February is always a busy month for crafters in every corner of the globe because, of course, we have Valentine's Day to celebrate on the 14th.
On a personal level, it is also a month jam-packed with birthdays and celebrations for my friends and family, so I'd hoped to be much more organised than I actually am at this point. Hmmmm ... Do you detect a recurring complaint here LOL?!
Not to worry ... I'm kick-starting my February crafting with this card for our Bah! Humbug! Christmas Challenge #5.
Irene decided on "HOLLY" as the theme and as it's the first challenge of the month, there is a lovely prize on offer for one lucky random entry! You've got to be "innit to winnit" so get yourself over there sharpish and join in 'cos
"... it could be YOU!"
Time restrictions has meant that my sample card is very simple this week.
I used another of my new Cuttlebug Christmas embossing folders, (an exclusive set from Oh My Crafts), on a piece of smooth white card and then cut around the wreath with decoupage snips.
This was then mounted with foam pads onto 2 layers of pretty white and gold holly background paper matted with gold mirri card.
The background paper has a lovely soft pearlescent sheen which the camera is just not picking up, but trust me when I say it is quietly luxurious in real life.
A greeting is placed across the centre of the wreath and that's that!
No ribbons ... no gems ... no glitter ... no ink ... no colouring ... no fuss.
If you'd prefer to see something more exciting, then please check out the other samples made by my "Humbugger Buddies" Ann and Irene. You won't be disappointed I can assure you.
