What an awesome year of challenges it's been.
Huge thanks to one of our biggest supporters,
the ever incredible Lawn Fawn
, who is generously
offering up a free stamp set of the winners choice.
Thanks from the bottom of our hearts, Lawn Fawn!
Here's my card:
No stamping involved on this card at all,
which means I was able to make it in record time,
since time is something I've been awfully short on lately.
For my Lawn Fawn element, I chose this
awesome patterned paper from their Fa La La
Petite Paper Pack -- the last sheet of it I had!
I'm going to have to order another 6x6 for sure.
I thought these Studio Calico wood veneer trees
went so well with these sketchy chevron Lawn Fawn
trees, so I decided to pair them up --
except they definitely needed to get glittered up.
I used a fine glitter on two trees,
a Martha Stewart chunky glitter on the largest tree,
and nail polish -- you read that right --
NAIL POLISH on the silvery tree.
I didn't have any silver glitter,
and what to crafty girls do when we don't have
something we have a vision for?
I colored the wood veneer with a C5 copic marker
just to give the glitter a bit of a colored base,
then applied four thin coats of nail polish over top.
I adhered them all down with glossy accents,
and added a sentiment from another 6x6 pad
from Crate Paper -- the Peppermint Collection?
Something like that.
I just liked it, and it was the perfect shade of red.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed my card.
Just wait till you see the rest of the design team's projects!
to take a peek and find out how to play along.
I wish you and yours all a very Merry Christmas
and a blessed start to the brand new year!
