Valery Anne at Valery Anne designs, set the theme of Round cards for this fortnights Christmas Card Club. If you would like to pop on over and check out the other club members cards, The hyperlinks are on my right sideboard.
Today's card is for my eldest daughter. I wanted to make her a personalized Christmas card...something that acknowledged her "new" vintage trailer, and the enjoyment she has found in camping!
She recently bought a vintage Trillium trailer. I have made a few adjustments to my NBUS Cottage Craft Christmas trailer die to accommodate the design style of her her trailer. I left out a window that sits at the top of the door and moved the wreath that sits sits on that window to sit alone. She will get a kick out of the fact that this actually looks like her trailer!
I will entering this card over at Darnell's 12 th NBUS Challenge. Pop over to take a peek. It is a wonderful challenge that closes on Oct 4th and has many fabulous prizes.
This card is made from snippets of black, grey, white and cream card. The circle card as well as the red Bazzill Pomegranite Splash scalloped mat, were cut on the free machines at my local papercraft store. I just did not anything large enough at home. To make it a wee bit more Christmassy, I added a few snippets of red and green glitter card as well.
It was an easy card to make, just a bit tedious to find all the wee die cut elements and piece them back together. Found some rather large rhinestones in my drawer and added those for some extra sparkle. My daughter just bought a house 12 doors away, so I can add as much depth as I want to this card as it will be hand delivered!
I randomly used two shades of Stampin up chalk on the stitched round die, to create an illusion of the sky. The design of the rest of the card was created by simply following the Round card brief set by Valery.
I would love any suggestions for an appropriate verse to use for the inside of this card. I will be awaiting your ideas.
Since the trailer scene was completely made with snippets, I am taking my card over to Di at Pixies Crafty Workshop where the theme is always "must use snippets".
