Colour Create #86 - Silver, Blue and White

Its time for the last Colour Create Challenge of the year and this one is perfect for Christmas - Silver, Blue and White. Here is the lovely inspiration pic, chosen by Sharon:

15 December - Challenge 86 - Sharon L SILVER BLUE & WHITE

I decided to go Christmassy again as I have had heaps of cards to make for the ladies at work.

I have to apologise about the quality of this photo - the ink is much clear IRL, but no matter how I positioned my lights, I couldn't get a better picture. Anyhow, I edged my white base with my Apron Lace border punch and then punched two snowflakes down the right hand side. I used some blue and white Christmas paper and placed this behind the punched out snowflakes and then added a layer of white on the inside to cover the paper.  I stamped my sentiment with some silver ink and tied some white ribbon around the bottom. Finally I added a row of blue pearls above my ribbon.

On the inside, I stamped my sentiment again with some silver ink and then adhered the two snowflakes cut out of the card front to the corners.

Now make sure you hop on over to the Colour Create blog. Our sponsor this week is Michelle's Scrapbooking and the winner will receive a $30 gift voucher to spend!

  2. Beautiful card Kerry! I love the touch of color on such a crisp looking card.

  3. A beautiful CAS card Kerry! The snowflakes punched out the front and used inside is a fantastic idea! The pop of blue behind the punched out snowflakes, and the paerls inside, is just enough. Love it! hugs ;) Sabrina
