Merry Monday #30

Hey Everyone

Ok, so for those who are new to my blog you’ll probably notice I don’t really make a lot of punch art cards.  Generally because I’m lazy and also because crystal effects and I don’t mix! So for my last week of Guest Designing at Merry Monday (thanks heaps Lesley for having me – I’ve had a ball! Where did those 3 months go?) I decided to give punch art another go.  Here’s the sketch that Lesley has provided this week:

I made my card as a follow up to this card that I created a few weeks ago. So somewhere down the chimney Santa has 180’d to end up coming feet first – but for all we know he may’ve limbered up with a pilates class in the Christmas off-season! 🙂  I made my tinsel by cutting a piece of cardstock into the shape and added heaps of crystal effects and some retired chunky glitter.  I think the crystal effects ended up more on my hands than on the cardstock.

As I’m writing this and taking another look at my card – I realised I may’ve gone back in time with this 70’s looking fireplace and mission brown wallpaper.  It probably isn’t the most modern of fireplaces these days, oh well – a bit of render will fix anything lol.

Anyway I had fun making this card and even more fun playing along each week with Lesley’s challenges.  I hope you can join us at Merry Monday – click here to take you to the challenge blog and check out the gorgeous cards the Design Team have created.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. What a cool card Narelle, I laughed when I saw it (in spite of myself!!) The punch art idea is so clever and the fireplace is perfect!! I love the vintage feel!!!

  2. This is SOOOOOO cute! I rarely do punch art either although I have a whole folder FULL of samples, just in case I get unlazy enough to do it too!!! It’s the “scenery” part that I have trouble with…but you rocked it all!

  3. Oh My…this is so stinkin’ cute! I love everything about it and there’s so much texture & detail!Well done! I like the retro look of the 70’s, I wouldn’t change a thing = )

  4. You really know how to create a fun scene for a Christmas card 🙂 Those boots are too stinkin’ cute, but the fireplace bricks really caught my eye! Awesome!!
