The current challenge over at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge is 'reach for the stars'. Instead of going down the route of traditional stars in the sky I opted to upcycle a tall and thin Christmas card from 2013:
- SU's 'Smoky Slate' card stock to make an A6 sized card
- the upcycled card front, just trimmed down to suit the A6 card blank - I actually cut a smaller twiggy heart from the bottom of the card - mounted onto a piece of red glitter card (bargain pack from Hobbycraft)
- the image was already tickled with red sparkle (hence my choice of the red glitter backing card) so all I added was a few clear sparkly gems here and there
And as always, this card is also for Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra where it's always 'Anything goes'.
Tell you what, that red glitter card sheds like crazy - no wonder it was cheap!
