Well this is the last card I need to make for my guest designer post at Bah Humbug Challenge Blog.
I have really enjoyed my time as a guest designer and do not want it to end.
This card that I have got for you this week is a card using pleats and ruffles, and my word I had a real hard time with this one. The end card is one of 10 half finished cards that just did not fit the bill and got abandoned half way through.
The card I have made is a DL size card, with holly backing paper folded into pleats, fixed half way across the DL card and finished of with a gold border peel off over the top of the pleated edge.
The image is a beautiful Sarah Kay rubber stamp called "winter wonderland" I stamped the image using momento ink pad, and coloured in using promarkers. To give the definition of vintage I edged around the stamp with Tim Holtz Distressed ink. The topper was put onto red backing paper and then mounted half onto the pleated paper and cream card base.
To highlight the snow on the topper I used a Sakura jelly roll white pen.
The flower I have created using 18" off ribbon and to create the ruffle of the flower, I have done a runner stitch down one edge of the ribbon, the cotton is then pulled to create a ruffle, I then manipulated the ribbon into a circle and sealed it with a pearl brad.
The card is then finished off with a Christmas sentiment and three red gems.
