This Starry Wreath Die arrived this week, just in time to enter Twofer Card Challenge #33 - the last challenge for 2020.
By the time I had assembled the shaker element of the first card, it was looking so festive, I couldn't think of anything more appropriate than a simple "2021". I'm sure I'm not the only one who will be glad to say goodbye to 2020! The wreath and numbers were cut from a brilliant white holographic card stock - not easy to capture in a photograph. I filled the shaker with pale blue sequins and clear glass seed beads.
The wreath that I removed from the first card became the focal point of the second card - now that's what I call a twofer!
Not everything went to plan on this second card though! I specifically cut a silver wreath so I could emboss the sentiment in silver but I could not find my silver embossing powder anywhere! I have many, many, embossing powders - several black, several gold, several white, pinks, blues, greens but just the one silver and it was nowhere to be found! I don't even have a silver ink pad, and the best I could come up with was this Brilliance Pearlescent Blue which is a better match in real life than it appears in this photograph.
Timeout Challenge #175
has the prompt quick and because this card came together in minutes (once I gave up looking for the silver embossing powder), I'm entering there.
I specifically chose this blue card stock because of this mood board at Double D Challenges
(I'll definitely be back again for this one - I have loads of other ideas)
It's been a busy week, we had the First Holy Communion in our parish last Saturday and today. Only 6 children made it last Saturday, and as there were so few, I thought it would be nice to make them a card. It was to have been 9 making it today, but in the end 13 children celebrated their First Holy Communion today. Over 60 were signed up, but the majority are postponing until next spring. It was so odd seeing the girls all dressed up in white with veils and masks. I wanted to sing for them today, but I think that will be my last until Christmas (I hope) - there's just too much COVID around now! Here's the card I made for them. The wheat die is also a NBUS I bought at a recent craft fair.
Thanks for stopping by - I hope you enjoyed your visit. If you leave a comment, I'll know where to find you and can return the favour!
Hugs and stay safe,
