I Can Sing A Rainbow!!!!!!!!!

It's World Card Making day in Australia over at Little Scrapbook Shop

We were given 3 challenges if we wanted to take up the challenge.

The first challenge was to create a set of 3 Birthday Cards

The second challenge was to follow a sketch challenge - one of my fave challenges to do!!!!! I decided to go “round” and create a circle card. I was pleased how it turned out for a change.

And the third challenge was to create a Christmas card or 2 or 3 or more – it was up to ourselves. So I thought I’d create a “rainbow” set of cards.

Lately I have been making a lot of square cards from A4 cardstock. When I cut the square card that leaves me with all of these little offcuts which I just cant throw out. Then I came up with the idea to use some of them on these cards.

I kept these cards fairly simple - I used my Spellbinders Label Die set to create the shape and then stamped a Christmas Tree stamp by Kelly Panacci using brown ink. I added embellishments to each card - ribbons, buttons, bling, metal embellishments and other bits and pieces. I was happy how the rainbow turned out. I have to say these came together really quickly. You should give it a go.

OMG!! These are stunning!
I love the white space.
Just gorgeous!!
I may cheat and use your idea for my cards. They look like they would be quick and easy and I haven't even thought about Christmas cards yet!! Aaargh!!
I struggle with cards.

Thanks for the inspiration!!

Sandie said...

Thank you Hanni and Bec.

They certainly did come together quickly once I had the concept worked out.

All you need to do is get all your scraps out, whisk them through the cuttlebug or other machine and then its just a matter of putting them together.

Hope you have fun with it.
