Die Cut Divas ~ September Challenge

The current challenge at Die Cut Divas is "Holidays", with our sponsor Cheapo Dies

Before joining the Die Cut Divas team, I hadn't heard of Cheapo Dies. They have a huge selection of brand name dies. They are offering a $15 gift certificate to our monthly winner. Will it be you?

Here's my card. No surprise, it's a Christmas card. I have so much Christmas stuff!

I started with a piece of 96 lb watercolor paper, a Carmine Red Zig Clean Color Real Brush marker and a water brush. I scribbled onto the watercolor paper with the marker and diluted and moved the color around with a water brush. Even though the marker is labelled red, it did take on a pink hue. I put the watercolor paper aside for a bit to make sure that the water and ink dried. I then used Elizabeth Craft Design's Ornament Set #2, which was available at Cheapo Dies (now sold out) to die cut the background from the watercolored panel and the outline with silver shimmer cardstock. There are many choices of Christmas ornament dies at Cheapo Dies that you could use to create a similar card. Here's a close up of the ornament.

I found some scripty red and pink Christmas patterned paper to provide the background for my ornament. I added some silver cord to complete the ornament. I popped the ornament up with some dimensionals. I put everything onto some light gray cardstock.
