Cute Card Thursday Challenge 21 - In The House

I do like the Cute Card Thursday challenges as I can use anything!

The challenge this week is to make a card with the theme of 'In The House' , anything which can be found in the home is fine.

I'd already had the card stock ready - left over from last year (I'd printed it, looked at it, put it down, looked at it again and then ran out of time). I've chalked the edges of the card - lightly hammered cream card, on which the backing has been printed directly - its a Christmas download from Mad About Cards. The Christmas Pudding recipe sentiment is also from the same collection and has been layered onto matt gold card.
The two embellishments I have made myself from fimo. The Christmas Pudding turned out a little chunkier than I imagined, so I am now on the look-out for a cheap pasta sheet making machine!

I tried to make the holly and berries from fimo but it was far too fiddly and the holly looked more like a strange green blob, so I've punched them from green card and red glitter card.

  • Backing paper - Traditional Christmas download from Mad About Cards
  • Embellishments - Handmade by me and available from September to buy from Tip Top Toppers
  • Ribbon - Thin ruby red satin ribbon from Blackburn market
