Christmas in July



C'est un défi "esprit récup" de l'année dernière sur le forum Cards and Stamps Addicts qui a été le point de départ de cette carte : il fallait réaliser une carte en utilisant le papier de l'intérieur d'une enveloppe usagée. Personnellement, les enveloppes que je reçois ont souvent un intérieur gris pas très joli, donc j'ai bien laissé traîner le défi, mais je gardais l'idée dans un coin de tête. Finalement, j'ai reçu une enveloppe "écologique" avec un intérieur vert et j'en ai fait un arbre de Noël... Les fichiers de découpe pour l'arbre et le noeud rouge au pied de l'arbre viennent tous les deux de chez Bird's cards, j'ai créé le "Joyeux Noël" directement dans Silhouette Studio.

There was a recycling challenge last year on the Cards And Stamps Addicts forum: one had to use the inside of received enveloppes on a card. The enveloppes I receive are often of dull grey so I did not participate in the challenge, but I kept the idea in the back of my mind... I finaly received this recycled enveloppe with a green inside and decided to use it for the Christmas tree. The tree and the bow at the tree base are cut using Bird's cards cut files. The "Joyeux Noël" wording was created by me directly in Silhouette Studio.
I would like to submit my card to the following challenges: Crafty Girls (anything goes), Creative Knockouts (Christmas in July), DL.ART (Christmas in July), Southern Girls (Christmas is a-coming), Crafting For All Seasons (Christmas in July), Inky Impressions (no designer paper -- hope the enveloppe doesn't count as DP), Kraftin' Kimmie (anything goes).
