I loved the Hope and Chances Charity kit for December although the 'Thank you' sentiment wasn't right for me to be honest but I knew I could change that. The kits were sold in aid of 'Last Chance Animal Rescue', which of course tugged at my heartstrings right away.
This is the card I made from the kit:
I made the card exactly to Christine's instructions, apart from a couple of tweaks. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the flowers and leaves before popping them onto the card. An idea I got from our lovely Kath B a while ago. Then found a snippet of white card, the whitest I could find here to match and stamped the sentiment using a very old FunStamps wood mounted stamp and Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink. Then die cut the sentiment into a square, exactly the same size as the one that came with the kit - and ran a silver Calligraphy pen around the edges for a little extra definition.I love the idea of creating a 'dropped shadow' by splitting a silver die cut exactly like the white one and offsetting it behind the white one.
And yes, the camera has picked up a bit of a ripple on the square silver backing layer. I think the silver card should have been thicker, although in real life it's not too noticeable. I'm just happy to help Christine's fund raising and also have a card kit to play with each month!
I'm entering this card into ScrappyMo's 'Rudolph Days' Challenge for January HERE. It runs from the 25th to the end of each month and is a great way to add to your Christmas cards (what do you mean - already?).
That brings my card count for Christmas 2021 up to 17 already.
