Anyone want me to send the rainclouds your way to water your gardens ? No? Thought not !
Today I certainly don't need to make Christmas cards to cool me down here in Cornwall. We have dark skies and intermittent heavy showers - so unfair as I understand that the rest of the UK is still enjoying warm sunshine ! Still, wet weather means not being able to get anything done in the garden, so more time to craft !
The card I'm sharing today is another Christmas card to add to my stock. I just found the Lili's Little Fairies challenge blog and as the prize is two Lili of the Valley stamps, I just HAD to create an entry for this week. The challenge this week is anything but a square card and here is my version.
I used Marianne's dies to cut the lantern shape and the tree, nesties to shape the card and cut out the sentiment layers. The sentiment is LOTV and I smudged some Bundled Sage DI around the edges as the white card that I stamped on looked too stark against the darker muted colours of the bp. The bp was a magazine freebie and I used a scrap of SU! cardstock for the scalloped oval layer behind the lantern. A few touches of Stickles and Glossy Accents, some tiny red gems from my stash and Pinflair glue to pop up the elements from the background and that's about it folks.
Thanks for dropping by and hope you've enjoyed today's creation.
