I took some time out for Mom last night and created a card for Cath's Trigger Tuesday Challenge over at Moxie Fab World. This week's challenge was to create a card based on the following trigger photo:
Here is my card:
I created a card base of white cardstock and a panel in light grey and embossed the gray cardstock with a canvas impressions plate. I cut a curved piece of white cardstock and topped it with glitter to give the feeling of a glittery snowdrift. I die-cut the tree from gray cardstock and stamped the tree image in Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. I added to glue to the front of the tree and coated it in some tinsel glitter before adhering the tree to the card. I added pearls to the tree and stamped the sentiment before attaching the the completed the panel to the card base.
I was inspired by the trigger in the following ways:
- Theme: Christmas
- Colors: The lovely grays, creams and tans- who says that you need bright colors to make a striking card?
- Embellishments: I added glitter and pearls to mimic the adornment on the bird's breast and wing
- The bird: I curved the snowdrift to reflect the curves of the bird and its feathers.
- The trigger item itself: The trigger is a pillow, I embossed the gray cardstock with a canvas impression plate to reflect the fabrc and adhered the stamped panel to a card base with some cushy pop dots.
Hope you like my take on the trigger. Thanks for stopping by!
