More 'Phill Martin meets Hunkydory' Christmas cards

At the risk of being a bit 'samey' - here's a slightly different card to the other one, published on here fairly recently.

A lot of the images in the Hunkydory pads don't really lend themselves to being cut down from the very generous 4" x 6" size, but some certainly do - such as the one I used on this card:
I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card blank

- an image from the Hunkydory Little Book of 'Sparkling Season' toppers, cut down to a square

- mounted the image onto a piece of deep red silk/satin mirri card, cut just slightly larger than the image

- next, glued the image panel in the centre of the card

- finally stamped the sentiment using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink and a stamp from Phill Martin's 'Scribbled Christmas Sentiment Corners'

I found the best way to check for possible images to cut down was just to have a couple of pieces of paper to blank off areas of the image and see if it still works OK.

And, of course I made three the same :)

Beautiful card Di. I did wrap the vellum over the top and bottom edges and attached to the back of the stamped panel with double sided tape, sorry for not making that clear xx

When I was in art class, they had us make two L shapes out of cardstock so we could check for cutting down our art. We cut down our stuff a lot. I like your card, particularly that font.

Been so busy with the bathroom crisis that I nearly missed this one. Brilliant ! Looks so classy and as you say quite a lot of the hunkydory images can be cut down with out loosing too much of the detail. Iiv'e been using some of those hunky dory kits we got as freebies from the work shops. Hugs Mrs A.
