Christmas coming up, and both my daughers have been home sick for a week. I guess they are happy returning to school and kindergarden today, I sure will be happy for that ;) For a couple of weeks ago I was the one down with the flu, so now we are all clear for Christmas huh?
Well, over to this weeks challenge over at Through The Purple Haze!
As my heading says; Christmas is coming! And this week its a new Double Team Challenge, and our fabolous sponsors are
who gives one winner 3 digi's,
who gives a second winner a Goody Bag!
My projects are some chocolate cards. Inside the reciever will find a 200 gram milkchocolate, no wonder these type of cards are popular :)
I was quick choosing On Vixen from Kenny K as my digi of choice, she is so gorgeous! I used Promarkers to color her in. The card measures 11" X 3" folded. Papers from Maja Design, and the embellies are 3 snowflakes with a bling.
A little pocket with a tag (and place for a Giftcard?) and a sentiment. But most important... the chocolate :)
I made 3 cards, and colored all images at the same time. A red one, a blue and a brown. And these are my first coloring attempt on a new paper; 4CC 280g. It's SUUUUPER!!!
I have used different papers for the cards, and embellished them differently.
The red version:
Stickles "Diamond" here and there, and some glossy on the bells on her thigh. The doily is Cheery Lynn, cut from coffeefilter. Flower from Petaloo, leaves and pearlstring unknown (WOC?). Sentiment "God Jul" ("Merry Christmas" in Norwegian) from Storyteller, stamped with Aged Mahogany (Distress Ink)- and clearembossed.
The brown version:
Same doily as above, but in regular printerpaper. Pearls from Kort & Godt, ribbon from Europris. Same sentiment stamped with Walnut Stain (Distress Ink), and then clearembossed. Rolled the ends around some wooden pins. Martha Stewart edge punch. DP I think is BoBunny and Maja Design.
And the blue:
Just some Diamond Stickles as small snowflakes, referring to the sentiment on the patterned paper. Snowflake punch from Martha Stewart, bling unknown.
