Dear Santa Christmas Card

Hi there and happy August to you! Do you know that there’s only 20 more weeks to go before Christmas?  This has got me started, gradually creating my Christmas cards.  This year I plan on making each card extra special, and today I get to share with you my 2017 Christmas Card #1:

Franchville materials: Metallic Card and Envelope Set

Bella Materials: Raspberry Glittered Cardstock, Black Flourish Bling, Black Bella Florals, True Love 3D Sticker Sheet, Round Buckle

Fundamentals Materials: White Lettering on Black Sticker Sheet

Other: Tattered Angels Paints and Mists

The White Metallic Franchville Card is the perfect base for this frosty feel Christmas card.  I’m also pleasantly surprised on how well it held amongst all the wet mediums I’ve layered on top.

For added glitz and color all in one, I’ve layered some of Bella’s gorgeous Raspberry Glittered Cardstock.  It’s such a lovely shade of pinkish red that’s not overly bright.

To perfect the color combination, I added a cluster of pretty Black Bella Florals on the middle of the card.  I then surrounded it with some more glitzy touches of Black Flourish Bling.

I also added some pieces from the True Love 3D Sticker Sheet amongst the florals, together with a Round Bella Buckle.

The numbers and alphas for the title is from Fundamentals’ Alphabet Sticker Sheet.  These are perfect little additions to any project and come in different sizes per pack.

It’s all finished off with lashings of Tattered Angels’ paints and mists around the red, black and white frosty Christmas card.

Thanks so much for popping in and I hope I’ve inspired you today.  Check out all the range of Bella, Fundamentals, and Franchville goodies HERE.

Cheers,

Hooray Mixed Media Card

Happy July to you! Today I’m excited to share with you my colorful mixed media celebration card with Franchville’s Bright Yellow Card and Bella’s Glittered Cardstock. 

“Hooray, Big Day”

Franchville materials: Brights Card & Envelope Set

Bella materials: Glittered Cardstock (Watermelon; Black), White Florals, True Love 3D Sticker, Round Ribbon Buckle, Black Foiled Heart Seal, Raw & Rustic Stamp

I’ve die cut some pineapples with the Watermelon and Black Glittered Cardstock and layered them on top of each other.

Bright yellows remind me of fun pineapples, which is why I made the glittery layered pineapple the centrepiece of my card.  I then surrounded it with Bella Florals and topped with a dimensional blinged sentiment from the True Love 3D Sticker Sheet.

I’ve layered my painted background and added some texture with the versatile Raw & Rustic Stamp Set.  I’ve also painted the Bella Round Ribbon Buckle to match the Bright Yellow Franchville Card, tying the whole look together.  I finished it off with some sprinkling of fine glitter on top.

So there’s my glittery pineapple mixed media card, Bella style.  You can never have too many celebration cards in your stash just in case.  Thanks for popping and do check out the great range of Bella goodies HERE.

Cheers,
