Peaceful Pines - 'tis the season

Hello! Hello!

It is that time of the week that I get to share my entry for this week's Global Design Project challenge! To say that I am a fan of Teneale Williams, is putting it lightly! Teneale is the Designer of this weeks sketch challenge. Before I share her sketch... this is my card....

Never in my life did I imagine a Christmas card with a Basic Black, Very Vanilla and Gold colour combo! I absolutely LOVE it! 

Teneale's beautiful sketch!

Adding stitching has now almost become the norm for me...

My Product List

Hints & Things

  • The Winter Wonderland Designer Series Vellum Stack is breathtakingly beautiful! At first I used up all the Gold foiled vellum in the stack - I was to scared to try the Black! I can now say that I used quite a bit of the Black foiled sheets and  is just something about this Vellum Stack.... The musical note sheet from the Home For Christmas Designer Series paper worked very well with it, I think.
  • My strips for the rosette measured 30.5cm x 4cm and I scored every 1cm lengthwise (using the Metric Scoring Plate with my Simply Scored scoring tool. 
  • I found that a hot glue gun works best to glue the rosette into shape.
  • Dare to be brave...
Let me know what you think - I would love to hear from you!

Take care!

  3. Thanks Paula! I keep my sewing machine handy for my cards, the moment fabric comes into the picture I cannot do a thing!
