Well, August is nearly gone and we are speeding towards Christmas so the theme for the challenge over at Polkadoodles Challenge Blog is Get Organised for Christmas and I'm here with my Design Team mid-challenge inspiration :)
I decided, mainly because its something I don't usually do, to make a shaped card this time using the wonderful images on the Polkadoodles Festive Hollybobs Work and Play CD!
The door was cut on 250gsm card using my sillouette (how did I ever manage without it!) and I left most of the door white as I wanted the images to stand out.
On the inside, I used one of the lush backing papers from the Festive Hollybobs Work and Play CD and made faux stairs out of white card (I layered it 3 times so that it added a little depth so I could have the images at different depths).
All of the characters and the Christmas tree are from the same CD as is the printed bow on the front of the door (another first for me, I've always used ribbon, but I think that the printed bow looks really good)....
I used my Graph'it Marker pens to colour the images and used the following colours....
Skin (for all): 4120, 4115, 4155, 4145, 4135
Hair combos: 4170, 3110, 3150 - 1210, 3110, 4170 - 3150, 4170, 1230 - 3110, 3125
Clothes combos: 9100, 9102, 9103 - 8230, 8260, 8250, 8270 - 4145, 4135, 4175 - 5210, 5215, 5220, 3150
With the addition of a little glitter (glamour dust) to the front of the door for a little sparkle that was all there was too it!
I really hope you like this one and can join us over at the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog as us crafters get organised for Christmas!
