Hi and Good Morning everyone, and thanks so much for sharing your wonderful Wedding & Anniversary creations with us last week, we were so blown away by the standard that the DT couldnt narrow it down to just 3!! :)
So, this week, in order of entry we loved seeing:
Well done ladies, it was a pleasure visiting your blogs and being inspired by your fabulous creations! :) Please Contact Us for your Weekly Spotlight Badge to display on your blog.
Now for my card for this weeks challenge theme of 'Christmas in July' I wanted to go with something very wintry and frosty as thats half the fun when you make them in the summer! :) lol.
I used a 6 x 6 square card for my base, and hand-stitched Bearly Mine papers onto snow-white pearlescent card. All the die-cuts are in 300gsm pearl card and this heavier card-stock cuts like a dream for even the most delicate and intricate designs. The large snowflake is the gorgeous Italian Flourish Doily die, to which I added glossy accents and crisp ice glitter. The smaller snowflakes are cut using the 4 x 4 Snowflake Plate and this is brilliant - it cuts 20 snowflakes in one pass, all different shapes and sizes and these are excellent for layering on top of each other too.
The image is matted onto the 2nd smallest size Circle Silver Stacker and the co-ordinating Scalloped Circle Stackers I thought this made a nice change having it smaller and offset and not smack bang in the centre as I really wanted to show off how beautiful the doily looked as a snowflake.
The corner dies are just one from the set of Lace Corner Deco C (with added snowflake on top) and the icy leaves behind the image are the lovely Pine Branches
All dies used on this project are:
I hope you find time to join in this week, its never to early to make a start on your christmas cards or scrap-book pages. Dont forget there is always fresh daily inspiration over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration blog too.
