Our hostess for January was Miss Jeanette, and these were her instructions:
1. Create a card that reflects our month of hostessing.
2. Use my favorite embellishment.
3. Use my newest papercrafting tool/tools, but it could not be purchased specifically for this challenge.
This is my creation.
My month is July, so I created a Patriot card. I chose a digital image from Deedee's Digital. My coloring was done with colored pencils and Gamsol. My favorite embellishment is ribbon, cording, or hemp and brads. On the card I used silver cording from SU. I did not use any brads on this card, because I used the star gems. My newest tools are oval nestabilities which I used for the sentiment inside the card and a quik stix that I used to place the gems. They both are swiftly becoming my new favorites. I also heat embossed some stars down the left side of the card, and added some sparkle to the fireworks with my Stardust gel pen.
Cardstock: Neenah Solar White, SU Night of Navy, SU Real Red
