This was a project set that I came up with for my ladies to make in class and it all started with this card.
The blue sky was created using an array of blue ink colours, sponged onto whisper white card stock. I love the depth of colour that it created, but being so lovely, I couldn't stop there. I opened the card and it just screamed out for something more ...
… so I gave it more.
It took quite some sponging, but the end result was well worth it.
I loved coupling the deep blues with the shinny silver foil against the brown of the Kraft Cardstock.
We often create standard shaped cards by force of habit, but I do love a long rectangular card from time to time. They may well yield more card stock being this size, be it that you can only create one from a single sheet of A4 cardstock, but they are well worth it.
The sentiment I chose for this card was 'Home for Christmas', which came to me as many of my former flying colleagues from my previous job, will be eager to know if they will indeed be home for christmas this year. It was always an anxious time wanting to know if you'd be home with your family, working away or airborne.
I'm often known for giving handmade treats, like chocolates or biscuits, so to have some of these Food Safe Gift Bags in is a must. They can be so simply embellished to create something quite special to gift giving.
This Satin Ribbon is so luxuriously soft and silky, I just love it. The sheen on it is just beautiful and a great contrast to the matt of the brown kraft.
I hope you like what I've created with this wonderful bundle and a spot of sponging. It's ever so easy to create and yet very effective.
