Adding Color to Cover Plates.

I used a make It Market kit by Betsy Veldman for this card.  I water colored the cover plate and created a water colored background for this card. The cover plate fits an  A2 size card so I cut my card base at 9 by 5 3/4 and fold at 4 1/2 so I have a little border around my card.  

I made this card for the PTI Make It Monday Challenge.  Here

Christmas in July

Cheery Lynn's challenge is Christmas in July which gave me an opportunity to make my first Christmas card. I had a paper pack that I bought several years ago that had this wonderful scene as part of a scrap book page.  I cut it out and mounted it behind a circular frame and popped that up on another die cut.  The poinsettia is  a Spellbinders die, and the holly leaves and fir branches are Cheery Lynn.  I also used a Cheery Lynn holly corner die but tore it apart to make it fit.  The Sentiment is  also Cheery Lynn.  I cut it from a paper pack and white card and glued them together to get some dimension.I also embossed it to give it some shine.  The white panel is embossed but that does not show well in the picture. I will enter this in the Cheery Lynn Challenge. Here
