I am here today with my interpretation of the GORGEOUS card over at Muse, by the lovely Karen! Her card is so beautiful...it's really feminine without a drop of pink in sight! ;)
First up, here's my card...
This card just kinda came into being! Now, I realise that sounds a little bit silly, but it's true. I knew I wanted to CASE the blue/purple panel from Karen's card, but I didn't want it to look like an exact replica which would've been an easy trap to fall into because where do you go from a card that great?! :) I had a piece of vellum floating around on my desk and I was having a bit of a tidy (situation normal! My desk should be super clean the amount of time I spend clearing it!) Anyway, I was looking at the vellum and wondering whether you'd be able to see colours through it if I blended a background? Luckily it worked and here we are! I am trying to get a wriggle on with my Christmas cards so that was the obvious direction for this card. I embossed the snowflakes in silver, white and silver pearl to emulate the colours Karen used for her Dandelions.
I also used some NBUS on this card! Yesterday I received a parcel, a very small parcel I might add, in the post. Where I live there are two art shops, that is all. They're not very big shops, more like little family run places and I love them, but they don't stock a great deal and so sometimes I have to resort to online shopping. Ok, so it's not that much of a chore (!) but I do prefer to keep the small high streets shops in business - it's my little contribution to social, local and economical sustainability :) Anyway, I had to order some double sided tape from an online shop and I noticed this cute little stamp set out of the corner of my eye. (ok, I was looking!) It's Bo Bunny's Sentiment Stamps and it's perfect! It has a sentiment for every occasion in one little set! It just jumped into my basket and ended up in my parcel! He he! :) I even waited for my delivery to arrive before I finished this card because I wanted to use this Christmas sentiment! So this NBUS is seriously new!! :)
Without further ado, here is Karen's lovely Muse card...
