Polkadoodles Grandparent Christmas

It is Tuesday so time for a new Anything Goes Challenge over at Polkadoodles Digi-Choosday Challenge Blog. Pop over today to claim a discount code, giving a great saving on all digital images.

The design teams brief was a card for grandparents using a Christmas Image and a Circle Die. In my mind christmas is all about family and being cosy. So this just felt like the perfect Grandparent card.

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Card Making Tutorial 

To being the 2 images from the winterland bundle were arranged together using Microspft word and printed out. This was coloured with alcohol markers and cut out using a stitched nesting die

A piece if A4 card was folded down the middle and using a circle cutter set to 7.5cm I cut the card base, leaving a tiny gap at the folded joint.

The image was adhered to the card base.

The sentiment was arranged and printed, then blended in Bundled sage. The 'at Christmas was cut using a tag die and finished with a piece of twine

The rest if the sentiment was trimmed to fit the circle base and adhered to the card panel

The card was finished with nuvo drops, and tiny snowflake embellishments. The flames within the fire were covered with glossy accents
