Suzanne's First Card Challenge
My friend and fellow "Sheenie" Suzanne has posted her first ever card challenge. She is such a lovely lady who always makes such stunning cards and her blog is full of tutorials and tips to help you make wonderful cards too. If you haven't already visited her, please do pop over. Make sure that you've got a few hours to spare though as you won't be able to drag yourself away easily, trust me!
The challenge is: make a card using letters as the main feature - can be the whole card or letters on the base of a standard card - you chose
Well, I've made all my christmas cards now except for my sons' cards, so I decided to use this challenge to make my youngest son's card.
The card size is A4 folded lengthwise and I used large stencils to cut out the "Noel" in silver glitter card. The letters have been embellished with some Magnolia images and star peel-offs.
The little Magnolia images were a gift from my lovely friend Becky and just a small part of a whole pad full of images that she enclosed with my christmas card. Thank you Becky, I love all of the images, but didn't think I'd be using them so soon! They have been coloured with my much loved ProMarkers.
