Ellen here, showing you how you get from one idea to two cards. We all know it’s tough to make so many Christmas cards in the winter period. I don’t like to make the same card over and over again, so I came up with something fun.
First I planned to make a card with a stencil and red, orange and yellow ink. I wanted to cut out a star shape but instead of throwing this away, I thought I’d keep going and make a second card inspired by the first.
Annnnnnnd, Card #2!
As you can see I didn’t use only the same basic elements like the stars in the center of the card, the banners (made with Angel Gwen and Snow Bunny clear stamp sets),… I also have some differences like the bow and the sequins, stamps. Still, the second card was clearly inspired by by the first. I used the same colors for the finishing touches and used the animals (from the Hipster Pets clear stamp set) with their winter outfits.
It’s a brand new month so be sure to link your projects in the linky party (at the top right sidebar of the blog)… Maybe you’ll the next star to shine right here on the Some Odd Girl blog!
