Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Guest Designer @ The Card Concept!



My Style this time around is definitely Shabby Vintage!  At least that is what I was going for! LOL

TCCI am tickled to be Guest Designing with The Card Concept this month and next month as well!  When Lesley Croghan messaged me, there was no hesitation in my response…that is for sure!!  Thanks Lesley for asking me!!  I am thrilled to say the least!  The challenge for the next two weeks is a Krafty Christmas as you can see by that great graphic!

If you have never played along with The Card Concept here are some of the details!  I love the creative idea behind this blog!

Choose one of the design team “styles” to create your card. Click HERE for the different styles summary. Explain in your post which style you used. Link up your blog post.  Last but not least, comment on the card ahead of you and behind you in the linky. It’s really that simple! 

Card Details: When I saw this challenge I decided to try and make my Kraft card look a little aged and rugged.   Hope I succeeded!  I ran the back piece of card stock through my SU horizontal lines embossing folder twice, both vertical and horizontal to try and achieve a checkerboard pattern. I also distressed the heck out of the entire card with the SU distressing tool. The stocking is something I hand drew last year and made a stencil for.  My favorite part of this card is the bow!  Which is also embossed with the lattice embossing folder and I actually crumbled it up a few times.  The snowflakes were heat embossed with silver embossing powder.  Both the sentiment and the snowflake stamps are from Gina K Designs. Finished it off with a button and some hemp.  

 Please come on over and join us at The Card Concept…I would love it if you would!  You should see what the DT did this week!  Very beautiful work!  Thanks for stopping by,  Nanc’
