Cupcake Challenge 61

Hello everyone, this is another scheduled post for while I'm away, so hopefully it has worked and you will be able to see it! Cupcake Challenge 61 has a theme of buttons and stitching and this week we are sponsored by The Creative Cottage

This is one of the many christmas cards I have made to sell using my WOJ Willow with Lantern stamp. It is coloured with distress inks and highlighted with stickles. The papers are DCWV from the luxury stack (I think), not very christmasy, but I think they work well on a christmas card as they have a lovely feel. For my button and stiching element I have pleated my ribbon and sewed it in place, then hand stitched my button on. I have used a cuttlebug die for the large snowflake and my MS punch for the smaller ones, with a brad and spacer in the centre of each.

Finally, the usual close up.

Card/Paper: Black and white card, DCWV - Luxury stack
Stamps: WOJ - Willow with Lantern, Sentiment - Studio G
Colouring: Distress inks - tattered rose, vintage photo, black soot, fired brick, peeled paint, spiced marmalade
Embellishments: Stickles, ribbon, button, brads, spacers
Tools: Nesties, cuttlebug, snowflake die, MS snowflake punch, water brush

Thanks for looking x
