December 2017 Card Group Projects

Today I'm finally sharing the two cards made at the December card group meeting - we had such a lovely afternoon!  December is hurtling by - I can't believe it's Christmas in just a few days!

The first card would be very suitable as a masculine birthday card.  I've used a colour combo of Island Indigo, Crushed Curry and Early Espresso.  After stamping and die cutting the feathers I shaped them a wee bit for some dimension and I adhered them to the Crushed Curry patterned paper tag.  I added texture to the strip of Early Espresso CS by using a feathers embossing folder.  I stamped the sentiment, added jute twine to the tag hole and popped the tag up.


Here's the inside and the envelope.


For the second card I used the SU! 'Paint Play' set.  I haven't got anything else like this set and I thought it would be good fun to play with - I love the paint like look of the images and sentiments! For this card I've gone for a colour combo of Berry Burst, Fresh Fig and a splash of zesty Lemon Lime Twist.  I stamped the base of the flowers in Powder Pink ink and stamped the swirl over the top in Berry Burst ink.  I cut out each flower using a circle punch.  I stamped the leaves and used a blender pen and Lemon Lime Twist ink to colour them in.  I popped up the white panel and also one of the flowers.  To complete the card front I added three sequins to the flagged banner.


Here's the inside and the envelope.


I'm taking a break from card group in January, we're getting together again on the first Thursday in February.  I am hoping to get a few days off from work in January and if so I plan on getting productive in my craft room - fingers crossed!  I've not had much crafting time at all recently and I miss it!

Wishing everyone a fun filled, festive Christmas!
