Hello girls! After a bit of panicing, my new Penny Black stamp arrived in the post. I struggle to get craft things over here in Spain so I end up having to get everything posted over. My Mum posted my new stamp to me via air mail and it took almost two weeks to get here.... I was beginning to think it had been lost but think it has been via the moon and back! Anyway, I made a card last night for Penny Black Challenge 21 and this week's Papertake Challenge as they both had a sparkle theme. The above picture shows the card when it is closed and below shows the inside - neither of which look very sparkly, but I promise they do!!
I have used red and black card, paper from the dovecraft contemporary christmas range, the penny black stamp is called favourite time and it is coloured with whispers pens, and the sentiment was done on my computer using the font Tempus Sans ITC. I used two silver brads on the sentiment and raised it up on dimension pads and a small piece of red ribbon to tie the card closed. Now for the sparkle.... I have used holly green stickles on the christmas trees on the front of the card and on the holly leaves and christmas tree on the inside of the card, christmas red stickles on the holly berries, the band in her hair, and the ribbon on the present and finally silver stickles on the ground...... I can't believe they don't show!!!
