Christmas Craft Creations February 2021

 Morning all

I’m delighted to let you know that I have joined the Christmas Craft Creations Design Team. If you’ve not heard of it before, it is a monthly challenge for Christmas themed cards and the challenge blog can be found here

The theme for February is Blue and Silver.

Initially I was going to do something with silver heat embossing, however as I ended up making my card late at night I couldn’t risk using the heat tool and waking my children! So I looked through my dies and was inspired by a set I received a while a ago with a copy of Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine.

The centre panel is actually adhered to the inside of the card blank with an aperture window cut into the card front. You can see this better here:

I find with these layering dies that the weight of the layering can cause the card to tip forward so this was a good way to stop that happening as all the weight is now on the back panel of the card. 

I have backed the star layer with silver glitter card and to emphasise the silver in the theme I have cut my sentiment from silver glitter card also. 

I hope you like it and are inspired to join in the challenge. Please head over to the challenge blog to check out more inspiration from the fabulous design team. Don’t forget to link back to the challenge and share the graphic on your blog post or mention #christmascraftcreations on your Instagram post. 

Much love
