Hope and Chances Charity Kit - December 2020

The December Hope and Chances Charity Kit is being sold to support the Last Chance Animal Rescue.

The kit has everything to make a 'Thank You' card, other than adhesive and gems.  I know the 'Thank You' sentiment was in the bag from Christine, but I couldn't find it anywhere when I made the card so I decided to make a Christmas card.  I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment (Woodware Festive Verse) into the centre of the panel using dark green ink to match the poinsettia leaves.

The centre panel was attached to the card with a piece of a foam sheet and I attached clear gems into the middle of the flowers. I didn't have any gold coloured gems, but thought the clear ones matched the silver matting layers.

I really like the instructions for the silver matt layer behind the fancy square.  The silver layer was cut down the centre so that it would form a shadow on both sides of the white layer.  I must remember that tip when matting and layering on other cards.

I also found the 'Thank You' panel after I had finished the card, although I think I prefer it with the Christmas verse.

A beautiful card Kath and love the red poinsettias and your replacement sentiment making this a Christmas card and not a thank you card works wel, and the shadow idea with the silver layer behind the bottom layer of the central die cut looks great giving it more dimension. x
