanding really made the dry embossing stand out and I got a muted color that I really like. I distressed the edges of the base with a hobby blade. The image is mounted onto cardboard. I deckled the edges and then distressed them with a hobby blade, too. I also sponged the edges with Weathered Wood distress ink. I added silver brads to the corners and then adhered the image with dimensionals. I added the Peace brad as the sentiment. After rounding the corners of the card, I decided I was happy with the look.
This card got me in the mood to make more Christmas cards so hopefully I will be ahead of the season this year...nah, who am I kidding?!?! Sometimes the pressure of the moment makes the creative juices flow more freely so I'll wait for that! Sounds good anyway, don't ya think?
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the other Sweet Dreamers' projects this week. They are listed on the sidebar. Lots of talent and inspiration from these ladies!
Blessings to you,
