I have my first showcase post on the Hope and Chances blog today. I'm still amazed I made it onto the team. A dream come true!
I used the Spellbinders Holly Tags set which is lovely and so versatile. You can find this set in the Hope and Chances Creativity store here. They have great offers on Spellbinders and other crafty goodies too. I used the oval tag for this card:-
I started with a 7" card blank and layered up a piece of red Core'dinations cardstock. My patterned paper is from Craftwork Cards and I edged with Pebeo gold gilding wax. My three layers are made up of a banner using Spellbinders Holiday Magic M-Bossabilities folder in red with gold gilding wax applied. The gold card has been stamped with a JustRite Holly Background stamp in Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Mowed Lawn. My third layer is a piece of green ribbon with a gold interference.
For my main sentiment topper, I started with 300gsm white card and die cut and embossed the oval holly tag from Spellbinders. I added gold gilding wax again to the embossed sections by stenciling through the die. I stamped the sentiment in the same Distress Ink to give a lovely bright focal point and added dimension with 3D foam pads.
Looking forward to sharing more projects with my favourite crafty brand. Keep a look out at the Hope and Chances blog.
