November elements

Alarmingly we're into another month already! As Christmas is fast approaching, our challenges at Daring Cardmakers are starting to have a bit of a festive theme. The mood board for this month could lend itself to other things though if you don’t celebrate Christmas or are still in avoidance mode!

As usual with a “elemental” challenge, just chose at least three elements from the inspiration picture to kickstart your project. I chose the silver ribbed bauble,  NOEL sentiment on separate tiles and the colour scheme. I used a piece from my scraplings pile for the card base.

The bauble is embossed with silver powder on silver mirror card - I think it turned out with quite a stylish look.

Stamps:
Holiday Ornaments (Waltzingmouse Stamps, no longer with us)

Paper:
Bristol board 
Silver mirror card

Ink:
Versafine by Tsukineko (Onyx Black)
Tim Holtz Distress ink by Ranger (Pumice Stone)
Versamark by Tsukineko 

Other:
Silver detail embossing powder
Square Nestabilities by Spellbinder
Silver gel pen
Corner Chomper 

Here’s our inspiration this month:


We’d love to see which elements inspire you!

It did indeed turn out stylish - its fabulous. Love the off-page bauble. I find it quite surprising and exciting to see just how well these colours work for a Christmas card

A very stylish scrapling, love how you brought the bauble to the bottom of the card leaving plenty of white space. Great take on the elemental challenge!
