Salutations, crafty traveller. Thank you for stopping by the Guild Hall. In a mere fortnight, we shall be celebrating the great Winter Festival. With another fresh blanket of snow, the smallfolk of the village are getting more excited for the big day. All the holly the Lady Commander of Copics and I collected from Holly’s Gulch has now been transformed into Christmas decorations and hung around the village.
This card was designed for the Creative Card Crew “Poinsettia or Holly” challenge that is happening now. This fortnight we are sponsored by Delicious Doodles. Play along to win some delicious digis!
I started this card by printing the Delicious Doodles “On a Winter’s Day” image three times. I then stamped out three polaroid images using the Lawn Fawn “Say Cheese” set. Because the Delicious Doodles image isn’t square, I chose three different squares of the image to use in each picture (for example the one I lined up on the left, one I lined up on the right and the last one I cut the square right from the middle). That way it looks kind of like someone was just snapping a bunch of different pics of the same scene in front of them and the birds are actually flying rather than in the same spot in three different shots.
I distressed the edges of the photos using Antique Linen Distress Ink, earning me +183 vintagey exp points. I used the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge to cut out the holly on some shiiiiiiiiny paper and the sentiment I stamped using the Bug Bites “Mistletoe” set.
On the inside I cut the shape out using the Art Philosophy cartridge and stamped the two sentiments using the “Say Cheese” set and the Echo Park “Holly Jolly Christmas" set.
This holly jolly card will develop in the following challenges:
Pile It On Challenge #48: P is for...polaroids
There is still much to be done before the big day - crafts to make, gifts to wrap, decorations to hang. I may need a few more stamina potions to get through these next couple weeks.
