You might choose white-on-white ... or to be inspired by the other elements like the deer, pearls, lace, letters, snowflakes or a frame. Or you might just create in that wonderful shabby chic style.
Here is how we were inspired:
Stephanie says, "I started with Alexandra Renke elements and this week's Sunday Stamps Sketch. I punched three circles from Alexandra's gorgeous papers and then used her Orient Mandala Stencil with Iced Spruce Distress ink in several places on the background. I finished with pearl flourishes and a typed font sentiment. Inspired by the header, I snuck in a couple of Alexandra's die cut frames behind the circles."
Lauren says, "Ok, so, this feels like a bit of a cheat on my part, because as Stephanie mentioned, I designed the header, so obviously it's a style that I like and for which I have lots of stuff that works. So I've done a very literal translation. On the other hand, something I somehow hadn't realized until I was nearly finished, is that the header actually does not have ANY flowers on it. (Srsly... HOW did that even happen?!) Luckily I have corrected that omission with my card, which means I can join the Allsorts "Christmas Flowers" Challenge! and the handsome diecut deer means I'm eligible for My Time to Craft's "Christmas Animals" Challenge, yay!"
And one lucky randomly drawn participant will get a fun prize - 2 of my favorite sets of Gina K. Designs Dies and a Kelly Purkey Christmas Stamp Set.
