Well todays card is to cover three challenges, mainly because Im feeling rather lazy but I hope that it meets all their criterias, so here we go, Mo's Digital Challenge for "Someone Special", Cute Card Thursday Challenge "Swirly Girly", and finally Stampin for the Weekend, "Red, Green and Gold".
Ive used one of Mo Mannings gorgeous Bella and Bronte images for this card, I love these two they are so cute and so lifelike, Ive printed her onto a piece of white card and coloured her with my copic pens after which I have cut her out with my rotatrim and mounted her onto some red card. The greeting is one of my stamps from my crafty stash, this was also stamped onto white card then cut out and mounted onto red card.
My base card is a 8"x 8" white card and for my first layer Ive used a piece of the same red card, and one of three papers from the Dovecraft "Tis the Season" papers all from http://www.donnasdenofcrafts.co.uk/, Ive used these a lot lately as it seems appropriate for this time of the year and the colouring is ideal for these Challenges, Red, Green and Gold, theres even a bit of blue on my third paper. These were cut and layered up as follows, the second mounts are two squares stuck at opposite corners and the third mount is stuck down the centre, over these I have placed a red and dark maroon holly leaf ribbon with a gold edge to the back of my first layer. This has loads of swirls on.
I then stuck my mounted image to the centre of my card and my greeting to the bottom right hand side, after which I have arranged three poinsettas to the top left hand side with a little bit of stickles on the white one just to give it some sparkle. To finish of I have stuck three red pearls down the right hand side.
