Good morning! I can't believe how fast this week has flown - and that it is already Friday!!! But, that means it's time for Unity Friends With Flair - so that's good news! Here is what I made this week:
I made a card last week (that I still haven't posted yet!) for the Kit of the Month Sketch Challenge...the only problem was that I forgot to use a Kit of the Month! So...this is my second try - and this time I remembered to use my Kit of the Month! Here is this months sketch:
This also fits for the Unity December Challenge - to make a Seasonal Card with Non-Traditional colors. I had so much fun with these colors! It all started because I got my first Zing Embossing Powder in Metallic Silver - and WOW!!! I'm in LOVE! Can't believe how pretty it is - and can't wait to collect a few more!
I started off using a background stamp called Tea Time Pattern and embossing it with the Zing powder. I then inked the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink in Spun Sugar. I cut a circle with a Spellbinder's die, then stamped a snowflake pattern from the September KOTM in the distress ink, then stamped the snowflake from the October KOTM and embossed them with the Zing powder as well.
The sentiment - also heat embossed - is also from the September KOTM. Didn't it get all that detail beautifully?
Next, I distressed all the edges with my Tim Holtz distress tool, matted with a couple different papers - the gray chevron is from My Mind's Eye - an older pad in my stash. Finished off with a bit of bling, some tulle, and a button by Crate Paper. For the center, I used some Baker's Twine, and pulled out the white part of the twist, so I just had the pink that I wanted.
So glad you stopped by again today! Hope all your Christmas preparations are going well - and you are looking forward to a peaceful and special day! Merry Christmas!
