Happy November 1st! I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween and didn’t indulge in too many little chocolate bars, lol! And if you did, I promise not to tell. Today, I am sharing the My Time Made Easy Pretty Palette Challenge #74, and this week’s colours are…So while you are sitting at your computer (eating the leftover Halloween treats), you can check out my Christmas card. I first printed out a piece of red gingham paper from the Picnic of Patterns digital paper pack, matted it with black card stock, and used it as my backdrop. I really love the little santa from the Homemade Holiday 20 Images Digital Set, and used him as my focal point. I opened the image and sentiment in Gimp where I could size and colour it. I then printed it out on white card stock and used my Cricut to cut out the tag shape.I ended up cutting another larger tag layer in the gray dot paper to frame out the white. I really like the geometrics happening on this card! I then added the little red gems at the bottom and the red ribbon at the top of the tag.Now, my Santa tag was looking cute, but I still felt it needed something and decided to add some glitter for texture and sparkle. There’s no time like Christmas to get out the glitter! I used my Martha Stewart glue pen to spread glue around and then dumped white glitter all over the glued areas. I tapped off the excess and used a small paint brush to sweep away any lingering offenders.And last but not least, I cut out the black swirls for each corner and stuck a gem in the centre of each. This card looks really sparkly and pretty up close and personal.
We would really love to see you use these colours on any creation of your own and link it up to the MTME blog site. You don’t have to use My Time Made Easy products and if you play for the next 4 challenges you have a chance at winning a Pretty Package from the store. There are loads of fantastic coordinating 3D projects, stamp sets and digital paper packs to choose from, so check it out.
Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you back here real soon!
