I'm back with a card for the current Jingle Belles challenge. I've been gone toooo long! This fortnight we are challenged to use red OR green, but not both!
Once again, I was inspired by what was out on my desk. One of the items is a pack of newly acquired Tim Holtz Core'dinations KRAFT CORE NOSTALGIC Colorcore 4.25 X 5.5 Cardstock. That's a lot of words to say "really cool colors of textured card stock with a Kraft core", which may actually be more words, but ... you get the idea.
Here's my card, then I'll explain:
All along my plan was to apply Opal Liquid Pearls to the raised dots in the center of the flowers and the other dots I'm calling snowflakes. I am liquid-pearls-impaired. :( BUT, on a lighter note, I may have invented a new technique. You see, when I realized I'm liquid-pearls-impaired, I was well on my way to ruining an almost-completed card. I do that all. the. time. I have such pretty trash. But I was determined to save this one.
I did such a poor job of applying the dots, I actually tried to save myself and took a wet wipe to try to wipe them off so I could start over. Well, the pearls came off, but so did some more of the green, which revealed more of the kraft core. Lookie:
One final note: Out of respect for the challenge to use NO RED, since I obviously chose the green option, I removed the piece of red card stock from the back of my ghetto photo studio when I took the photo of the card. It just seemed right.
I'm going back in for a few more cards! Thanks for stopping by!
