Well I'm back with another card for Shelly's Images, Can you believe Christmas is only 5 days away! This week's challenge is "Out with the OLD, In with the NEW". Use something new on your project. You can win the $6 Voucher from the store.
So here is my card which I started off using Cherry Cobbler paper for my base which is a 5"x 7" finished card size. I found this paper collection called Daisyd 'Mistletoe Memories' in my stash that honestly I really don't know why I bought it except it made me think of old fashion Christmas back before my time. When I took it out there was this paper that looked exactly like my image that I used. So there is a reason for my paper hoarding.. I added 3 layers of the fine paper collection before I cut out a square frame using my newest dies that just came in mail called Marianne Creatables Dies - Square Frame. I cut out another frame using another new die called Marianne Creatables Dies - Anja's Square using green holly velvet paper that was also in my stash. I sponged brown ink over the raised areas. Then I laid down a postcard from the same collection using the old fashion bells on it. I printed the Jingle Bells onto shimmery white paper and colored them using Prismacolor Pencils. You can find this image in Shelly's Store here; http://www.shellysimages.com/DigiShop/index.php?id_product=152&controller=product . I added some Smooch Glitz in Goldrush which is gold glitter that I accented on to the bells and Frost which just clear glitter that I placed on the ribbon. I added some ribbon along with a bow that I found at Michael's. I added some poinsettia flowers that were from my stash using a red brad from Stampin'Up. I again used some new dies from Marianne Creatables called Mistletoe Twigs and Leaves using light gold metallic and gold stripe metallic paper. So there you have it something Old which is my paper from Daisyd 'Mistletoe Memories' and something New Marianne Creatable dies!
