Fusion and Festive Friday inspired!

Hello my friends,

My card today was inspired by the photos at Festive Friday and Fusion.



Can you believe it-I have patterned paper, die cuts, glitter card, embossing and a decorative background, all in one card! Yes, I really did make this! It turned out completely differently than I imagined but once I started I just kept getting different ideas and I have even followed the sketch at Fusion-not done very often! 

Here is where the inspiration came from:

Fusion-the doilies in the bacground, the silver, the music paper and based on the sketch

Festive Friday-the presents wrapped in pink and Kraft, the stars hanging on the tree-even my pink DSP has baby stars, the touches of gold-my sentiment.

I will also enter this into the 'Krafty Christmas' at The Card Concept. I am struggling with what style this is?? I would say it is clean and layered however not enough white space for this really...so have I made a 'Shabby, Vintage' card-doilies and the music sheet are kind of vintage-The Card Concept DT would love to know your thoughts!

I will also enter into Festive 48-Any Xmas card

The stamps I have used are all from Uniko-'decorative doilies' and 'Love Label-Christmas'

An unusual card for me but really fun to make on a dreary Friday afternoon and quite surprisingly, I like it.

  2. The pink with the kraft is fabulous, Sandie ... and with the yummy, shimmery silver it's just gorgeous! Isn't it fun to push our own bounderies from time to time! Anita :)

  11. Yes it is an unusual style for you but I love it. The pink, kraft, silver combo is really different and it works great. Love the music embossing on the sentiment, the spotty edge and the glitttery stars.

  15. Wow Sandie, I'm on a tour in your blog and just clicked "older post" from the previous one and was all "no now I did something wrong, this isn't Sandie's blog anymore". :) How fun you made something so layered for a change! It looks like you had lots of fun when making this. I love that doily stamp. xxx

  16. Pink and kraft? Unlikely pair but I LOVE that combo. The silver gives it a festive glow... perfect!

  17. Kraft, silver and pink = one eye-catching combination, especially with the images you've chosen. Whatever it may be 'defined' as, I think it's just STUNNING!
