Sentimental Sundays: Christmas in July


Hello everyone! I am SO very late with this week’s Sentimental Sundays post!! It’s Thursday already!! Without further ado lets begin!

This week's challenge is:
Christmas in July 

(plus a sentiment)

Our sponsor this week:

Using this colour palette from Just Inspirational Challenges:


I am using Bundled Penguin. I didn’t have a Christmas themed stamp or any that would suit the card so I chose a Hello instead.

Kept my card pretty simple, designed the a pale bold stripe background on PS and printed it out with the image, it was looking very flat to me so I printed the penguin again , fussy cut it and placed it on dimensional tape. Much better! Added some sparkle here and there and done! Hope you like it!

Sentimental Sundays: You’ve Been Framed! + FREEBIE!!

Hello everyone! I am back with a  new challenge over at Sentimental Sundays and this time I have brought you a freebie too! It’s been ages since I have added a digi freebie sentiment for you guys, I was asked to make this one and I thought I’d share here too! Scroll to the bottom of the post for both JPEG and PNG versions.
This week's challenge is:
You've been FRAMED 
(plus a sentiment)
I don’t usually get to share my commission work here on the blog but if you want to take a lookey here is my FB page Glitter & Swirls (a page widget is also present on the right bar), so I thought I’d share this for a change. This is a card box I made for a very floral and dimensional card. I always give my cards out in coordinating (separate) gift bags but sometimes for a special someone or a special occasion, clients ask for boxes.
This colour combination and this card design in particular is a favourite! All flowers are handmade except for the daisies (I used a punch for those and of course the tiny retro flower on the box), the pearls are actually absolutely tiny buttons! They look so cute in person!
I added a ribbon the side as its not a regular card – wanted to give it a booklet feeling (it is 6x6 inches btw).
When you untie the ribbon on the left you have a big photo mat cum pocket. I had to blur the personal messages on the right side to maintain privacy of my client.
When you lift open the right flap it reveals another place to write on and the back of the right flap has the same photo mat cum pocket.
These are the BIG tags/flaps that go in the pocket. The card opens up to 6 x 18 inches!!!
I have so much work on my page, if you don’t have an FB account no worries.. I will keep posting my commissioned projects here more often than I do.
Here is your freebie:

Till next time!
