This months Papertrey InkSenior DT challenge is all about adding photos to a Holiday card...and let me tell you that is one of the hardest challenges for me! I've always struggled with being able to incorporate photos of any kind and have avoided any publication calls involving photos on cards like the plague! LOL! So with my deepest stretch of creativity here are not one but two cards I created for the challenge.
The first thing that popped into my head was this photo with Pine's Rustic Snowflakes saying! I love this saying... so sweet and applicable!
I printed the photo on shimmery cardstock after I had altered the photo by adding a text box for the sentiment. I wish you could see the shimmer... it's pretty IRL. The sentiment and card base are in Pure Poppy.
After photographing that card I was frustrated that the "special" aspect of the card wasn't really showing online... so I made another! :)
I made this little card, using the same stamps, that's focal image can come off to make an ornament. Sweet Blush was a pretty close match to the lighter pink in Ella's hat. I stamped the sentiment in Dark Chocolate and the snowflakees in Encore Silver. The snowflake punch is the Clever Lever extra jumbo Marvy snowflake... a great size for cards.
I hope you will check out the other Senior DT member Blogs...They always do an amazing job!
Becky from the release team played along for fun as well!
Oh... and I hope you will come back tomorrow when I host a little stamp set giveaway! ;)
