December elements

It's the first Friday of a new month and that means the Christmas countdown begins in earnest but it also means an "elemental" challenge at Daring Cardmakers. We have a very festive picture for inspiration his month (it's at the end of this post if you didn't arrive via the DCM blog) - just pick at least three elements to help kick-start your project.

I chose the wooden floorboards, heart, five-point star, script and sans serif font combo, and the red and white from the colour scheme and made a simple card that has a bit of a Scandi feel to it, as do some of the elements in the picture.

Wood grain (Darkroom Door)
Merry Stamp & Cut (Hero Arts)

Smooth white

Brilliance by Tsukineko (Pearlescent Chocolate)

Detail white embossing powder
Heart die
Star punch (Fiskars)
Confetti die (Mama Elephant)
Corner Chomper

Here's the picture for this month.

Thanks for stopping by!
