Howdy everyone! Can you believe it's November already? There are literally only 49 days until Christmas! How scary is that???
This week, our lovely hostess Cheryl has got a fabulous challenge for everyone. Check it out...
I had to think a bit about this one at first. I finally decided to make a card that has a few "pages" to it. First I basically cut one quarter (a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 square) of a piece of Classic White Cardstock off to create my card base. Then I took our Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Classic Frame Die and die cut the top panel of my cardstock out - creating my negative die cut shape. I backed with a piece of patterned red paper, also cut with an oval die and centered the oval in the negative shape. I also added a simple double bow made from "Basque Red" seam binding ribbon.
Then I stamped the glorious holiday decorated door from the "Home for the Holidays" stamp set using Memento "Black Tuxedo" ink onto some Classic White Cardstock. I coloured in my image using the following Copic Collections:
Here is what it looks like when you lift the flap and reveal the whole image. I matted my image with "Red Devil" cardstock from the "Poppy" Colour Made Easy cardstock collection.
