QKR Design team #198 - Christmas in July
Last week the theme at QKR Stampede was paper piecing, and I decided to go that route again. I pieced the head piece and also the robe. In retrospect I wish I had found a better piece of DP for the robe - it needs a bit more color. (If you have not done paper piecing, my advice to you is to select a fairly light colored DP so it is easy to see the lines to cut.) I also used favorite style - lots of light colored embossing. I used a shimmery champagne colored cs (Recollections) for embossing and stamping, as well as for the card base. I do not yet have a "star" embossing folder, so I substituted the snowflakes. I used a gold pen to color the rays of one, and topped it with a
punched from gold glitter cs, though it does not really show on the screen. I also used a bit of cord with a metallic thread for the head dress.
If I decide to mass produce this card for Christmas I may just leave the image uncolored. My preference is to use the same image for all of our cards.
