My house has been full of boys singing carols at the top of their voices lately! They will be both be performing with all their school friends at a local church later this afternoon…….
I hope you’ve been following all the fabulous projects that the DT have posted using the December ‘Through The Letterbox’. There’s sooooooo much you can do with the contents and it you haven’t already ordered yours I’d get in quick!
My project uses a sentiment stamp I recently bought. I enjoy making cards for friends to show how much they mean to me and as this particular stamp went so well with the star themed box, I had to put it to use!
I began by making the background using the star stencil with Liquid Pearls, adding it with my fingers to give more texture, and left it to dry. In the meantime, I die cut banners and stamped the sentiment onto the large one and stuck glitter stars onto the others. I trimmed some of the diamante ribbon into banners as well.
I arranged all the components onto my card using foam tape for the banner with the sentiment to make it stand out that bit more.
I kept the card as monochrome as I could. This was tough for me as I love injecting colour into my projects but on this occasion I refrained and as a consequence I think I’ve created rather an elegant card.
There’s lots more inspiration to follow over the course of the month.
See you again soon!
