Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #154 – Judy’s “All About Christmas” Challenge

This week at Watercooler Wednesday we’re all about Christmas. I decided I wanted to use up some of the pieces of cling wrap painting I did recently, and played around for a little while trying to work out exactly what I wanted to do with it. This is what I came up with in the end.

I started by using a “Merry Christmas” die to cut from a snippet of the painted paper. This die is one I got free with a magazine a couple of years ago. I actually cut two at first and was planning on using them on opposite corners of the card, but couldn’t get it to look how I wanted.

Instead I found a piece of snowflake patterned paper and used a small circle die to cut out one of the large snowflakes to fit in the centre of my die cut sentiment. I used my glue pen to adhere the patterned paper to the die cut.

I then took a large snippet of coordinating patterned paper. This one is from the same paper pad and has the same pattern but with a different colour tone. I cut narrow strips of pearlised blue paper and adhered it to either edge of the snowflake panel, then adhered it to my dark blue card base. Finally I popped up the die cut with foam tape for some added dimension.

I’m happy with this card given that I had no idea where I was going with it when I started. It’s quite unusual for me to have no stamping on a card, and it wasn’t intentional with this one. It’s just how it happened!

  1. What an awesome journey creating this card took you on, Charlotte. It’s great when things happen according to plan but I personally love the surprise that comes with a creation that demands you go its way. It certainly worked out beautifully for you. Love that snippet of paper you created with that cling wrap technique. It makes a wonderful pattern around that centre snowflake.

  2. Great card Charlotte. It’s always so much fun to experiment with different products, and we aren’t always sure how our ideas will work out. This card came out great I like the simplicity of it and the paper you created worked out so nicely. Thanks for sharing.
