Hopefully Tink isn't reading my blog but my friend and I are taking her and her daughter to see Cinderella in Panto tomorrow! She has no idea yet, so hopefully she will enjoy it! We are willing the snow to stay away for just one more day!
Today it's our PDCC challenge. This time I played with a new doily cutter that arrived the other day, I LOVE this cutter, it's total utter gorgeousness! It's from MFT.
Now before I share the details of this card I want to tell you about my evil ribbon! I bought some lovely red polka dot ribbon in the East of India range, I used it the other day for my 'Sew Lovely' card. It's easy to use, looks really pretty too. Well, its evil cousin, the beige and red stripe version is not 'sew lovely'!! I've tried to use it a few times before now and do you think I can get it to sit right? Not a chance! I pulled, twisted, knotted, undid, pulled, twisted, knotted, undid, but got absolutely nothing that resembled anything decent. Now I wouldn't mind if that was the first time, but this was about the third card I've tried with it! So, if anyone wants some evil ribbon let me know, I'll post it out to you lol. It would have been so nice for this card as well, a perfect match, but I don't think I am the right owner for it, hence the sparkly ribbon instead, which is really pretty, but not quite the match for our challenge. Hopefully I can get away with it under artistic licence!
This is the gorgeous pic that Sarah gave us, isn't it adorable?!
So here are the details for my card...
- Mat card with polka dot patterned paper
- Die cut doily and distress with Antique Linen ink
- Stamp snowflakes with Tumbled Glass distress ink, stamp off once before staming onto the doily for a lighter effect, add finished doily to card using pop dots for dimension
- Stamp, colour and fussy cut a reindeer, add to doily with pop dots
- Pull, twist.. (you get the picture) the evil ribbon to see if you can make anything half decent with it, then give up on that and cut 3 strips of sparkly ribbon, one for the reindeer's collar, the other two for the bottom of the card
- Stamp the 'Noel' sentiment, distress edges and cut corners off at angles
- Move the evil ribbon out of sight before it gets cut into lots of little pieces! Find it a new loving home!
