I am really into yellow at the moment so here is another card using mainly yellow! I took inspiration from the challenge over at Jay Gees Nook blog, used the sketch from CRAFT, used 3 different dies for Crafty Creations and added a handmade charm for Crafts & Me
a close up of my handmade charm - I cut a large circle out of shrink it using my circle dies, stamped the second title on it and then punched a hole and then shrunk it using a heat tool.
It really is a non traditional xmas card in both colours and theme and me being me I love non traditional things! I was complaining the other day to Neil about how the christmas stamp ranges are coming out and it is the same ole thing each year - what I really wanted was a set of stamps with the theme of 'not being together at xmas time' - my family live in NZ and every 2nd xmas we are not together so when I saw these wish you were here stamps by Hero Arts I thought they would be great for this and then I would have to somehow make up the rest of the title using alphabet stamps! I suppose when you think about it I am not the only one that has family that can't be with each other at xmas time - so why is it so difficult to find a set of stamps with that theme?
materials - Bazzill white card, yellow cardstock, AC coffee card; Echo Park 'country road' papers; Hero Arts 'wish you were here' stamps, Stampendous typewriter alphabet stamps; Stazon timber brown ink; Shrink it; 7mm split rings; MFT little open scalloped edge die; Provocraft circle dies and dot embossing folder; Creative Memories circle cutters; Sizzix scalloped frame; 16mm yellow and white ribbon.
