Good Saturday morning everyone! This weeks colors over at Dynamic Duos are Black and Gold with a dessert option of adding music.
I'm also entering this one in CCMC230, which happens to feature the colors of my card! I'm loving this Champagne Glimmer paper. I was so happy to see when SU added a gold color to their glimmers. I'm a fan of anything that sparkles! Although I've made plenty of cards that don't have any sparkle to them, it seems like I'm not happy with it until some glitter has been added. As I look at the sample from the other design team members at Dynamic Duos, I find the ones I'm truely attracted to have sparkle! Also, this card qualifies for Just Add Ink 148: Just add christmas!
The main inspiration for my card comes from a card that I spotted last year made by Lorri. I couldn't wait to try one for myself, and when this challenge came up, I thought it might be the perfect time to put it together. I'm so pleased with the way this turned out! I loved pulling together all the fun little elements for each package on the sleigh!
For the sleigh, I started by running a piece of Champagne Shimmer through the Big Shot using my Top Note die. I cut the top part off to make the sleigh. I used a couple of little swirls from the Swirly Decorative Strip die to make the legs of the sleigh. Next, I cut out different sized boxes in different colors and decorated them up. I had to include the music note paper to encompass the music theme from the DD33 challenge. The whole thing went together pretty fast, actually and is far easier to make than it looks. I can't tell you how in love with this card I am! It's been sitting out as part of my christmas decor since it was created, so I can admire it everytime I walk by!
