Creating a scene!!


Hello my crafty friends and I hope the week has started  well for you, if not, then I wish you better days to come. I have another " different" card to share today and boy did it take an age to make. I can safely say that I won't be making a habit of creating  this type of card!!


I started with my SB pierced rectangles for the frame and then made a card blank to suit.  Then had a really good sort through my "Seasonal" dies and embossing folders for inspiration. The trusty Cheery Lynn poinsettia strip had to make an appearance. The tree is by Dee's Distinctively range and the country landscape by Memory Box. A Craftwork Card's sentiment to finish off.





Here's an angled shot to show the dimension and the sheen of the Centura pearl cardstock.

  40. This is gorgeous Sarah - you obviously have an undiscovered (and now reburied!) talent - its a shame you didn't enjoy making it, i often find that cards without an image are like that - but you get a great sense of achievement! hugs Judith x

  43. I can tell that this card took a lot of time, Sarah, but oh, my gosh, was it ever worth it! It is spectacular in every way! I must have stared at it for five full minutes trying to figure it out! I can see that a lot of others agree with me!! If I were you, I would put this in a shadow box frame and bring it out every year as a Christmas decoration!! Hugs, Darnell
