This was a hard one for me today! My mother in law loves big cards & requested a bunch of them for Christmas. I find them really hard to layout as everything feels out of proportion. And I have been trying to do the same blog challenges every week, so on Monday's it's Pootles Colour Challenge, which has the colour combo including Choc Chip, which is one of my least favourite colours lol what a hard combo!
But I thought I would stick to my schedule & just try & do my best. Sometimes it's really good to challenge yourself & do something completely uncomfortable. And I'm actually really happy with the end result! I'd love to hear what you guys think about it xx
So the idea came to me that I should make the front look like a present with a tag hanging off. I think I might add some pine leaves or something next time, but overall I'm quite happy with how this looks. I have used a Cherry Cobbler base (A4 folded in half) layered with Choc Chip DSP Stack dot print & then I have used washi tape to secure the Emerald Envy Satin Ribbon behind.
I have tied the bow separately & stapled it together with the Whisper White circle, which I have stamped with Mint Macaron & Cherry Cobbler using the Stitched with Cheer stamp set that goes with the Project Kit on page 34 of the Holiday Catalog. Let me know if you would like a copy of this & I'll shoot you one in the post. I've added a couple of Basic Rhinestones for good measure.
Then on the inside, I have used the dot print from the Decorative Masks in the Holiday catalog, sponged lightly with Mint Macaron. All the other images & sentiment come from the Stitched with Cheer stamp set & are in Mint Macaron, Choc Chip, Emerald Envy & Cherry Cobbler. I have filled up a lot of the space as I know although my mother in law likes big cards, she doesn't write big messages haha! :P xx
