Christmas Card Club - Texture
This fortnight Rachel of Fischer's Cards and Crafts blog has chosen a texture theme for our Christmas Card Club. I do not have any stencils or stencil paste, so had to make do with what was on hand. Decided to make my texture from a hunk of hessian and some liberally applied chalk paint that I enhanced with a bit of glitter and drywall compound.
The Christmas CArd Club members are on my right sideboard...If you pop by to take a look at their creations you will not be disappointed.
Withour further adieu, here is my card...
And here is the inside...
The hunk of hessian (burlap) is my VOS item. I bought a huge roll of this years ago. The plaid mat is from a box of prefolded 5x7 Christmas cards and envelopes, that I bought in the after Xmas bargains a couple of years ago. I love the plaid, but the card weight was too light to suit me so I sliced them apart, cut them down, and now use them for 5x5 mats.
The dark green mat is from my scrapbooking snippets files.
The inside sentiment is my very old favourite Xmas sentiment rubber stamp.
The Wellington Bear decoupage image, the inside topper, and the sentiment, are from a kit I picked up before Christmas, at my local papercraft store. It is a marvelous kit, full of toppers, decoupage pages, DP and embellies. I think I will be able to make at least two dozen cards with it!
I made the texturized "snow" from Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, glitter and a wee touch of drywall compound!
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
