I read something on a blog that shocked me into action .. some rumour that it was 11 weeks to Christmas. As that was some days ago, I am guessing it is less than that! So my desk today sees the remnant of what this shock caused me to do, to make 18 Christmas cards in two sittings.
For those not in the know - it is time for What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday over at our Queen of desks - Julia.
|Now Princess Emily has her card, so I can share it with you. It is a trifold card. I did some research on Pinterest and made a board of castle cards, as Emily was having a princess party for her fifth birthday. This card was a combination of cards from my board. The template was here on this site - but adapted it. The
base of card outline was scrap card then printed off sheets of dusky
pink to emboss and use for walls so had enough of the colour (scanned
sheet of light pink I had in stash. I knew wouldn't have enough of it as
it took quite a few A4 sheets).
Inked up TH Brick folder with grey ink before embossing to define outline of bricks. Did same with woodgrain for the door, and roof with CB bubbles folder. I took the image from her invitation to the party. Some close ups below. Greeting was a digi, and extended a SB greeting die. Added bling all over.
PS In answer Nikki's question below, we are not near the bad storms, thankfully. They are down south, in southern NSW and Victoria, and I am praying for them all.
