Today, I have a birthday card to share with you. This weeks themed challenge at Polka Doodles is a card for a Young adult or a Birthday at Christmas. One of the main rules to remember when taking part in a Polka Doodles challenge, is that you can only enter 10 challenges including Polka Doodles in the total. There are fabulous prizes to be won each week and we wouldn't want you to miss out by not following this rule.
Anyways, on to my creation for that wee bit of inspiration this week.
I went with the Birthday at Christmas theme and this is what I came up with.
Both of the pale blue papers and the main sentiment are from the Studio 12 CD - Picknix Collection2 - Gingerbread Twist. I backed all these inked layers, with card from my stash.
I merged the paper and the main sentiment by using Microsoft Word. I also used a sketch that was recently up on another challenge website.
My Happy Birthday sentiment is from the CTMH stamp set that comes with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.
One of my bloggie friends Sandy of Sandy's Crafty Creations introduced me to tulle (please check out her blog it's awesome), and I have been wanting to use it for ages. Well, today I really felt that this finished off the card.
The snowflake is made up of three, cut at 1.25", 1" and 0.75" from the Winter Woodland cartridge (page 35). And secured this on the knot of the tulle with a glue dot.
I popped up the middle sentiment with some foam tape.
The inside of the card compliments the front and I added some single snowflakes to the corners.
I hope this has given you a little inspiration and now you need to get yourself creating and entering the challenge this week. Go on, what have you got to lose. The challenge runs until the 23 December, so you have plenty of time.
