Inspired by..

Putu Princess Escapes, which is the Etsy shop we're drawing inspiration from in the Etsy Inspired Challenge this week.

I made this Christmas card:

Using some of the lovely Jovial collection papers from Basic Grey. The reindeer is cut from one of the papers called 'Nordic' which was my absolute favourite from the collection and I begged Suzanne to include it in my DT kit this month!

All the other details on this card were created using stuff from the HBS shop too. It's a Green Tara flower, Prima lace, and a small brad from the Jovial collection. And have you heard much about the Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze? I hadn't. But I received some in my kit and so I had a grand-old-time with it. It's pretty cool. It comes in a little bottle with a built in brush. It looks (and smells!) a lot like nail polish. It's quite a thin consistency and has more of a subtle shimmer to it and of course comes in a range of beautiful colours. I used my 'Cowboy' Glimmer Glaze around the edges of my paper to give it a faux-burnt look :-)

Oh, and did I forget to mention that I was using this shirt from the Etsy shop as my inspiration? Mainly the colours really!

  6. Wow, love the details on this card! Love the colors and the trim, well, everything! May I ask, where does the woodgrain impression come from? Is that built in the paper or is it an embossing plate? I'm looking for one!
