I see so many cards posted on blogs using stripy or spotty papers and they look simply fabulous, but whenever I try to use them the cards look really terrible. So this time I decided to try a different approach.... instead of using more than one paper I went for a single striped background paper and kept it as simple as possible.
The paper I used is from a pad called 'Cosy Christmas Collection' which was free with a magazine and the image is one of the Lili of the Valley die-cuts. I added Memory Box Frostyville Border and Marriane Creatables LR0189 mistletoe die-cuts and the flowers, icicle and sentiment are from my stash. I'm pretty pleased with the finished result and maybe I'll start using stripes a bit more now.
I shall enter this in the following challenges
Die-ing for a challenge 'Spots and/or stripes'
Cupcake Craft challenge 'Two's Company'
Totally Gorjuss challenge 'Traditional Christmas Colours'
Thanks for taking the time to visit and for any comments you leave...... I really appreciate it.
