Hi & welcome to another Christmas Card Club post; today our Maureen (Scrappymoi) wanted to see Sleighs. (Maureen is also the hostess for Rudolph Day, which will be opening on the 25th, and it's not too early to start on your Christmas card stash for 2016).
So let's get on to the Sleigh fun:
- Inkadinkadoo wooden stamp was inked up with Memento Cottage Ivy and then colored with Copics, Pentel Slicci gold pen, and some WoS.. S/B Decorative Labels 22 (S4-387) was used to die cut the image, then while still in the die, sponged some DI Shabby Shutters around the edge.
- Cheery Lyn DL103 - Italian Flourish cut from a textured & patterned red Christmas paper, adhered over CL Celtic Fire doily (DL109) cut in white. The white doily alone didn't give enough contrast with the image, so added the red layer between.
- Lawn Fawn sentiment die cut from the same red Christmas paper (2 layers) and Impression Obsession (DIE035-E) green tree (2 layers) from a snippet.
I love these Cheery Lyn doilies. However the Celtic Fire was a PITA to cut, even using the Sizzix Precision Plate, with many passes through the Big Shot. It did finally cut, but required a lot of painstaking poking out of the bits. It IS a very pretty die though. Usually the Precision Plate works great, so I shudder to think of how this die would have been had I not used the Plate. Italian Flourish cut just great.
My fellow club members' blogs are listed on the right sidebar, so I do hope you'll have time to go see what they have shared for today's Club Challenge!
Thanks for joining me today, and have a blessed Sunday. Big hugs.
