Each month our Stampin' Up team (The Inksomniacs) have a challenge to keep the creative juices flowing and to inspire us. This month we have a card sketch to use as inspiration.
My creative process starts usually with colours, stamp images and then i design the layout.
So this is what's challenging for me, to start at the end and work backwards.
I have been working with Christmas colours lately like real red, old olive and gold ribbons so that was my base.
I added washi tape to create the horizontal element on the background and ran the whole card base through the big shot and dotted embossing folder.
I also like to repeat the colours in the images that I stamp... But I hadn't stamped anything yet!
Tied on some gold bakers twine and gold ribbon as per the card sketch and now, all it needs is a sentiment. It's no longer a Christmas card so maybe Birthday, A thank you or thinking of you?
