SUNNY DAY CRAFTING CHALLENGE #25

Hello!!
Another week, another challenge at
The theme as always is
ANYTHING GOES
Loved the way this one turned out.
I cut out the bauble base card and two patterned paper layers on my Silhouette Cameo cutting machine. I cut the base card out twice and glued together to make a firmer base.
I added the two patterned layers.
I die a star and small snowflakes from glitter card and a 'Merry Christmas' sentiment from matt blue mirri card.
Made a triple bow using a bow maker.
I slotted the paper border through the chipboard frame and glued them in place in the centre of the card. sat the Robin on the bottom of the frame.
I glued the small snowflakes in various places, the star at the top right and the sentiment on the left.
The handmade flower I put at the edge of the frame centre and the bow in the middle.
I tied a piece of gold elastic trim through the bauble holder.
Lastly I cut out a card stand with Cameo and glued to back of card.

LET'S CRAFT & CREATE CHALLENGE #119 - WINTER

Hello lovely people!
We have a new challenge starting today over at
The theme for this challenge is....
WINTER
Remember to visit us again for our half-way post from Team 2 on 19th of the month. 
There is this lovely prize up for grabs too so come along and join in!
This is my inspiration card for this challenge...
For this card I made a 6x6 white base card, layered the front with silver glitter card and embossed three quarters of the top layer with a snowflake design embossing folder. I die snowflakes from some of the glitter card and placed three on the front of the card. I cut a piece of the glitter card to fit across the part that wasnt embossed on the front and layered it with white card cut slightly smaller. I stamped a sentiment onto the front of it.
(When matting and layering I usually cut my mats one-eighth of an inch smaller each time.)
And thats my DT card for this time.
I hope you like it and it will give you some inspiration.
Please do visit our other DT members to see their fabulous creations too.
