#209 'Add some Texture'

Good Morning everyone another new challenge at Ooh La La begins today. This time the challenge has been chosen by Avril 'Add some Texture'  If you pop over to Ooh La La  (link in sidebar) you will see if you were a winner of our last challenge  #208 'Something beginning with 'F' ''. There were some great entries and who knew that you would find so many interesting 'F' words for your creations. Amazing!!

My inspiration for you this time is a Christmas card using the Ooh La La CD 'Shawn Jenkins Collection'. You can find it here ooh-la-la-creations.

The style of of card I have created is called a 'Joy' card although I have no idea why. It's two cards in one. The smaller card goes inside the larger card and overlaps. The main card began as white card stock using two sheets of A4 joined together to create the front flap. The front was then cut in half. I used the CD 'Shawn Jenkins Collection' and printed off the background paper matting it on top off co-ordinating aqua card stock from a Lidl's paper pack. I put aqua card stock inside and placed a strip of the background paper down the side.

The smaller card was white card stock again with a mat of the designer paper and  then a mat of white which I embossed in the Bug and added the image from the CD to the top.

This was a fun card to make but it is a little large and ends as an 8 inch square card which might be expensive to post in the UK. (I am not sure, as we don't have those restrictions here in Cyprus|)

So another Christmas card to add to the slowly building Christmas stock!! I am sure you'll enjoy this challenge as it's an easy peasy one ......just add some texture to any thing you are creating and Voila!!

Have a great week and use plenty of sun cream if you're holidaying here in Cyprus as that sun is very strong!! Speak to you again soon.

  4. Love the colours on this card so clean and crisp. I'm glad you get Joanna to ship to Cyprus she has some fab items.
    My card where I embossed the image would have been a demo if I had time on TV - maybe next time.....
