Partridge in a pear tree
Good Tuesday morning all, I hope you had a good week-end and have an equally good week, as I have said at the bottom of this post a very different card from me again this week. My goodness, I am really out of my comfort zone but really enjoying it. Thank you all for taking the time to visit my blog, where you will always be more than welcome. Have a good day everyone.
8x8 Black card
Creative Expressions- Vintage Silver card
CE card- Black
CE card- white
Mari bu feathers
CE- Partridge in a pear tree stamp range
CE- Diamond sparkles
Sue Wilson- Festive collection- Pine Bough
Gold thread from my stash
Cosmic Shimmer- Gold & Silver embossing powder
Spellbinders- Heirloom 2012 baubles die

Tim Holtz- Black soot distress ink
I started with my black 8x8 card, I then cut a slightly smaller piece of card in silver, then another slightly smaller in white card. I then cut an aperture using Heirloom 2012 largest die in the middle of all three, and then embossed the white card with tiny dots EF. Then I put sticky pads on the back of the silver and white card for dimension and Matt and layered them. I stamped the large pear four times and heat embossed two in silver and two in gold and cut them out., then scored them all down the centre folded them along the score line and glued them together to make a bauble and did the same for the four leaves. I used Cosmic shimmer dries clear glue through the middle and around the edges of the pears and put diamond sparkles on the glued areas, then put a length of gold thread through the centre of the pear bauble and glued it to the middle Matt of silver card. Then using the Pine bough dies I cut 3 of the pine and 1 of the twigs and arranged them to the side of the bauble aperture. I then stamped a partridge and coloured it with water colour pencils, cut it out and mounted it on top of the pine and twigs. Finally I cut a sentiment out and while still in the die I gave it a shadow using black soot, attached sticky pads to the back and adhered it to the bottom of my card.
The first card I made for Creative Expressions was very different for me, and this one is even more so. I really hope you like my 2nd attempt. Please feel free to leave a comment. I'll look forward to hearing them.
Hopefully I will get some time to make a usual Tina card at some point this week, as last week was manic. Because Claire was taken back into hospital.
Kind Regards :-)
