GDT make for Love To Create Challenge Blog...

Hello Again,

I was so happy to be asked to be a Guest Design Team member for Love to Create Challenge Blog they are a fantastic team and it's a challenge I play along with all the time:D

Here's the challenge details:
Challenge #145
Theme: Holiday Cheer (Non-traditional colors)

And here is my GDT make....

It was great fun making a Christmas card without using the traditional red and green :D

Here's what I used to make it:
Image: Frosty Snowflake Fairy from A Day For Daisies
Coloured: with my Graph'it Marker pens (pinks are 4135, 5110 and 5130) with added PeeWee glitter and Cosmic Shimmer PVA in Pink available from That Craft Place (facebook group to shop and order every month)
Backing papers: by Michele R Designs and are HERE
Embellies: all available from That Craft Place

How did I make it!
The backing to this one is made by using the elements pack from Michele R Designs and cutting multiple tags and tickets.  I then hole punched the tags adding lace and then layered then at different angles over the 7"x7" card base (with some hang over, but still to fit an 8x8 envelope).  I filled the gaps with the tickets, some were raised using foam pads (from That Craft Place) and some hanging over.  The voile was added using the hot glue gun to gather it in places and then I added the mini glitter balls randomly.  The tag was edged in a pearl string to hide the fact I can't cut circles! lol
Finally I added 2 cut tags as the insert and there you go :D

The close ups:

I would like to say a massive thank you to the team at the Love to Create Challenge Blog for inviting me to be their Guest Designer and I hope you all hop over to the main blog to see what the DT have been up to and join the challenge.

Thank you for visiting my blog once again and thank you for all your comments, they are appriciated.

Happy Crafting :D
