Well you definitely need your woolies today it is flippin freezing out there today. Not that I have been out mind! Yesterday was a mad day getting all the Christmas cleaning done as both hubby and I were at home and it was the only time we had free to get it done. I put the winter duvet on yesterday how was that for good timing? It is fatal though as I just didn't want to get out of bed!
Now todays card is made so that I could enter it into one of my crafy friends challenge blog Craftymess Challenge Blog, there are only 4 entries so far please take part if you can. I do hope some of you will take part in this challenge as there are only a few entries to date. The theme is "Choose a Country" I picked Paris as you will no doubt have guessed from the title of my blog post.
Kraft card as the base card which I have punched with X-cut corner punch
Black pearlescent card
Next layer is double sided sticky paper which I have added micro beads for texture
Postcard is from my stash which I have distressed with PanPastels Burnt Sienna and Orange Shade
The Topper and stamps are from a sheet of Graphic 45, Glimpse of Paris
Using a pair of scissors I have scored around the postcard and added Adirondak Expresso ink.
I have also added Fran-tage down the right hand side and along the bottom. Before layering the postcard down I have added an eiffel tower charm.
The topper has been heat embossed with clear embossing powder and then scored with scissors around the edges. I then manipulated the topper so the embossing cracked to age it.
To finish off I added the penny farthing which I bought from Crafty Emblies
This is a close up of the topper.
Thank you for Stopping by Today
