Hi peeps - hope your weekend has been relaxing and enjoyable.
This is my fourth week of a six-week Guest Designer Spot for The Crafty Pad, and I am really enjoying working with Debbie and her team.
This week at The Crafty Pad the Challenge is to make a Christmas card with a triangle theme - either a triangular shaped card, or a triangle on your card! Look forward to seeing what you come up with! Full details, and inspiration from the DT, can be found by clicking on the link above. The winner will receive one of Debbie's lovely stamps, and a one-week GDT spot with The Crafty Pad.
For my card this week, I stamped the Christmas Ted Baubles onto acetate and attached this behind  a triangular aperture which I cut from a 6" square white card (covering the unsightly bits inside with a matching piece of card).  The large circle greeting stamp, which comes with the baubles set, has been stamped inside the card, but when the card is closed it appears to be one of the baubles on the acetate (honest, it really does)!! You will see what I mean from the close-up pic. which shows the card open. Pink ribbon and pink gems are from my stash, and I used Fiskars Paper Edgers"Clouds" to trim the bottom of the card. (I resisted using Glamour Dust, and am now suffering withdrawal symptoms).
Have fun - love and hugs, Sylvia xxxx
