Another Sunday and it’s Jaydee’s turn to bring us an Inspiration Challenge and what a beauty it is:
This just sings old-fashioned Christmas to me! Since my time is limited this week (until I get into a new “groove” with my granddaughter) I chose to make a really simple card, using a retired set called To You & Yours:
I am hoping you can see the full effect of this---the Real Red card was cut using the large Square Scallop die, placing the top fold just below the edge of the die. Then I cut a narrower piece of snowflake window sheet, also just running one edge through the die….just enough to cut it, then back it out, so I could get that matching scalloped edge. I attached it on the back by scoring the window sheet at about 1/2”, then adhering that 1/2” section to the back with Sticky Strip. The image was inked in Real Red, then I went over the trees and snow with a Basic Black marker. I added some “glitter snow” too:
Isn’t it pretty behind the “window”? A satin ribbon tames the window sheet into behaving and staying close to the card, because it wants to be wild and run away! LOL! Here’s another view:
And the inside uses a sentiment from that set, plus an element from Style Beautiful….I am finding ways to sneak that set into many things!!
And guess what? This also qualifies for the JUGS 54 challenge this week—to use acetate on your card! Thanks for visiting today---be sure to visit the Paper Players blog to see what the other players did with this inspiration….and we want to see what you can do too!
Just a little peek at a more “serious” side of sweet little Cassidy…..very intent on her little Binky:
But just check out that little applique on her jacket—and the ears! TOO cute!
