Hi there! Heather here to share a new challenge with you today. This week the design team gals are showcasing Christmas and Holiday cards so my challenge twist to you today is to pull out you favorite Lily Bee goodies and CREATE A SHAPED CARD. This means no standard size rectangle cards, unless...you create a festive holiday shape as the main embellishment on the card.
I created these two cards to hopefully spur a few ideas. First, is my shaped card...a snow globe.
Supplies: Christmas Cheer (6x6 Tiny Tablet, Figgy Pudding 12x12 paper); Autumn Spice (Nutmeg 12x12 paper)
I cut the globe portion out of thick transparency on my CAMEO but creating a circle card cutting file. I then cut another circle the same size out of white cardstock and another circle with a snowflake design and affixed them over the back of the card. I then embellished with snow covered meadows, deer and a tree.
Next is a standard card but I created a Christmas tree out of triangles and used it as the main focus for the card.
I used the banners to create additional smaller trees and stamped the sentiment using the stamp set from this collection.
