Stampin' Up! Botanical Builders Framelits have been my got to dies this week with my Totally Techniques post a couple of days ago with the Bokeh technique and now today for our fortnightly Christmas Card Club challenge set this time by Carol who has two super cards to share with you so please do visit her and the other other lovely ladies by clicking on the link at the top of my blog.
I've gone for white and silver and whilst I've made this a Christmas card by adding a simple 'Happy Christmas' you could turn it just as easily into a silver wedding card or card for a special birthday just by changing your sentiment.
As a base for your card you can use the stitched shape framelits to add the white circle and some organza ribbon and the silver thread ribbon is from the now sadly retired SAB freebie gifts. I've used the dies to cut various flowers and leaves and a bone folder to add little touches of dimension to create veins on the two centre leaves. You can also just see some of my lifetime supply of silver thread to just life the sentiment which I stamped with individual words from Designer Tin of Tags stamp set in Memento black ink.
It's a peaceful day here although I'm enjoying thinking of my wonderful hubby who is on a spa, yes a spa, day with his colleagues. I'm intrigued to hear how his day has gone when he gets home. Olivia is out watching Beauty and the Beast with the Brownies and Charlie is, he tells me, doing his homework, but I'm sceptical as I don't think the teachers usually set computer games for home study!!! Me I'm typing for you and then making delicious gift wrap for my teamie presents as I'm off to Amsterdam for a big Stampin' Up! event later in the week.
Enjoy your Sunday and don't forget to visit the other ladies blogs for oodles of lovely inspiration.
