.....after all the water we have endured this year, it is absolutely fantastic to have such beautiful weather. It has been shorts and gardening all week and I am just about on top of the weeding. I have a small patch outside the back door to sort (which is my target for tomorrow) then the plant catalogue comes out. I've planted loads of spring bulbs so I would like to fill the borders with shrubs, then I can just add a splash of colour with bedding plants. I'm quite pleased with the way it's looking now because I haven't got a clue what I'm doing. LOL
So, we'd like you to make and show a Christmas card which incorporates the following:
Some Paper Tearing
The colour Purple
It has to have at least one hole somewhere in the design!
......BUT by "hole" we don't just mean the sort of hole you poke a brad through, or the holes you make for/with stitching - or even the hole you make to put an eyelet in - although you can use all those techniques too if you want.
We want you to be a bit/lot more inventive and creative than that, and we think you'll be able to come up with some wonderful ideas for making cards to fit this recipe.
I stamped the snowflake onto acetate using a white Brilliance ink pad and added some iridescent glitter. It is fastened into the 'hole' with silver wire threaded with a silver lined seed bead. The 'Merry Christmas' paper is from last years Papermania Christmas pack torn at the bottom, stuck onto purple card, then onto the white base card. I then finished it off with some purple fibres and a snowman button.
I nearly forgot to tell you that I was very naughty this morning, well I wasn't so much naughty as led astray by Dollydimple and this is what I ordered.........The Bind It All I have received an email from Craft Obsessions to say that it has been despatched! Yay!
