I have chosen to play with my newly acquired Mosaic Madness set from Stampin'Up. When I say new it's a couple of months ago now, but this is the first time I've had time to play with it and I love it.
The background is embossed with a folder from the set using Cryogen White card, it has a nice delicate sparkle to it.
The baubles are stamped and embossed with silver using a paint chart from a local DIY shop, it's great as it has co-ordinated shades of the same colour. To my horror I went to a well known DIY shop to find that these charts are no longer available there, I'm just hoping that I can find them somewhere else.
Once cool I used the punch from the Mosaic set to cut out all the baubles. Each one has tiny foam pads on the back which also hold the silver thread in place. All the threads are taken to the top of the card to give the impression they are hanging in front of the background.
I have used peel offs to spell my greeting across my card, to stamp four times and get it right every time would be great but it doesn't usually happen, so this way I can make sure I don't have to start again!
This card is for a couple of challenges as well as a mid month reminder at CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra, if you have any Christmas creations to show then come and join us, we would love to see them.
