Winter Wonderland Hop

Nice to see Ya!  Thanks for joining in with the Queen Kat Designs Monday Blog Hop this week.  I hope you arrived here via Penny's Blog but if you just stopped by here first, you really should go back to the beginning of the Hop on the QKD Blog so you don't miss any of today's creations from the DT.

Well I have to confess that the challenge set by Queen Kat for this week pushed me so far outside my 'comfort zone' that I almost couldn't find my way back!! 

For this week's projects the DT were tasked with creating a banner.  Not something I have ever made before and I honestly didn't know where to start!  So, I sat and scratched my head for quite a while before inspiration finally arrived.

The picture on the left above probably doesn't look at all like a banner to you, and you'd be right.  The banner is cunningly concealed inside the card.

As the card opens, the banner is revealed.  The lovely images from the January WIS Kit are suspended on a thread across the inside of the card, which lifts as the card opens - as you can see in the picture on the right. 

Once the card is fully open, the banner is displayed across the centre, as you can see in the final picture below.



I decided to use the delightful January WIS Kit stamps for this project as it is perfect for creating a Christmas themed card.  Although I haven't used specifically Christmas papers, the colours work well on the design.  I coloured the images with ProMarkers and Copics, used a set of spellbinders nestabilities dies to cut out the layers used on the front of the card and the images and sentiments on the inside.  The flowers were from my stash and the fabulous metallic half beads were from the QKD Store.

The 40% discount off most stamps is still running over at the Store, but only until 31 March, so you've just got a couple of days left to take advantage of the great savings, so don't miss out.

I'm now sending you hopping along your way to Steph's blog to see the fabulous creation she has to share with you today.  Thanks for hopping with us, it is such an honour and pleasure to share my work with you and I do hope you'll join in and hop again next monday with us.  Don't forget there is also a Tuesday Hop each week when the remainder of the DT share thier creations with you.  As always, the hops start at the QKD Blog - just start at the blog tomorrow and follow the links.
