New year elements

A third of January gone already - eek! Hope it's not too late to wish everyone a very happy and peaceful new year.

Of course a new month means an "elemental" challenge at Daring Cardmakers, see the end of this post for the lovely inspiration picture Shabneez chose for us this month. As ever, just choose at least three elements from the picture to kickstart your project.

I chose the shell, burlap, coiled white thread and a translucent circle to make a masculine birthday card. The burlap is stamped through an aperture cut with a Nestie so it's directly on the card base rather than being a separate layer.

Stamps (all retired or from companies sadly no longer with us):
Antique Engravings by Hero Arts
Burlap backgrounder by Cornish Heritage Farms
Big Day Today by Waltzingmouse Stamps

Paper:
Bristol board
Kraft
Vellum

Ink:
Adirondack dye ink by Ranger (Latte)
Brilliance by Tsukineko (Pearlescent Chocolate)

Other:
White crochet thread
White Enamel Accents by Ranger
Circle Nestabilities by Spellbinder
Corner Chomper



Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful card! I took me a few minutes to realize that the burlap is a stamp ;-)... I like how you put the elements together.
