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.

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

Paper:
Smooth white
Kraft
Red

Ink:
Brilliance by Tsukineko (Pearlescent Chocolate)

Other:
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!
