merry in august (Moxie Fab, KIS)

If you're still contemplating submitting cards for publication calls, here's another reason to just do it.  When challenges roll around as the various holidays actually approach, you've got a stash of non-published cards to choose from. Practical, eh?

May I introduce you to today's card which came about in one of  "those moments" - the PP lays on top of another piece of PP and I think "hey, that's cool."  And thus a card is born.

Very understated.  Except for the big swash of gold paint that is.  Used StazOn to be sure the sentiment would stamp on the paint.  And added a little touch of gold paint to the top of the bow too.  Is it clearly a Christmas card to you?

Stay tuned for the card I was working on when the idea for this card was born.

  4. Hey Maria, I thought you had made this for the CAS- colours and sketches challenge - it fits perfectly!

  5. Great card, Maria!
    The same thing happened to me. I created 19 cards for the Paper Crafts holiday issue and only one got picked up. So I have 18 cards ready to hand out at Christmas now. :)

  6. Wow, die ist ja toll! Erstmal: Auf jeden Fall ist das eine Weihnachtskarte! Definitiv. Mir gefällt das goldene "Gepinsel" total, und die Art, wie du das PP versetzt aufeinander geklebt hast - großartig!
    Vielen Dank für's Mitmachen bei KEEP IT SIMPLE!,
