Time For Tea Sponsors for the AAA Card Challenge #169

Hi there!!

Jo here with a fun card for a great Challenge we are sponsoring over at AAA Cards.

The challenge theme is 'Made in Minutes - with a Twist: Christmas in July'

We are sponsoring the challenge with a £15 Gift Card to spend on goodies from the Time For Tea Design’s Store!

I struggle with quick cards as you know so this was a real challenge indeed! 
This may not be a few minutes to make but was quite quick for me once I'd come up with the concept.

I also really struggle with Clean & Simple so this really was as simple as I get! haha!

I do love how this card turned out and it was lots of fun to make.

My idea was to create a simple background of a sparkly moon set against a deep blue sky. First, I splattered my card base with metallic paints. I then added some ink to a square of our Bluebird Cardstock and splattered with white metallic paint. I cut a circle from the centre using our Circle of Love Dies.

I coloured and die cut the images from the Be Owlsome stamp set and die cut the stars from the set using some gold Cardstock. I used the same Cardstock to cut my sentiment.

Before adhering all my elements I stamped the sentiment ‘happy’ in embossing ink at the top of my circle aperture. I used Wow gold embossing powder to set my ink.
My night sky piece was adhered with foam tape as were my owl and the branch he is sitting on.
The stars & Christmas sentiment were added with liquid glue.

Once my images were coloured and all my pieces die cut, this really was a quick card to make. This is officially the first Christmas Card I have made this year and with a set that isn’t even Christmas themed so I’m even more thrilled with the result! Why not try this with some of your non-Christmas themed sets too!

I hope you enjoyed the card today. Head over to the AAA Card Challenge Blog to find out more about this months theme and how you can enter to win our fabulous prize! You’ll also find loads more inspiration from the AAA Card Challenge Design Team.
