It is time for the new challenge at Frilly and Funkie and Pamellia is our hostess this time. She is calling it Holiday Hues and describes it this way:
" Make a shabby chic or vintage project using your favourite holiday colour palette for whatever holiday you choose."
Since I realized at the last minute that I had one more card to give out, I decided to stick with a Christmas card in red and gold, which are the colours I decorate my tree and house in every year. The papers I decided to use are a vintage red and not the usual bright Christmas red.
The background papers are all from A Christmas Carol by Graphic 45. The vintage image was a freebie from Linda Coughlin. all the papers were distressed with my distressing tool and some were popped up with foam dots to add some depth.
The snowflakes were cut using the Tim Holtz Paper Snowflakes die set from some card stock scraps. They were then painted with Champagne Gold Metallic paint from Deco Art. Pearls were added to a couple and a button from my stash was added to the third.
I dyed some seam binding with Ages Mahogany and Fired Brick Distress Ink and made a loopy bow that was tied with some burlap string that held some little bells. The bow was layered on top of some cream coloured woven jute ribbon.
The word "joy" is another laser cut from my husband and I used the same Distress Inks to colour it. I added a little row of pearls to finish the card off.
I hope as you get back into your craft room after all the festivities of the past while, that you will join us for this challenge.
